Absolutely honoured to have two TOP 30 songs in this year's competition, and for Watlng to be nominated for the Rudy Brandsma Award. Looking forward to the Awards dinner in Sydney on Wed 30 October! Check out all the excitement at the ASA website.
Watling & Bates are songwriters from Unumgar, on the western edge of the Northern Rivers of NSW. Fiddle, banjo, and guitar provide a backdrop for their tales, which recount local history, simple joys, or the complexities of a troubled mind. Their songs move like a will-o-the-wisp between Australiana and Americana, Gothic country and dark folk, hillbilly and honkytonk.
