GUY SEBASTIAN

Recently, in a dingy bar with the slightly unusual name of Drom on New York’s Lower East Side, Guy Sebastian found himself playing to an audience of eight. And he loved it. 

“I played a residency in that bar for a month, and no one had any idea who I was, but it grew from a few people to a few hundred people. The whole experience of doing that has been so satisfying,” says Guy. “It’s been really good for my soul.”

And a huge serving of soul is exactly what informs Guy Sebastian’s fifth studio album Like It Like That. If there’s one thing that this album will do, it will move both your feet and your heart and get right into your bones whether you like it or not. 

RUSSELL MORRIS

In the late 1960’s Russell Morris became a teenage pop pinup idol with No.1 classic hits like “The Real Thing”, “Part 3 Into Paper Walls”, “Sweet Sweet Love”, “That Girl I Love”, “Wings Of An Eagle”, “Mr America” and “Rachael”. Now an Australian music biz cult hero, a host of hip young Australian bands such as “The Whipper Snappers” and “The Third Eye” have rediscovered his songs and brought them to the attention of a whole new generation. Cementing that even further was the success in 2001 of the Australian film “The Dish” which featured both his songs “The Real Thing” and “Wings Of An Eagle”. The film was a huge success in the USA and to top off such a successful year for Russell, top Australian band “Midnight Oil” also recorded a version of “The Real Thing”...

THE SCREAMING JETS

Before Silverchair came along The Screaming Jets were the most popular band to emerge from the Australian industrial town, Newcastle. 

More than Silverchair, The Jets' music is a product of that town. When the original band members were growing up in Newcastle they faced a future of either working in the steelworks and associated industries or not working at all. In a town like that the locals live hard, drink hard and want their rock hard. The Screaming Jets gave them what they wanted...

JESSICA MAUBOY

Jessica is an Australian singer who came to fame as Runner-Up on Australian Idol in 2006. 

Since then, she has released a studio album entitled ‘Been Waiting’, which has since gone twice Platinum. Six singles have been released from this album – all with great success. 

Jessica Mauboy is one of Australia’s top corporate entertainers: her energy lights up the room and has everyone on the dancefloor. She has a string of chart-topping hits and is a vivacious performer.

GABRIELLA CILMI

Gabriella Cilmi is ‘On A Mission’. Just turned 18, the Australian-Italian singer-songwriter is set to surprise a lot of people with her bold, fresh musical direction and feisty attitude: “I’m not a little girl anymore. I’ve grown up, and I’m ready to fight to get what I want.”

Gabriella Cilmi was catapulted to global fame by her worldwide mega hit,  ‘Sweet About Me’, which sold over 2 million copies, was top ten in 16 countries, viewed over 20 million times on you tube, spent 37 consecutive weeks in the UK singles chart in 2008 and was recently PRS certified the most played record of the 2009. Gabriella’s debut album ‘Lessons to be Learned’ went top 10 in over 10 countries, notching up close to a million sales.

FRANKIE J HOLDEN AND WILBUR WILDE - CLASSICS

Take two legends of Australian Rock and Roll who also just happen to be legends of television shows like IN MELBOURNE TONIGHT and HEY HEY IT’S SATURDAY, put them on stage with a hot band, and you have the recipe for superb, crowd pleasing entertainment.

Back doing what they do best, Frankie and Wilbur will have you dancing and singing along to the hit songs of OL’55, the multi-platinum band that launched them onto Australian show business and into the hearts of Australian audiences,  and a whole lot more knocked out 1950’s nifties...

THE VERONICAS

The Veronicas debut album The Secret Life Of... sold over 300,000 copies in Australia alone, three top 10 singles, an ARIA Award, MTV awards, international success, hundreds of magazine covers, constant touring. So much more has happened to twin sisters Lisa and Jessica Origliasso in that time. They've gained a world full of life and musical experience, all while becoming two of the most recognisable young faces in Australia.

Now, however, it's best you forget what you think you already know about The Veronicas, because this new album is set to change everything. This is HOOK ME UP and it's a dramatic new sound that marks The Veronicas' musical coming of age.
