    JESSICA LUXX

    Adelaide-based country/folk singer-songwriter, Jessica Luxx, has been growing a loyal following over the past few years. She is known for her generous and memorable live shows and has become somewhat of a darling of the local Americana scene. This culminated in the release of her debut single Heavy Lifting last year. The song's themes of uncertainty and loss resonated deeply with many people post-Covid, and it's still a favourite on community radio and playlists. The arrival of her new single, The Temple, marks an evolution of Luxx’s soulful country flavoured 60’s dream pop, and sees her exploring darker, more ethereal territory both lyrically and sonically. As Jessica explains, “It’s a song about breaking the rules, living a life free from the restraints we put on ourselves. It’s a call to let go and embrace the flow of the earth. To give in to softness and sensuality and rise above the chaos.”

    Her all-star band, featuring Tom Kneebone, guitar (The Audreys, Max Savage, Alana Jagt), Jamie Harrison, bass (John Schumann), Robin Bushell, violin (Pocket String Quartet, Goanna), Travis Demsey, drums (The Living End) and guest Paul Cooper, banjo (Axe & Ivory, The Cherry Pickers), rise to the occasion delivering the right balance of atmospheric and rhythmic intensity. 

    Local producer extraordinaire, Ryan Martin John (Nancy Bates, Tom West, Seabass, Alana Jagt, Max Savage), has subtly built layers within layers giving the song it’s other-worldliness, whilst maintaining Luxx’s trademark vulnerability and earthiness. The verses are sultry and mysterious and the chorus is undeniable, with all the makings of a classic alt-country anthem.

    The Temple is a journey through soulful contemplation that is bound to keep existing disciples satisfied as well as enticing new converts a plenty.

    “Take no prisoners to the Temple!”

    TODD RICHMOND BENNETT

    BENNETT & CO.

    Meet Todd Richmond Bennett (aka bennett & co.), a desert highway hipslinger who’s been slow dancing and breaking hearts since before the internet! This seasoned troubadour knows his way around a catchy hook and a good time, and is saddled-up and ready to take you on a wild ride with his goodie-bag of shambolic Americana, folk ‘n’ roll, suburban hymns and motel blues. His previous bands — Radio Dolls, Dirty York and Brother Buffalo — enjoyed popularity both locally and internationally, and now his new catalogue of solo material is attracting generous interest and ever-growing crowds to his own low-key shows closer to home. No surprises there, after all, he’s a captivating performer and a delightfully insightful songwriter with charm and musicality to burn.
