There is something about the blues that just pulls at my emotions. Mike Mcarthy's 'dirt box' style blues guitar makes the body move and the head sway which is healing. With a soulful voice and his beautiful wife Sophie's harmonies this album takes you away to wild places! This album is a live recording which makes it so special. The acoustics of the old church are amazing and the authentic sounds of the audience make you wish you were there when it all went down! The first track 'Nothin' Without Him' pulls you in and holds you from song to song. The perfect road trip album or when sitting by the fire on a cold winters night. Thanks Mike & Sophie for sharing this special gift with us.
Check out all Mike's links some awesome clips of Mike playing his music below!

Our new favourite Pop/Soul artist Meg Mac from Melbourne is making waves in Australia and Internationally. She won a competition at Falls Festival and had some success with live shows. Now she is touring America with D'Angelo!! What the!?? The Meg Mac EP is full of soulful piano, solid beats and powerful vocals.
Our favourite track? Grandma's Hands cover of Bill Withers with epic beats, smooth synth sounds. She nailed it!
There is something special in the Ocean on the Central Coast. It has produced another fantastic singer songwriter Joel Leggett! His first offering to us is the 'Give it to the Ocean' ep which makes you want to go down by the seaside and let everything go and take in the magic of our coastline! At only 18 yrs old Joel already has a talent with mixing beautiful lyrics with finger picking acoustic guitar and he proves it's all you need. You will most likely find Joel playing on the streets around Terrigal, at an intimate house show, markets and more. It's clear he is passionate, creative and very talented.
Listen & Purchase EP: 'Give it to the Ocean' iTunes, Also on Spotify!
Our favourite track: Obviously we love all three tracks but 'Hold you' tugs at the heart strings and holds an emotional story with deep bass sounding strumming which resonates through your whole body.
Well done Joel! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
