The general impression is aggressive and experimental, he adds a lot of influences into his tunes but it always sounds somehow rooted in the Mediterranean, yet with a unique flavour to it. He has also a "project" called United World Music "project", and he has performed with the leading Jazz musicians of Australia...

It is always a pleasure to get CDs with so much emotion in solo instrumental music - Rosario can entertain with giving an insight into his (musical) soul!

Archer is an old time sing-song man. He works the fruit picking rounds, sits under the sky a lot and drives a car if he has to. He's earned his singing spirit from the feet up with his many hours of being out with the country, getting it under his skin the only real way you can.

Archer has a pared-back honest clarity and strength of presence that stand him apart. He sings up the land, its people and animals, in a way that's seldom heard today; with all of himself, without artifice, with dark humour and real beauty. He sounds like he's been singing for a hundred years and will still be singing it in a hundred more just the same. There's no one else doing it like Archer.

The somewhat serious themes of ontology, existentialism, love and loss are framed with sincerity by the lush, but gentle classical guitar work, and the motif of almost whispered, though richly layered vocal harmonies, giving his extensive backlog a kind of naïve optimism for the individual experience.

Boadz

Dale 'Boadz' Boaden has roared onto the Melbourne blues scene over the last 2 years, playing shows to packed rooms throughout Victoria and earning a reputation as one of the most promising up-and-comers working today. Particularly well known for his tribute performance of the 'Complete Works of Robert Johnson', Boadz possesses a deep understanding of the history of the blues. Combined with the background of an accomplished jazz improviser, a sound has emerged that is rough and earthy yet sleek and sophisticated; contemporary while also deeply entrenched in tradition. 

Boadz makes his solo debut at The Wesley Anne with a selection of old blues favourites from the likes of Blind Blake, Lonnie Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson and more, as well as original music fresh from the woodshed.
