Armed with the warmth of her cello, vocals that cut to the bone and lyrics that dance between darkness and light, Brisbane-based Monique Claredelivers unfeigned modern folk. Her beautifully quirky songs are born out of old folk traditions from Scandinavia and the USA, refined by her classical cello background and influenced by her love of progressive artists like Björk and Radiohead.

Liv Cartledge EP Launch + Tom West + Kerryn Fields

Indie folk goddess Liv Cartledge brings us her new up tempo single ‘HEARD YOUR NAME’ brandishing her trademark raspy voice and storytelling prowess. 

In April 2017 Cartledge dropped her delicate first single ‘You Got Me High’ since taking out the coveted 2015 Telstra Road To Discovery competition and she did not disappoint. Selling out her single launch in record time and amassing desiderated reviews; 
“Love the voice, those guitar melodies and the sense of intimacy. A beautiful tune’. triple j, Dom Alessio
“Cartledge voice has the same velvety texture as Katy Steele or Abby Dobson. With her single launch selling out before a location was even announced, it’s safe to say Cartledge is set for a big year” I OH YOU

Delivering sanguine energy on the second single from her forthcoming EP ‘TIMBER’ Cartledge unleashes her unique blend of pitch perfect harmonies, full bodied melodies with heart wrenching lyrics, “Heard Your Name started out as a grief stricken yheart pour onto paper not long after I lost my Dad. Somehow after a few hours it had twisted itself into a song. I guess that's the beauty of being a songwriter”.

Soulful and honest, STAV (Stav Shaul) writes thoughtful, uplifting songs in English, French and Hebrew with bursts of innovative rhythmic fire. Folk, jazz and a hint of something else, she has a compelling ability to tell a story in song. Tears and laughter are the main ingredients in the songwriting process.

The Royal Parks video launch + Hannah Cameron

The Royal Parks are excited to play in support of a new film directed by Amy Arnott in collaboration with The Pin for their single 'In the Wrong' from their debut album, Suburb Home.

The clip is a series of portraits of 26 women/femme people, reflecting on times they have felt as though they weren't listened to, or felt vulnerable about speaking out, and in contrast, times they felt empowered, listened to and respected. 

Wonderful singer-songwriter Hannah Cameron will be playing in support, with doors open around 8pm and of course - free entry!!

Our band is named after a beautiful park in Melbourne's (Naarm) north, the land of which had long been a camping ground for ceremony for the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land where we live and make music, and that sovereignty has never been ceded.

Ben Carter + Jess Parker

Melbourne guitarist Ben J. Carter has been playing his unique brand of acoustic slide guitar country blues around Melbourne for the last three years and has featured at the Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival for the last two years.

Ben’s reinterpretation of old time blues from the 1920’s and 1930’s aims to pay tribute to the iconic bluesman of the Mississippi Delta from a time when it was just one man and his guitar playing smoke filled juke joints late into the night.  Add to the mix a swagger of originals played on acoustic, lap steel and resonator guitars along with a trusty stomp box, it`s up tempo foot stomping finger picking goodness..

Ben`s debut Long Player “Silverline Skyway” is set for release in August. Recorded at Tender Trap studios and mixed at 400 Acres in Melbourne, the album  conveys his mastery of finger picking guitar, songs of regret and new beginnings and is accompanied by some of Melbourne`s finest Violin and Cello players adding a country tinge and rich textures to some finely crafted songs.
