DARREN HANLON BIO:
After a couple of years couch surfing, house sitting and soul searching across the world, Darren Hanlon (native of Queensland, Australia) has emerged with his fourth studio album, I Will Love You At All. Written in a variety of exotic locations from Paris to Coonabarabran, it seems travel has made Darren’s heart grow wistful, and the result is an album of gentle longing and reminiscence.
I Will Love You At All was recorded at Type Foundry in Portland, Oregon by Adam Selzer (M Ward, She & Him, The Decemberists). Featuring Rachel Blumberg (Bright Eyes, M Ward, She & Him, The Decemberists) on drums – along with three additional drummers – the record also features long time collaborator Cory Gray on keys. Reinforcing the album’s sweet nature are the twin female vocals of Shelley Short and Alia Farah.
Over the years, Darren has built a loyal fan base, selling in excess of 35,000 records. He has toured with Billy Bragg, Violent Femmes, and Evan Dando, and completed five tours at home and abroad with his friends The Magnetic Fields. Darren is also responsible for bringing Jeffrey Lewis, David Dondero and Jens Lekman to Australia for their first visits in support of his own sold out shows.

SHELLEY SHORT BIO:
Shelley Short has the sweetest of voices, we promise you will fall in love instantly!
A native of Portland, Oregon, songwriter and singer Shelley Short grew up among characters and artists in a wood-heated home full of books and records, listened to and read. As Short recounts: "It was like growing up in a time machine; in some ways we lived like in 1876, chopping wood, growing our own food, wearing old clothes in a Victorian home and singing our own songs. Other times it seemed like we were living in 1955, driving around Cadillacs and Studebakers and listening to Jonny Ray and The Flamingos. And yet it all felt like growing up in a blurring movie made in 1963, full of these big personalities. As a kid I grew up so accustomed to falling asleep to the sounds of all this."
