"'Travelin’ Man' s the familiar tale of a man whose heart belongs to the open road and the woman he is destined to leave behind, no matter how much they love each other..." - Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine.

The Weeping Willows, Laura Coates and Andrew Wrigglesworth, are a couple of old souls, steeped in Bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, God and The Devil, murder and decay. That kind of description might make them sound like some carefully contrived concept-act but there’s something truly different about The Weeping Willows: they really mean it…

2015-2016 saw The Weeping Willows nominated for 4 x CMAA ‘Golden Guitar’ awards, Country Music Channel (CMC) New Oz Artist Of The Year, supporting Iris DeMent (USA), Kinky Friedman (USA), Hayes Carll (USA), Eilen Jewell (USA), Shane Nicholson, Bill Chambers and Lachlan Bryan and completing a national tour in support of their sophomore album, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’, which received four star reviews in Rolling Stone, The Australian and The Music. A Weeping Willows performance, whether live on location or caught on tape will always delight.

City girl with a country sound, Arna Georgia is a country singer/songwriter born and raised in Sans Souci, in the city of Sydney. Throughout the last 10 years, she has sung, danced and acted her way though a certificate IV in performance at The Village Performing Arts Centre, a Bachelor of Music at the Australian Institute of Music and more recently graduating from the CMAA Academy of Country Music in 2016 in which she was mentored by a number of Australian Country Music greats.

Arna Georgia is mainly influenced by traditional country music. The Carter Family, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash take up a lot of her record collection. She hopes for her debut EP to embody all of these influences to create a unique sound that is truly her own. The EP includes a number of individually written songs as well as cowrites with Michael Carpenter, Bill Chambers and Catherine Britt.
