Simply visit the website, and scroll down the chart to No. 23 for Without You, No. 71 for New Flame, and No. 73 for When I Found the Blues

Welcome to Luella’s Gigs, Goss & Gallery
Luella has spent the last few weeks performing in Emerald, Bundaberg, Gympie, Rainbow Beach and, of course, Brisbane.

She also helped her baby sister Courtney celebrate her 18th Birthday, and squeezed in some relaxation time at “Utopia”.
Here are some photos of Wella with her closest family and friends…

 
Singing for Nicole Kidman?
This week Luella is heading to Bowen, where she will be performing at the Grand View Hotel, right where the street has been transformed for the making of Nicole Kidman’s new movie. Hopefully some of the cast and crew will catch the show.

Country Art for Cancer
Various country music artists and associated media personalities have been invited to create and donate a painting or drawing expressing their own creative talent.

Finally, the art will be auctioned by a guest auctioneer or auctioneers and sold during the festival.

All proceeds raised will be donated to The Cancer Council NSW, to assist those that are affected by cancer.

Luella's Gigs, Goss, & Gallery for April 2007
Well, look what I found…

Yes, that’s me looking like Shirley Temple…

I was 12 and this was my very first ‘pub’ performance.
I sang two songs by a great Australian Writer John Kane - “Coalminer” and “Darlin’ Street”.
They were recorded by the Australian band “The Flying Emus”, whose music I absolutely loved.

I was quite terrified, but enjoyed every minute.

In fact, I played at that pub right up until this year…
The Walls Family, who owned the Collinsville Town and Country Hotel were amazing support for me.
They sponsored my first trip to Tamworth and gave me gigs at every opportunity.
They recently sold the hotel after 18 years. It was a very sad day!
I have many wonderful memories of playing at the Town and Country Hotel…
New Year’s Eves, Birthday Parties, and HUGE nights with my first band “Coolon Road”.
More Coolon Road band stories next time!

Singing in the Rain
I recently took the opportunity to go outside and enjoy a shower in the much needed 50mm rainfall…

Easter Sunday Session at Theebine Hotel
Despite me suffering the dreaded flu, it was a great Sunday session…

“Tonight” on CMC
The film clip of my song ”Tonight” is still playing on Foxtel’s Country Music Channel,
and you can request it by visiting the CMC website, clicking on requests, and typing in the name of the song.
The more it is played, the more people know about me.

Recording Update
Peter Cupples and Francesca De Valence are heading into the studio this week to do some harmony vocals for my new songs.
I’m VERY excited, and looking forward to getting them out there!

Welcome to Luella’s Gigs, Goss & Gallery
How wonderfully relaxing it was, spending special time with my loved ones! That’s what I’ve been doing over the past couple of weeks, in between a few gigs at Bowen and Hay Point. Here are some photos for you to enjoy: from the plane; Me with my niece and nephews; My wonderful manager, Pete, with his birthday present; and our family pet magpie who loves to eat cat food!!

In the next few days, I’ll get back into the studio again with producer Louie Shelton to finish off some vocal tracking. And, of course, also back on stage doing what I do best – it’s my absolute passion! Scroll down to see my upcoming gigs.

Feedback from Tamworth
Words cannot express how extremely grateful we are for all the incredible responses still pouring in with regards to our performances in Tamworth. They have been coming in on a daily basis, and are all pretty much like this one:
 
Dear Luella,
I can’t thank you or praise you enough. I had a fantastic 1st time in Tamworth this year and I must tell you that you are the best entertainer I have ever seen yet. I purchased your CD and have been lending it all around my small country town, so don’t be amazed when you get heaps of mail orders from my patrons wanting to purchase your CD.
Again thank you.
And here is a great photo of me with my band The Heelers, taken and kindly donated by BJ.

Thank you so much for your continued love and support – it really does make a huge difference knowing that you love what we do.
Let’s Help Save The Planet

Earth Hour is a fabulous opportunity for you and your family to do something about climate change. On one night, in one hour, more will be done, more will be demonstrated, and more will be learned than through a hundred 'talk-fests'. And you can help make it happen.

What is Earth Hour?
It sounds simple, but it is very, very dramatic. At 7.30pm on March 31st 2007, we will be encouraging companies, government departments, individuals and families to turn off their lights for just one hour. If we meet our objectives during the first Earth Hour, the savings in green house gas emissions will be the equivalent of taking 75,000 medium sized cars off the road for one whole year! Now that's something worth doing.

If you’d like to help, please visit http://www.earthhour.org  for more information.

Hi everyone,
Firstly THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE NEW MEMBERS OF THE MAILING LIST!! Most of which we performed for in Tamworth. This year was just so wonderful down there! The response was fantastic and my band were just such a pleasure to work with! I am so glad I was able to share the experience with you!

I am writing this email from the air! I am on the plane to Proserpine where I will meet my Daddy and we will head home to Collinsville. I am spending a week with my family and sooo looking forward to it, I have been extremely homesick and cant wait to get hugs from my loved ones. I haven't seen my MUMMY for a couple of months and I am missing her so much. We had a sadness in the family as my lil puppy who I have had since I was 15 passed away last week. So I am wanting some quality time with everyone up there.

Musically everything is wonderful, I have been recording again this week and I just so excited about the new songs! Louie Shelton is just such a wonderful producer and it is a really great match!

I am doing some gigs in north Queensland this week then heading back to Brisbane for some local shows there and to get myself back into GYM mode! since returning from Tamworth and sleeping for 2 days, I have had some timeout and need to get re energized!

For those who received my last letter I DIDN'T MISS THE PLANE THIS TIME! as much as I love Hamilton island I have no interest in taking 6 hours to get home this time, though we do regularly drive up here and it takes 16 hours from Brisbane! its a few picnics and billy teas up the road! HE HE HE!!

My manager Pete had a birthday last week also, his children, wife and I bought him a brand new Stihl Farmboss Chainsaw so he could get the firewood ready for winter out on our environmental reserve, it is just so peaceful out there and when it rains I tend to be running around in it, we need at least 6 inches to refill the dam as it is getting quite low, as they are in most parts of the country.

So that's about it for Wella world at the moment!

I am so so very grateful for your support in my LADDER CLIMB! We are working hard towards lifting my profile this year and getting some new music out there for you all!

I must sign off for now as we are descending! PLEASE DROP ME A LINE! I would love to hear from you!!

Love and Laughter LUELLA xoxoxox
 
Welcome to Luella’s Gigs, Goss & Gallery
What an amazing month was January… especially the 10 days of the Country Music Festival in Tamworth!!
 
Although totally exhausted, Luella is also totally re-energized.
Seems ironic, yet performing in front of appreciative and passionate crowds is something that truly makes her heart sing. It’s what she loves more than anything in the whole wide world. So, the more energy she pours into her performances, and the more receptive the crowds are, the greater joy Luella is rewarded with.

Something to do with the law of physics and energy exchange.
A huge THANK YOU to all of you wonderful folk who came along to one (or more) of the many gigs Luella and The Heelers played.
We hope you enjoy these photos – maybe you can see yourself in the crowd?

 
The BIG News
Luella is back in the studio with the infamous
Louie Shelton whose signature guitar riffs and solos have been heard on more hit records than any other session guitarist in history. While there are too many to mention, some of his classics include, Boz Scaggs' "Low Down", Lionel Richie's "Hello", Neil Diamond's "Play Me", The Jackson Five's "I Want You Back", "ABC" and "I'll Be There, The Monkees' "Last Train To Clarksville" and "Valerie". Some of the other artists Louie recorded with include John Lennon, Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, The Carpenters, Joe Cocker, Kenny Rodgers, The Mamas & Papas, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald and many others.



Not only did Louie play guitar on Seals & Crofts greatest hits, "Summer Breeze", "Diamond Girl", "We May Never Pass This Way Again" and "Get Closer", he produced their many Gold and Platinum albums. Some of Louie's other production credits include Art Garfunkle, England Dan & John Ford Coley, Dan Seals, Cory Wells (of Three Dog Night), Jane Oliver, The Southern Sons, Mother Hubbard and Nashville Guitars.



Now living on the Gold Coast, Louie has taken Luella under his wing and will soon be presenting her work to the big players of the Australian music market, with the intention of creating the hype and career path that this lady so richly deserves.
Here are some photos Luella and Pete in Louie’s recording studio…

Luella has had lots of fun over the last month especially at her mum’s birthday, where we took these photos of her singing with her God-daughter Jodi, and also of Luella together with her sisters, mum and grandma…
 
 

Christmas was also wonderful, with Luella and her dad spending 2 days in Toowoomba with her fabulous manager, Pete, and his family. Luella slept in her faithful swag, which was very conveniently right beside the Christmas tree and all the presents!! Besides all the great gifts that Santa brought - gold earrings, perfume, a little glory box, a Tamborine, some PJs, and accessories of course - Christmas Day was very laid back, with a few games of table tennis, some great food and movies. Yet, above all else, what Luella treasures most is the unconditional love from her family and friends.
 
 
New Years Eve was spent at a gig in Glenden, North Qld, with her whole family as well as fabulous manager, Pete, and his wife. All in all, Luella drove over 6000km in the last 2 weeks of December.
* * *
The Dynamic Month of January
With Tamworth not far away, Luella is now enjoying some time at home; resting up, working out at the gym, and drinking LOTS of green tea!

She will be taking her 5 piece band, The Heelers, to Tamworth and together they are guaranteed to rock the town!! No doubt they will all sleep for 3 days sleep when the Festival is over. Luella is particularly looking forward to catching up with ‘Brooksie’ and the staff at the Tamworth Services Club and of course Fiona and the crew at Wests.

 
Can you believe it’s December already??
Luella has been busy writing up her naughty and nice lists in preparation for Christmas. Having been a very good girl herself this year (well, that's what she tells us) she’s hoping that Santa won’t forget her either. In order to keep up her energy levels up, for those exceptionally dynamic performances, Luella has been spending lots of time in the gym and swimming many laps of the pool. She’ll soon be heading up to North Queensland for a few gigs – and her mum’s birthday - before focusing entirely on the upcoming Country Music Festival in Tamworth.

MusicOz Awards - Close but no cigar!!
Although totally stoked with being a Top 10 finalist in the
MusicOz Awards  with her song “When I Found the Blues”, Luella missed out on being in the Top 5. Yet she feels honoured to have gotten to the Top 10 on her first go, and is grateful for all the beautiful messages from those who believe in her.

Big Weekend for Luella at Mud Bulls & Music

Luella and her band The Heelers have just completed two very exciting shows at Mud Bulls & Music at Landcruiser National Park, Jimna in Southern Queensland.
As well as an appearance with James Blundell, Luella and The Heelers sang songs from her recently released self titled album together with some crowd favourites. Being an amazing vocalist, and an exceptional entertainer, Luella's vibrant yet down to earth nature yet again won the hearts of her audiences who danced and partied despite the rain.

The unique 4-day event blends traditional and contemporary competition, the Bull Ride, and 4 x 4 action events with music. Add the Ute Show and the camping experience in a beautiful isolated area, and the stage is set for 4 days of intense action, excitement and entertainment.

Having been a Top 10 finalist in the MusicOz Awards for "When I Found the Blues”, Luella is now focusing on the release of her second single. She is currently in pre-production of her new video clip with Brisbane based Jason Millhouse, of Millhouse Productions, and hopes to release both in the near future.
