Celebrating All  Country Music


At Country All Over, it is our passion to share and support new music. This month we're proud to Showcase the debut album from Mark Lavender and Kathryn Coad - "Running From The Rain".

Both having grown up in musical families, Country Music has been in their veins
from a very young age. No stranger to the stage, Mark and Kathryn both
competed extensively in Country Music Festivals throughout Queensland for
many years, which lead them both to playing weekly gigs in their family shows.
Kathryn’s smooth and powerful voice with Mark’s country rock touch
and vocals, brings to the stage a dynamic harmony in their songs, with a sense of quirkiness and humour. Jumping from instrument to instrument, they both
showcase their versatility while showing their flare for singing and song writing.

Mark’s single in 2012 “Waiting for the water to come down” charted at number
67 on the Australian Top 100 iTunes Chart, along side Keith Urban at 67 and Rascal Flats at 68. Written, capturing the devastation of the Bundaberg Floods, all profits and proceeds of the song Mark donated to the Bundaberg flood appeal which went back into the local community.  Recently spending some time in Nashville TN, Mark and Kathryn had the privilege of playing with Country Music Top Guitarist / Session Player Brent Mason, leading to a recording session at CTM Studios with Nashville’s finest musicians. While spending time in Nashville they performed in one of the top venues in Nashville - Tootsies, alongside some of the best pickers in Nashville.

Currently, Mark and Kathryn have just finished up in the studio recording their first duo album containing all original songs from ballads, country rock and bluegrass. Musical accompaniments on the album you’ll see, Mark and Kathryn have played a big part, along with Nashville session guitarist Brent Mason and Australian Fiddler David Lee. They are very excited about the release of their new album “Running from the Rain” and are looking forward to launching it to everyone.

Their love and passion for music and ability to the entertain an audience shows in their performance, with an exciting and engaging showcase of musician ship and wealth of talent.
