Gareth Leach & The Davidson Brothers Release Big Ole Feelings on RTC Records.
Big Ole Feelings is the new single from the collaboration between country/outlaw artist and producer, Gareth Leach and Golden Guitar slinging duo, Davidson Brothers. The track is available nowthrough indie country label, RTC Records, with the official music video now also available to view on YouTube.
Shot, edited and directed by Gareth’s wife, Jade Robinson, in Sedgwick, Victoria, the video clip was filmed on location in a wide open space to match the theme of the lyrics. Just like bluegrass, the clip is in essence, seemingly simple, yet full of nuance and beauty, the music and stunning footage doing all the talking.
Big Ole Feelings is a heartfelt, authentically optimistic bluegrass song (written by Gareth) about wanting to teach his young children about mindfulness, reminding us all that we have the ability to turn our powerful emotions into superpowers, if we can learn to recognise and harness them.
The track features Gareth Leach, Lachlan Davidson and Hamish Davidson on vocals, with Leach on guitar, Lachlan on mandolin, and Hamish on banjo, with Isaac Barter on double bass and Shane McGrath on lead guitar.

About Gareth Leach:
Gareth’s catalogue includes Settle Likes Stones (2016, EP), Death & Taxes (2018, album), and Trigger (2020, album), with his third full-length album slated for release in 2023.
In other words, Gareth writes, performs and delivers country music with attitude. But don’t think for a moment that Gareth hasn’t absorbed the nuances, emotion and craft of the very finest in country music. As record producer/engineer with diverse tastes and influences, Gareth has also collaborated with musicians from the rock, country, folk, punk and pop industries to further refine and realise the ideas of the songwriter.
Raised on the muddy banks of Echuca’s Murray River, Gareth Leach draws inspiration from the introspective and reflective lyrical concepts of his outlaw heroes, tinged with guitar-riff driven hooks that have remained in his blood since he was a young kid growing up with a background in punk-rock.
