ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
HOODOO GURUS – Last year marked an extraordinary milestone for the Hoodoo Gurus; 30 years since the release of the band’s debut single, “Leilani”. To celebrate, the Gurus compiled all their biggest hits and fan favourites onto a best-of set, aptly titled “Gold Watch: 20 Golden Greats”. It included “What’s My Scene?”, “I Want You Back”, “Miss Freelove ‘69”, “Like Wow – Wipeout!”, “The Right Time”, “Bittersweet”, “Come Anytime”, “My Girl”, “1000 Miles Away”, “Waking Up Tired”, tracks that represent the unmistakable sound of the irrepressible Hoodoo Gurus. In 2007 the group was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. Their live performances are second to none.
YOU AM I – The stats read well: 12 records, 3 # 1’s, 9 ARIAs…32 nominations, live music awards and nearing 2,000 shows all over the globe. In celebration of their 20th year as a band, their first three albums “Sound As Ever”, “Hi Fi Way” and “Hourly Daily” have been reissued to huge acclaim. Come and check the kings of swagger!
THE WHITLAMS – Their appeal reaches audiences of all ages and tastes. With lyrics described as having a ‘charming cynicism’ and enhanced by an instinct for poignant melody, the Tim Freedman-led Whitlams have become a staple of the Australian music scene. They won Best Group at the 1998 ARIA Awards, as well as Song of the Year and Best Independent Release for their 3rd album “Eternal Nightcap”. The current lineup has remained unchanged for the last 10 years and four albums.
DAVE GRANEY & THE MISTLY – This latest incarnation in the always colorful career of Dave Graney and partner-in-crime Clare Moore is called The mistLY. The new name accompanied the 2012 album ‘You’ve Been On My Mind’, Dave’s fourth album in as many years. Three decades, 20 plus albums, two books and countless gigs later, Dave remains as eclectic and entertaining as ever.
RAINY DAY WOMEN – These five fellows from Perth have a knack for melody and sundrenched ditties reminiscent of The Beach Boys and Fleetwood Mac. They make bright savvy music of the pop variety. The band was nominated for the Breakthrough Act and Most Promising New Act at the 2012 WAMI Awards.
