Adam Toms is set to release his long awaited third album on July 27th and its set to be a winner.
With a style combining country, rock, blues and singer/songwriter, Adam feels now the time is right to return and is eager to show people his new songs.
As a versatile live artist, Adam is as much at home performing solo acoustic as a full band show. He is known for his big voice as well as his mixed banter and sense of humour.
“I think it’s a good gig if I’ve made the audience laugh, cry and everything in between”
It’s been 5 years since Adam released his last album. A lot has gone on for the Vic based singer/songwriter in that time and his new album ‘Where Were You?’ helps fill in the blanks.
The first two previously released singles ‘Where Were You When’ and ‘Too Young To Know Better’ have had an amazing response from his loyal and new fans alike and show Adams versatility as a vocalist and songwriter, whist the forthcoming climatic power ballad ‘Say You Love Me’ leaves the listener breathless.
Adam has been focusing on his young special needs family (his two sons have Autism Spectrum Disorder) and he’s Youth Worker by day.
Adam continues to entertain audiences from a more local level where he is based in North East Victoria and is now looking forward to taking his new music further up and down the road once again.
Amber Joy Poulton has been described as “Pure Classic Country” writing songs that breathe Patsy, Dolly & Tammy with all the charm of a by-gone era to which she feels aligned.
Amber Joy has spent the last two years garnering fans from her performances in her theatre show, Coal Miner’s Daughter – A Tribute to Loretta Lynn & Friends with her astounding ability to put down the songwriting cap & take on the role of Loretta Lynn.
New Nashville recorded album “How It Used To Be” is Amber’s moodiest album yet with more than one murder-ballad showing little redemption for those who have wronged.
