Byron Council to introduce car-free Sundays in the centre of town

Byron Council has taken a further step toward getting cars out of, and pedestrians into, the centre of Byron, by voting to introduce car-free Sundays.

Four-piece Melbourne band The Stillsons have been touring their special blend of folk, blues and country nationwide for the past eighteen months, winning over new audiences and picking up many accolades along the way for their second album Earnest.

So far it has been named ‘album of the week’ by five radio stations, including ABC Dig, ABC Gold Coast, ABC Bendigo and Radio Adelaide. It has also been highly regarded in the national press, being named ‘Best Of The Week’ in the Sydney Morning Herald, January 2012. Many of their songs are continuing to reach overseas, being played on NZ Radio, BBC Scotland and BBC Ulster.

In June 2012, Jimmy’s Treehouse was released as a UK single, and has been broadcast on a broad range of shows on BBC Radio 2.

Formed in 2007, The Stillsons are made up of the three members, with songwriting and vocals shared by guitar ace Justin Bernasconi and Cat Canteri on drums. Ben Franz (of The Waifs) plays the pedal steel guitar.

The band released their debut album Circus in 2009. Circus received airplay on both national and international radio, featured in many popular music publications. Their highly regarded music video Charity and Ghosts is regularly broadcast on RAGE and Country Music TV.

Earnest was released in late 2011 through the band’s own label Mountain King Music, and distributed through FUSE.

See them a the Currumbin Soundlounge, Friday, supported by Laneway.
