Louis Valentine

Louis Valentine

Like many musicians, Louis Valentine spent much of his youth practising his moves in front of a mirror. Sometimes he held a tennis racquet, other times a shitty old guitar. One time he used a cucumber as a saxophone. These days he records himself with an iPhone.

Louis writes music that he likes to listen to. He digs soul and folk, blues and country and tries to weave them together into something funky. His lyrics celebrate the ordinary: an ode to the Victorian High Country one minute, a tongue-in-cheek lament about catching late night taxis the next.

Louis Valentine is bringing his strange, but well practiced moves and his souly-folkie-country tunes to The Edinburgh Castle on Friday, 3rd November for a one-off, solo and intimate show.

Shaky Stills

Shaky Stills play Country and Western, Western Swing, Rockabilly and original Alt-roots with a backbone rhythm section made of Rhythm and Blues. They are aplayers band, made from Australia's finest, with Ed Bates' pedal steel at the core of the sound, Patty and the band's song writing and playing is genuine and seriously good.

"Cruising down Route 66 in a mid-‘60s Cadillac on a warm summer’s day is the image that’s conjured upon listening to 16 Years, the opening cut from Shaky Stills’ new album Genuine Moonshine. The keyboard cruises along and the pedal steel of Ed Bates shines in and out of the mix as the band grooves out in an extended instrumental, making it an impressive opener. If you’re a fan of bands like Raised By Eagles and Wagons, then I reckon you might just get around Shaky Stills.
 
Led by the lead vocal and guitar duties of Patrick Carr, Genuine Moonshine easily works together as a succinct set of ten tracks. From Dark of Night to Quarter To Three, these tracks are complimented by the sweet backing vocals of Rikki Arnot that work with Carr’s to create a rich, full, and smooth vocal sound. Killer performances from all members make this a definite highlight of local Melbourne releases for 2017.
 
Like a bar stool out of a backroom bar in Nashville with plenty of stories to tell, Genuine Moonshine gets better with every listen."  Tex Miller Beat Magazine
