The Melbourne Americana Music Sampler 2017!


If you are a delegate at the Americana Music Festival & Conference you would have received our fantastic 20-track Melbourne Americana Sampler 2017, courtesy of the City of Melbourne and Addicted To Noise. You might have also picked one up at Grimey’s (our favourite record store in Nashville) or one of the Aussie BBQs or gigs. 

We reckon we have curated some of the best Americana-style music of this year so far from Melbourne (Australia’s music capital). 

To access the music simply enter your exclusive code at the dropcards site shown on the back of the card and download the 20 tracks. If you have an iPhone or iPad or Mac you can add the tracks to your iTunes library and access them there. If you have an Android device you can download direct.
