Ishan has that magic combination of incredible talent supported by a grit and work ethic to match. His music is honest, unique and full of emotional punch that hits in the chest. He can hold a room, but even more, he opens hearts and speaks directly to them. At a recent performance, there was a palpable silence during his set, he held the audience and took them on a journey.


Mick is founding member of northern NSW country rock and roll outfit The Re-Mains, who from 2000 to present have toured every rodeo and inner city dive in Australia, made three massive tours of Canada and a successful run through Europe.

He’s frontman of Mick Daleys Corporate Raiders, who play all over rural Victoria, South Australia and Melbourne and have toured as far afield as the North Coast National in the Northern Rivers of NSW. They’re releasing a vinyl single post-lockdown and putting the finishing touches to an album begun pre-lockdown.

Mick’s in town recording with the Raiders and a new solo album. His last, Tiny Violins was produced and played on by Matt Walker (Lost Ragas, Tex Perkins) and his new record revels in the same Dylanesque lyricism and arcane Australiana.
