Nathan’s upcoming EP 'Demons' stretches beyond the traditional rock, blues and roots that Cavaleri is known for. The release of the first single 'Demons' marked his 6 year rise above mental health challenges and return to the stage. 'Rising Sun' is a track in which he pays tribute to the man that landed him his first record deal and tour at age 10, Jimmy Barnes, and is an emotive step from the profoundly beautiful title track.

This will be Nathan’s first solo release since he was signed to Michael Jackson’s label in 1994 and features songs that are a culmination of the diverse life Nathan has lived. B.B.King calling Nathan “the future of blues” is definitely an appropriate quote for how he has expanded beyond his roots.

Following the release of ‘Howlin at the Moon’ earlier this year, Melbourne’s very own blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk is delighted to celebrate the release of his latest single ‘Save My Soul’.

Co-produced with Nick Huggins (Jen Cloher, Fraser A Gorman, Mick Turner) ‘Save My Soul’ is a heavy groover that Kirk says was initially inspired by a character he spotted walking forlornly along the shoulder of a cold, dark Hume Highway late one night whilst driving home from a run of shows up north. The quick sighting leading Kirk to the opening line of the song - “kicking stones along the highway”. From there his imagination took over.
