Brooke Russell and the Mean Reds says
Four of the country’s finest Australiana acts are set to gather at the Bassendean Hotel on Friday March 3rd for a night of Sad Songs and Waltzes. Local troubadour Davey Craddock will be joined by Melbourne’s Small Town Romance, James Kenyon and Perth ex-pats Brooke Russell and The Mean Reds to kick off the long weekend with alt-country goodness.

Davey Craddock

“Craddock’s uniquely Australian power of observation and gift of storytelling is matched by an uncanny knack for creating classic hooks”
The Australian - Four Stars

“City West is a world class introduction to one of this country’s finest singer-songwriters”
The Music - Four Stars

Brooke Russell and The Mean Reds

“Brooke Russell and the Mean Reds’ country-inflected take on timeless pop that you’ll dig if you like Caitlin Rose.” - Nashville Scene

“She’d be at home in the Nighthawks diner, except that she’s maybe not jaded enough. There’s an innocence and hope to most of her songs that feels like a balm.” - McKinley Valentine,

Small Town Romance

"One of the records of the year" – Michael Park, The International Americana Show, Best of 2016.

"I need to get over my prejudice that only Americans can make good country music. It couldn’t be farther from the truth as evidenced by Small Town Romance." Harry Kaplan,

James Kenyon

“James Kenyon's style is comparable to the quieter side of Ryan Adams mixed with a hint of Bon Iver and a dash of The Felice Brothers with their rougher edges polished.” - Chris Familton, The Music

“Exploring the creative potential of soundscape in songwriting, he places the listener in the landscapes he depicts with sensitive artistry. A meditative, authentic journey that is genuinely in tune with its subject.” Jessie Cunniffe, Sydney Morning Herald
