Following the release of his two latest singles, I Really Like Holding Your Hand and Cool late last month, Melbourne singer-songwriter Brad Ellis aka The Hunter Express will launch the tracks at a hometown show this week. 

The indie-roots artist will take to the stage at Newmarket Studios in North Melbourne this Thursday (19 October), where he will be joined by burgeoning acts Jess De Luca and Lauren O'Meara.

The gig at Newmarket Studios will be a homecoming of sorts for Ellis, given that both tracks were recorded at the venue. 

"I came into this project with more of an open mind and allowed creativity to always try to be the focus," Ellis said.

"This time I felt like I had more time to try new ideas, never really afraid to scrap an idea and try something new."

Listen to the singles below.
