Antiskeptic

After almost 10 years and nearly 1000 shows, Melbourne power trio Antiskeptic have decided to finish their incredible journey this September. And what a journey it has been! Formed in the back of a record store in 1999, the band quickly rose to prominence through the strength of their energetic live shows and acclaimed recorded material. Hard working and independent, the band self-financed numerous EPs and albums including Memoirs of a Common Man (2001), Aurora (2003) and Monuments (2006).

Ball Park Music

In 2006, Ball Park Music began to crawl as an uneventful solo adventure for singer/songwriter Samuel Cromack. In the eighth year of the Naughties, equipped with a little collection of songs, his adventure took him to Brisbane. At a serendipitous pool-party he encountered Daniel Hanson, Dean Hanson, Paul Furness, Brock Smith and Jennifer Boyce: five of the most talented and delightful musicians...EVER!

Artist Type: 

Ash Grunwald

It is too simplistic to describe Ash Grunwald as just a blues musician. While it’s true that his music is steeped in the Delta blues tradition of the legendary acoustic musicians who proliferated in pre-World War II America’s deep South and the giants of electric blues who shaped rock and roll, it’s the young Victorian’s willingness to combine these influences with grooves and sounds common in contemporary music that sets him apart.

Weddings Parties Anything

Weddings Parties Anything, often known as WPA and Weddoes, is an Australian folk rock band formed by Mick Thomas in Melbourne in 1985 and continuing until 1998. Their name came from a Clash song ("Revolution Rock") and musicologist Billy Pinnell described their first album as the best Australian rock debut since Skyhooks' Living in the '70s. WPA initially gained a reputation as a hot new band through their constant touring in their early days, however they never really became a commercial success.
