Sue Ray has just returned from Nashville where she was writing for her next album and is thrilled to be performing her first show with her favorite Australian band The Kill Devil Hills as part of their Past and Future Ghosts Tour. Brisbane band Shifting Sands will also be joining the line-up for what is set to be a huge night. Tickets are selling fast so you can pre-purchase yours here at: http://tickets.oztix.com.au/default.aspx?Event=38291   About the Kill Devil Hills: Ten years after first banging out tunes around Perth in 2003, the Kill Devil Hills are set to release their first live album, Past and Future Ghosts, recorded on a balmy March night earlier this year at a n old Gothic ex-asylum/now-arts centre in Fremantle, WA. Comprising live versions of songs from the band’s 3 studio albums and other single releases, as well as 2 previously unreleased tracks, this reveals the full feverish range and breadth of the band on stage, thunder through to tender. About to step into the studio to record a new album, the band will be doing a breakneck run of 5 cities in early November to launch the live album release. This will be available on CD at shows, and digitally via Bandcamp.   Links to fan sites The Kill Devil Hills https://www.facebook.com/thekilldevilhills Shifting Sands https://www.facebook.com/theshiftingsands...

It is the most visited town in the Blue Mountains and the world famous Three Sisters and the other panoramas and bushwalks are amongst Australia’s most popular tourist attractions. A little to the west are the magnificent Jenolan Caves. Katoomba became known as a town in 1879 with the opening of a coal mine. The railway station was originally named The Crushers for its mining activity. Coal and shale mining went on into the early twentieth century, but it was city folk coming up to take the air and dance the night away in the many guesthouses that kept the place on the map after that.

Sue Ray performs with new rising star Benny Walker at The Old Museum

Posted by on Feb 10, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

So I’m thrilled to say that I will be performing with new rising talent Benny Walker at The Old Museum on Sunday February 17th at 8pm. Benny Walker’s sophomore album ‘Sinners and Saints’ is an effortless blend of blues, roots and acoustic folk. Walker’s intimate, eloquent song-writing is complemented by a rich, soulful voice which speaks of the trouble, strife and wonder of everyday life. It is this voice that recently earned him the Victorian Indigenous Performing Arts Award for Best New Talent 2012, the Arts Cultural Australia Day Murray Shire Council Award and a 2011 Deadly Award nomination for Most Promising New Talent in Music. Recorded at Yikesville with ARIA award winning producer Shane O’Mara (Tim Rogers, Lisa Miller, The Audreys), ‘Sinners and Saints’ is a 14 track long-player set for release on February 15. Don’t miss the chance to see what all the fuss is about, as Benny Walker tours the release of his new album ‘Sinners and Saints’ through 2013.
