Bio

Simon Starr released WideMusic (vitamin.net.au) in March 08, and has since been steadily gigging and promoting his mix of rootsy pop and old fashioned song writing. His self titled double album came out in August '09, and has floored the critics and punters alike.
Some of the best players in the Australian roots scene got together to put their talents towards making amazing songs up, and in the best traditions of the Beatles, Little Feat, The Rolling Stones, Crowded House, Big Star and Bruce Springsteen, they somehow put amazingly catchy tunes around sophisticated lyrics that gives them a deep demographic reach.
