Mick Daley (The Re-Mains)

Mick Daley is the frontman for The Re-Mains, a band renowned as one of the the hardest driving independent bands in the country. They  first started their country rock ‘n’ roll crusade in 2002, and ahve since played more rodeos, outback dives and inner-city hellholes than any other band in Australia.

They’ve also played Splendour in the Grass, six Tamworth Country Music Festivals, five East Coast Blues and Roots, three Darwin Festivals, Woodford Folk Festival, Nymagee Outback Fest, Nimbin Mardi Grass, have completed 4 tours of Canada, and played every other bush-bash they could reach. The Re-Mains have released 5 albums, 2 EPs and have had more drummers than Spinal Tap.

Brad Butcher

In 2012, Brad Butcher released his acclaimed self-tilted debut album, which earned him a showcase at BIGSOUND, Australia’s foremost international music conference. Finalist nominations for a range of Australian and international songwriting and artist development awards followed, as well as supports and guest appearances alongside Busby Marou, Bill Chambers, Mark Seymour and Pete Murray.

For his new album, Jamestown, recorded in New Jersey by Grammy-award-winning producer Marc Swersky (Joe Cocker, Diesel), Brad explores the themes of travel and the contrasting lifestyle of a fly-in fly-out worker who always has home in his heart and a guitar close to hand. At the core of it all though is an uncomplicated country bloke striving to connect, inspire and remain true.

Michael David Thomas

Michael David Thomas has been described as a cross between wordsmiths Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, with an honest vocal style reminiscent of the ’60s / ’70s folk singer-songwriters like Paul Simon and James Taylor. He belongs to a rare class of songwriters whose songs can simultaneously reach the head and the heart, make you laugh and cry, and reference the old while still providing a completely unique perspective.

Giving up his former life as a lawyer, Michael changed his name, hit the road with an acoustic guitar and set out on a pilgrimage. His travels took him on an extensive tour playing all around Australia and the US.

Michael’s former band, Breaking Hart Benton, made three records, including an album produced by acclaimed producer Mark Moffat (Crowded House, the Saints, Yothu Yindi, Keith Urban). Now choosing to go it solo, Michael’s first single under his own name, There Must Be Something Else, rides a delicate interplay of strings, electric and acoustic guitars and Michael’s signature twangy vocals. It’s the first single for the emotive EP to come.

In 2015, Michael signed with Airlock Records (Ian HaugPowderfinger), becoming the label’s third singing. Produced by Haug, the EP contains a tantalising mix of well-crafted melodic and up tempo songs and sparser lyrical numbers. Together, Haug and Michael David Thomas brought these ‘folk’ songs to life and captured a fresh, modern sound.
