“Two Tears in a Bucket” is the musical collaboration of Nathan “Slyde” Petersen and Michelle Fitness. From the moment Nathan and Michelle met on stage at a local jam they knew they had something special together. Over the last three years they have played and toured from Northern Queensland to Central Victoria, always evolving and strengthening their musical partnership, adding new original songs and instruments and exploring all aspects of blues and roots. In 2017 they recorded their "Debut EP" at Old Dog Studios in Corndale, NSW with Al Pegg engineering and midwifing the songs. In 2019 they are planning to do an Australia wide tour, taking the time to also write a new album. Nathan Petersen is a journeyman songwriter. His street kid punk roots blend with his respect and understanding of traditional blues and roots, add to this an astounding talent for the slide guitar and a growing talent for many other stringed instruments and you have the makings of an upcoming great Australian street poet / songsmith……Nathan sings and writes about what he knows best….surviving on the edge and having a damn fine time doing it Michelle Fitness is a songbird who can get inside the lyrics to bring out an interpretation straight from her own soul…..from gutsy to fragile, Michelle can conjure the full range of human emotion with a mighty vocal talent. “I love singing Nathans songs and the traditional songs we have chosen….they have an authenticity to them, a true mirror of the archetypal human soul, from ballsy to broken”.
