Asa Broomhall (QLD)
If you fancy a mix of Rock, Folk and Blues with a dose of mischief, make sure you hear Asa's music and experience one of Australia's best kept secrets. On stage, Asa's dynamic live shows (performing solo or with his trio) has taken him from local venues and festivals to touring with national and international artists (including Evermore, Diesel, Pete Murray, Jeff Martin, Ian Moss, Chris Whitley and Kelly Joe Phelps) and performing in the UK, Canada and the USA. With four self-funded, independent and self-produced releases under his belt, Asa's dedication to his music and his live show is obvious.
Queensland's favorite Rock/Roots larrikin; Asa Broomhall has done it again with his self-produced album ' Revelry Road'. Recorded live over 5 days in the farmhouse where Asa grew up on the Sunshine Coast. It builds on his previous work by seamlessly combining full band tracks and solo acoustic songs showing the true depth of his songwriting and musicianship. You may say it is a Rock and Roll record with a hint of Folk but it has elements of Blues, Country and even a bit of Calypso?
This album also features some of SE Qld's finest musicians on instruments such as Cello and Piano and an appearance on Guitar by one of Australia's most revered artists; Mark Lizotte (Diesel).
"Asa has evolved on every level with his third album Homemade, pushing both his musical and lyrical dexterity into new territory." (Time Off)
"Highly entertaining and musically accomplished, Asa is every bit the polished performer." (Tsunami Magazine)
"A powerhouse guitar player and singer-songwriter developing a distinctive voice of his own." (Noel Mengel, The Courier Mail)
"His instrumental prowess is stunning, his lyrics sharp and cutting, presented in a clear vocal style that ranges from talking blues to melodic cadences." (Rhythms)
