Maple Glider – the moniker of Melbourne resident Tori Zietsch – has a voice and delivery that is like someone whispering softly in your ear: it’s close and warm and very personal.

It is difficult to express what a profound and integral influence singer/songwriter Ron S. Peno has had on the Australian independent music scene.
