"Not only have we helped discover many overseas artists we
have a few of our own"

They are all great Aussie Talent!
There are talent contests and karaoke bars and clubs all over Australia and many enter and try their luck there, as some scream and shout

The famous Peter Allen started singing and playing the piano in a small country town PUB as a young boy and steadily progressed to BROADWAY NEW YORK. Not bad for an Aussie brought up in a small OUTBACK town.
There are many stories of famous Australians that have made it in the big time; Olivia Newton John - Helen Ready - John Farnham - The Bee Gees - The Seekers - Kylie Minogue - and the famous Dame Nellie Melba - to mention just a few.
Country music has a great place in our music history and there is much talent bursting onto the world stage.
Places like Tamworth, a medium sized town in New South Wales, is widely recognized, both in Australia and overseas, as Australia's 'Country Music Capital' and the Annual Golden Guitar Festival is now recognized as one of the world's top 10 music FESTIVALS. The town is booked out. The VAN PARKS and camping grounds are full as is every MOTEL and friends home.
Fans come from all over the globe to be involved and watch the performers in pubs, music halls and just busking on the streets of the town.

Leigh Kirley "Blood, Sweat and Gears"
The new album out by this experienced songwriter who has spent most of his life driving trucks is a very professional follow-up to his first "Aussie Truckers' album. Produced and mastered by Keith Kerwin and Steven Sparrow and featuring the vocals of Aussie legend Jon English, this album resonates with the feel and energy of the road at night.
