Bio

West Australian alt-country/rock singer-songwriter ​Siobhan Cotchin​ catapulted into 2020 and she's already got 2021 under her spell too. Siobhan quickly became one of Australia's favourite new artists, winning over hearts with her debut single ​‘​Tear Myself Apart’​ which exploded nationally. It was swiftly followed by a trifecta of much talked about tracks ​‘​Do You Know What I Mean?​’, ‘​Just The Way It Is​’ and her latest release ‘​The Fair-Weather Friend Blues​’.

You’ll be forgiven for thinking Siobhan is well beyond her 20-years of age. Honest, raw and real — Siobhan Cotchin has proven herself to be a talented songwriter. Able to simply decode complex human relationships, she gets listeners right in their feels. Her live sets have quickly gained momentum, supporting Robert Forster (Go-Betweens), Spacey Jane, Carla Geneve, Katy Steele, Abbe May and The Kill Devil Hills.

With a writing style that echoes the effortless musing of Lucinda Williams, laced with inspiration drawn from Bob Dylan, Siobhan’s jangly luminous melodies hover over storytelling lyrics as she effortlessly pulls the listener into a world of introspective self-discovery. A world that’s all her own.

Every one of her releases has been played on national radio — on repeat. In 2020, Cotchin had multiple singles sitting in the Triple J Charts for a number of weeks which has earnt her serious accolades from some of the music industry’s heavy hitters. In what seems like lightning speed, Siobhan Cotchin has made her mark on the Australian music scene.

Her heart-hitting writing has already resulted in many wins including Fairbridge & Nannup Music Festival Emerging Artist Award, Triple J Unearthed Top 10 best discoveries of 2020 and song of the year with local youth radio station 'Pirate FM'. Plus West Australian Music Assoc. (WAM) Song of the Year nominee, West Australian Music Assoc. (WAM) nominee for ​Best Country Act, Best Blues / Roots Act and Most Popular New Act 2021​.

Siobhan is putting the flakes and fakes on blast with this twanging heart-acher that feels like a slow twist of the knife.

that is a chorus that's just built to be belted. whether in your bedroom or in a sold-out Siobhan Cotchin concert crowd, it doesn't matter. it's sure to hit hard every single time.
