Friday Folk Flashback

“Rattle & Your Roll” – Fanny Lumsden & The Thrillseekers

Today our dear friend Fanny Lumsden releases her amazing debut album Small Town Big Shot. We’ve been following Fanny’s career since she reached out to Timber and Steel 4 years ago to present her first single launch in Sydney. We’re so proud of everything Fanny Lumsden and the boys have achieved over the years and are looking forward to celebrating her success for years to come.

Listen to the New Hannah Blackburn Single “Beach House”

Hannah Blackburn is a Canberra born, Melbourne based singer-songwriter. She recently released her new single “Beach House”, which we think is delicate, raw and beautiful. The track is about coming to terms with the fact that it’s perfectly okay to not feel okay.

“It occurred to me while mindlessly singing a melody to some chords that I’m actually allowed to express sadness and feeling hurt, and admitting those thoughts out loud can change the way you feel, and help to cope,” Hannah Blackburn explained.

Take a listen to “Beach House” below:
