  • Winters wonder

    June 22, 2016

    Ah winter, I know not everyone is a fan, but there is something particularly cosy and enjoyable about her reign, early morning jogs in the mist and toasty fires at night. Last night I played at an amazing community gathering in Albury, a winter solstice event with a focus on supporting those affected by suicide. On the coldest and shortest day of the year, the rain did not cease in it’s presence, but the people still gathered, with deep compassion and vulnerability and strength of the human spirit, a sea of multi-coloured umbrellas stoody by fire barrels.

    After a busy and fruitful time of touring and releasing our new album “Southern Light” The Wheels and I are taking a little breather over Winter before we hit the road again in spring. October will see us taking to the country roads, with a sweet run of regional Victorian shows- including Red Hill, Warnambool, Alexandra, Castlemaine and more. Keep your eye on this space over the coming months as we announce festivals and our spring/summer tour dates. In the meantime I have a number of solo/duo shows coming up, head on over to the shows tab for more details.

  • NEW ALBUM RELEASE AND ALBUM TOUR #KICKSTARTSOUTHERNLIGHT

    December 15, 2015

    Hey there lovely gang,

    Sal here. Our new album ‘SOUTHERN LIGHT’ is finished and nearly ready to share. We will be officially releasing ‘SOUTHERN LIGHT’ out into the ether, car stereos and record players on the 3RD FEB 2016. We had a gorgeous time making the album with close friend SHANE O’MARA at yikesvilles studios in Melbourne. As an Independent band we have self-funded this album and all our previous albums and tours, but as some of you probably know – releasing and touring a large band can sometimes be a challenging thing financially, so we have decided to run a short little crowdfunding campaign on KICKSTARTER to help us cover some of the big costs associated with the upcoming release and tour. On the Kickstarter site you can pre-order our new album and recieve it 2 weeks before it’s official release, which is really only a month away, you can also get rewards like a private yoga/medititation session with our beautiful Mumma Jillian, Bushdances, Kimber recordings from the 80’s and so on.

    KICKSTARTER LINK : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1314022986/help-release-sal-kimber-and-the-rollin-wheels-new

    We will be taking our new album ‘SOUTHERN LIGHT’ right around Australia during 2016, starting with our SOUTHERN SUMMER HALLS TOUR, a run of shows in halls and unique venues in RURAL VIC. We love and understand the importance of touring rural Australia and can’t wait to rock out in places such as BUANGOR and OXLEY and of course near BUFFY and my home town when we play the TALLANGATTA VALLEY HALL. Joining us on our SOUTHERN SUMMER HALLS tour will be close friend and folk singer sweetheart ‘JOHN FLANAGAN’. John will be releasing his new album ‘Another Way to Where You Are Going’ in Feb, so we have decided to hit the road together. I am a bit in love with John’s new album, a total elixir for the aches and pains, full of hope and light, I can’t think of a better artist to release our new album alongside. John and I will be touring together thru the first half of 2016, from Vic to WA, a mix of FULL BAND and cut back intimate house concert shows. Click on the shows tab for links to tickets etc and if you would like us to come to your town during the year -drop me a line on salkimber@gmail.com or our booker cat@thebookingstable.com. Many more shows to announce soon, but for now here are a few…..

  • Second Single Release and Upcoming Shows

    October 21, 2015

     

    We have just released a new song, Hell and Highwater, the second single from our forthcoming album. The song shares stories of human resilience and strength, as experienced thru fire and flood. Produced by the talented Mr Omara at yikesville studios, Hell and Highwater features the sweet musicianship of D.A CALF and Chris Parkinson (of the Yearlings) on guitars, Tully Sumner on golden harmonies, Richie Rose on the da bass and our Buffy Beth Kimber on keys and Catty Leahy on Drums.

    We will be playing two single launches in Victoria, one in Melbourne city at the Toff in Town Sat 21st Nov and one in gorgeous North East Vic at The Beechworth Town Hall Sun 22nd Nov.

    You can also catch us at a few festivals over the coming months, including the Fleurieu Folk Festival (SA), Happy Wanderer Festival (VIC) and the Bendigo Blues and Roots Festival (VIC).

    And lastly, here is a little pic from my adventures out West with the gorgeous Waifs clan in September. I had an absolute ball, travelling red dirt soil with some of my fav Aus musicians, we covered 4000 miles from Kalgoorlie to Broome, snorkelled at Coral Bay, rode bareback at Cosey Corner, played the stunning Perth Concert Hall with an audience of 1600 people and penned songs about Chiko Rolls.

  • NEW SINGLE RELEASE, VID CLIP & TOUR

    May 15, 2015

    Print

    Today is the official release day for our new single STUMBLE IN THE DARK! You can get a copy of the song via iTunes – click here.

    We’ve also made a video clip with the wonderful Agostino Soldati. We had a very adventurous day and night of recording at a friend’s bush shack near Bells Beach, Victoria. The shack had no electricity, so we used candles and 50 year old hurricane lanterns to light our way. Hope you like it!

    Our single launch tour kicks off in a few weeks – we’re looking forward to hitting the road together, it has been a while between tours… and we hope see you out on the road! (And if we’re not visiting your town this time around, we hope to see you for our album tour later in the year!)

    Big love,
    Sal, Cat, Buff and the Rollin’ Wheel team
