Contemporary/Roots Artists:

R & R (ACT)

R & R (ACT) Acoustic Duo
Rock, pop covers and originals

Richard & Rachel is an accomplished duo with a large repertoire of both sequenced and acoustic songs. This combination gives them a powerful advantage for clients who may require a more intimate performance. This versatility also means they have a competitive advantage over a more limited sequenced duo. Richard supplies the strong yet angelic main vocals and Rachel supplies the beautiful harmonies. They both play beautiful Maton guitars. Before relocating to Canberra Richard & Rachel played regularly at the Mollymook Golf Club, Batemans Bay Bowling Club and other venues on the South Coast. Richard and Rachel were invited guests at The National Folk Festival in 2001. They also were the support act for Renee Geyer at The Milton Theatre. Richard & Rachel performed 3 of their own songs live on ABC’s Triple 6. Richard & Rachel - “R & R” - available for bookings at clubs, pubs, weddings, parties etc.

This band really get the crowd going with their great mix of pub rock covers from now to Hendrix, Stones, Beatles, REM, Coldplay.... and rock 'n roll favourites. Led by the powerful presence of David O'Brien on vocals/guitar backed with bass and drums. A hit at King O'Mallley's pub in Canberra!



CASS EAGER (NSW)

CASS EAGER (NSW) duo or trio

soul, blues, roots

Cass's trademark rhythmic acoustic guitar sound, and all with Cass's husky-soaked vocals and strong melodies - bringing songs to life. Her repertoire covers originals with a collision of styles, from soul to blues, folk to gospel, roots to reggae. From the heartfelt soulfulness of Sister to the killer slide-guitar blues of 'Take These Wings' and the reggae-inspired groove of the crowd favourite 'Beautiful Day', Cass' themes move from the tenderness of solitude, of love found and lost, to an expressive celebration of life. The instrumentation running through these songs adapt to fit the feel, from slide guitar to hammond & rhodes piano, harmonica, violins, stompbox and ukelele. Cass has visited East Timor 5 times since 2002 performing for Aussie Troops, UN peacekeepers, locals & children in orphanages. She performed with Paul Kelly and Peter Garrett to over 40,000 people at Dili Stadium for Timors Independence Day Anniversary Concert. This inspired Kelly to put together the Timor-Leste Freedom Rising compilation (EMI/Capitol), and included Cass's single, Beautiful Day along with singles from John Butler, Missy Higgins, Paul Kelly, The Cruel Sea, Kasey Chambers, The Cat Empire and many more.
Prince Harry, who saw her perform at Kerry Packers polo property, was so taken by the gig, he asked her for a repeat performance the following week which led to Cass giving him guitar lessons.
Cass has performed with artists such as The Beautiful Girls, Alex Lloyd, Lior, Diesel, Paul Kelly, iOTA, Carus, Bob Egan and Carla Werner to name a few. She has also appeared on 4 other CD compilations of independent artists and named Emerging Australian Artist on SBA Musics international compilation. She showcased recently at NXNE in Toronto and MMC10 in Philidelphia. Hopefully, she will return to North America in the very near future! Ideal for quality pub, club, festival and concert audiences. A fresh bright sound that is TODAY!
