Melbourne singer-songwriter Ben Mastwyk has a distinctive swing to his country sound that makes his latest single, ‘This Country’, infectious, although the track apparently started life as a much less upbeat number. And while Mastwyk hails from Melbourne, which is home to a thriving Americana scene, his style takes as much from older-style country as its newer counterpart.
The single is from his upcoming album, the successor to his 2015 debut Mornin Evenin, and Mastwyk will soon be embarking on a tour to support his new music.
