I’ve never been great at containing my excitement for an artist I really admire, I guess it’s why I got into this business in the first place. I first saw Sienna at Drone once upon a time and I don’t think I’ve felt moved so significantly about an artist since. Writing raw originals, executing incredible covers, my heart usually ends up exploding like a broken kaleidoscope by the end of each and every track.[/cs_text][x_button size=”regular” block=”false” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”https://www.facebook.com/SiennaLaceMusic/” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_icon type=”facebook-official” class=”mvn mln mrs”]Find On Facebook[/x_button][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text]Error, group does not exist!

Before I heard Adam play, music for me was all about the words that preceded the sound, but after hearing Adam play at the Underground one unsuspecting evening everything changed. Adam is a world class guitarist, and I do not throw that statement around lightly. In fact, I’m actually not going to use any more words on the subject, for those who have seen him live, you already know. Catch him playing a gig when he’s (finally) back in the country.[/cs_text][x_button size=”regular” block=”false” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”https://www.facebook.com/adammillermusic/” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_icon type=”facebook-official” class=”mvn mln mrs”]Find On Facebook[/x_button][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_gap size=”50px”][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 95%)” parallax=”false” separator_top_type=”none” separator_top_height=”50px” separator_top_angle_point=”50″ separator_bottom_type=”none” separator_bottom_height=”50px” separator_bottom_angle_point=”50″ style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”true” style=”margin-top:0px;”]William John Junior[/x_custom_headline][x_gap size=”2%”][x_image type=”none” src=”https://newcastlelive.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/19055467_1578225892221560_2067392581960130806_o.jpg” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=”” style=”width:100%;margin-bottom:0px;”][x_audio_embed][/x_audio_embed][cs_text]If you’ve never heard of him, rectify this immediately.

On the surface the instrumentation and at times Helena’s delivery is somewhat whimsical, but it’s when you dive a little deeper into the release that you’re smacked in the face with the intricacies of her vocal phrasing and layered call and response of the band.

While it’s no secret that I LOVE everything that Helena is a part of, I truly believe this is one of the greatest local releases of the year, and you should get on board.
