Welcome to the Ealey&Tyers (aka Dixie Chooks) website!

We've built this here site to assist you in finding it absolutely irresistible to engage us to play at your concert, wedding, corporate event, festival, conference, 10th, 20th, 30th ...70th anniversary even. You name it really, we'll very likely play at it! If it is a verrrrrry special occasion - a surprise birthday even - we can tailor a song specially to fit.

Have a browse around the site for information about us as a duo, solo performers, songwriters and also happy and proud members of the Unsung Heroes of Australian History project. Visit the music page to listen to a few examples of what we do or enjoy some 'rough live chortles' on this apge. Download comely photographs of us for your programs and promo material from our Media things page. Have a gander at the YouTubes on this page of the site.

The Dixie Chooks' new album 'Layers' is close to completion and we are really excited. Stephen Blackburn has done a tremendous job herding these two chooks and giving us our head. Thanks also to Ken Nicol for the final mastering. It's been a stunningly rewarding experience and we are pretty happy with the outcome so far. Thanks to Nick Sevenis for popping some verrrrry nice bass on a couple of tracks. Bit of artwork to complete and then it'll be time to launch!

NEWS!

The Unsung Heroes project received a community grant to present a new show to mark the Anzac Centennial to selected schools in the seat of Batman. So a new show, new songs and images and a new adventure for us all. It has inspired a new show for our general audiences also and we have been taking it to libraries, festivals and venues around the country. It has been very well received and a moving experience for all involved.
