FRESH FRIDAY FINDS: Daniel March releases new music, music trivia with Newcastle Live, Powderfinger reunite for one night only & more!

While we approach about 9 or so weeks of working from home, restrictions are starting to ease and the amount of great events and initiatives doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon!

Last week Newcastle’s own Daniel March released a new track called ‘Apollonia’ and Powderfinger announced they are reuniting for one very special night only to raise money for SupportAct and Beyond Blue. We have seen some great local artists live streams and if you love the song ‘Horses’, you’re in for a treat!

Check out some of our Fresh Friday Finds below.

Daniel March Releases New Track

Daniel March is a multi-instrumentalist/producer/singer-songwriter/touring guitarist who is no stranger in the Newcastle music scene as well as the independent music scene around the world.

Last week, Daniel released a brand new track called Apollonia which showcases Daniel as a writer, producer and instrumentalist – he played all of the instruments featured on the track. Apollonia is a blend of soft, soulful psychedelic rock doused in melancholy bliss and sentiment.

We have to say that the cover art is pretty awesome too!

Newcastle Live’s Live Music Trivia

We’ve been thoroughly enjoying Newcastle Live’s live music trivia every Thursday night from 8pm. The Newcastle Live quiz master will take you through three rounds of trivia that will test your music knowledge.

From A Distance Sessions Fundraiser

Josh Barnett from From A Distance Sessions is throwing the party of all parties on Sun 31 May to raise money to fund the FAD Sessions project long term. The theme? Well Josh is planning to play Horses for up to 3 hours straight!

There are donation bonuses where Josh and his friends will give you a special shoutout or you can even pick the genre of music the song is played in. We wonder how an electronic dance version of Horses would go?!

Find out more information on their Facebook page.

Thankyou for the write up @NbnnewsSee you Sunday the 31st

Kim Churchill’s Beautiful Live Videos

Guitarist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kim Churchill has been posting a series of live recorded videos on his Facebook page during iso which we’re loving! The videos are a mix of his original songs as well as covers. He posts kids songs on Thursdays, Australian Artists on Friday, Requests on Wednesdays and an ‘old school’ original on Mondays.

The added bonus of each video is that they are recorded in the most beautiful natural settings such as a forest or near the beach somewhere.

Kids song this week was an absolute joy to learn! God damn this is an incredible song 🤩 hope you enjoy.
