Nick has returned to songwriting after a long lay-off raising a large family. After releasing his first recording last year, he’s been writing lots of new songs and is working towards a second bout in the studio over the next few months. Songcraft with an emphasis on melodies and lyrics is at the heart of his practice, while and eclectic array of jazz, pop and country influences colour his songwriting approach.
Hailing from Byron Bay NSW the sweet acoustic sounds of Asia Hatton are not to be missed.

Little Coyote is pulsating bass lines and melodic grooves. It’s thundering drum beats and fabled stories. It’s an expression that can invoke the spirits or heal the sick. It’s all of these things and none of them simultaneously. It’s a look into the electric cool aid without having to take a drink, but we think you might be thirsty, in which case… we can only hope it’s your cup of tea. Little Coyote is your guide down the rabbit hole into tripped-out-indie-rock. Whether inspiring hope or psychosis, what’s most important is that your blood is pumping and your skin is tingling the way it does when you hear a song with that indescribable something. This wily band of coyotes includes bassist Gareth Bussey, guitarist Matt Coates, vocalist Judd English, and heavy-hitting drummer Anthony Dinh. Judd and Anto have been friends since they met in early days of high school, but it wasn’t long before Matt joined the rout and the three of them have been causing mischief ever since.
