Originally from New Zealand and currently based in Alice Springs (Australia) Lachlan Grant Splendor is a folk-rock musician.
Lachlan Grant Splendor
Armed with a guitar, an absorbing vocal and the gift of strong and natural songwriting skills Lachlan Grant Splendor is able to create music which while seemingly simple on the ear holds in the mind far longer than the individual pieces while delivering a message for a softer world in which each finds time for others, while seeking points of connection and not confrontation.
During the past three weeks, three songs have surfaced – each bearing the artwork of Wake Up And Smell The Coffee – I don’t think I am straying too far to conjecture there may well already be a release on its way to follow up the forthcoming (30th of November due) dozen track LP The Choice Is Yours (available directly on the Lachlan Grant Splendor website) which follows on from the 2016 album Cordial, as none of the three newest tracks are on The Choice Is Yours.
The most recent surface song to appear, revealed within the past ten hours, is the track A Simple Life – joined by Bevan Gardiner (secondary vocal and drums) which showcases both the emotional dexterity and the natural timbre of the compositions.

The Australia based gazewave New Zealander, Siena Stone, is working towards the release of the début EP imminently.

The first song to surface from the EP, which was itself released as a standalone single yesterday, Freewheeler transmutes like honey flowing from a spoon as the echoing reverberations of synthesised guitar reform inside one another with chords slowly fading as others continually build whilst the evocative vocal breathes warmly over the ears, creating a song with an alluring enigmatic beauty which foretells of an EP to keep an eye out for on release.

SJS is the Australian based rock-fusion of Stuart Stawman and on the 8th the collaborative LP The World Without will be released.
Whilst largely an album (available on bandcamp) of forlorn temperament contemplating of the harsher realities of life, the listener doesn’t find themselves descending in to a spiral of despondency as merely by articulating that which is of commonly held consternation the audience discovers their own disambiguates of life are shared by others too, cathartically lightening the load from the shoulders.
The music itself is of progressive-rock derivation fused with folk and art-rock with my pick of the release being the sixth of the bakers dozen on the LP Circle Seat.
