"Where all in this together" is the catch phrase for the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic. And while we are certainly all in this together - the challenge has been how musicians and music workers will keep things moving while under strict isolation rules.
"Nervous Girls" has been recorded 100% remotely with artists, musicians, producer and mixer spread across three countries. It showcases five of the best female voices in Australian Country Music - Bec Lavelle, Kora Naughton, Jem Cassar-Daley, Kaitlyn Thomas and Ingrid Mae. All women are unique but all can personally relate to the story of the song.
Bec is no stranger to global audiences via her success as the key singer in the television drama, McLeod's Daughters, which is currently going through a resurgence in popularity thanks to global streaming. The show was recently named by BuzzFeed Germany as the Greatest TV Show of All Time.
Kora has been going from strength to strength in the last 3 years with supports for James Blundell, Mick Thomas (of Weddings Parties Anything) and Catherine Britt. Her last release, "Speechless", clocked up over fifty thousand plays on Spotify.
Jem is currently making a name for herself as a singer/songwriter following national touring in 2019 and a successful Tamworth Festival campaign in January. She is the daughter of country legend, Troy Cassar-Daley and radio& TV personality Laurel Edwards.
Kaitlyn Thomas has recently been setting the airwaves on fire with her hit, "First Kiss". She also had a big Tamworth Festival and is currently working on new material for release later this year.
Ingrid Mae rounds out this stellar line up of talent. Ingrid's vocal and overall style is somewhere in a world where Dolly Parton meets Melissa Etheridge.
Little Big Town's Hubert Payne provides drums and percussion, Brett Eldredge's touring guitarist, Greg Carrillo, contributed guitars and bass while New York musician, Pier Luigi Salami - known for his work with pop artists Chris Brown and Tyga - rounds out the musicians on piano.
