5 SHOWS TO GO

Pete Murray's Australian Heartbeats Tour is almost over. It's been a pleasure performing around Oz and meeting everyone over the last few months.  

Here's a few of snaps by my good friend Trent Mitchell who joined us on the road for a week. Can you guess where this epic desert scene is? Check my gallery for more. Thanks so much Trent, you're an absolute legend and I really appreciate your work!

LISTEN TO 'NEW TIDE' NOW

NEW TIDE album - Out today

So happy to share this collection of songs with the world and let them out of my grasp!  It's been a long time in the making from composing each song, to testing them out at gigs, making demos, recording alternate versions, and doing a whole bunch of other things at once or inbetween.

Today I'm very proud of how they all sound together on 'New Tide' and also my journey towards release, I've learnt so much!  I hope you enjoy the listen.  

Thank you to the legendary team who helped capture and bring the magic. I'm so grateful for your talents and support.

Interview with Vonu Beer

CATCHING UP WITH VONU MUSICIAN MATT ARMITAGE

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT MATTHEW ARMITAGE IS AN ACCOMPLISHED MUSICIAN.  SINCE RELOCATING FROM NEW ZEALAND TO BYRON BAY IN 2013, ARMITAGE HAS BEEN MAKING HIS MARK AS A SOLO BLUESMAN AMONGST BYRON’S THRIVING MUSIC SCENE. A MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST, SINGER AND SONGWRITER, ARMITAGE HAS THE ABILITY TO CAPTIVATE HIS AUDIENCE AT AN INTIMATE LEVEL OR SET A HUGE VENUE ALIGHT FOR A PARTY LIKE NO OTHER.  HIS TALENTS HAVE SEEN HIM PLAY IN HUNDREDS OF SHOWS IN AUSTRALIA AND TRAVEL ACROSS THE WORLD PLAYING GIGS IN MUSIC HUBS SUCH AS NEW YORK AND BERLIN. EARLIER THIS YEAR VONU ASKED ARMITAGE IF HE WOULD BE WILLING TO PUT FORWARD AN ORIGINAL SONG FOR ANDY GOUGH’S SHORT FILM ‘MOONTIDE.’ ARMITAGE ACCEPTED OUR REQUEST AND THE END RESULT WAS SPECTACULAR. ON THE CUSP OF RELEASING HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM TITLED ‘NEW TIDE’ VONU CAUGHT UP WITH ARMITAGE TO HAVE A QUICK CHAT ABOUT HIS MUSIC.
