New on The Show

The Waifs
“Blindly Believing” -  “On the fringes, lots of styles, really is a great song” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Formed: 1992 in Albany, Australia
Genre: Singer/Songwriter
Josh Cunningham Waif  (Guitar Vocals, Songwriter), Vikki Thorn Waif (Guitar Harmonica, Vocals Songwriter), Donna Simpson Waif (Guitar vocals, Songwriter), Ben Franz (Bass), David Ross Macdonald (Drums)
Home Town: Albany Western Australia

Beloved Australian folk rock band
A trip that began in a van in 1992, with the three troubadours playing gigs anywhere in Australia that would have them, has led The Waifs to multiple ARIA awards, platinum albums in Australia and successful tours across the world, including opening for Bob Dylan in North America and Australia in 2003.

The Waifs released BEAUTIFUL YOU on August 14th. Produced by Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Peal Jam, Powderfinger), the album was written between the USA and Australia by The Waifs’ songwriting trifecta of Donna Simpson, Vikki Thorn and Josh Cunningham.

The resulting 12-song collection merges the three separate songwriters into a cohesive, roots-rock musical feast. Along with bassist Ben Franz and drummer David Ross Macdonald, the five-piece outfit created an album that echoes with both wisdom and pop appeal.
True to form, BEAUTIFUL YOU features their trademark sound: “a bit of Blues and Roots, a bit of Country, a bit of Jazz, anything really.”
Review: Beautiful You is generally unfussy and organic-sounding with enough rock muscle to keep it moving along at a decent clip. Opener "Black Dirt Track" is a gently urgent, slow-building rocker from Vikki, who looks wistfully back on the rural Australia of her childhood. Addiction still looms in Donna's consciousness on the title cut, but this time she's on the other side, observing someone else's struggle.
“Unflinchingly honest and musically exploratory.” —Billboard
“Intimate, heartfelt songs that move at the speed of a road trip.” —
“The Waifs are a truly rare combination of extremely talented songwriters and musicians that continue to quietly build their legacy one masterpiece at a time.” —
Jasmine Rae: All time favourite artist/band: Dolly Parton and The Waifs

Annie Gallup
“West Memphis Arkansas”

Singer/songwriter Annie Gallup specializes in the contemporary folk genre. Hailing from Seattle, WA, Gallup taught herself how to play guitar as a teenager, influenced by the likes of Doc Watson, Mississippi John Hurt, and Dave Van Ronk, as she honed her fingerpicking playing style. She soon began penning her own compositions, equally influenced by musicians (Paul Simon), as well as authors (Margaret Atwood, Joan Didion), as she began performing locally in front of crowds in 1988. 

The first songs of Gallup's to appear on CD were on such multi-artist compilations as Whirled Records' Acoustic Sampler and Victory Music's A Victory for Kids in the early '90s. Beginning in 1994, Gallup issued full-length solo recordings on a regular basis, including 1994's Cause and Effect on her own label, Flying Hair, before signing with the 1-800 Prime label in New York, and issuing 1996's Backbone, 1998's Courage My Love, 1999's Steady Steady Yes, and 2001's Swerve. Gallup tours constantly (sometimes spending up to ten months on the road), and has received several songwriting awards over the years, including the Telluride Troubadour Contest (Telluride, CO, 1994), was a finalist at the Columbia Music Festival (Spokane, WA, 1992), and earned an honorable mention at the Napa Valley Music Festival (Napa, CA, 1993).
Released May 2015 GHOST (Gallway Bay Music, 2015), Annie's tenth solo recording, features A-listers Gabe Witcher (Paul Simon, Eric Clapton) on fiddle, and David West (Cache Valley Drifters, Kate Wolf) on dobro and mandolin. Produced by Gallup and Peter Gallway, recorded at Gallway Bay, Santa Barbara, CA it pairs Annie's award-winning songwriting with a string band sound.
