Cookie Baker is a pint-sized melodic force to be reckoned with. A walking, talking exercise in compact contradiction and adaptation. As gutsy in person as she is empathetic on stage, as careful with her picked guitar as she is unapologetic with her incisive words, as warm in her interactions as she is unafraid of bringing airtime to the hard stuff.
More often than not penning songs of keenly observed lost love and found habits, Cookie speaks honestly of longing, loss, displacement and isolation, and the emotional debris resulting from these experiences.
‘Rushing, driven, sublime folk and a great voice make this one impressive debut.’ – Nat Tencic, Triple J
Georgia State Line
Honest, agile, and refreshingly self-assured, Georgia State Line’s unique brand of country-infused melancholy yields music that’s equal parts heartsick and hopeful.
Fronted by lauded songwriter Georgia Delves, the Melbourne, Australia-based band melds both vintage and contemporary sounds to craft songs steeped in Tennessee sunsets and the scent of softened leather. Delves’ voice is effortlessly colourful, lyrical and textural with a depth and grace to rival even the most revered of talents.
Georgia State Line has appeared at the National Folk Festival (Canberra, AUS), Dashville Skyline Festival (Belford, AUS), toured alongside acclaimed country-blues artist Eilen Jewell (USA), and in October 2018 will join the bill at Out on the Weekend (Williamstown, AUS).
Georgia State Line celebrate the release of 'Dry My Tears' (via Metropolitan Groove Merchants) with a string of tour dates throughout October/ November.
