In 1998, Us Not Them (Chloe and Jason Roweth) began learning, performing and recording songs from the repertoire of remarkable traditional singer Carrie Milliner. Rob Willis and others have collected an extraordinary list of beautiful, and often rare, traditional Australian music from Carrie and her family, who were sleeper cutters from near Eden, on the far south coast of NSW.

 

"... Chloe with the sheer power and beauty of her voice made me sit up and listen, I had finally found a home for one of my favourite collected songs."  Rob Willis, regarding 'Bonnie Moon.'
