The Finders Keepers SS17 Sydney Music Line up

Shelley’s Murder Boys
Turn off the highway and head into the hills with Shelley’s Murder Boys – a band that brings a new verve to the old timey music of the Appalachians. With a haunting fiddle, a rollicking guitar, and a twanging banjo, Shelley and the boys will take you on a journey to their porch in the backwoods. You may never escape. In the band’s own words: “We are just a simple devil-lovin’ family that play bluegrass and folk tunes about the hills and rivers we’ve roamed, the things we’ve seen and the stories we’ve been told.”
Featuring Shelley, Jimmy and Joe, the band has appeared at several folk festivals and have supported many bands, such as The Backsliders.

Taryn La Fauci
Taryn La Fauci is a heartfelt navigator whose songs are crafted around the Alt-Folk and Americana genres, drawing similarities to Natalie Merchant, Joni Mitchell and Cat Power.

“Taryn’s lyrics may at first seem rather personal and inward-looking, but closer attention will invariably yield the realisation that the situations and stances reflect the listener’s own experiences just as much.” – David Kidman, Fatea UK

Martin Novosel (Purple Sneakers DJ)

“Excellent morals delivered in a wonderful way by passionate people” – What’s On Sydney
“Beautifully together, experienced and artfully aware of what excites children” – Lisa Thatcher
“We LOVED the show today veggies! The band was amazing and the songs were sooooooo groovy. Buzz and I laughed and tapped our toes and had the best afternoon out. Lah-Lah xx” – Lah Lah, ABC Kids

Jack Shit (DJ)
FBi radio rascal and rabid raconteur Jack Shit found his girlfriend at Finders Keepers. She wasn’t cheap – but she’s lasted beautifully!

Lisa Caruso
Described by Double J as “genuinely interesting pop music”, Sydney based artist Lisa Caruso’s wistful songs are quickly garnering a captive following. With powerful love-lorn vocals and heart-on-sleeve lyrics driving a gutsy indie-folk sound, Caruso is often compared to a modern day Edith Piaf for her hauntingly beautiful voice and impassioned delivery.
“It’s always fun to cotton on to an artist as they’re beginning to flourish on the local scene, and it’s even better to see their potential that you know more people should be switching on to. We think that Lisa is one of these artists” – The AU Review

Ollie Brown
In the three years since Brown’s first EP release, ‘Moving On’, the 25 year old Sydney based Singer/Songwriter has toured Australia with The Beach Boys, Michael Bublé, Bic Runga, James Reyne, David Ryan Harris, Kina Grannis and many more. He has played multiple sold out shows at the Sydney Opera House, performed three times at Byron Bay Bluesfest and received airplay on over thirty radio stations across North America.

DJ Dylabolical 

DJ Dylabolical is one of Sydney’s finest purveyors of forgotten nostalgic pop music and upbeat mutli-genre party tunes. He ran the 60’s dance party Twist and Shout for four years from 2010 to 2014 and has also DJ’d everywhere around town including: the Sydney Festival, Black Cherry, Jurassic Lounge, the This Is Not Art Festival, the Gumball festival, Splendour in the Grass and the Underbelly Arts Festival.

Leroy Lee
Enchanting songsmith and acoustic guitarist, LEROY LEE creates intimate and hypnotic lamp-lit tunes, drawing the listener into his unique world. From driving guitar riffs to intricate finger-picking melodies, Leroy is reminiscent of English folk legends like Nick Drake and Bert Jansch.  His EP “Arcadia“ is an intuitive brew, weaving poetic metaphors around everyday experience, transporting us with intricate melodic textures … surprising us with  his turns of phrase and sonically rich guitar landscapes – twisting and turning, leading us on an intimate journey of surprise and intrigue.
