Life is a Car­ni­val for mu­si­cians

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

GAYN­DAH song­writ­ers Rachel Koster and Blake Gan­non have com­bined to re­lease a two-track EP called Car­ni­val.

The pair worked to­gether on a com­mu­nity pro­ject a few years ago and that in­spired them to co-write mu­sic, re­sult­ing in the CD ti­tle track.

Rachel said the song took just a cou­ple of hours to write and was com­pleted in one sit­ting.

“Our styles are pretty dif­fer­ent but I was re­ally amazed how or­gan­i­cally the song un­folded as we worked on it,” she said.

“It was great col­lab­o­rat­ing with a nat­u­rally gifted gui­tarist and vo­cal­ist such as Blake.

“He has a re­ally unique de­liv­ery and phras­ing which was a fun chal­lenge to har­monise with.”

Rachel, who is teach­ing art, mind­set and re­silience in the re­gion, also co-wrote the sec­ond song on the EP, I Got You.

The EP launch in De­cem­ber was part of a busy month for Blake who re­cently com­pleted univer­sity and launched a pho­tog­ra­phy web­site.

The EP is a lim­ited press­ing and is cur­rently avail­able for $8 at Gayn­dah Bak­ery, A Lit­tle Dif­fer­ent Cafe, Gayn­dah Post Of­fice, Eidsvold on the Cor­ner and Biggen­den Newsagency.

They are also avail­able on­line at rachelkoster.com.
