Gretta Ziller is an alt-country singer-songwriter from Melbourne that I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about recently. Gretta Ziller released her latest EP Hell’s Half Acre in August last year which generated quite a bit of buzz – and she’s just unveiled the playful new video for “Some Kind of Habit” from that same EP.

I really like this track. There’s a real pop sensibility to it without tarnishing it’s alt-country roots. Check out the video below – and see if you can spot any alt-country scene cameos:

Watch the New Mark Knopfler Video “Beryl”

I think at this stage in Mark Knopfler’s solo career it’s safe to refer to him as a folk-rock singer-songwriter. Since “going solo” with 1996’s Golden Heart Knopfler has worn his folk, Celtic and country influences very much on his sleeve.

This week Mark Knopfler is set to release his brand new solo album Tracker and he’s also released his first single and video “Beryl”, a tribute to Booker Prize winning author Dame Beryl Bainbridge. Check out the video below:

Watch the New Sam Lee & Friends Video “Blackbird”
