Welcome to cloudstreet

cloudstreet "...belong in that special pantheon of exceptional Australian musicians and songwriters, and yet they go beyond Oz to be world class"
(Sing Out)

Bringing fresh life to the best of the tradition, Nicole Murray, John Thompson and Emma Nixon have carved themselves a niche internationally as outstanding performers of acoustic folk music. With vocal harmonies reminiscent of Steeleye Span and the Seekers, powerful arrangements of Australian classics and a repertoire that spans the Anglo-Celtic world, cloudstreet's exciting performances entertain and delight. They deliver a powerful and moving musical experience, based on entrancing musicality, stunning use of vocal harmony and above all, a compelling sense of fun.

After two years of performing on stages around Australia, cloudstreet took up full-time performance in 2003 and embarked on their first UK tour. The early days of that trip saw John and Nic perform on every stage that would have them, popping at folk club open mics and floor-spots across the country. They quickly developed a reputation for spot-on harmonies and an engaging stage-presence.

8 albums, 9 international tours and an enthusiastic following around the globe, cloudstreet will sing and play their way into your heart.

Come and fly the cloudstreet!


Our 2010 album, The Circus of Desires, was described by Rich Warren of The Midnight Special as "absolutely superb". Have a listen to these snippets and see what you think:
