Andrew McCubbin featuring Melinda Kay
Andrew McCubbin and Melinda Kay have just released Where Once There was a Fire to critical acclaim.
"A fantastic, majestic and a total marvel of a record".

Likened to The National, Leonard Cohen and Mark Lanegan & Isobel Campbell, they've recently returned from touring the UK and Europe and are currently touring Australia.
RRR FM put the album in their Top Ten (Soundscapes) and 2BOB FM just gave them Album of the Week.
Robert Brokenmouth (i.94 Mag) put Where Once There was a Fire in his Top Ten albums of the year alongside Public Image Limited and Kraftwerk. He also put the Adelaide album launch in his top ten too alongside PJ Harvey, The Scientists and Hugo Race.
"I swear you feel rather than hear. I don’t think anyone’s really achieved this before."

They recently played live on RRR's The Australian Mood as well as on 3CR 855 AM.
After being touted as the highlight of Hillside Fest 5.0 in Adelaide a few weeks ago, their other Adelaide show has just landed in Mr Brokenmouth's Top Ten Gigs of the Year. Here's some of what he said:
"On the one hand it’s achingly beautiful and moving, on the other it’s quite profoundly uplifting - I can’t actually think of another couple who have used song to expose their inner lives with such clarity and understanding".
