New Single Release For Rockin' Marty Worrall

Who: Marty Worrall
Where: Tighes Hill Social Club
When: Saturday September 24, 2005

YOUNG Novocastrian Wilson Tweed was visibly upset when his favourite Australian Idol contestant Marty Worrall was eliminated from the competition last year.

In fact, Wilson's reaction to Worrall's departure was so heart-felt that he was featured on the program Inside Idol. His parents, Phil and Jodi Tweed, took notice and decided Worrall's talent should not go unrecognised.

They approached him to sign with their independent Newcastle-based label Style Music. ``We saw first-hand how Marty's performances could move people and we knew that we had to do our part in developing his career beyond Australian Idol to the heights that it deserves,'' Jodi Tweed said.

Now Worrall has formed a strong friendship not only with Jodi and Phil Tweed but the entire Tweed family.

Phil Tweed is no stranger to Newcastle audiences.

He has been a constant on the Hunter's live music scene for years now.

But his association with Worrall marks the beginning of a new chapter.

Tweed has been behind Worrall all the way since signing him and is now gearing up for the national release of Worrall's new single.

Labelled the ``bald, rock guy'' by Australian Idol audiences, Worrall gave it his best shot in 2004 and finished sixth in the competition.

One Day is the title of Worrall's debut single and will be launched at the Tighes Hill Social Club on Saturday night.

For the past 12 months Worrall has been focusing on songwriting and recording, collaborating with some of Australia's most talented musicians.

With the production of the single, the design of the artwork and the shooting of the video all done in the Hunter, the local flavour of the release is something that Tweed said the region could be proud of.

Worrall will appear as a special guest when Tweed and his group Aban'n Phil perform at the Tighes Hill Social Club on Saturday from 8pm.

Tickets to Saturday's gig cost $10 at the door.
