THE NEW GRACES

“Songs that feel like a walk along a dusty country road – evocative, warm, connected with the land and its people…”  

Melanie Horsnell, Kate Burke and Robyn Martin are all seasoned identities in the Australian music scene. Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, their music is flavoured with guitar, double bass, mandolin, fiddle, banjo and three part harmonies plus a little desert heat-haze that could only be Australian.  

Between them, they weave tales of farmers, mothers, sea farers, history, lovers, the ordinary, and the mysterious. Their songs tell stories of their Australia:  desert country steeped in history, wild bush dances, snowy mountains and remote swimming holes, generations of family life on the land, waking up in a sunny Sydney bedroom, returning to favourite old pub to play music with friends.

    Hi to the New Graces I am a new fan after seeing two of your shows at the most recent Woodford Folk Festival. Your harmonies were gorgeous and I thought your individual singing styles blended beautifully; the clarity and purity of your sound really touched something in me. Thank you so much for your honest lyrics and your aura of friendship- your gigs felt like a group of mates getting together for a catch up and a sing along. I’m greatly looking forward to your album release this year
