ZOE BADWI

Zoë Badwi - The Artist / Writer / Actor / Model / Presenter

Zoë Badwi is one of Australia's best kept secrets. Working in both the pop and club domain, she is a prolific writer and singer. With 2 top 10 Australian hits already under her belt (with pop act Sirens) lead singer of Black Dogs and an established acting and modeling career, It’s safe to say that Zoë is a busy girl!...

JIMMY BARNES

Jimmy Barnes is the heart and soul of Australian rock & roll. After 40 years on stages of all kinds, Jimmy is an icon – his nickname “Barnesy” conjures up thoughts of rock music at an ear-splitting volume, and of soul standards given a unique reading. Jimmy has been through it all and lived to tell the tale and that has earned him a place in Australia’s heart and heartland. Along the way, he has sold more records in Australia than any other domestic rock & roll artist.

 

Jimmy’s live shows are legendary for their intensity.

CHOIRBOYS

With six albums under their belt, the biggest selling album to date is the double-platinum 'Big Bad Noise'. This spawned the evergreen favourites 'Run To Paradise' and 'Boys Will Be Boys'.

The Choirboys have carved a reputation as one of Australia's premier live rock bands. Little has changed as the boys' passion, energy and excitement inspire audiences across the country...

THE ANGELS

Through four decades, Rick and John Brewster, The Angels Guitarists, co-founders and its most prolific songwriters, have seen lineups change and the bands musical style re-arrange, but through it all they’ve maintained the pure Australian rock guitar sound that’s driven The Angels most legendary songs. 

ICEHOUSE

With a career spanning over 30 years, ICEHOUSE has continued to delight millions with their music, well-known and loved by audiences across generations. ICEHOUSE has played to sellout audiences in Australia and has toured extensively. Icehouse began in 1977 as a Sydney-based pub rock band called Flowers, who were the highest paid unsigned act in Australia at the time.

DADDY COOL

Daddy Cool emerged in 1970. Summer 70/71 saw DC take Melbourne by storm via their TF Much Ballroom performances. Appearances at outdoor rock festivals sealed their reputation nationally. 

In early 1971 Daddy Cool released Australia's all-time champion #1 Rock Anthem ‘Eagle Rock’. By the end of the year the group had set new sales records in this country, dominating the charts & concert scene, and became the first Australian band to make a real impact on the US touring circuit playing major concerts with Fleetwood Mac, Deep Purple, Captain Beefheart, Little Feat, Linda Rondstat, Earth Wind & Fire, Elvin Bishop & more & releasing albums worldwide on Reprise Records.

BRIAN CADD

Axiom 1969-71 - Brian and Don had formed a strong writing partnership and after the demise of The Groop they put together what is generally considered Australia’s first supergroup: Axiom. The rest of the all-star line-up consisted of former Twilights lead singer Glenn Shorrock, Valentines drummer Doug Lavery (later replaced by Don Lebler) and Cam-Pact singer-guitarist Chris Stockley. 

Much of their work exhibited the influence of The Band, whose first two albums had cast their spell on so many musicians, including George Harrison and Eric Clapton. Don and Brian co-wrote all of Axiom’s original material, including the hit singles Arkansas Grass, A Little Ray of Sunshine and My Baby's Gone, and the band recorded two very fine LPs, Fool’s Gold (Fable, 1969) and If Only (Warner-Reprise, 1971), the latter recorded in London and produced by the legendary Shel Talmy...

MENTAL AS ANYTHING

In a search for the quintessential Australian band, Mental As Anything have to be considered one of the prime candidates. 

Without ever referring to an Australian icon or landmark, their songs still carried images of an Australia and an Australian attitude to life we can relate to...

GRACE KNIGHT

Grace sang her passage to Australia on the Women's Weekly World Cruise and once in Perth Grace hooked up with a few bands and eventually found her niche when she and Bernie Lynch formed Eurogliders. 

Eurogliders enjoyed major success in Australia with numerous hit singles and albums as well as chart success in the US . One of the highlights of touring the US was performing live to an audience of 65 million viewers on MTV's New Years Eve show.
