COUNTY & DESERT My Name Is Nobody
MY NAME IS NOBODY (mynameisnobody.com.au)
There’s a sense of space here: vast vistas that can replenish the soul with their sprawling beauty, or unsettle it because of that very same expansiveness. Most of us, after all, cling with our fingernails to this continent’s seaboard, our backs to a desert emptiness that can excite a little psychic angst. My Name Is Nobody consists of three Western Australians: drummer Ban Vanderwal (who writes most of the material), Tom O’Halloran (piano, keyboards) and Lucky Oceans (pedal steel and national guitars). Although assorted guests join them here and there the trio is remarkably self-contained as it lets beguiling melodies unfold over slow, understated grooves. They have a keen ear for layering sounds, so that the barely heard, carillon-like piano arpeggios on Rambling Waltz, for instance, are precisely what lends the piece its disquieting depth. Perhaps no instrument so instantly conjures a particular sound-world as the pedal-steel, but those country leanings (supported by the presence of two Willie Nelson tunes) are somehow made more primal: the soundtrack to our pioneers, perhaps, rather than to sharp contemporary dudes in cowboy hats.

Congratulations to Shameem Taheri-Lee! 2017 Grand Prize Winner (Gospel) The John Lennon Songwriting Competition for her original song “Pass It On” featuring on her latest EP Time Does Not Reverse.
Production will be starting on new EP for artist Shaun Paul this month. A great selection of tunes and a haunting vocal.
It’s always a pleasure working with songstress Shameem. Here’s the latest single and video “I Love You, But”. The full EP is due for release next month, enjoy!
The talented guys from The Encounters just after we finished the mix on their next single release.
Here’s a happy snap from our session with Young Robin, whilst working on their next single release.
Feb/March continues to be busy at Soundbaker with recording & production for the next EP with Shameem. With only a couple of backing vocals to go, we are getting close to the mix stage of this tasteful, 90’s pop inspired EP.
Everything is now tracked for the Dave Scott EP with a helping had from session guys John Trotter (Drums) and Joe Southwell (Bass) – the songs have come alive.
