Cheynne Murphy is a folk rocker hailing from the alternative never-lands of Byron Bay, Australia and just released what is his most accomplished work to date, a debut album: A Horse Called Freedom, this year, in August 2014 . He states: ‘Music has always been an innocent pursuit for me. Its been a constant companion and song-writing is a balm for my soul.
Soulman O’Gaia will be entertaining the market goers. A towering 6 foot 5 inches tall, he is a fluent raconteur spreading feel-good vibes in the high energy performances that are his trademark. His dynamic groove-laden rhythms on guitar, didgeridoo, mouth-harp, slide and assorted percussion move from toe tapping country-funk and blues, to road-ready rock’n’roll and journey on through folksy balladeering to Caribbean style reggae all in the service of the most positive and inspiring songs played back to back…anywhere.
Soulman has a big voice that reaches out with great range and clarity and it is his most powerful calling card. When he sings you see the intensity of emotion on his face shift to the joy of a smile welcoming the presence of the soulful gospel jazz and blues of his musical ancestry.
