2018 Artist Focus: The Deadbeats are the latest Auckland supergroup with members from The Remarkables, Flaming Mudcats, and Glenn Ross Campbell (who's played with Joe Cocker among many others). They bring you acoustic blues with an edge. Blues songs from the 20s through 60s in their hands will soon have you smiling, swinging and swaying.
2018 Artist Focus: Reverie released their debut album earlier in 2017. Victoria Vigenser and Tony Hillyard share a love of lyrical music from contemporary to traditional folk songs. As Reverie they explore what resounds in the head, heart and soul of the folk roots movement.
