Six of my favourite songs by Australian musicians
In my youth I don't remember being aware of that many Australian bands and musicians who were big in the UK. However, I'm guessing there were actually loads of great Australian musicians and the problem was just that their talent hadn't gained the worldwide recognition it deserved.
Whatever the reason, the internet now means that great bands and artists from all over the world can be enjoyed all over the world, and Australia seems to be producing more than its fair share of great music at the moment, so to highlight some of the best, here are six of my favourite tunes by Australian artists.
1) Cypher - Liar
|Liar by Cypher|
Cypher recorded Liar on Garageband on her iPad and if the marketing executives at Apple had any sense they would launch a promotional campaign around this song to showcase the excellent standard of music you can potentially produce with GarageBand.

2) Angus And Julia Stone - Bella

'A Book Like This' by Angus And Julia Stone
In truth Angus And Julia Stone have got so many beautiful chilled out tunes that I could have basically picked any one of their songs for inclusion on this list, but Bella (from the album 'A Book Like This') was the first of their songs which I really got hooked on, so it always has a special significance for me.

6) Oh! Hark! - Lisa Mitchell

At one time this was one of the most played tracks on my iPod out of a playlist of thousands and it has a brilliantly infectious happy feel to it that fills you with energy. Whenever I listen to this, no matter what I'm doing it always makes me want to get up and start dancing about, and it seriously disappoints me that Oh! Hark! didn't go massive on a worldwide scale when it was first released.
