Supporting Independent Australian Artists
Recorded Live in the Highland FM Studios
Highland FM Live is a platform dedicated to giving a voice to the rich diversity of contemporary Australian musicians and songwriters that tell our stories, contribute to our culture and give voice to our communities.
“South-coast singer/songwriter Dan Challis melds lyrically-driven acoustic folk music, with a storytelling focus.
His songs centre on the lived-experience and befit his troubadour ethos; living out the very life he tells stories about through his music.”
“Greg Powell is a good friend, horseman, singer / songwriter and great human being”.
…”Greg has previously worked tirelessly to support Brumbies and troubled kids. He has run clinics with Mission Australia & Father Riley’s Youth of the Streets via his charity at his property at Kalandan near Cooma. He has experienced the highs of running his equestrian shows, winning Equitana, making a real difference to people and horses and also the bitter lows with the loss of his Dad to MND and losing in relationships.”
Sara Berki is a Southern Highlands-based country singer-songwriter with the voice of angel and songs to melt the hardest of hearts.

Already she has been endorsed by Takamine guitars and Pro Music Australia and she is on the line-up for Tamworth Country Music Festival in January.
