KATIE BROOKE SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘TOO FAR DOWN’

+ ANNOUNCES FORTHCOMING SHOW DATES

 

For Katie Brooke, country music is a way of life. Raised on the twang of fiddle and guitar, she pens honest songs with a traditional bent. Today she unveils the beautifully haunting, Too Far Down’.

A menagerie of acoustic guitars builds the backbone of ‘Too Far Down’, while a lonesome fiddle glides atop – the calling cards of country’s music’s roots. The procession soon gives way to Katie’s vocal, like the parting of a sea, her seraphic tones instantly draw your ear. “I dip my toe in envy waters and I start to compare”.

Those opening lines eloquently summarise the song. Its message of staying true to oneself is embossed cleverly onto a metaphor of alluring waters. “Too Far Down is a vulnerable song,” reveals the singer-songwriter. “It speaks of comparison and the temptation to stray from your path, abandoning yourself in attempt to seek approval or personal gain.”

Like many deeply personal songs, a flurry of the pen spilled the lines onto the page. “This song was spontaneously and intuitively written without a lot of thought process behind it.” To capture the eerie beaty of the song she called on trusted collaborator, Rusty Crook, who produced the track at his Tamworth studio.

“We were really happy with this song from the demo phase and felt everything came together organically. This is the type of ethereal, dreamy song I like to work on, and Rusty’s vision always seems to match mine”

Born and bred on a cattle property, Katie has a penchant for western flair. She continues to live on the land to this day believing it’s a fundamental part of staying genuine to who she is as a country artist.

The honey voiced singer released her debut album in 2022, Sticks, Stones and Stories – 10 tracks with one foot in country’s roots and the other in the contemporary. Now she’s a 2023 Grand Finalist in the Listen Up Music Songwriting Competition.

Katie’s cut her teeth on stage with some of the best, having opened for The Black Sorrows and Shannon Noll. This New Year’s Eve she’ll appear at the Buck Wild Country Barn Sessions, before making the pilgrimage to Australian country music mecca, Tamworth in January. Her two shows at the annual festival kick off at local favourite, The Welders Dog and then on to The Press Basement Bar.

Katie Brooke is a rare breed, able to authentically blend modern country music with the sounds of its past. ‘Too Far Down’ showcases her unique sound and enchanting voice – on par with mega stars of the genre.

SHOW DATES:

December 31st Buck Wild Country Barn Sessions – Townsville, QLD

January 25th The Welders Dog – Tamworth, NSW

January 26th The Press Basement Bar – Tamworth, NSW

The Circus is in town and it is action packed

 

By Samantha Elley

Put your expectations away and open your mind to the ‘edge of your seat’ experience you will be in for when you go to see The Circus in Coffs Harbour.

“We are a seventh generation circus family, originally from Germany,” said tour manager and matriarch, Marie Weber.

“We bring acts that have never been seen under the big top in Australia before.

“These include FMX (freestyle) riders, the splitting globe of death, comedians, aerialists and even a human cannonball.”

Patriarch, Harry Weber, has been involved in the circus touring life for the past 40 years and the family are excited to be in Australia.

“We have been touring in New Zealand, South Africa, Korea and other international areas,” said Marie.

That’s no mean feat with a family of eight children who have all grown up with the circus.

“We have performers from all walks of life,” said Marie.

“There are about 40 crew and performers, including those travelling with families.”

Marie said they are all like one big happy family, especially when they have been working so closely together for so long.

“Most of us have been working together for more than 10 years,” she said.

The Circus has just wound up six shows at Lismore Showgrounds and is now heading to Coffs Harbour where they have a giveaway on their Facebook page ‘Weber Bros Entertainment’ for two VIP packages and 10 double passes to their shows.

They will be performing their action packed shows at Coffs Harbour Showground between June 6th – 16th.

Book your tickets at 0452003300 or online at iticket.com.au for two hours of great family entertainment. Prices range from $35 – $85 for adults and $25-$70 for children.

Horizon

 

There is a place between sea and sky – a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls and the light is new.

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling, some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

In Bangarra Dance Theatre’s first main stage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide the award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.

Brown is a proud descendent of the Wakaid Clan and Meriam people in the Torres Strait, with heritage from far across the seas in Scotland. She carries strength and resilience from her ancestors. Patterson was born in Turangi near Lake Taupō, and describes the sense of home as something alive, that he carries like a beating heart.

To open the program, Saibailayg (Saibai Islander) Sani Townson expands his acclaimed work Kulka, debuted in Dance Clan in 2023, to make a thrilling opening piece paying homage to Sani’s grandfather and his Torres Strait heritage.

Come explore the cultural forces that bind us together, across oceans and eons. Experience the resilience of the First Peoples of the Oceania region, that extends across the continent now known as Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and Aotearoa, our southern neighbour.

Horizon is a double bill opening with Kulka by Bangarra alum Sani Townson, followed by the primary piece, The Light Inside, choreographed by Bangarra alum Deborah Brown and Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When – 8-17 of August
  • Where – QPAC
  • Price – from $59
  • TicketsAvailable here.
