- First Beige
Conceived in Brisbane, First Beige draws upon driving disco grooves, sweeping synths and
irresistible vocal hooks to craft a full-bodied sonic spectacular guaranteed to get any crowd grooving.
An infectious live act taking inspiration from the likes of Flying Lotus, Parcels and Kaytranada; the six-
piece have continued to solidify themselves as one of the rawest, most energetic and vibrant live acts
to come out of Brisbane in recent years.
Since their inception, First Beige has come a long way from a bedroom recording project of founding
member David Versace in 2016. Four years, two EP's, two East Coast tours and a QLD Music Award
nomination later and the Brisbane 6-piece continue to impress crowds nationwide.
Their sets at BIGSOUND Music Festival and Conference 2019 were highly acclaimed, with Deafen
County saying, "judging by the movement in the crowd, everyone is in favour of their funk" and
Scenestr saying, "The set has everything, from dreamy, drawn-out guitar solos, to snappy snares, to a
The band have hit the ground running in 2020, opening Brisbane's Laneway festival, announcing
appearances at Party In The Paddock, A Festival Called Panama, Nine Lives and Meadow Festival,
as well as shows in Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney, Yamba and the Gold Coast. Following up from
their second EP 'Mirrors', First Beige are already hard at work in the studio, continuously evolving
their sound with the same core objective to get feet moving and faces smiling.
A.GIRL is the moniker of 19 year old Hinenui-Terangi Tairua. Growing up in Western Sydney, the connection to her family's Maori homeland of Te Hapua in the north island of New Zealand runs deep. A.GIRL is a nickname given to her as a child by her musical family. Her artist heros are broad in genre - ranging from Freddy Mercury to The Weeknd but the contemporary R&B and Hip Hop influences in her style are self-evident.
The title of A.GIRL's debut single "2142" (pronounced twenty one forty two) is the postcode where she lives. The track is about the dark side of living in her area and samples the recording of a young woman she knows being arrested by police. It's an all too common scene in the 2142 postcode area.
A.GIRL's second single 'Play' (released 23 August 2019) taps into her inner Goddess and is resonating with worldwide tastemakers and alternative radio.
New music coming early 2020.
- Bones & Jones
Bones and Jones have evolved from the raw sounds of Nuggets to writing a duplicitous array of songs; from upbeat catchy pop tunes with quirky rhythmic affectations, to softer, more vulnerable songs that bear truths far beyond the expectations of young adults. With swaying drums, driven organ and roaring lapsteel, they pay homage to the country greats, while paving a path to their own unique sound.
- Dane Overton & The Joy Williams Band
Dane Overton and the Joy Williams band are blues rock musicians from the south coast of New South Whales. They play foot stomping, dirty, blues rock music all over Australia.
Originally hailing from the southern shores of Shellharbour, before relocating to Sydney's Inner West, Ducks. is the brainchild of Jack Lincoln, a jazz influenced multi-instrumentalist committed to spreading the word of a new and improved surf rock genre known as 'Retro-Futuristic Surf.'
With previous singles from their debut EP Close Your Eyes receiving extensive Triple J radio play and praise from the likes of presenters Matt Okine, Max Quinn and Al Newstead, "Crazy" again captures the infectious wave cladded style of its predecessors. This 13/8 exploration is merely the tip of the iceberg of material to be unleashed in 2020
Having supported the likes of The Vanns, The Kava Kings, Dune Rats and Sticky Fingers, Ducks. lineup consists of Jack Lincoln (vocals and rhythm guitar), Zac Olsen (synthesisers and vocals), Connor O'Daly (Lead Guitar), Nicolas Serray (Bass) and Kieran Parker (drums).
