2017 was an amazing year for Donna Lou & The Jay Katz with the release of their Independent EP Cupid Shot My Heart. Then 2018 bettered 2017 with performances in Tamworth and a semi-finalist nomination in the Tamworth Songwriters Association Awards, opening for the WA Country Music Awards and taking home the WA Country Music Award for Group/Duo of the Year. Heaps of gigging and meeting people up and down the West coast and inland from there. It has been a rewarding and inspiring adventure.
But…nothing stays the same! When Donna and Jason headed to their new life in the North West, not only did the scenery and the weather change, but so did their music. This brought to life, Desert Road.
Based in Carnarvon WA, they endeavor to bring a little energy to the stage with songs that try to capture their stories with a feel of the nostalgia. If you like to redneck it, kick up your feet and have a little fun, you will enjoy this! You may have seen us before but things are a changin’ and the red dirt is in everything, including the music. Their new album, Down That Road is in the pipeline and the first single is due in December. Watch this space!
“We are pretty excited to once again be a part of this amazing festival. It is always great to catch up with some of the best people on the planet as well as be immersed in some of the best country music Australia has on offer. I can’t wait for February 2019 to arrive…”
