If you haven't yet heard of The Texettes, you soon will! The Texettes are essentially Terry Bradford and Helen Ellis. Their passion is their original music - they love what they do and it shows! October 17th sees them release their 6th album, "All Thru The Night" - 10 new original tracks recorded at Sodypop Studios in Adelaide, South Australia. Lyrically, vocally and instrumentally very sound, this album has been described as their "best ever"
For 11 years now Helen and Terry have been sprouting their original rootsy contemporary songs around Adelaide and country SA, picking up awards at Country Music talent quests for songwriting and performance as an original music duo. In January 2011, Helen and Terry made the decision to expand the band and focus on more opportunities for live performance and to do that, they hadd to "grow legs" –the addition of Bass, Keyboard, Drums and Lead Guitar has added another dimension to the Texettes live performance and the response from audiences has been very positive.
Community radio stations around Australia were introduced to The Texettes in 2006 following the release of the "Fearless" album, followed by, “Lost in Blue” in 2007 and “The Lady & The Tramp” and “You Can’t Do That” in 2009. Late 2010, they released a single to radio, "By a Living Thing", a track from their 2010 release "A Surefire Cure" , which received plenty of attention from a wide sector of country music presenters in each state, Netherlands and New Zealand. Into it's 2nd week of release, the song rated highly on the "Most ordered for Air" Charts and 2nd on "Most ordered for Air Country Charts" and continued to do so for around 5 weeks (Distributed via AMRAP'S AirIt service in Sept 2010).
