From winning the 1986 Countdown Award for Most Popular Female Artist, to receiving the Order of Australia Medal 30 years later, Kate Ceberano is one of the most highly regarded vocalists in Australian music history. She’s topped the charts across four decades, won multiple ARIAs, and blown the roof off at the biggest and best festivals
Blending folk and roots with Psychedelic rock, ARIA award-winner William Crighton has made waves internationally with his dark, powerful songs and voice. From tales of murder and suicide, to love and euphoric conversations with ants, Crighton’s songs tell vivid stories across colourful themes and musical expressions.
Cass is an R&B soul singer with a sound that embodies old-school cool with bold sexy optimism. Her sound takes its cue from a vintage sonic swagger a-la Amy Winehouse and Sharon Jones, and when you press play you’ll want to be sipping cocktails at your favourite lounge bar in LA with best friends and lovers alike.
MATT JOE GOW & KERRYN FIELDS

& THE POISON SPITTING GIN QUEENS
Brooke Taylor is a Melbourne-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist. Her music style encompasses folk, rock, and country elements. Wowing crowds with her magnetic energy at gigs and music festivals across the country, including St Kilda Music Festival, Bruthen Blues Festival, Leaps and Bounds and The Taste Of Tassie.
Van Walker is an Australian musician from the island state of Tasmania and is a prolific songwriter in the genres of folk, country and rocknroll. He has just returned from a combined tour of Ireland & Canada, where he found 4 days off in his busy schedule to record what will be his next solo album, due for release next year.
Country blues songstress, Misty Harlowe is a rising star hailing from the hills of Victoria’s high country. Her music is inspired by her roots in Gippsland’s Snowy River region. As a natural storyteller with stories of the Australian landscape, she charms the audience with her sweet velvety voice, intricate guitar playing, and strong country melodies.
Singer-songwriter Maggie Alley grew up in the city, moving to the country in her teens. She took the formative energy of the sprawling, heated suburban cauldron that is Melbourne to quieter, darker, greener places, and used the space and time to develop a song-writing talent that saw ABC Radio compare her to “a young Patti Smith” at just 20.
If you haven’t seen a live Mr Alford show we’ll describe it for you. Close your eyes and imagine you’re on a boat sailing through beautiful Caribbean islands, all your friends are there. An exotic handsome man dressed in a white suit is feeding you unsweetened organic cranberries. At the end of the boat there’s a guy in a baseball hat yelling folk country songs at you. It's like that.
Steve Paix has shared the stage with members of Crowded House, TISM and even Michael Bublé, and now he’s getting behind the microphone to present his own songs. His lyrics contain a mix of humour, philosophy and social commentary while his piano stye is an eclectic gumbo of blues, jazz and country sounds.
