A powerful singer-songwriter who effortlessly fuses the sounds of Americana, folk, country and blues delivered with a commanding voice that is equal parts gravel and passion, Seeckts has earned himself a solid reputation over the years, sharing the stage with some amazing artists including The Teskey Brothers, Archie Roach, Cash Savage, Tex Perkins, Raised By Eagles, Joe Pug, Austin Lucas and Cory Branan, to name a few.
Having spent a decade touring much of Australia and parts of North America, Nathan Seeckts’ acclaimed debut album The Heart Of The City in 2019 cemented him as one of the most exciting new voices on the Australian Americana landscape. The album received a nomination for Country Album of The Year at the 2019 Music Victoria Awards, earned Seeckts an opportunity to showcase his talent at AmericanaFest in Nashville, and opened the door for him to be selected as the Queenscliff Music Festival Emerging Artist of The Year.
Last month heralded the first new music from Seeckts released in three years with ‘I Get To See My Baby’, a joyous celebration of love and recent arrivals. With a brand-new album to follow in early 2023, his performance at Pistol Pete’s promises to be a must-see, especially considering he’ll be joined on stage for the night by Marc Dunn on banjo, reworking some of his songs to get your backside shaking and your toes tapping!
“Rhianna and I have been cooking up some awesome sounds for this Saturday nights show. We’d love to see a bunch of your happy faces there, shaking loose from the week that’s been and giving you something to smile about for the week to come,” Seeckts says.
“If you were thinking of coming, call up all your friends, grab a ticket and dust off your dancing shoes.”
Joining Seeckts on Saturday night will be the ever-talented Rhianna Fibbins, who will perform on stage in a trio style with Heath Joyce and Zac Watson.
Having spent many years with her sister in country band ‘The Sideshow Brides’ performing anywhere from pubs and festivals to singing backing vocals for Australian rock legends Dallas Crane supporting fellow Australian mega stars Cold Chisel and American southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rhianna has started a little solo project, creating her unique brand of country music that weaves the nitty gritty with a touch of homespun longing.
Born and raised in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales, the now locally-based singer-songwriter is gearing up to release her debut EP ‘From The Valley Looking Out’, recorded at Point Lonsdale Studio ‘Resting Bell’ with renowned producer Nick Huggins at the wheel and features Chance McCoy (Old Crow Medicine Show). Spanning a warm and emotive collection of songs close to her heart, Rhianna weaves themes of true heartbreak and grit with optimistic charm. Each song a little emotional landmark in her life of raw heartstring pullers with a touch of homespun longing.
