A blend of music icons such as The Beatles, Ray Davies, Ron Sexsmith, Neil Young & Neil Finn, Melbourne late bloomer DC Cardwell has only recently begun to make his mark in the music world. A "triple threat" singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he sealed his credentials by taking out TWO of the top prizes at the Australian Catapult Song Contest in 2011.

The success of DC's album also paved the way for other opportunities abroad. In 2010 noted Hollywood music supervisor/film composer Jaymee Carpenter (The Fighter, Crime After Crime) heard one of his songs (Birthday Present) on a Youtube video and immediately invite DC to L.A. to record six of his songs for use in his film projects. Jaymee's reaction to DC's music is worth noting, and is quoted here with permission:

"I am seriously blown away by your album. I think it may be the greatest thing I've heard in years! I don't want to freak you out, but I'm drooling over here. You just easily became my favorite 'new' artist!"

Latest News

DC recently produced an album by his wife, Marjorie Cardwell, which was prompted by her diagnosis of a brain tumour. Happily, it was benign, the surgery was a success, and they were proud to release "In Another World" in August 2012.

Kiwi legend Don McGlashan plays on this eclectic collection of Marjorie's own guitar-driven, Beatlesque yet indie-spirited songs, outstanding vocals and melodic gift, and a skilfully soulful, retro production by herself and DC.

Thanks for your very qualitative and thought provoking review of my song: BABY YOU GIVE ME LOVE. I'm just the lyricist. I thought the lyrics in the chorus were compelling but since I'm just the lyricist, I didn't understand all of your comments about the music. But it's obvious you know an awful lot about music. Thanks so much.

No worries - I really enjoyed that song! Was it written by Krista? Does she have a website of her own?

No it was written by both of us. And no she does not have a website other than through me. But if you have a message I will be more than happy to relay it to her.

You're welcome! I enjoyed your song very much and it was actually nice to hear an "album track" which didn't sound like it was trying to be a pop hit. I don't think I mentioned but it reminded me a little of Pink Floyd's acoustic based songs.
