Hailing from the Sunshine Coast, Sahara Beck is a fiercely independent artist who blends jazz, blues, country, pop and rock to create something entirely new.
The 19-year-old has been featured on triple j, won several Queensland Music Awards, toured the country, performed at countless festivals, written songs with Bernard Fanning and Evil Eddie (Butterfingers), and shared the stage with the likes of The Cat Empire and The Jezabels. See her perform songs from her latest album, 'PANACEA'.
"Beck's voice is a tempest, gale force one minute, sultry the next, right back up to the heavens and beyond. Impressive, in a word." Rhythms Magazine.
"She has heart this girl and a bit of torture driving it." Sydney Morning Herald.
"Becks restless spirit is infectious she's that unique kind of talent that leaves you wondering what's next." Rolling Stone Magazine.
Catapulting to the top of Australian playlists, 18-year-old Tia Gostelow is an indie rock artist whose star is rising fast.
Tia earned six nominations for the 2017 Queensland Music Awards, including two wins, in Schools and Folk Singer/Songwriter categories, not long after gaining recognition from triple j Unearthed, winning their 2016 Indigenous Initiative and, separately, a place in their triple j Unearthed High 2016 Top 5. Tia's four released singles have racked up over a million streams on Spotify and Apple Music, and received video plays on RAGE and MTV. Tia has performed at festivals such as BIGSOUND and Groovin the Moo and joined Husky on their national tour. Check out one of Australia's hottest young artists as she delivers her signature blend of velvet vocals, rich instrumentals, nostalgic folk-rock and upbeat pop.
"Her vocals are arresting as ever, while lyrically and musically, the Queensland Music Award winner keeps on pushing, crafting music that oozes finesse and maturity." The AU Review.
"Among Australias most talented up and coming artists." Music Feeds.
Drawing comparisons with the likes of Julia Stone and Lisa Mitchell, Greta Stanley delivers a delicate blend of lush vocals, honest lyrics and gentle melodies. Since bursting onto the indie music scene in 2015, the 22-year-old songstress has racked up over one million plus streams on Spotify, toured the East Coast of Australia several times and supported the like of Boy and Bear, The Rubens, Sarah Blasko and Didirri. She also won last years triple j Unearthed Groovin the Moo Townsville competition and currently has tracks from her recent Debut LP in rotation on triple j and Sydney's fbi radio. Greta's youthful, electric and emotional songs will leave you feeling like somebody has reached right in and given your heart a little shake with both hands.
"Self-possessed and mature, Stanley's lyrics strike a balance between the raw...and tangible poetry." Sydney Morning Herald.
