“Some Memories Never Die”:
An Evening of Words and Music
Jeff Lang has built a reputation for making startling and influential music that is accomplished, intricate, gutsy, melodic and loaded with soul. Often taking unexpected turns, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a stylistically diverse catalogue of over 30 albums.
But with every well-credentialed artistic soul, evolving and diving into the unknown is a step that is never too far away and so in 2019 Jeff sat down and began to write what would become his first book.
“Some Memories Never Die”, the resulting memoir of three decades on the road, contains memories of gigs where the pay was akin to blood money, reflections on how the road’s twists and turns can be lightened by the presence of fellow travellers and occasionally darkened by them too. Each purchase of the book comes bundled with a download code for an exclusive 22 track album of re-recorded versions of Jeff Lang classics explicitly produced for the book’s publication.
To celebrate the book’s release, Jeff will hit the highway for a 37 date national tour running from March through to July with each show combining music with an ‘in conversation’ and Q&A session.

The past year has seen The Rubens travel to North America, UK & Europe for headline tours, perform and release their MTV Unplugged Live In Melbourne album, slay the main stage unveiling their collaboration with punk hip-hop star Vic Mensa at Splendour In The Grass AND between all of that, bunker down to write and focus on new music.
As part of their Chucka Bucka’s initiative, the Menangle Mad Men have also embarked on 3 regional tours in the past 18 months – and the Live In Life Tour is another tip of the hat to our music loving friends who may not live near a city – with the band revisiting some old regional favourites as well as some new towns they’ve never played before.
2018 proved to be a landmark year for The Rubens, which saw the release of their third album LO LA RU, including hits ‘Never Ever feat. Sarah’ (2 x Platinum), ‘Million Man’ (Gold) and ‘God Forgot’, a mammoth headline tour across Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Europe and supporting P!NK on her massive 42-date sell out arena tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Unlikely, unexpected, unforgettable, unique, not to be missed!
The musical uniting of Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham (The Waifs) is as unscripted as it is unforeseen.
The unpredictable unfolding of recent events has been the undoing of many as the world has adjusted to an unfamiliar reality. Undeterred and unsatisfied with being unproductive, Felicity and Josh unearthed an unpaved road forward and undertook the journey united, uncovering an uncanny musical unison as they left no song unsung.
Until now, this union has remained undercover, unmasked only to select audiences under the age of 10. Both of Felicity’s daughters were unanimous in their unbridled praise.
“So not uncool” Tia, age 9
“Unicorn” Ellie, age 7
In the face of an uncertain future, music uncontrived and untainted by the demands of fashion will forever remain undefeated. Understated but never unsophisticated, unpretentious and unlike anything else, Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham are poised to unleash songs and stories of undeniable beauty upon hearts and ears. Unless you uncork this fine wine, drink for yourself and understand, you will be unsatisfied and your life will be unhappy.
After 3 best-selling studio albums, 2 EP’s and over 12 years of national and international touring, Owen Campbell has cemented himself as one of Australia’s premier alternative blues/rock exports. He has performed in many corners of the world from the USA, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Spain, Holland, Japan, Hong Kong, India and even performed at the highest blues festival in the world, The Himalayan Blues Festival in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Every album upon release has hit the Top 10 on iTunes Blues Charts in over 10 countries. One of which “Sunshine Road” reached Number 1 on the overall charts (Australia), knocking Adele of the top spot in 2014.
Owen brings a thumping oceanic-like repertoire to performances all over the world. His smouldering guitar work runs from bluesy riffs and soulful finger-picking to lap steel guitar solos using a shot glass slide. His gritty caramel vocals makes this blues maven a global favourite.
“My parents were a big influence,” says Owen. “They introduced me to such an awesome collection of music from such a young age. Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Band, The Rolling Stones. I always loved the variety and diversity to their sounds. My sound has bits of country, soul, roots, and rock. I love the variations.”
Late 2019/2020 has seen the release of Owen’s 5th studio album “Rolling Thunder of Love” which debuted at number 2 on the independent music charts.
