Fusion Boutique Presents
THE WEEPING WILLOWS ‘You Reap What You Sow’ Album Launch Tour
+ SMITH & JONES
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 30th July 2022
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 15 Katoomba St, Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.
– NEW ENTRY VIA THE CARRINGTON HOTEL DRIVEWAY –

2022 & 2021 CMAA ‘Golden Guitar’, Australian Folk Music and Music Victoria Award winners, The Weeping Willows (Laura Coates and Andrew Wrigglesworth) are a couple of old souls, steeped in Bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, God and The Devil, murder and decay. That kind of description might make them sound like some carefully contrived concept-act but there’s something truly different about The Weeping Willows: they really mean it…

2017-2021 saw The Weeping Willows nominated for 10 x CMAA ‘Golden Guitar’ awards, 4 x Country Music Channel (CMC) awards, 2 x Australian Folk Music Awards (AFMAs), Live Act of the Year (Country) in the National Live Music Awards (NLMAs), performing at AmericanaFest (USA), Folk Alliance International (USA), Maverick Festival (UK), Port Fairy Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Out On The Weekend and the Australian Americana Music Honours.
In recent years they have supported Lukas Nelson & POTR (USA), Hayes Carll (USA), Iris DeMent (USA), Eilen Jewell (USA) and Willie Watson (USA) and completed national and international tours in support of their sophomore album, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’, which received four-star reviews in Rolling Stone, The Australian and The Music.
A Weeping Willows performance, whether live on location or caught on tape will always delight.

Smith & Jones, a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones, have never been ones to follow the pack. Though classified as alt-country, their goal has never been to remain within the confines of any genre, preferring to let their sound and their songs take them where they will. Since their very first meeting in 2014, Smith & Jones have toured extensively with their two albums Dark Gives Way (2017) and Something Worth Learning (2019) in tow, but always with their live shows at the heart of their partnership.
2022 will see Smith & Jones release new recorded work which looks set to further their reputation as a duo worthy of their high regard as both a live act, and their sensitivity and skill as songwriters and recording artists.
‘Waiting on my Turn’ their newest single is set to be released in March.

FUSION BOUTIQUE presents JODI PHILLIS & BAND Album Launch Tour + KING CURLY in Concert at Baroque Room, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents
JODI PHILLIS (The Clouds) ‘We Need To Be Free’ Album Launch Tour
+ KING CURLY
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

SATURDAY 13th August 2022
Doors Open 7pm | Show Start 8pm

Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 15 Katoomba St, Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.
– Entry via the Carrington Hotel Driveway –

Legendary singer-songwriter, composer and artist Jodi Phillis (The Clouds, Dearhunters, Roger Loves Betty) is releasing her 6th solo album, ‘We Need To Be Free’ in June 2022 through Melbourne based Cheersquad Records.

To celebrate its release, Jodi is touring the Eastern states of Australia with her talented band – featuring guitarist, composer Damien Lane, Matt Steffen and Phil Lally, to perform her uniquely haunting, country-tinged, chamber folk-pop songs that are sure to evoke tears and ecstasy.

Sharing the bill with Jodi and her band on the night are King Curly in full band mode featuring Blue Mountains local Steve Appel, a long-time enigma of original Australian music with his songs that bring to life avenging zombies, ukulele bumblebees, possessed pianos and a certain air of quiet, small town romance, against an impossibly beautiful backdrop of chook-shed instrumentation. The band also features Steve Grieve on guitars and Johnny Graffham on pedal steel.

This is a special night of masterful music not to be missed, from two of Australia’s most unique singer songwriters.

THE PIGS at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, SAT 4th Feb 2017

The Pigs Spring / Summer Tour at Hotel Gearin

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

As seen on Spicks and Specks and Australia’s Got Talent! The Pigs are comin’ back to the Mountains. With some Mount’n music!

Unashamed bluegrass sinners, The Pigs have been spreading their supercharged hillbilly pop around Australia and the world for over 12 years. Their ability to turn hit pop songs into downright foot-stompers is legendary and their kooky original anthems like ‘Macho Moisturiser’ and ‘Hey Christina’ are sung from Berlin to Bendigo.

Following three celebrated albums, international tours, Golden Guitar nominations and a trip to the dentist, 2015 saw the release of their iconic Aussie album, ‘The Pigs Home Brew’ and the crazy national tour that ensued, including major festivals, regional theatres and TV appearances – even singing “Ita” to Ita Buttrose (she loved their shiny teeth)!

T-Bone, Stretch, Cousin Shamus, Cousin Montz and Cousin Bert will perform crowd-favourite tunes from 12 Years on the road. With double bass, acoustic guitars, mandolin, stand up drums, banjo and big bluegrass vocal harmonies, The Pigs’ barefoot-genre-bending-energy appeals to just about anybody with a pulse!

The band is known for its dynamic and entertaining live performances guaranteed to get your feet stomping and your faces smiling.

They will be playing a huge two full length sets from 9pm.

JETTY ROAD ‘Hearts On Fire’ Album Launch Tour at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sat 30th May 2015

JETTY ROAD ‘Hearts On Fire’ Album Launch Tour at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains
+ Special Guest – Tara Favell

Sat 30th May 2015
HOTEL GEARIN
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN
273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba
Blue Mountains NSW 2780.

Country music stars ‘Jetty Road’ are back with a new story to tell. The band has returned with an album full of musical diversity. Aptly named Hearts On Fire, the album represents an evolution for the band and their distinctive sound!

Travelling half way across the globe to Canada to record again with producer Paul Shatto (Far Away Places) at the helm, the new album is a reflection of the emotional journey over the past few years.

“There are songs that speak of love, joy, betrayal, heartbreak, hope and everything in between, a little bit like riding a rollercoaster. Whether that’s in a lyric, a melody or simply the way a song makes you feel.” Lee Bowman – Guitar and Vocals.

January 2015 marked their 10-year anniversary together, a milestone rarely seen within music circles today. It’s easy to see the progression from their humble beginnings at Australia’s Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2005 to where they are today.

The past years have been an extraordinary journey for the band. Winning their second Golden Guitar (CMAA) Award for Best Group or Duo in 2012 at the 40th Country Music Awards of Australia has established twin sisters Lee & Paula Bowman, and Julian Sammut, as some of Australia’s hottest and brightest stars.

The release of their fourth album ‘Far Away Places’ in May 2011 saw the band garner some serious attention from both fans and critics alike with the album spending an amazing 41 weeks on the ARIA Australian Country Album Chart.

The band have had many Top 30 hits on Australian country radio and the Country Music Channel, but more impressively they’ve hit the coveted No.1 position no less than four times on country radio (I’m A Dreamer #1 x 7 weeks / Million Miles #1 x 6 weeks / Serves You Right #1 x 4 weeks / Sweet Goodbye #1 x 3 weeks) and six times on Country Music Channel (City Lights, Million Miles, World Keeps Turning, Serves You Right, I’m A Dreamer and Sweet Goodbye).

Along with strong chart success, Jetty Road have won many awards including two CMAA Awards (Golden Guitar) at the 38th and 40th CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia for Best Group / Duo. They have also been honoured with Album of the Year and Single of the Year nominations. Their other key country music accolades also include Australian Independent Artist of the Year, Australian Independent Album of the Year, Australian Independent Group/Duo of the Year, numerous Australian Country Music People’s Choice Awards, the National Music Oz Award for Best Country Act and the major Professional Development Award ($20,000) AIADA Award in recognition of excellence in Australian Independent Country Music. Earning themselves a 2012 APRA Music Award nomination for Country Work of the Year is further testament of their achievements in the Australian music industry. More recently their song I’m A Dreamer achieved finalist status in the International Song Competition (Country Section), receiving an ‘Honourable Mention’.

Hearts On Fire is released in May 2015 and Melbourne act Jetty Road will be touring from May through to December 2015.

Earnest and honest, singer-songwriter Tara Favell is bringing her country-pop cross over style to the Australian musical landscape, writing songs from the heart and delivering them with passion to her ever-growing fan base. A musical child by nature, Favell was always singing and acting on stage and by age 13, she had mastered the piano, trumpet and guitar.

Drawing musical inspiration from a variety of sources, British band McFly provided the most impact in Tara’s musical education. “As soon as I heard their music I instantly wanted to learn guitar and as soon as I picked up the guitar, I wouldn’t put it down.” Once she had a handle on the guitar, this was the beginning of Tara as a songwriter.

Her debut single ‘Anything For You’ was released in 2011 and gained airplay on a national level. The accompanying music video was picked up by Channel 10’s Landed Music program. ‘Anything For You’ enabled Tara to forge a strong connection with her audience through the honest and personal content of her songs. Tara’s second single ‘The Chase’ received national airplay on 2day FM & local radio stations around the country.

As a songwriter, Tara finds her inspiration from her life, writing a lot on the topics of love. Love being such a complicated subject and every relationship, crush and breakup starting and ending so differently, this provides her with what she deems as endless amounts of experience to write about. “Being 100% honest in a song could never be a bad thing.” This shines through in her songs, allowing people to relate to her music in their own ways.
Tara’s unforgettable live performance enabled her to secure a solid touring itinerary. This year alone she has performed at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, Camden Country Spectacular Show where she shared the stage and opened for Luke O’Shea, Kate Cook, Kaylee Bell & Jared Porter, Light The Night event for the Leukemia Foundation at Bondi Beach, Westpoint Shopping Centre and much more.
Recently Tara was picked up by Ryan Seacrest Online in America and her cover of ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift was chosen in the top 8 of Ryan’s favorite covers on the whole of YouTube and gained worldwide exposure on his website. Tara’s YouTube Channel has recently hit over 800,000 views and her following on social media is growing by thousands.
Excited to share her music with the world, Tara hopes to provide inspiration and enjoyment to other musicians, music lovers and fans.
