Freyja Garbett - Afro Beast     Jazz, Experimental 07/10/2019
A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, she lists pianists and composers such as Fred Hersch, Gerald Clayton and Maria Schneider as critical influences to her music.
The next single off Maya is Afro Beast - Garbett's sublime dedication to Afrobeat's pacing rhythms. Tapping drums and clicking guitars are led to a mellow stride as the song swans between compositional elements. At times, the fullness of the ensemble glows with lush horn segments and warm backing instrumentals.

Experimental, Creative and Theatrical; Cone of Confusion blends musical curiosity through improvisation, bringing to the surface an unexpected mix of sounds rarely heard before.

Pattern of Ignorance is the opening track of Cone of Confusion debut album.

The upcoming concept album is programmatic, following the story of an individual dreaming about their inevitable emancipation from the system, irreversibly corrupt.

Harry James Angus is Australia's premiere jazz inspired, trumpet playing vocalist. Known internationally for his work with The Cat Empire and increasingly for his incandescent solo work.
Flicker, the new single from the new body of work by Harry James Angus indicates a solo performer at the absolute peak of his musical powers. A moving and deeply profound piece of art that features in equal parts, pathos, drama and achingly melancholic joy.

Foshe read the room and respond through free improvisation. Blending house music and meditative soundscapes with heavy, afro-inspired, polyrhythmic grooves, the 'Foshe' sound is raw, soulful, funky and unique.

Demon Days unique blend of jazz, soul and pop is set to captivate audiences and “transform any group of 20-somethings into an appreciative audience of jazz cats” (themusic.com.au).
Demon Days launch their new single “Gravel” ahead of their sophomore EP release “Taking It Slow This Time”.

The band’s self-produced “Gravel” starts with playful synth pads and quickly diverges into a much more mature and smooth sound with Bella Nicholls smooth vocals sauntering in to sit amongst a mellow backing of fluid synths, strolling bass and relaxed drums.
