We're in the country, and country music is part of us. So we present you three stellar acts from the old-time, bluegrass and country traditions.

After releasing her second full-length album in August of 2018, Australian singer-songwriter, Freya Josephine Hollick (main image) was labelled one of five artists leading the new country renaissance by Double J (alongside Kacey Musgraves, Orville Peck, Yola and Colter Wall). She soon travelled to the USA to record an album with Lucinda Williams’ renowned band Buick 6 and guitarist Greg Leisz (known for his work with Beck, Eric Clapton, Aaron Neville, Sheryl Crow). Arriving in Joshua Tree at studio Rancho De La Luna, they recorded Hollick’s third full-length album, a record saturated in the sounds of desert rock and cosmic country, inspired by the likes of Ann Peebles, Allen Toussaint and Gene Clark. With its first single, “The Real World” just released in March 2021, the album is set to be released in early 2022.

Bluegrass musician and comedian Pete Denahy is a man who loves his work. When Pete talks about his own show, he says, "It’s not rocket science; I’m not the best singer, fiddle player or guitar picker in the world, but as far as I know, no one else is doing my show." Which is true: there isn’t another show like it. Pete takes you on a journey that travels from the gold rush days of the mid-19th century to buying toilet paper at your local supermarket. Pete says his most successful song was 'Sort of Dunno Nothin' which was a hit on YouTube and made the ARIA Top 100. His awards include: Country Music Awards Bush Ballad of the Year 2011' Instrumental of the Year 2013, 2014, 2016; and Bluegrass recording of the Year 2016.
