Newstead Sessions- Above The Bit

Above the Bit is Luke Watt and Nigel Wearne’s collaboration: a historical based songwriting project turned into a full length album produced by Matt Walker at Stovepipe Records. The record features backing vocals from host Mandy Connell, and a raft of fabulous musicians including Corinn Strating (Flute), Danny McKenna, (Drums) Steve Hadley (Bass). 

MCT Sessions – Sally Dastey

We were thrilled to hear Sally chat about songwriting, TIDDAS and the Australian Sound. Mandy suggests to Dastey that her singing style and the success of TIDDAS have changed the sound of Australian women singer songwriters, influencing perhaps The Waifs, Missy Higgins, and many more.
