A.P D’Antonio, South Australia’s finalist on the voice 2018 works within the boundaries of the old folk masters to deliver an authentic take on 1920’s-1940’s country, folk and blues.
Packing along a banjo and guitar, A.P sings songs of rambling, brawling, gambling, up’s and down’s, love had and lost and some traditional favourites. His freewheeling, raw style has won over crowds across the country and he has become a favourite at festivals and venues alike.
Barossa Valley singer/songwriter Michaela Jenke isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of music categorisation. Her style entwines country rock, alternative country and Americana, which has stemmed from influences by the likes of Hank Williams, Gillian Welch and Oasis.
At the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival, Michaela was named the winner of the Coca-Cola Battle of The New Stars competition, which included a spot to play at the closing concert of the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival.
June 2017 saw Michaela release her highly anticipated debut EP, Diamonds Outta Dirt, which was recorded and produced by Bill Chambers at his studio on the NSW Central Coast. The five songs on the release are written by Michaela, one of those being a co-write with one of Australian country music’s most acclaimed songwriters, Allan Caswell.
As well as being a graduate of the 2017 CMAA Senior Academy of Country Music, Michaela has since performed with and supported some of Australia’s biggest names in country music including Amber Lawrence, Bill Chambers, Aleyce Simmonds and Brad Butcher.
Always performing alongside her is Adelaide’s premier country guitarist Reid Sampson, whose blistering handiwork is the perfect accompaniment to Michaela’s dulcet tones.
Michaela is currently writing for her debut album to be released in 2020!
