Gerard Masters is a highly in demand Sydney based keyboardist with a wealth of musical experience. The most recent in a long list of credits include co-writing several songs for The Potbelleez latest album Destination Now, touring as lead keyboardist for Pete Murray and The McClymonts on their respective national tours, providing expertise as keyboardist and Musical Director for Australian Idol Winner Wes Carr and supporting Lior as a solo artist in several shows around Sydney.

It is Gerard’s work as a solo artist, however, which inspires him most. Gerard made his mark on the Indie scene in 2009 with his successful EP Spin which received both airplay and acclaim on Triple J and Rage. With an insatiable hunger for creation, and determined to leave no musical rock unturned, Gerard returned to the Studio in 2011 to find new inspiration and craft new sounds. 2012 has already seen him emerge from the musical chrysalis with a demo album of fresh contemporary tunes that are a colourful blend of his jazz roots and eclectic modern pop influences.

Gerard's new album Signs Of Life is coming your way soon, and it will be well worth the wait.


When Camille Te Nahu arrived in Australia in 1999 her vocal talents were immediately recognised by Kasey Chambers and Beccy Cole who employed her as their backing singer both on the road and in the studio. Over the years, Camille and Stuie released their own albums – Stuie with the Feral Swing Katz (Come out Swingin’, Feral Swing Katz with Peter Busher and Round 4) and Camille’s solo album (Camille Te Nahu), and their paths would often cross as they both toured with Australian country stars (Troy Cassar Daly and Gina Jeffreys).  But it wasn’t until 2002 when their stars aligned and they fell in love.

“I’ll never forget the first time I heard Camille sing.  It took my breath away as well as the rest of the guys in band, and suddenly our musicianship went up a couple of notches. Over the years she has taught me a new way to approach guitar playing.  After all, why would you want to get in the way of a voice like that?  Our different musical backgrounds over time has combined to give us a fresh yet traditional sound.” – Stuie French

2012 sees the release of their fourth, and finest, album together, Big Days & Little Years. The album is a gentle look at the cycle of life and the sweet sorrow of change. With loving respect Camille and Stuie acknowledge the importance of the unbreakable thread that is family.

Stuie is a master of the country/jazz guitar-style (Les Paul invited him up to play in New York), and his smooth voice harks back to the days of Tommy Duncan singing with Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys – no pretense or exaggeration. 

 Camille and Stuie are truly a musical marriage made in heaven. Big Days & Little Years is a must-have collection of beautiful moments.


From humble beginnings in a shed atop an isolated outcrop, the phenomenon of Round Mountain Girls has etched itself into the” strange but true” annals of Australian musicology.

Five like-minded souls were brought together for pure gratification, by playing the kind of music they adore - and they carry this attitude into every performance.

It’s no wonder that they have carved out the reputation they now enjoy, as being one of the most thrilling live bands on the festival circuit.

Five years of fun-filled graft are starting to bear fruit as the awards have begun to flow, and the main stages at Australia’s most prestigious festivals beckon. Bluesfest, Woodford, Tamworth, Gympie, Urban Country, three Golden Fiddle Awards, song writing accolades and a certificate of participation for under 50’s soccer are concrete evidence of the bands’ multi-talented gifts.

Two albums and a recently released covers EP confirm that categorisation is proving troublesome.

One thing is certain though; that you, like all the others that have witnessed RMG at full bore, will feel a need to repeat the dose, and that addiction is an all too realistic prospect. You have been warned.
