Post To Wire

Post To Wire is a blog dedicated to the different strands of Americana music. We publish reviews, interviews, news and multimedia content from country, folk, blues and roots artists from Australia, New Zealand and around the world.

After creating and publishing the music website Doubtful Sounds I found that I was also driven to developing a secondary blog focusing exclusively on Americana music. A life long Neil Young obsession started it all for me and led me into a musical world that included the likes of Wilco, Richmond Fontaine, Ryan Adams, Hank Williams, Karen Dalton, Nick Drake, Will Oldham, Jason Molina, Lucinda Williams, The Felice Brothers, Loretta Lynn, Gillian Welch, Lambchop, Howe Gelb, The Band, Drive-By Truckers, Townes Van Zandt and a thousand other musicians. This is music that is heartfelt, emotionally rich and sonically thrilling, from the most ramshackle hoedown to a single plaintiff guitar and voice it is music that speaks from and to the soul.

PTW was a finalist in the 2013 Pedestrian.TV Ultrabook Blogster Awards, features regularly as a guest programmer on 2ser FM’s The Outpost, hosts fortnightly Heartbreaker Sessions gigs and has presented Australian shows by Fanny Lumsden, Mark Moldre, The Weeping Willows, Katie Brianna, Caitlin Harnett, James Thomson, Ben Bunting, Roland Kay-Smith, Jen Mize, Gretta Ziller and Darren Cross. You can follow PTW on Facebook and Twitter.
