Candy Moon, released on Valentine's Day 2021, is available for streaming, download, and home delivery as a CD single! Producer and guitarist Thor Phillips and drummer Marcus Schintler have bought some hillbilly swing and rockabilly jazz to this old time classic. Candy Moon was written by Kym Watling, engineered by Thor Phillips, and mastered by Paul Blakey at 12th & Vine Post.
Watling & Bates are songwriters from Unumgar NSW, raconteurs of contemporary rural Australia and revivalists of the country’s past. Their songs move like a will-o-the-wisp between Australiana and Americana, Gothic country and dark folk, hillbilly and honkytonk.

New Single with the Shelly Jones Band
The Shelly Jones Band’s upbeat traditional country sound merges with Watling & Bates’ old time Gothic hillbilly and honkytonk style on this latest single from these two accomplished country duos.
Written by Shelly Jones, IF YOU KNEW WHAT YOU KNOW is an upbeat tune that challenges one to think about whether they would do things differently in life if they had their chance to do it all again.
With an infectious beat and a catchy tune packed with perfectly blended harmonies and great musicianship, you’ll want you to kick up your heels and start dancing, even if you don’t know how!
Produced by Lester and Shelly in their home studio, IF YOU KNEW WHAT YOU KNOW is available on all digital platforms.
