Sweet Aussie music finds, part 2

I know I'm revealing my inner music geek here--you know, the same one who in jr. high thrilled to find obscure British bands she thought no one in Cache Valley had yet discovered? But the good Aussie music finds just keep coming and I really love sharing music gems. So here are a few more favorites (see part 1 here). 

Mia Dyson
- Blues singer with a sound similar to Brandi Carlisle
- moved to the US, has toured with Eric Clapton, Stevie Nicks, and Chris Isaak
- try I Meant Something to You Once





Matt Corby
- mellow acoustic singer with a sound a little like Jeff Buckley 
- beautiful, melancholy songs
- try Made of Stone,  Light Home







San Cisco
- indie pop band with a low-fi garage band sound--reminds me of the Ting Tings
- upbeat tempos and hooks (but some mellower stuff, too)
- try Awkward, Reckless 





Boy & Bear
- a bit of a Mumford & Sons sound
- won breakthrough songwriter of the year 2012 from APRA
- toured with Mumford & Sons, Angus & Julia Stone and others

Paul Greene & The Other Colours
- mellow, upbeat, versatile
