EP-COVER

Beautiful songstress Esther Holt launches her solo debut ‘Countless Verse’.

I met the Snowy Belfast singer randomly out on the town in Prahran (Melbourne, Australia) one week-night whilst we were both chillin’, in a bar so empty you that could hear the tumbleweeds drifting across the dance-floor. We had a lovely chat that evening, became friends & proud to be plugging Esther Holt’s 1st foray into solo territory.

Delightful soft, angelic vocals & warm piano tones…

Close your eyes & just float away..

Scaramouche: Kick-ass rock perfect for pumpin’… up the workout..

Posted on Updated on

Scaramouche

Scaramouche are back on the radar!

This rogue, driving rock band sparked my interest in 2010 whilst working as music supervisor for Ballistyx Snowboard Show (Channel GO!).

My fave tracks, ‘Set Sail’ and ‘Access Denied’, are from the band’s 1st release, the ‘Access Denied’ EP & the band recently released 2nd EP ‘Welcome to the Parlour’. 

Kick-ass edgy rock tunes perfect for pumpin’ up the workout, boarding on sweet sweet powder or hittin’ the surf!

Scaramouche are just ace!
