COAD SISTERS - BIG BANDY
(V.Hermel)

 

Known locally as ‘Big Bandy', Bendieuta Creek is a massive gum creek that carries flood water from the Flinders Ranges in South Australia out to the plains and Lake Frome.
Coad Sisters grew up in this isolated area so know first hand how harsh the outback can be in drought and how welcome drought breaking rain is to the land and life upon it.
Rare are the 'inches' of rain that bring 'Big Bandy' down bank to bank.
Written by Virginia Hermel (of Coad Sisters) this vibrant toe tapping bush story was recorded by Coad Sisters and features the two sisters on vocals, harmonies and instrumentation.

1942 – PETER COAD OAM
(P. Coad/V. Hermel)

 

"G’day friends,

"This is a song I wrote in memory of the 1st of a series of raids, the Japanese made on Darwin 80 years ago.
There are still many historic reminders from war time Darwin in the Northern Territory.
Over the years, I have spoken to people who were soldiers stationed there at that time and as it is 80 years (in 2022) since the first attack we give thanks to those who stepped up and kept Australia safe in a time of great conflict.
I felt inspired to jot down the words and my sister Virginia put music to them and Coad Sisters did the backing for the song.
My thanks to everyone for your support of my music."

Peter

COAD SISTERS

'Livin' It Up (In The Territory)'

Single released 25th March 2022
Released on CRS Publicity 28/6/2022

 

After a stint playing at Mataranka NT in 2021, meeting both visitors and locals, Virginia (of COAD SISTERS) felt inspired to write a driving upbeat, good time song to try capture the lifestyle vibe of living in the NT.

Virginia features on lead vocals and lead guitar solos, with Lynette on harmonies, bass and drums.

COAD SISTERS will be returning to Mataranka to play through June/July 2022.


Lyrics and single cover included with track download.


We are having a ball singing this song at our shows here at The Territory Manor Motel & Caravan Park at Mataranka in the Northern Territory (1st June - 31st July 2022), so to celebrate our time playing here our track is FREE download over JUNE/JULY! :)
After that time it returns to $2.19!! ;)

2 NEW SINGLES!!
'Long Way Round' & 'Big Red'.


Both singles - to radio
via CRS PUBLICITY Tuesday 22/2/2022


Both tracks available via Digital Download on our website. (see info/links below)



--------------

 

Peter Coad OAM - Long Way Round (P.Coad)

Written by Peter Coad, ‘Long Way Round’ is from a forthcoming album.
Peter says, “The idea came about when I travelled the ‘Long Way Round’ from Hawker down to Quorn in South Australia via a seldom used dirt road which takes you through station country west of the Flinders Ranges and the bitumen road, and would have been a main access for folks travelling north.
I passed the grave of pioneer Hugh Proby, and I drove through a onetime thriving farming community now just abandoned farm houses, and old machinery left to fade into time.
The rusty gates I opened along the road had seen both people and history come and go on the ‘Long Way Round’.”

--------------

COAD SISTERS - Big Red (V. Hermel)

Written by Virginia Hermel (of the COAD SISTERS) ‘Big Red’ is a song about one of Australia's racing legends, Phar Lap.
"We had a framed colour photo of Phar Lap on the wall at home." Virginia said. “I was inspired to write the song when I recently saw our photo of Phar Lap again, and realised 2022 was the 90 year anniversary of his death.
'Big Red' was one of the favourite nicknames by which Phar Lap was known, so that seemed a logical song title.
Little did I think as a child that so many years later that photo would lead to me writing a song about Phar Lap.”
'Big Red' is another single from a forthcoming album for COAD SISTERS.

'Land Of Acacia' - Coad Sisters
'Land Of Acacia' is the first single from a forthcoming album for Coad Sisters.
Fulltime in music for over 30 years the two sisters continue to present their unique blend of traditional style Country and Aussie story ballads from covers to originals on their albums.
Coad Sisters last album ‘The Journey’ featured many award wins and finalists with their original material.
'Land of Acacia' written by Virginia Coad of Coad Sisters, is a gentle ballad which showcases Coad Sisters vocal harmonies, and lyrically relates to the sisters’ home area of the Flinders Ranges, SA, in particular, the desert country in the far north of SA where they spent their childhood, 'In the Land of Acacia, (and wild Desert Rose').
