With  his  album  “Wheels  and  Steel”  still  producing  hit  singles  he  has  a  very  busy  year ahead and will be touring right up till the Tamworth Country Music Festival 2015.

“There  is  no  better  way  to  showcase  new  songs  than  bringing  it  to  the  people” – Paul Costa.

While  Paul  has  been  hitting  the  road  around  Australia,  it’s  been  an  exciting  time  for Victoria  and  Barbara  Baillie  from  Baylou.  The super-talented sisters have been taking their talents and latest album “Go to Hell and I Love you” to the world. The duo has been to Nashville again this year to perform and work on their next album.
