Where: The Cambridge Hotel
When: Thursday September 1, 2005

IN late 2003, Newcastle band Cornstalk was formed with nothing but wooden acoustic guitars and a strong vocal front from singer-songwriter Chris Hammall.

Now, more than 18 months later, and Cornstalk has earned a strong following by playing to audiences across the Hunter region.

Cornstalk has evolved and had the opportunity to work alongside and learn from acts such as the Beautiful Girls, Afro Moses and Lisa Hunt.

For the past 10 months, Cornstalk has set its focus on making their debut self-titled EP which will be launched during a show at the Cambridge Hotel on Saturday night.

The EP was recroded and mixed at Mangus production by Justin Ngariki and Lee Rolfe, and mastered at Studio 301 in Syndey by Don Bartley.

Frotnman Hamall said that the diversity within their music should appeal toa wide variety of listeners with a mixture of blues, rock and contemporary pop.

He added that the independent group had been workign tirelessly toward this weekend's launch which will also incldue support from The Van Diemans Band and Ngariki.

Doors open at 8.30pm and tickets wil be available at the door.

Cornstalk is also set to perform an acoustic show in late October at the Great Northern Hotel before hitting the road on tour.
