Grave Forsaken

Grave Forsaken is Vaughan Gregory, Elias Salmela, Matt Skipworth and TIm Steadman. These four guys all met each other through playing in various amatuer Christian metal bands. The band was formed in September 2004 when circumstances led the four guys to play a few songs at an event called "Fusion Idol" at Hillside Church in Western Australia. The performance was so much fun, and the guys worked so well together, that they decided to make a go of it as a proper band.

Lucie Thorne

Lucie Thorne is a singer-songwriter raised in Melbourne and based in New South Wales. She has released three albums, the most recent of which 2009's Black Across The Field, was nominated for an Australian Music Prize. Her style is a frequently sparse, languid and evocative form of folk-rock. Thorne uses her songs to distill the poetic from the everyday, and each new song opens onto an unlikely world of stories and characters. It’s this breadth and depth of writing that makes her music feel a little like a favourite book: the moment you finish, you want to read it again from the beginning.
