Luke O’Shea – A recipient of The Bush Laureates ‘Golden Gumleaf’, 7 Golden Guitars and twice named the Australian Independent Country Music Artist of the Year -Luke O’Shea – has a powerful – yet classic Australian sound.

Deeply passionate about this incredible country of ours – Luke’s determination to Sing Up Australia – and it’s people- is at the absolute heart of his songs. Combine this with his uncanny ability to disarm and engage audiences – evoking tears and laughter – all within a matter of minutes- Luke O’Shea is master craftsman.

Karin Page – Rootsy alt-country with a dash of folk is how most would describe the style of 2016 Toyota Star Maker Winner Karin Page. She has just returned from playing at The Boyup Brook Country Music Festival in WA, where she picked up 2 awards – WA Female Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. She is also up for New Artist of The Year at The Country Music Channel Awards in 2017.

Shortly after the release she hit the road for a 6 week, 18 date national tour which included 9 dates with The McClymonts as part of their “10 years of hits” Tour. Her second single “Wherever You Are” was released in December, and has been picked up by over 50 radio stations all around Australia. It debuted at #3 on The AMPRAP charts and has been added to ABC Digital Country. The 3rd single “Still Got You” is also the title track off her new EP, which was released in January 2017.

This gifted singer-songwriter from Perth is equal parts heartfelt and catchy, Karin Page is making music that is refreshingly honest and intelligent, whilst still being a whole lot of fun.
