Andrew Gurruwiwi Band

Description:

Andrew Gurruwiwi Band are a high-energy, 8-piece funk and reggae band who have honed their chops on the beach at Birrtjimi and in the dirt of Yirrkala, the Andrew Gurruwiwi Band write real funk jams in their native tongue. Their sound is truly fresh - Yolngu Funk - a style only hinted at previously on the impossible-to-find pair of 7-inches cut by George Rrurrambu & Birdwave.

Just like King Stingray and Baker Boy before them, the Andrew Gurruwiwi Band are the next hot musical act to burst out of Arnhem Land.

The band is led by the one and only Andrew Gurruwiwi - a shy-but-extravagant, blind, keytar-wielding Yolngu elder with a passion to make people dance while sharing his culture.

Their explosive debut single “Gatjumak” has gone far and wide, turning many heads, and getting people excited about what’s to come.

Ben Mastwyk & His Millions

Description:

FRIDAY
SATURDAY
SUNDAY

Melbourne cosmic-country-rocker BEN MASTWYK writes his songs on the move. Planes, trains, rivers and highways set the mood. “There’s something about the rhythm of the world rolling by that stimulates the process” he explains. Gold-suited and rhinestoned, Mastwyk leads his seven-piece band THE MILLIONS into bold sonic territories where songs erupt into swaggering, psychedelic bar-room gems.

As a teenage noise-rocker, Mastwyk’s love of twang was instilled when he rode shotgun on the production of a family country record, exposing him to artists such as Cash, Kristofferson & Parsons and firmly establishing his love of classic country music. At art school he picked up a banjo and joined Jemma Rowlands and her Clifton Hillbillies leading to performances in Nashville TN and Austin TX; then a borrowed guitar spawned a flood of songwriting culminating in his 2015 debut album Mornin Evenin. Further journeys across America’s south inspired his second, more sonically diverse album, Winning Streak.

With a growing reputation as a dynamic entertainer and applauded songwriter, Mastwyk has become an artist to watch in the Australian country music scene.  Twice nominated for Best Country Album (Music Victoria Awards), Mastwyk has toured his songs around Australia, NZ and the USA receiving high rotation across national radio. His third album, 2021’s LIVIN ON GOLD STREET, debuted at #1 on the Australian Independent charts and #2 on the ARIA Australian Country charts.

Bones & Jones

FRIDAY
SATURDAY

Coming off the release of their sophomore album 'Bees' (January 2020), Bones and Jones have moved away from what they describe as their beginnings as a 60’s rock inspired group. While maintaining their knack for writing catchy pop tunes, the band have steered themselves towards a more mature sound; a brilliant integration of pop and rock that is uniquely their own. Bones and Jones have a sense of multi-genre fluidity which allows their reach to span across diverse audiences of old and new music lovers. Announcing their third album in July 2020, the band promised a series of single every month until the release of their AMP Nominated album 'Ginger Gold (Farm Singles)’.

Recorded over a period of three months during the first COVID lockdown, the tracks were laid down in the band’s “usual rehearsal space” on an old apple orchid farm. The recording and rehearsal studio was converted from the farm’s decommissioned fruit cooling room.

Over Several years Bones and Jones have emerged as one of Melbourne’s most exciting and energetic Performers. The dynamic six piece have graced festivals across the country such as New Years Evie, Grampians Music Festival, Dashville, Meadow & Boogie. Crafting songs inspired by the greats Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Karen Dalton, Wilco and Nick Lowe, their DIY ethos has gained the group recognition from the Music Victoria Awards, NME, The Guardian, FBI, Triple R, Pbs, Rage & ABC.

'Ginger Gold (Farm Singles)' is available digitally and on limited edition vinyl.

Thousands of bands try and replicate the loose charm of 60s and 70s classic rock and blues, but so few make it sound this exciting and this much fun. - Dan Condon - ABC Double J

Daddy Long Legs

Description:

"DADDY LONG LEGS takes the blues and turns them inside out, upside down, round about and renews their primal energy. My favorite rompin’ stompin’ New York band of the moment." 

-Lenny Kaye

Brooklyn, NY-based trio DADDY LONG LEGS—Brian Hurd (vocals, harmonica, guitar), Murat Akturk (slide guitar), Josh Styles (drums, maracas) made their Yep Roc Records with Lowdown Ways, their third studio album. 

Produced by Jimmy Sutton and engineered by Alex Hall (JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, Jake La Botz) at Hi-Style Studios in Chicago, the album features 12 original compositions with songwriting contributions from JD McPherson and Sutton. A new direction from their first two studio albums (released by Norton Records), Lowdown Ways sees the boys widen their sonic horizons with field hollers, gospel, Cajun, and Mississippi Hill Music, coupled with their renowned supercharged, harp-driven R&B bangers. 

When asked by Village Voice “What is DADDY LONG LEGS?,” Hurd answered, “Rock and roll salvation through the spirit of roots and blues.” While influenced by the likes of Son House, Captain Beefheart, Howlin’ Wolf, MC5, and Dr. Feelgood, their sound personifies garage rock and punk with a contemporary raw twist performed in their own brand of supercharged R&B.

Leading up to the album’s release, Rolling Stone Countrynamed “Glad Rag Ball”one of the ‘10 Best Country, Americana Songs of the Week’, citing “it’s all guttural hollering and foot-stomping rhythms.” Brooklyn Veganpremiered the official video for “Pink Lemonade,”co-written with JD McPherson and WFMU “Mornin’ Noon & Nite”. Since forming in 2010, the band has released two studio albums, a live album and two 45s on Norton Records. Their last album was 2015’s Rides Tonight. They have toured with Jon Spencer, Hurray For The Riff Raff, The Sonics, Nikki Lane, Nick Waterhouse, amongst others.

Deep Heat Blues Band

SUNDAY

Massage your ears with interpretations of the Blues by the Bellarine Peninsula’s Deep Heat version history

Learn where it came from and then Immerse yourself in the classics from 1950’s,60’s and 70’s and experience where it all began.

We formed through their love of traditional Louisiana and Mississippi blues from 1930’s to 1970’s. Playing from the songbook of the likes of Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Taj Mahal, Jimmy Reed and Charlie Musselwhite to name a few, the 5 piece mixes electric with an acoustic edge to give you blues that is more “Hill Country” than Chicago.

Tex Miller is on guitars and vocals and will be trading riffs with guitar sensation Lee Henderson on electric guitars. Stu (Harmonica Blue) Miller fills out the traditional sound on harmonica and vocals. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL. This line up is complimented with the explosive rhythm section of Paul (Gadget man) Anderson, drums and vocals, Tim (Dangerous) Waters, bass.

Together the band captures the essence of this iconic genre.

“We bow to the greats to give you an experience we guarantee will leave you with an earworm you can’t shake and a smile from ear to ear.”

But be warned there will be no Funk, no Soul and no Rock and Roll. Just pure and authentic Blues.

Emily Lubitz

Description:

“Emily's exquisite, brushed-velvet vocal conjures a steady neck-hair raising waltz” - The Age 

“Strikingly assured” - Rolling Stone Australia

Very few artists can cradle your heart in their hands while they kick your ass, but after more than a decade touring with critically acclaimed indie-folk darlings Tinpan Orange, Emily Lubitz is striding out on her own. The six-foot tall frontwoman with the gossamer voice has combined forces with Freyja Hooper on drums and Winona Miller on bass to create a new, darkly romantic vision.

With that timeless, aching quality that only the great voices have, Lubitz is every singer’s favourite singer, a captivating live performer who has won the hearts of audiences around the world, and yet she is more priestess than popstar, creating her own iconography that sears itself into the listener’s imagination.

Lubitz tells us stories about everyday things, but her voice transfigures them into works of beauty, like a messy bedroom suffused with golden morning light: “Sometimes we just need to pretend things are better than they are. Remember how it used to be. Sometimes we share pain that seems bottomless and we can only acknowledge it in a glance, while we try to keep it together, get the kids to bed, share a beer and put a record on.”

Lubitz is a veteran of the scene, having performed on some of the world’s biggest stages and collaborated with the likes of Paul Kelly, Martha Wainwright, Clare Bowditch and the album she recorded with old friend Mama Kin, and yet her solo work is imbued with the raw energy of a breakthrough artist.

Wandering through the material on Begin Again, her soon-to-be-released EP, one is often surprised by commonplace images from domestic life that rear up out of the darkness, saturated by a strange poetic force. This sense of the everyday uncanny, and of the magic behind the veil of suburbia, is the arrow in a technicolour musical bow.

With the super-fun creativity of her all-grrrl rhythm section behind her, Lubitz prowls the stage with the gravitas of a giant Edith Piaf stalking through a post-apocalyptic Laurel Canyon, with her friends from East Brunswick in tow.

Felicity Urquhart & Josh Cunningham

Description:

SATURDAY
SUNDAY

Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham (of The Waifs), have a collective haul of Golden Guitars, ARIA Awards, multi-platinum album sales and extensive touring over nearly three decades, that serves as a readymade conventional definition of success. But there are many ways in which success can be defined, and when the irresistible forces of music and love brought Felicity and Josh together, they set in motion something wildly successful and truly special. 

When they accepted an invitation to join “The Song Club” (a creative collective that tasked members with writing a song a week to a prompt) they were just looking to be productive during lockdown and push themselves beyond the comfort zone. 

The experience proved to be a lifeline to creativity and community during a challenging year, and in time Felicity became not just a fellow song club member to Josh, but a muse. Identifying herself in many of his weekly offerings, she decided the only thing to do was invite him over more frequently for cups of tea, so she could get to the bottom of why he was writing songs about her, and explore writing songs together. 

Fast forward and The Song Club has spawned a story of inspiring beauty, a family and an eleven track album, appropriately titled The Song Club.

The Song Club debuted at #1 on the ARIA Country Album Charts and #10 on the ARIA Album Chart. It has since garnered four Golden Guitar nominations in the upcoming 2021 CMAA Awards and was also nominated for an ARIA in the “best country album” category.

These accolades reflect the unique chemistry created by the pair. Joyous and uncontrived, their music translates seamlessly from album to stage, with masterful musicianship on a humble array of guitars and banjo’s providing the perfect vehicle to transport their exquisite songwriting directly to the heart. It’s stripped back and doesn’t need dressing up to be full of life and energy. 

The pairing is unexpected, the songs unforgettable and the aura unique. Untainted by the demands of fashion, Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham are able to be who they are in an unpretentious way that description cannot fully capture and experience alone can convey. The song Club story and sound is arrestingly beautiful and quite unlike anything else.
