ONE TO WATCH! CAITLYN SHADBOLT TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘SONGS ON MY SLEEVE’ OUT MAY 26th
Fresh from taking home the coveted award for Female Artist of the Year at the recent Country Music Awards New Zealand, Jody Direen tomorrow releases her brand new album ‘BREAKS OUT’ in Australia, through ABC Music/Universal.
Jody’s latest single ‘TOGETHER’ was released in Australia earlier this month. The song topped the NZ iTunes Country Chart on release earlier this year, peaking at #8 on the pop chart.

Jody will touch down in Australia later this month for two anticipated performances at the Gympie Music Muster in QLD. She cut her teeth supporting international superstar Kenny Rogers on his recent tour of New Zealand, and performed a set right before Grammy Award-winning artist Kacey Musgraves at CMC Rocks QLD to a 10,000-strong crowd. Jody has just been announced in the first line-up for CMC Rocks QLD 2016, alongside a slate of country music stars including Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Kip Moore and more.
Jody is one of the most exciting country-pop-rock artists to emerge from New Zealand in recent years. Hailing from the heart of the South Island (Wanaka), Jody worked under the guidance of Bear Gylls’ US-based talent management company for six months before launching her 2013 single ‘LOUD’. The single shot straight to the top of the New Zealand iTunes Country Chart on release, peaking at #13 on the Australian Country Official Top 40 alongside an array of international artists.
On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, the Exes are a powerhouse of charm and songwriting prowess. Fair warning: this foursome is the most badass female folk band around.
Lee Kernaghan releases a very special 25th Anniversary album.
