    Patreon launch!!


    Patreon is an amazing new platform that connects creators with their people in a very special way. As musos on the road with three kids our greatest challenge is creating the time to create! We're really excited to be launching our patreon page and hope this experiment will enable us to create a whole lot more for you! What type of Patron will you be? All about the music? The music and the adventure? or will you be a magic weaver?

    Paradise is Just Around the Corner. Alan and Dave Mann.

Performed and recorded by Dave Mann and also features Bec Schofield, Scott and Rowena Wise, David Rastric, Wil Thomas, Ray Mann and Ruth Mann.

    Bec Schofield - Love Country
    This is a sweet little thing! One of my favourite albums i've recorded (along with our new one!) Bec writes such beautiful lullabies and the softness of her voice is melting. I'm am quite biased however. I hope you like it as much as I do!
    ...Dave Mann

    Everywhere at Once - Dave Mann
    Dave Mann and his band recorded this rockin folk/roots album in 2010. Featuring Dave's signature open tuning slide guitar, soulful and powerful voice - monster bass player Roy Martinez and animalistic Angus Diggs on the skins...

    Dave Mann & Bec Schofield

    THE NOMADICS - Bec Schofield and Dave Mann (and their three children)


    “I’ve had the privilege of singing and harmonising with Bec on a couple of occasions and each time it’s been a very magical part of the evening. She carries the full force of the earth and motherhood within her... a beautiful singer and songwriter with an authentically Australian voice.” Missy Higgins


    "The Nomadics are a dream of the future cast from a bygone era, simplicity and innocence weaved with heart and longing. Bec and Dave write songs that feel as though they may have risen from the expansive landscapes they traverse across, begging to be sung, only by those willing to listen and deliver them with undiluted presence and clarity. I can’t get through a set of theirs without clutching at my heart, tears in my eyes, and hope in my blood”

    Mama Kin


    "Super stoked, honoured and excited to be hosting the one-of-a-kind Dave Mann and Bec Schofield from The Nomadics performing live at Froth.

    The tangible chemistry on stage, skilful guitar and evocative melodies between these two extremely talented musicians should be considered a national treasure and we're wrapped to be treated to what has now become an annual epic night of campfire music for the soul". Pete Firth




    "The Nomadics imbibe stories from the heart of Australia, then sing them out with a deep love for the world around them and each other . Their stunning harmonies drew me in, reminding me, what a beautiful thing is music". Vikki Thorn The WAIFS



    Lie back, close your eyes and transport yourself to remote Australia. Picture the red red dirt, white-blond grass and turquoise sea.. You’re lying in the shade of a gum tree and you can feel the heartbeat of this ancient land.

    Then in the distance you hear another rumbling, something deep, something heavy and you look towards the sound. Emerging from the haze comes a big blue truck; as it approaches you can see the legendary Dave Mann and his talented wife Bec Schofield beside him – dotted about them in some form or other are three tousle-headed children – its The Nomadics rolling in...

    Dave and Bec met a decade ago in the Northern Territory and from this potent alchemy have been creating together ever since. They sing songs of Country, of love, of life and history – of the things that they know and stories of events and times long gone. Their music is deceptively simple, incredibly approachable and deliciously personal. Their harmonies are so perfect it almost hurts; both are blessed with incredibly rich and soulful voices which meld seamlessly. Their music is good medicine for the soul: rich and nourishing, a cool drink on a hot day.


    As they share their lives so they share the artistic process. Co-writing, arranging, producing and performing together as they traverse this great land in the big blue veggie oil powered house truck they built themselves. The gigs, festivals, residencies and projects The Nomadics play often take them to very remote areas so as they travel they home-school the kids and hunt for veggie oil – the liquid gold that keeps them on the road. Their adventures provide ample material for their songs and a rather different big blue – the ocean – is now firmly in their sights.


    The Nomadics are at home on the big stage having shared it with many Aussie icons like The Waifs and Missy Higgins however their greatest love is to play small, intimate house concerts, preferably through a single mic. Vocal harmonies, banjo, slide and open-tunings come together to create their unique form of soul country music with its roots in folk blues. Between them they have a stack of releases and they recently released their first album together: “Love is a Flood”, the title track being inspired by the birth of their twins.


    The Nomadics were certainly a favourite at Fairbridge Festival this year and now, after a bunch of sold out shows touring the east coast and SW coast of Australia, they have saddled up for their Northern WA tour.


    Gratitude for this life shines through everything they do – and it ignites a campfire in the heart. Listening to The Nomadics might make you weep but they are healing tears – tears that soothe and renew - and the sheer beauty of their music is a reward in itself.
