Having had a good run of 7+ years blogging my favorite music, I’ve decided that it’s time to pursue other interests and take a break. There have been heaps of good blogs that have done exactly that lately… perhaps the streaming services have all the hits now… definitely the age of the independent blogging scene is on the wane.
I never intended this to be anything but a hobby, an outlet for my passion for artists and their craft, and a love affair with Australia’s every growing music scene. I will continue to follow and support new and upcoming talent but not in the same way. If you haven’t yet please like my page on Facebook where I will continue to share my new music discoveries from time to time. Thanks again to all those who supported and followed Music From Go to Whoa and formerly You Are the Music over the years. Cheers! Indy

Brighton rock trio, Esben and the Witch, are back with a new song, “Dig Your Fingers In” taken from the new album “A New Nature” to be released September 1st 2014.
“You know, we as black people have to come to grips that hip-hop is a contagious culture,” Questlove continued. “If you love something, you gotta set it free. I will say that ‘Fancy,’ above any song that I’ve ever heard or dealt with, is a game-changer in that fact that we’re truly going to have to come to grips with the fact that hip-hop has spread its wings.”
And that is exactly what is occurring Down Under with bands like Illy and DT3, check out their song below:

Sydney-born, Melbourne-based songwriter Laura Jean first came to national attention in 2006 with the release of her debut album Our Swan Song. Lush and pastoral, adorned with strings, woodwind and beautiful modal harmonies, Our Swan Song was a critical and popular favourite, gaining Triple J high rotation and introducing Laura Jean as a powerful, exotic new voice in Australian music. “First Love Song” is the first single from Laura Jean’s self-titled album, released by Chapter Music on August 22, 2014.
