Watling & Bates – Coolatai Waltz (MP3)
‘Coolatai Waltz’ was written for a very real wedding in a small country church in the town of Coolatai, NSW. The song weaves the story of the happy couple’s romance through the town’s history and legends, with mentions of the Wallaroo Pub, the Coolatai Vintage Tractor Pull and the mysterious Coolatai Panther.
A whimsical country waltz with fiddle, banjo, and guitar, it features guest artists Scott French on drums and Christopher Ridgway, (ex-Texas Qld, now Amesville Ohio USA) on mandolin.
‘Coolatai Waltz’ was written by Kym Watling & Geoffrey Bates, produced by Watling & Bates, mixed and engineered by Scott French of Lovestreet Studios and mastered by Paul Blakey of 12th & Vine Post. Cover artwork was produced with the AI image generator Craiyon.
