"You sound like Ed Sheeran on coke...but in a good way" - Some legend punter
He's quirky to say the least and never takes himself too seriously. It's a fusion of folk, rap, roots and rock'n'roll which he backs up with his theatrical roots. Using an acoustic guitar and a ginormous collection of original songs, he likes to tailor sets on the fly, which adapt to his given audience and environment
Kat Eddy Trio: (8:30pm):
As some guy once said, "nobody puts Baby in a corner" and similarly nobody puts a singer-songwriter into a genre box. But basically, we're talking guitar-based tunes with a little jazz and soul and some occasional funk or hip hop influence thrown in, underpinning lyrical explorations of major issues like injustice, feminism, vulnerability, and coffee. Audiences most frequently comment on Kat's interesting chords, her songwriting, and her very large guitar. Performing as a trio featuring Brad Moffitt on drums and Brendan Henriques on bass, neither of whom are permitted backing vocal mics (sorry boys).
Nemo aka NEW$HOES is a singer-songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. Moving to Melbourne in early 2015 from Brisbane, Nemo began playing shows all around Melbourne becoming known for his soulful vocals, r&b flavored rhythms and emotional lyrical content. Utilising a basic loop pedal setup for live shows, with a hip hop influenced beat boxing style along with layered harmonies NEW$HOES gives a unique performance, compared to the likes of a Chet Faker or James Blake.
Listeners are treated to a full fruit salad of moods leaving a strange pop after-taste. Each song is entirely different to the next and are brought together with the unmistakable vocal acrobatics of the delectable duo. With overly candid lyrical content (although almost entirely politically acceptable), enjoyment is definitely the intention of the band offering boogie-worthy rhythms to bounce to. The band promises to give something out of the ordinary for a party-going audience yearning for something different.

Paul enjoys the idea of self-expression through all mediums. His art is unique and complex, and embraces the full spectrum of human emotion. Alternatively his character work reflects youthful days where skateboarding and art class topped the priority list. Whether bubbling over with the melodies from his mind, or freeing the colours of his emotion on paper, Paul is overflowing with creative energy. The soundtrack to Paul's work is a synergy of expression through instrumental and vocal poetics.

Dabbling in printing, tattooing, and various other types of art applications throughout her life, she has always had a passionate love affair with colour. Liana is inspired by the beauty and disgrace of life, nature and all it's emotions and transformations. This can be seen with the balance of colour, joy, shadows and darkness that dances throughout her creations. Due to the forever shifting whirlwind of life and nature her works form an everchanging and evolving style that reflects the peace as well as the chaos in a harmonious balance.
