The Performers

Lindsay Waddington is the owner and producer of Kross Kut Records, one of the leading country music recording studios in Queensland. He resides on the Gold Coast and has been 6 times named Queensland Musician Of The Year.

An exceptional lead guitarist, Waddo heads the Lindsay Waddington Showband, and in 2007 he became Melissa's musical director.

A stand-out performer in his own right, Waddo has expanded his performances to include a vocal repertoire, as well as the familiar touch of comedy interspersed with his trade-mark guitar playing.

Bob Easter is a prolific balladeer who was born and bred in the Hunter Valley area of NSW. With several albums to his credit, he holds the distinction of being Drover Music's inaugural recording artist.

Along with Melissa and label co-artist Graham Rodger, in 2003 Bob was a major contributor to the popular duets album Drovin' All Over.

Legend of country music Lindsay Butler is quoted as having stated "Bob's country is pure bush ballad and no one does the songs of Slim, Coster, Lawson and Co better than he."

Lloyd Back is a singer/songwriter from Kingaroy, a rural area of Queensland that has become a hub for Australian country music.

Lloyd's songs draw on both his own and other people's life experiences. He writes songs that move people - to tap their toes , to enter into the story, to laugh and sometimes to cry.

An easy listening performer, Lloyd's songs connect with a wide range of people from many differing walks of life.

Neil Buttsworth hails from the NSW coastal town of Port Macquarie, and he has twice been a nominee for Male Vocalist Of the Year in the NSW Gold Medallion Awards.

Bass player for the Lindsay Waddington Showband as well as a favourite performer in his own right, Neil has spent over 30 years in the industry performing with many of Australian Country's greats. He has been likened by his peers to a fine bottle of wine, he just keeps getting better as every year passes.

The songs Neil performs are wide and varied, but his signature series are those from American legend Buck Owens, performed in Neil's own unique style.

Brett Fenech, drummer for the Lindsay Waddington Showband, also hails from the Port Macquarie region of NSW.

In his early career Brett spent a lot of time drumming in a rock band, but in later years he found his passion lay in the more relaxed environment of country music.

An absolute pleasure to listen to, Brett's drumming complements the performers, rather than competing with them as may sometimes otherwise happen.

Grant Hart lives in Perth, having been raised on the land in rural Western Australia; and he is the Keyboard player for the Lindsay Waddington Showband.

Adept also with Piano, Saxophone, Harp (harmonica) and both Lead and Rhythm Guitars; Grant embodies the true definition of a multi-instrumentalist.

If you can hear a Grand Piano or the woodwind section of an orchestra, a soft cello or a collection of violins; look towards Grant and you'll see his hands moving respondently across his keyboard.
