Front Deck Boom Box: Jetty Road

8 March 2022 | 3:23 pm | Mallory Arbour

We caught up with Jetty Road to find out what songs they’re listening to for this week’s Front Deck Boom Box.

More Jetty Road More Jetty Road

Jetty Road, comprised of twin sisters, Lee and Paula Bowman, together with Julian Sammut, are one of Australia’s most enduring and respected musical acts. Their music blend of country, pop and rock focuses on powerful melodies with wonderfully crafted three-part harmonies – think The Dixie Chicks, The Corrs and Fleetwood Mac, with an Australian edge.

They have taken their music to the global stage with multiple world tours and played main stage arenas. They are #1 ARIA Australian Country Artists, with 6 albums, more than 15 chart-topping releases, two CMAA Golden Guitar Awards, multiple finalist berths in the International Song Writing Competition (ISRC) and countless award nominations to their name.

Their latest single, Here We Go is the first single, lifted from their next studio album. Landing at #1 on the iTunes Country Songs chart, Here We Go is an upbeat country pop track, and was co-written by the Bowman sisters with Aussie expat and Nashville based songwriter, Phil Barton. 

We caught up with Jetty Road to find out what songs they’re listening to for this week’s Front Deck Boom Box.


Paula: 

Keith Urban – Wild Hearts

Keith Urban always releases great songs and Wild Hearts is no exception, sitting at the very top of my playlist right now. The beat, the guitar, the melodies are so good, but it’s the lyrics of this song that are such a huge draw for me.  He speaks to the heart of so many ‘dreamers’ and ‘drifters’ out there, who are willing to put themselves on the line to strive for a dream. As a creative, I can’t help but see myself in this song and love its positivity.

Bo’ness – Light Up The Airwaves

I first heard this song on the day of release and was instantly hooked. Callum and Jackson (Bo’ness) co-wrote the track with Chris Cheney from The Living End.  Visions of the golden era in Australian 80’s & 90’s music come to mind when hearing it, reminding me of summer, when there were no rules! It’s a killer melody and together with their harmonies, I can’t stop playing it.


Lee: 

Brooke McClymont & Adam Eckersley – Roll On Baby

This song by husband-and-wife duo Brooke McClymont and Adam Eckersley is so catchy! As soon as I heard the chorus I couldn’t stop singing and dancing to it!  Love the claps, love the hooks and they sound so good together. Everything they do, they sing from the heart. I feel like that’s what Jules and I will be doing when we’re old and grey.


The McClymonts – Don’t Wish It All Away

I’ve always loved The McClymonts songs and their harmonies. Even though this was released a few years ago, it still gets featured on my playlist. Don’t Wish It All Away is a song about motherhood and your babies growing up. It gets me emotional every time I hear it. Being a mum to twins, the lyrics in this song are so true. I feel like they’re singing my story. And that’s what a great song does.


Jules:

Troy Cassar Daley & Ian Moss – South

Troy Cassar Daley and Ian Moss are both two of my favourite musicians and this song is on constant rotation on my playlist. The calibre of songwriting and musicianship is right up my alley. They’re amazing singers as well as being red hot guitarists and having them together in this song is a perfect collaboration for me. I love how they jam out at the end. 


Shane Nicholson – Harvest On Vinyl

Shane Nicholson is a great songwriter, storyteller, and producer. The song talks about buying the Harvest album when he was young. Years later he does the “sensible” thing of getting rid of his vinyl collection to make room for the kids. The quirk in the song is so good, as is the production, the feel and the multitude of hooks.
