When: Saturday April 21, 2001

YOUNG, vibrant, cute and above all talented, Raebekah Roycroft has a lot going for her.

Roycroft has supported the likes of Lee Kernaghan, Foster and Allen, Jean Stafford and The Crosby Sisters in the past, as well as working extensively in Queensland and Tasmania.

She has a pure, powerful and emotional style which appeals to the whole gamut of country audiences, from traditional country enthusiasts to fans of contemporary and crossover country.

Roycroft is among the faces of 21st Century country music.

The daughter of Golden Guitar winning singer-songwriter Michael Roycroft, she has claimed no less than two top 10 singles in the national Country Music charts from her debut self-titled EP and is on the verge of greater industry appreciation.

Her successes to date have included the 2000 TIARA for best country duo, female vocalist of the year at the 2000 Victorian Country Music Awards and most recently she won the 2001 TIARA for best female vocalist.

She will perform alongside another young star Adam Harvey at Club Phoenix on Saturday, April 21.

Harvey has won the Golden Guitar for best vocal collaboration twice, in 1998 and 2001, and recently recorded the song Rockin' The Country with Brian Cadd. The most recent gong was won with friends Darren Coggan, Beccy Cole and Felicity. He also won male vocalist of the year in 1999 at the Victorian Country Music Awards. His debut album Sugar Talk was produced by Joe Camilleri of The Black Sorrows. See www.raebekahroycroft.com
