    Elles Bailey Live at Little Rabbit Barn EP Cover

    ELLES BAILEY  | The Road I Call Home Tour 2018 | Live at Little Rabbit Barn | Saturday 27 October  | Plus Special Guests

    Elles Bailey has a talent for crafting and seamlessly weaving rootsy blues, country, and soulful rock, with a contemporary edge. What’s more fate has blessed her with a ‘smoky vocal’ style that perfectly fits her music, after a stint in hospital as a child changed her voice forever. Her debut album Wildfire (Sept 1st 2017) which debuted at no.2 in the iTunes blues Charts was tracked in Blackbird studios Tennessee. Produced by Brad Nowell ‘Wildfire’ assembled a host of Nashville’s finest, including Grammy Award winning guitarist Brent Mason and three-time ‘Musician Hall Of Famer’ Bobby Wood. Blended together back in the UK with the likes of Jonny Henderson (Robyn Ford, Matt Schofield) on Hammond organ and Joe Wilkins on blistering guitar, the result is a unique trans-Atlantic coming together of styles. Reviewers have been wowed by Elles and her debut album with Maverick Magazine gave ‘Wildfire’ top marks (5/5) calling every song ‘Fresh & Original’ And Blues In Britain reminding us that ‘It’s a fact that very few make it to the big stage but Elles Bailey has the necessary talent, the drive, and now the product.’ 2018 starts with a bang with Elles playing the 100 club, London with Climax Blues Band on the 17th January then heading north to play The Great British Rock & Blues Festival in Skegness before embarking on a European tour throughout March & April, May & June.

    JACKIE BRISTOW | Special Guest | Saturday 27 October 2018

    Jackie has had the honor to be the opening act for many of her musical hero's. Opening for Bonnie Raitt in New Zealand on her 2013  "Slipstream" tour was a dream-come-true.  Jackie was invited back 2017 to join Bonnie Raitt on her "Dig in Deep" tour.  Jackie opened for Foreigner 2017 the Steve Miller Band in the US 2016.

    Jackie’s songs have been used repeatedly in Australian and New Zealand film and television hit shows such as "Go Girls," "The Secret Life of Us," "Home and Away," "Outrageous Fortune," "Shortland Street," and "Go Big." Her original song "This is Australia" won Tourism Australia’s nationwide competition and was featured in its worldwide promotional campaigns for three years. Songs from the "Crazy Love" and "Freedom" albums were programmed into rotation at 7,000 Starbucks locations nationwide in the US. 

    ​In 2014, Jackie was awarded New Zealand Southland Music Ambassador of the Year.

     Jackie has proven to be an artist who shows no signs of stopping. 2017 Jackie relocated to the music mecca, Nashville, Tennessee. 

    ​Jackie released her fourth studio album "Shot of Gold" 2016.  It charted her home country New Zealand and received critical acclaim. 


    Nashville based Australian Multi-Award winning Singer/Songwriter Tamara Stewart has long been regarded one of Australia’s finest exports.

    With multiple #1’s to her name in her own releases, Tamara is also the pen behind many of her peer’s musical successes, enjoying multiple chart topping hits and album cuts on some of Australian Country Music’s most successful artists.

    Touring her homeland and headlining festivals for well over 10 years, Tamara has also performed throughout the UK. However, these days, Tamara is a regular on stages in Nashville such as the infamous Bluebird Café, as well as various Songwriting Festivals across the USA.

    Tamara uses her powerful vocals and emotional writing style on her newest album project The Truth The Music and Me to share the deepest most personal body of work to date.

    Being released as a three part series, The Truth The Music and Me- Part 1: RUIN speaks of the initial stage of transformation but as the album is revealed through two more stages, it moves through the process of healing and triumph, with the final offering expected in early 2019.

    Those who are fortunate enough to see Tamara’s show, are treated to this very real, uniquely talented woman who shares and connects in a way that only the truest artists can. A charismatic and seasoned performer, all she needs is a guitar and a microphone, armed with her own story, the audience is transported to a place of self reflection and connection. The audience is left with little doubt as to why Tamara Stewart is now making her mark in the Nashville community and into the USA scene.

    The Truth The Music and Me tells a story. Song by song, part by part and listeners who go on this journey with her can rest assured, this story ends well.

    In fact, if early reviews and responses to this new three part release are anything to go by, we can all be sure that THIS part of Tamara’s story will continue on, very well indeed.
