- Port Royal
Formed over a shared passion of classic 'Rock n Roll' culture, Brisbane's Port Royal are fast spreading their message of self belief and unity through their music, across the country.
Emerging in 2015, the four piece power house are fronted by Lawson Doyle, with Liam Morton (Guitar), Connor Arnold (Drums) and Samuel Shepherd (Bass). The band originated as a post-high school project, paying homage to their idols.
The evolution of their sound, now an eclectic mix of pop-rock, alternative rock and blues influences, has become a beacon of light for those in search of a modern day injection of rock n roll. Their infectious guitar riffs combined with clever, playful lyricism makes for a musical flavour that evokes a joyous celebration of song and dance.
With their live performance a high energy, heavily engaging and irresistibly entertaining show, Port Royal are becoming known to fans and critics alike as a force to be reckoned with.
They possess something of the early 90's Britpop movement with their references to the likes of Oasis, flavoured with a heavy injection of AC/DC, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. All this while still maintaining their own unique sound and an attitude that keeps them away from any possible accusation of role-play or stereotype.
The band have two EP's to date; the first 'The Express' in 2016 and 'Love Passion Satisfaction' in 2018, with a collection of catchy singles, including fan favourite 'Rock & Roll is Dead', which reached #3 on the 4ZZZ Hottest 100 in 2018 and which received a month long feature on Rage and MTV Australia.
Their January 2019 single 'Don't You Forget About Me', received enthusiastic support from their fans and met critical acclaim, with the song currently sitting at over 70K streams on Spotify. The latest single 'Ain't Got You' was released in June of this year and hit 14K streams in its first two weeks.
Since their inception, the band have achieved a string of notable live performances including sell out shows at venues including The Zoo and Lefty's Music Hall in Brisbane. The band also appeared at Bluesfest 2019, St Kilda Festival 2019 and will later in the year, perform a headlining spot at the Caloundra Music Festival. They have supported international heavy weights Dead Kennedys (US), Supersuckers (US) and Australian favourites Wolfmother, The Delta Riggs & The Jungle Giants.
Now into 2019, the band are currently embracing a national tour in support of 'Ain't Got You' with plans to release an EP later in the year. Port Royal show no signs of slowing down on their high speed rock n roll trajectory.
- Los Scallywaggs

- Zoe Fox & The Rocket Clocks
Bringing together both forces of dark and light, Space explorers Zo Fox and the Rocket Clocks launch into a mixed salad of psychedelic pop, enter time warps of soft lullabies and then blast into the future with classic disco pop. Riddled with philosophical ideas and an ever-growing curiosity, Fox plays on the question 'You may talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?'. These alien abnormalities have a somewhat cheeky yet melancholic manner, challenging their lovely listeners to make something of themselves.
We are all swirling around in space anyway, so we might as well come together and dance...
- Dande & The Lion
Dande and The Lion is an indie rock band from Sydney.
