It is a rare moment that you find a musician that can captivate you in a single song. Creating a sound that is grounded by honest lyrics but lifted by resonant percussion and melancholic reverb, HOWQUA gives even the most unseasoned of gig-goers that feeling of witnessing an artist on the brink of something huge.
Carrying a certain enigma with his musical style, HOWQUA's raw and compelling lyrics draw you in, while his performance leaves you yearning to know his story. Not one to shy away from baring his soul through his music, HOWQUA displays all the traits of a phenomenal storyteller and performer.
Meet Anna O. Serious buzz is building around this young Perth artist who is consistently releasing unique, world-class music; "This is a real beauty. Warm build, lots of heart in those vocals. Perfect harmonising." Triple J
Anna's brand new single 'Whisper' delivers an intimate and spine tingling vocal performance accompanied by the sonically captivating production of Angus Dawson. "A voice that whispers to you, a voice that you can't switch off, a voice that no one else can hear. 'Whisper' is about not being able to hide from your instinct / inner-voice. Explains Anna.
New generation Indigenous Australian artist Yirrmal, from North-East Arnhem Land, is making an exciting entrance into the music scene. Inspired by heroes Yothu Yindi, Yirrmal is a refreshing singer- songwriter, fusing tradition and contemporary with class and passion. Performing as a solo artist, and with group Yirrmal & The Yolngu Boys.
Yirrmal Marika, a young Yolngu man from the community of Yirrkala, is an aspiring songwriter and guitarist with a beautifully powerful voice, singing songs about his homeland and culture with feeling and depth beyond his years.
