Julie-Anne Marshall is an independent singer-songwriter from Adelaide who is influenced by the soft rock style of the 70’s, her songs are lightly touched by a myriad of genres ranging from rock, folk, country, jazz to blues and ballads. ‘The Dawn’ single is the interlude between her debut album ‘Bluebird’ released 2016 and her follow-up album due early 2018. The Dawn talks to the heart of anyone who has had to re-discover their inner strength. It’s emotive and follows the ilk of Julie-Anne, her songs are lyric driven, her vocals are earthy yet ethereal.

Skeleton Blues lays bare the key influences in Luke Escombe’s music. It includes covers of songs by Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan, as well as two electrifying renditions of the old spirituals ‘O Death’ and ‘John the Revelator,’ Although presenting a more serious side to his song writing, there is still a healthy dose of Luke’s sly humour in the first single ‘Punctuation Blues,’ a track which combines a Lightning Hopkins-inspired guitar groove with such lines as ‘punctuation is like making love/ you gotta know when to put it in,’ Meanwhile, previously released songs such as ’21st Century Blues,’ ‘Confidence,’ and ‘Axe in the House’ take on a deeper meaning when stripped of their band backings. As the title suggests, these are songs which have been cut down to their very bones.

The solid grooves, stellar guitar, electrifying harmonica, and vocals make this album one of the best blues releases of 2016.
