About Me

I am an Italian born Australian country singer, yep it does happen! Please visit my website: www.cleliaadams.com and get to know me better. I have part of the fabric of Australian country music since l975 when I went to live in Tamworth and became firmly entrenched in the recording scene as a session singer in the many studios in the city.

My music is pure roots country and I love to find the hidden gems in the classic country treasure trove, and give them a Clelia makeover. I have 3 albums available: Bring It On from 2001, Heartbeat Highway from 2004 and Wildflowers 2008. These albums have yielded 8 Top 10 hits on the ECMA charts over the years and won numerous industry awards. There are live videos on my website and all my music is on ITunes.

About Me

Jim Whitman

 

Jim Whitman has been enjoying great popularity in the United Kingdom for many years. He has an impressive list of albums to his credit and is a Prolific songwriter.

 

Jim has grew up listening to the sounds of the 50's and 60's and was inspired to take up the guitar when he heard the great songs of Elton Britt, Kenny Roberts, and of course of Slim Whitman.

 

Jim's voice has a wide range and an expressiveness which many singers find it hard to achieve.He also discovered early on,to his delight, that he too could yodel.You don't learn to yodel, it just comes naturally. It then has to be groomed,practiced and tailored to perfection.

 

Jim certainly has nurtured that sweet, smooth yodel over the years and it is a high spot on his live performances.

 

Many artists through the years have modeled themselves on famous Stars of Country Music but Jim is his own man and a big talent on his own right. He has established himself as a singer, performer and songwriter with an abundance of self determination.

 

With a string of successful albums behind him, scores of full houses wherever he appears, Jim Whitman has certainly earned his place in Country Music history.

 

An ever expanding repertoire ranging from traditional to modern country and a wide range of his own very successful Irish ballads are always in demand.

Hi!  My name is Paul Robert Thomas & I am a published song lyricist (try saying that after a few beers:)!

I was born & grew up in North London with Camden Town, Swiss Cottage, Primrose Hill & Regents Park as my playgrounds.

I now live (or try my best to live) in Israel. I have some Welsh blood in me too as my mother & grandmother were from Swansea in Wales.

My musical & lyrical roots are drawn from English Folk, American Folk & Blues, Christian/Gospel with influences from English nursery rhymes and church hymns.

I am a member of the MCPS-PRS Alliance (ASCAP), London (CAE 497904008) and the International Songwriters Association.
