TIM Stokes is the next quality act to appear at the Royal Mail in Goodna with his Friday night gig sure to be a hit for those who like upbeat rock injected with folk, roots and country.

Stokes is well known for his live act with sets that have been described as "ebbing and flowing from downright dance to burning ballads and back."

Well known for his live gigs in the Byron Bay region where he lives, Stokes has also featured at Massive Sounds Festival (Brisbane), Viva La Vida (Batemans Bay) and the Mullum Music Festival.

He has toured widely over the past five years and his album MeXico received positive reviews. Some serious topics are touched on lyrically but over all it is laid back summery with an uplifting vibe.

For those who haven't heard much of Stokes, his work has been described as "sitting comfortably between Paul Kelly, Jack Johnson and John Butler Trio".

A review of MeXico in Reverb Magazine made the point that "Stokes and his band never let their accomplished instrumental chops interfere with the structure or flow of feel-good tunes".

Stokes hits the right notes with a passionate.

The Royal Mail is at 90 Brisbane Terrace, Goodna.
