CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

8 Ball Aitken’s New Single ‘I’M GOING TO JAIL’ Enters Charts… ‘SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE’ Album Released In Time For Christmas

All I want for Christmas… is for my fans, stalkers, groupies, cousins (including everyone with red-hair from Australia), pets, intelligent indoor house-plants, and Santa Claus to request my new music video ‘I’M GOING TO JAIL’ on CMC (Country Music Channel Australia). Please spare me 30 seconds and do it now. I need your help and I appreciate your support. You need to log in to CMC online with this link…

GOOD NEWS:  My new single ‘I’M GOING TO JAIL’ has entered the Australian Country Tracks Top 30 at number 28 this week. Whoo hoo! Thank you DJs. Please keep spinning it and boost it upwards. I need the bail money to get out of jail for Christmas! Otherwise I will have to climp up the chimney and break out. Ha ha!!!

MORE GOOD NEWS:  8 Ball’s new album ‘SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE’ has been officially released. 8 Ball will be playing some special launch shows in Tamworth. There is still time to get a signed copy under your tree. If you want one, simply respond to this email, visit or for digital, follow the iTunes link

THANKS: We would like to especially thank all the folks who came to see 8 Ball Aitken playing live throughout 2013. Next year, we plan to do it all bigger, better and wilder. Thank you for joining us on this musical journey. May your Christmas be wonderful and 2014 be your best trip around the sun so far.
