James Englund

James was half of the duo, Crash Symphony, which formed in 2002, signed a publishing deal in 2004, released its first album ’My Girlfriend the Assassin’ in 2005, and launched their second album ’Crash Symphony Live at The Basement’ in 2006. They featured on TV shows such as Mcleod’s Daughters, Bondi Rescue, Scout TV, and signed a distribution deal in the UK. Their music is available on over 60 different online stores including iTunes.

Now James is producing full time (at Crash Symphony studios), playing solo and playing the piano as much as he can!




A dynamic Contemporary Rockin’ Folk duo who write and perform a range of material from danceable high energy Rockin’ Folk, to tender ballads, humorous dittys and their brand of blues based acoustic rock. Josh plays an acoustic guitar with some effects and loops, sings backup vocals and plays the stomp box and foot tambourine. He provides the driving rhythms, wailing solos and catchy guitar accompaniment that Angela Smith (lead vocals and percussion) lays over her strong beautiful voice and master shaker playing. Influenced by their own Kindred, Love, Led Zeppelin and Jigzag, Swoon’s music is joyous, unpretentious and refreshing.

Playing support for Powderfinger & Silverchair on the Across the Great Divide Tour, Glen Shorrock (LRB), Deborah Conway, Andrew Morris, Dave Flower and well known Australian folk act Jigzag. The festival credits to their name are the Palm Creek (North QLD) 08, Yungaburra (Far Nth QLD) 08, 09,Wintermoon (The Whitsundays) 08, 09 and Springfest (The Whitsundays) 07.

Their excellent live show has been delighting audiences up and down the East Coast with over 7 months on the road during 2009 and no plans to slow down.

G Nunan band

G. Nunan grew up on a farm in northern Victoria playing his guitar and amp as loud as possible to the sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the like. In the mid 1990's he developed his chunky blues chops in the Melbourne music scene.

Career highlights have been jamming onstage with Deep Purple, Royal Crown Revue, Kate Ceberano, Kenny Wayne Sheppard and Bette Midler’s horn section amongst many other amazing musicians. In 2007 G. Nunan went to the U.S. and played Maggie Maes in Austin Texas. A couple of months earlier his four piece band, G. Nunan Project, did one of Australia's first online virtual sets for the SXSW Music festival.

In between playing many different venues and festivals, local and interstate, G. Nunan has been invited back to front for The Blues Machine in Singapore and has enjoyed performing in south -east Asia a number of times. The Association of Surfing Professionals have been playing G. Nunan music to the ASP world tour highlights on television for the last few years.

Currently based in Sydney his focus is on the new G.Nunan Band three-piece combo. Complete with a good dose of chunky guitar riffs and an innate ability to pull out a red-hot show, the synergy and spontaneity leaves you wanting more.








The My Tys

Blending the best elements of ska, reggae, rock and funk with incredibly catchy melodies these guys have developed an irresistibly ‘fun’ sound that is guaranteed to make people move their feet - all the way to the dance floor!

The My Tys achieved 2nd place in the final of the National Campus Band Competition 2009 just three months after forming. They have now progressed to regular gigs at venues such as The Basement and the Beach Rd Hotel, and have played pretty much all of the major university campuses across NSW at least once. They have also performed live and received airplay on ABC radio. Some favourable comparisons the band has received include The Cat Empire, Madness, and even Stevie Wonder!

The songs are short and snappy, the horn lines are infectious, and the vocal melodies refuse to leave your head! So… check us out! We’re all about good times, great tunes and not so good dancing. Why wouldn’t we be? What else is there?
