There's only a few things you will never forget. Your first kiss, your first broken heart and the song that gave you hope again. A melody that brings your heart to life, lyrics that give you hope, a sound that passes by your ears and goes straight to your spirit. Thats why we sing, thats why we write. Music is more than just a sound, it's something that can inspire you unlike anything else. Music is an adventure.
Now residing back in Australia, Geoff Achison has clearly earned a loyal US following since moving to Atlanta from Melbourne in 2007. Guitar Player Magazine readers voted Achison one of the “Top Ten Hottest New Guitarists” in the world in 2008. Having taught himself to play in the isolation of rural Australia, he has developed a blues/funk style all his own. Unaware of how the sounds he was hearing on his limited record collection were produced, he invented some of his own techniques - without the aid of pedals or gadgets.
Hexadecimal is Nottingham-based breaks duo Scott Reeder and Ben Harvey. With numerous critically-acclaimed releases, a residency at the multi-award winning Nottingham breaks night "Spectrum" and a 2007 Breaks Poll gong under their belt, the breaks world now knows all about Hexadecimal.

Official Website - http://www.re-e.net re:enactment are a five piece band from Brisbane, Australia. They have a dense sound that combines jagged guitar with big droning synths and heavy IDM influences. The resultant sound is electronic pop rock, with some unusual effects and musical ideas thrown in. They have self-released two EP's at present, entitled Kittens & Regicide (which was also released as a limited edition USB stick featuring 18 songs & remix files)
The story behind the Stickleback project is one of shifting compromises. Songwriter Ronnie Duisters' musical carreer started out with playing the clarinet in the local orchestra, due to a shortage of available saxophones. Even though his dream had to take a detour, he tried to learn as much as possible and developed quite a taste for melody. Especially dramatic and emotional musical pieces had his preference.
Inside The Whale was founded in the Danish town Aarhus back in 1991. At that time most of the members had already played together in the band “It's It” for about two years.
Inside The Whale was in the finals of the “DM I Rock” (Danish Championship for rock bands) in both 1992 and 1993.
The “DM I Rock” 1993 was exceptional that year, as this final also featured two other great bands Dizzy Mizz Lizzy and Kashmir.
