We continue our celebration of Ausmusic Month, showcasing seven top artists from across the country. Over a period of 20+ years Adam Gibson has forged a unique career, his blend of spoken word songs with music gaining him a deeply reverent following for his tales of love, longing and the wide open road. His words are like a time machine, taking you back to your youth, bringing laughter and tears. We feature a track from his recent album as well as his brother Simon Robert Gibson’s debut solo release. As well, legends Ups and Downs tackle some essential new wave/post punk tunes on their latest release, the brilliant new album from Caitlin Harnett and the Pony Boys and South Australian Folk Artist of the Year, Naomi Keyte in session.
