TRTD Winners Liv Cartledge & Merpire take on Nashville


Telstra Road winners Liv Cartledge and Merpire (Rhiannon Atkinson-Howatt) have just finished up an incredibly exciting and big week in Nashville USA as part of their Telstra Road winners’ prize package.

The singer songwriters spent the week co-writing with Nashville artists including the legendary Kim Richie along with performing at Sounds Australia gigs including the well-known Bluebird Café. The girls capped off the week with a recording session with Nashville producer Neilson Hubbard ( and his incredibly talented studio musicians – a highlight of their time in Nashville.

Liv continued on to Canada for a month of songwriting and recording, whilst Merpire followed her time in Nashville with a visit to New York where she performed at The Bitter End, who has had the likes of Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder and Norah Jones (to name a few) on their stage.

The girls return back to Australia for the summer with plans to release new music and tour.

Safe to say they’re returning with more motivation, experience and a lot of music to share with the world!
