Rouseabout Records has recently released Gary Shearston’s latest studio effort 'The Best Of All Trades'. It is a double album featuring 24 of the finest songs Gary has written.
Simply Australia’s Jim Low declares "the songs that make up this 2CD set are, as the title song says, definitely “sung from the heart”. We live in uncertain times and these are songs of our time. They are honest responses to the world we live in and share. Let’s hope that songwriters like Gary Shearston continue this most valuable trade". The good news is he certainly intends doing just that. Check out the full review at here.
Look and listen out for Gary Shearston in the Sydney Morning Herald, Tenterfield Star, Blarney Bulletin and on John Nutting’s ‘Saturday Night Country’ & Ian McNamara’s ‘Australia All Over’ (ABC Local Radio) plus community radio nationwide through the efforts of our good friends at Amrap.
Gary Shearston is also to be featured on SBS TV’s ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ in the second half of 2009.
Listen to this month’s edition of UCM Radio to hear songs from the 2CD release.
Mic Conway's National Junk Band
The band and Mic have some great shows coming up after their stormingly muddy exploits in Byron Bay at BluesFest, and Mic's subsequent tour in warm gentle W.A. with the lovely trio "Clarke's Gray Vest". The Junk Band shook the stage at BluesFest with cringe jokes, fractured blues, and a very popular alternative to rootsy jams.
There's a new restaurant music venue opening in Sydney called "Notes". The Junk Band will be playing there in July.
Songs from Corporate Chook are still enjoying airplay on community radio nationwide especially through the good folk at 3WAY in Warnambool.

Eric’s new and possibly last studio album The Dreamer is making it’s way to media around the country and is being received to rave reviews with Sun Herald Sun’s Bob Crimeen lauding Bogle as ‘Australia’s premier poet of song’.
One can hardly argue as Eric returns to his best form on the new album which is available at retail through MGM Distribution as well as Folk Trax, Trad & Now and directly from Undercover Music via mail order.
Rouseabout is also extremely excited about the impending release of Eric’s first ever DVD Live at Stonyfell Winery that is available in late July. It’s your only chance to catch the great man live until October as he and long time companion/producer John Munro are on their last international tour encompassing the UK and North America.
In the meantime the best of Bogle’s classic back catalogue Singing The Spirit Home has just been released online.
