“Kimber & The Rollin’ Wheel on stage are a sight indeed, a joyous celebration almost, fluid and tight and yet also loose and free. It’s country music, but not quite. It’s infused with soul and there are elements of pop in there too, but mostly it’s real Australian music telling real Australian stories and that’s what makes it so good. Samuel J.
