To celebrate the release of their hotly anticipated debut album When We Fall, All Our Exes Live in Texas are hitting the road for a national tour. The Exes is a fantasy draft of Sydney’s finest singer-songwriters – Elana Stone, Katie Wighton, Hannah Crofts and Georgia Mooney – here combining in four-part, indie-folk harmony heaven. Having blitzed all corners of the globe from Ireland to the USA, earning accolades from the likes of NPR, Perez Hilton and CNN, racking up multiple nominations for the National Live Music Awards and being shortlisted for the Vanda & Young songwriting competition, not to mention sharing stages with the likes of Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Boy & Bear, Passenger and the Backstreet Boys (!!), as well as garnering parliamentary attention in Question Time as one of the country’s brightest acts, All Our Exes Live in Texas are thrilled to launch their album into the world.

On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, the Exes deliver tunes that are tastefully crafted within the context of a playful and utterly charming live show.
With four songwriters and four unique voices, the Exes make music that draws from the traditional, creating a new brand of modern folk. Fair warning: You’ll need your charisma sunnies or you’ll walk away a little bit in love.
The Exes are a powerhouse of vocals, charm and song writing prowess.

“Seriously, it’ll make you believe again. Don’t ever miss this band”The Music

“catch them before they’re famous and only perform for royalty and astronauts” – The Brag

‘All Our Exes Live in Texas have been touring over the past couple of years selling out venues all over Australia – its hard to feel sorry for someone singing a sad song when their talent is completely blocking any feelings of pity you could ever feel – they are the most badass girl folk group ever’Hhhhappy.com

“Sweet and charming, All Our Exes Live in Texas were a festival highlight. Soaring vocal harmonies, tight melodies, an accordion and a set peppered by the girls’ random audience banter left the audience in total adoration, with a standing ovation given to them – and rightly so” – The Music

“All Our Exes Live In Texas filled the Howler bar with incredible harmonies and a folky vibe. They clearly enjoy performing, and their talent combined with their relaxed and funny banter caused the audience to instantly fall in love with them. Their accordion and mandolin accompaniment in tandem with ukulele and classical guitar adds a unique dimension to their music, ensuring everyone who sees them play won’t be able to forget them. These guys certainly make a big impression” – The AU review

MICK THOMAS & THE ROVING COMMISSION ‘These Are The Days’ Blue Mountains Album & Book Launch Tour at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SUN 4th June 2017

MICK THOMAS & THE ROVING COMMISSION
‘These Are The Days’ Blue Mountains Album & Book Launch Tour at Hotel Gearin
+ Special Guest Ayleen O’Hanlon

Sun 4th June 2017
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN, 273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW 2780.

Raconteur, troubadour, balladeer and poet, Mick Thomas is best known as the song master of pub-rock icons Weddings Parties Anything.
His band The Roving Commission features Squeezebox Wally on Piano Accordion and a rotating schedule of talented performers to keep the party alive with Mick’s unique mix of folk, roots and country.


We are extremely pleased to host the launch of Mick Thomas’ new album “These Are The Songs”, a companion album to his new book “These Are the Days” at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba as part of his tour.

“These Are The Days” is the autobiographical tale of an inspired and uniquely Australian creative force. It all starts with the songs: how they got written, where and why they got written, and why they still get played. And its about the people – in the various line ups of the various bands, the people in the studio, and in the audience at the countless shows. And its about when Weddings Parties Anything first called it a day back in 1998 and Mick quickly realising there was no good night to go into. The book follows the history of 31 songs, each including stories and a song chart.

The companion album tracks each of the songs in the book and is a compilation of Mick Thomas’ finest work from 1998 to 2016. The album also includes four previously unreleased bonus tracks including a cover of Rick Nelson’s ‘Garden Party’ and a duet with Ruby Boots on Dylan’s latter-day classic ‘Most of The Time’.

Mick’s ever-evolving talents as a writer and performer defines a career as intriguing as it is enduring. His knockabout image partly explains his close relationship with his audience. They see him as one of them. A loyal mob who have followed him from the Weddo’s through his solo career, Mick’s fans relate to his wistful, sentimental and nostalgic lyrics. Themes such as Australian history (‘Dancing Man’, ‘Gallipoli Rosemary’); fleeting or lost love (‘For a Short Time’, ‘Disrepair’); the bittersweet realities of life’s merry-go-round (‘Away, Away’, ‘Ticket in Tatts’); alienation (‘The Lonely Goth’); and football (‘Tom Wills’, ‘Monday’s Experts’); are wrapped in a positive, triumph over adversity message. The characters in Mick’s songs are everyday battlers, as are he and his fans.

“These Are The Songs” and “These Are the Days” are out in March 2017.

+ Special Guest Ayleen O’Hanlon
Perhaps it’s the Irish blood, the rural upbringing, or the folk records in her parents’ collection. Whatever the secret ingredient, it’s clear that Ayleen O’Hanlon has a knack for honest storytelling coupled with a unique ability to captivate any audience. Her song writing evokes wide screen imagery.
O’Hanlon emerged in 2015 with the album ‘Blend and Spill’ displaying a confidence and candour rarely seen on an alt-folk country debut. Since then she has wowed audiences around Australia on several tours, appearing at a number of festivals including Port Fairy Folk Festival and Brunswick Music Festival, and has curated a major song writing and history event, ‘Going Back’ for the Darebin Music Feast.
Backed by skilled picking on guitar and banjo, her distinctive voice and charisma will carry a song to any listener’s heart with vigour and authenticity.
