Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.

Dustin Tebbutt

“The Breach” from Australian singer-songwriter Dustin Tebbutt is a significant cut above the folky norm. Full of melancholic grace and gorgeous atmospheric trills, you can definitely hear a Scandinavian inflection to the sound, thanks to a two year sojourn in Sweden.


Salt Lake City duo Spencer J Harrison and Libbie Linton are enjoying a big round of applause at present thanks to their “Way With Words” EP. Breezy indie pop gems full of cinematic pomp and smart, wordy introspection is what’s on the menu here.

Alana Henderson

Belfast-based and Tyrone-born singer-songwriter and cellist whose “Wax and Wane” debut EP from last year was a beautifully pitched mix of folk, classical, blues and introspective ambience. She has just released her debut album “Windfall”, a collection of reworked Northern Irish traditional songs.
