Sam Buckingham releases brand new album The Water. And it is just lovely.

We profiled singer/songwriter Sam Buckingham back in February when she released her single The Water. Well, her full length album is finally here, and it's just beautiful! Sam performs a duet with Timothy James Bowen, (whose music you must listen to. He is the brother of US TV show Nashville star Clare Bowen, and an absolute pleasure to watch live and also to listen to in your loungeroom - check him out!), and how she wrote a very special track called Jolene which is in response to the very famous Dolly Parton song. Sam is about to head out on tour, and caught us up on how she is feeling about the new release.

Meet Angharad Drake: A beautiful dulcimer playing folk artist who gets her RM Williams boots wet

Angharad Drake has been making music since high school. The Sunshine Coast based singer, songwriter and producer has five recordings under her belt. And she is only 24.
