Jac Stone tells stories when she sings, and when she sings people listen. Rarely does an artist step onto a stage and make an impression like Jac. She paints vivid pictures with her lyrics and mesmerises her crowds effortlessly. More impressive still, this unassuming songstress does it by simply standing there and telling her story, without ever needing to even slightly deviate from who she really is. The honesty in her performances is one of the most powerful aspects of her show. In the past couple of years Jac has graced the stage at the Splendour in the Grass festival and Red Deer Music Festival, supported Powderfinger on their farewell tour, has been invited to be part of Woman In Voice’s 20th Year anniversary show and performed extensively up and down the east coast.
He’s a banjo playing, vege patch tending surfer and he wants you to join him for a nice cup of Sweet Summer Tea. Christian Patey, recently played on Triple J national radio and has released his first solo EP, recorded at Vault Studios. Over a cuppa he’s keen to share tales of life, love and the future. Sweet Summer Tea is a dreamy, acoustic treat, with the banjo the backdrop for Christian’s lyrics. Build Bridges Where the Rivers Are is super special. It’s an ode to pursuing your dreams, which features a kids’ chorus. The littlies have their entire future ahead of them. It’s a poignant reminder to always keep striving to achieve, no matter what the obstacles. Sweet Summer Tea’s been brewing for a while. The six-month process was a labour of love for Christian. The one-man band wrote all the songs and played all the instruments, percussion included.
