Australian country/blues singer Cash Savage, and her band The Last Drinks, just released their sophomore album The Hypnotiser in early August, via MGM (note: not the movie company).
Tristen Harris, of RRR, described Savage as "Big, bold, honest and full of the kind of heartbreak and vitriol that makes grown men weep, hers is a voice that cannot be described, only experienced."
You can 'experience' it yourself with a the radio edit of the title track "Hypnotiser" at Soundcloud.
The band just wrapped up their tour in support of Hypnotiser.
