Karin’s dynamic live shows have seen her picking up awards and accolades at every turn, recently receiving three WA Country Music Awards. Her rootsy grooves are intimate and emotional whilst still bringing the audience to their feet!
A croc skinner turned gypsy musician from Broome who’s music has been described as ‘Gothic-Australiana’. A rich, raw sound that has it’s roots in Appalachian, Folk and West African desert blues.
This power trio from the UK combine off-kilter song structures, tricky punk-pop guitar riffs with super tight duo harmonies and and Irish accents to make intricate and endearing math-pop music. It all resolves itself into powerful equations of intricate and wildly enjoyable pop songs.
Alt-folk oddity Jacob Diamond sings bold songs about love and death. After years in Perth’s underground, Diamond has recently emerged as one of the foremost singer-songwriters in the west furnished with huge melodies and incisive lyrics.
Seven piece alternative-folk band from Perth combining storytelling, songwriting a and dynamic instrumental backdrop. The group is pushing a blended sound of raw vocals and song writing with a wholesome and dynamic backdrop of instrumentation. With inspiration steaming from a wide range of sources, such as early Pioneer’s like Bob Dylan’s or Neil Young to the modern stylistic sounds of Car Seat Head Rest or (Sandy) Alex G and set to release a debut album later in 2018, this is not an act to be missed!
