Charlie Mayfair

In January 2010, a band was born: full of energy, bursting with love and spilling over with songs to sing and stories to tell. This band is Charlie Mayfair. The first part of this year has seen the band racing around their hometown writing songs, making friends, and letting people experience their unique style of folk-fired pop. They hollered their gigs from the rooftops and Brisbane heeded their call.

Rainbow Chan

Rainbow Chan is a young Sydney musician with a love for story-telling. Whether she is chasing romantic adventures, stitching together childhood dreams or rummaging through antique fairs, Rainbow is constantly collecting bits and pieces for her music. The result: sweet acoustic folk-pop with electronic hues. With a sugary voice and an array of instruments in her picnic basket including guitar, piano, music-boxes, saxophone, glockenspiel, loop pedal and toy-pianos, Rainbow likes to create the sound of carousels and helium balloons.

Matthew Perryman Jones

www.mpjmusic.com "An articulate songwriter with a versatile and gritty tenor voice -- a combination that has drawn comparisons to everyone from Jeff Buckley to Leonard Cohen -- Matthew Perryman Jones has the touch of a poet and the narrative reach of a short story writer, making the best of his songs deeply resonant." -Steve Leggett (Rovi) Having just finished his first full length album since 2008, Land of the Living was produced by Cason Cooley (Katie Herzig) and is set to be released on May 29th.
