To the nonchalant observer Jake Howden would seem to be your average 19 year old, but give him a guitar and an audience to sing to, and something extraordinary soon unfurls. With a dulcet tone that’s been likened to the same sensation as eating Nutella straight from the jar, a distinct vein of decadence runs right through his wholehearted sound, sinking you deeper into your soul.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as Bon Iver, Ben Howard and Tallest Man on Earth. 24 year old Matt Dewar (aka “Direwolf”) is a stout product of the undiscovered indie/folk movement.
“I can hear this being a really special song to a lot of people. It’s filled with some pretty genuine emotion.” – Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J
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.
Not Good With Horses
A mix of ragged country blues and rockabilly tunes drawing influence from the likes of Neil Young, Gillian Welch, Justin Townes Earle & Townes Van Zandt.
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!
Originally from the Blue Mountains, Julia Jacklin is a singer/songwriter who’ll put a smile on ya dial, but only for a short while.
“For four minutes I completely forgot about the world. It was all about this song.” – Dom Alessio (Triple j)
Richard Cuthbert is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Sydney. He has released two records on Sydney label Sin Scivvy, 2012’s Adventure Bay Rock, and 2014’s Winterlude. Cuthbert toured both records nationally and his third solo release, POJO, is set for national release in 2015. Cuthbert has also recorded and performed under the band name Cuthbert and the Night Walkers. The band toured nationally, played a host of festivals, supported the likes of Peter, Bjorn and John, Kate Miller-Heidke, Old Man River, The John Steel Singers, Sparkadia, Jamie T, and released 2 albums on ABC Music. Cuthbert also plays and writes in Sydney country outfit Green Mohair Suits, psychedelic pop act Richard in Your Mind, and garage act The Knits.
Formed in 2013, Echo Deer is a Sydney based five-piece who have recently released their debut EP “Side A”. Their music is a blend of folk, blues, country and rock, deriving influences from artists such as JJ Cale, Crosby Stills and Nash, and Fleetwood Mac.
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.
Sydney-based singer-songwriter Katie Wighton’s artistry defies definition. She’s that rare combination. Intensely musical. Surprisingly original. A solo performer whose fragile beauty and sheer honesty leaves audiences spellbound.
As off-putting as Brian may be, he really is a nice guy. Admired for his simple physical beauty, his music is reflective, personal, and quite often intricate. He’s been referred to as both left-of-centre and and a writer with great pop sensibilities. Don’t be put off by his boldness or discomforting sense of humour. His attitude to music is, at it’s core, quite serious.
