Custom Kings

Since forming in 2002, the Custom Kings have evolved into an unidentifiable outfit emersed in musical variation. Always in motion are the Kings whose love for diversity has seen them infuse junk-yard jazz with capo’d folk; appalachian picking with loose indie hop - and blues with everything. Signed to Liberation on the back of an 8-track home recording, they emerged from the studio with a collection of songs custom made for listeners who prefer music undefined.

Otouto

Otouto is a Melbourne-based band that is centered on the music of singer and songwriter Hazel Brown . With the help of Kishore Ryan (Kid Sam, Seagull) on drums/pots and Martha Brown on vocals and keys, the trio's influence lies in salt of the earth folk tradition, the soul music of Motown and Philadelphia and those working at the edges of today's melting pot of pop, folk, electronica and hip-hop.

Joel Silbersher

Joel is a veteran of the Australian rock scene, as a teenager playing in Melbourne's raw and illustrious "God" whose single "My Pal" became a veritable rock anthem.
