Ballarat based group “The Drifting Boats” gained the most airplay over the winter school holidays with ‘Praise You’.

Back in January the lead single, ‘Dance in the River’, off their self titled full length album spent 3 weeks at #1.
The history-making single from the Newsboys United lineup once again tops this weeks chart for a sixth week—’United’ features current members Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis alongside former members Peter Furler and Phil Joel
A musical celebration joining the band’s past and present, “Greatness Of Our God” showcases Tait and Furler on lead vocals and is the first single from the super group’s recently released full-length debut. The triumphant worship anthem follows in the footsteps of such Newsboys megahits as “He Reigns,” “We Believe” and “God’s Not Dead.”
US group Unspoken with ‘Reason’ spent two weeks in June at #1 and dominated airplay throughout August. They have released three studio albums with several singles reaching the top ten including ‘Who You Are’; ‘Lift Me Up’; ‘Start a Fire’ in 2014. Higher, The Cure in 2017; and Miracle in 2018.
Local singer/songwriter Paul Mah has been producing music for many years as a solo artist and leading various groups. His band the Drifting Boats and their music is beginning to impact locally with songs ‘Awe and Wonder’ and ‘Joy’ receiving increased airplay. Congratulations to Paul and band on topping the radio airplay (the Good News Radio top 10@10) for the first time with the latest single ‘Dance in the Water’.
Dance in the River topped the chart for the three consecutive weeks in January, keeping Toby Mac and Lauren Daigle from reaching the top spot.
