Up-and-coming Australian stars Blake O’Connor and Sinead Burgess have debuted their newest song on The Ray Hadley Morning Show.

At just 20 years old, Blake has already been nominated for a Golden Guitar, while Sinead has an impressive list of accomplishments including touring with American folk-rock legend Don McLean, who mentored her.

“I was 17 and wide-eyed, learning as I went,” she told Ray Hadley.

“Honestly, he had all the time in the world for me: he called me into his dressing room just to sit down and talk about … what I had planned.

“It was just such a highlight for me.”

Due to popular demand, and the government’s Great Southern Nights COVID-safe gigs initiative, Blake and Sinead have added eight new shows to their tour across the state over the next few months.

In lieu of an in-studio sneak peek of the tour, the couple filmed themselves performing ‘Silver Linings’ at home for Ray’s listeners to enjoy.

According to Blake, the song is about “being in a dark place, and coming out the end of it … realising everything has a silver living.

“It’s quite a fitting song, during these times.”
