Post-Tour Announcement, Joe Mungovan Shines The Light On His Favourite Aussie Acts

We caught up with NSW South Coast singer/songwriter Joe Mungovan post-tour announcement to see what local music he’s been loving lately.

A talented purveyor of laidback indie vibes, Joe has just announced he’s taking his music to the road down Australia’s East Coast in February, March and April. This tour will be the first time fans are seeing his self-produced debut album ‘A Flower In The Weeds’ played with a full live band since its November release. To get a better idea of the inspirations Joe draws on to create his delightfully mellow tracks, he’s put together a shortlist of his favourite local artists at the moment.

Read below to check out Joe’s current favourite Australian acts and why:

Gabriella Cohen

Gabriella’s new album ‘Blue No More’ is a colourful and vibrant album and I love it. ‘I Just Got So High’ and ‘But I Wanted To’ are the standout tracks for me.

D.D Dumbo

‘Utopia Defeated’ remains one of my favourite Australian albums. Where the sophomore at? 

Ruby Gill

Ruby’s songwriting is incredible and I’m stinging to hear more from this incredible artist. Incredible. 

William Crighton

He has just released a great new EP and has a great new album on the way (I’m sure of it). I can’t wait. Great. 

Haitus Kaiyote

Forward-thinking and unbelievably interesting music.

Braille Face

His debut album ‘Original Cast Recordings’ blew my mind and has been on a high rotation ever since.
