Japanese-Australian singer-songwriter Yuko Nishiyama has just released her debut video “Heart Of Daisies”. Shot in regional Australia, the video for “Heart of Daisies” perfectly compliments this stunning track. We have a feeling Yuko Nishiyama will be a name to watch this year.
Check out the video below – and keep an eye out for another Timber and Steel favourite making a cameo in the clip:

British folk singer-songwriter Blair Dunlop has a brand new album, House of Jacks, due on the 26th June and has just released the video for the first single “Something’s Gonna Give Way”. Dunlop won a bunch of Australian fans when he was in the country last month and we reckon his new album will win him even more, especially if “Something’s Gonna Give Way” is anything to go on.
