Our music wants to make me – Tap Those Toes
Brisbane-based six-piece band theBlueShamrocks have a traditional-sounding country music element which combines elements of jive, waltz and linedance country music.
Following on from their debut album TTT-Tap Those Toes in 2017, theBlueShamrocks new original series of singles was released in September 2020 from an album NTSH Nothing To See Here, with powerful emotionally charged melodies and a seductively joyous classic feel.
Exploring various themes, where with a dreamy thought could relate to any part of daily life, the tunes are sprinkled with fun, optimism and storyline generosity, tracks that are sure to attract many discerning music lovers across the globe.
Produced by Brisbane producer James North, the songs with unmistakeable universal appeal, are uplifting with a form of a wholesome shot of yesteryear that feels quite charming and robust when set against today’s climate of unknowns.

theBlueShamrocks band members backgrounds range from genres of various music styles inclusive off country, rock, orchestral and jazz music scenes.
In January 2021, theBlueShamrocks released their 2nd original single Gypsy Time, a country music track with mythical connotations that combines the art of a fun jive style country beat. The new song is taken from their forthcoming album NTSH – Nothin’ To See Here which is due out soon and follows on from their 2017 album – TTT Tap Those Toes.
Gypsy Time is essentially a mythical song based on a dream time, that explores self-imaginative dreamy themes of song and dance. As the band have said about the subject matter of the song: “The lyrics were written with the thought of people who have an imaginative vision within the realm of time and space with thoughts and vision, within one’s own time of self-relaxation”.
Within the song’s lyrics, the track offers a buoyant and joyous celebration, of music and dance, which leads to excellent musicianship from the various skilled musicians who deliver the vibrance to this excellent tune. Lead vocalist Sam McCaughey sounds as if he means every word, and that infuses the music with a wistful, spirited edge.
