Stephanie Grace sings her soul away from behind her steel string guitar.

Blending clever concepts with complex rhyme schemes and cutting rhythm, Stephanie's songs and melodies bring new meaning to the term 'original'.

Switching effortlessly between downbeat groove-makers and upbeat mood-changers, she is as comfortable performing on festival stages as she is in living rooms and the cosy Sydney bars that she regulars.

In an industry flooded with auto-tune and ghostwriters, Stephanie's honesty is undeniable in the live arena. Her Debut EP 'Green Cardigan' is comforting ears around the globe with more tasty treats to follow in 2014





After devoting himself to sport through his teens, Paul Greene represented Australia at the 1996 Olympic Games in the 400m and the 4 x 400m relay and ranked 38 in the world that year. Paul won a Track and Field scholarship to the University of Southern California where he immersed himself in the study of writing and making music. As well as working for the USC radio station, Paul performed in a college band ‘Henrys Guests’ that built a huge following in LA and performed at the legendary Whisky A Go-Go where such artists as Led Zeplin, Frank Zappa, and Guns & Roses had their beginnings.

Paul Greene has an insatiable appetite for all things musical. When you see Paul performing live it is undeniable that ‘there is a remarkably special spark about him’ (Peter Fitzgerald – The Australian). He has been said by critics to be one of the best emerging songwriters this country has to offer, and compared to the likes of Neil Finn, Jack Johnson, and Paul Simon.

Greene has produced albums for, and collaborated with some of Australia’s most respected musicians like Rob Hirst (Midnight Oil); James Blundell; Greg Arnold (Things of Stone & Wood), and toured with the who’s-who of international songwriters including: Grammy nominees Ani Difranco; Alvin’Youngblood Hart’, and Patty Griffin.

Paul Greene remained independent until his collaboration with ABC in 2011 and only then because things got too much to handle on his own. With a belief in the power of community, Greene has toured relentlessly and always prided himself on ‘keeping it real’ and working at a grass roots level.

Paul Greene & The Other Colours released their single ‘Beautiful Delusion’ in 2013 through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia. It was lifted from their latest album, just released in 2014, the follow up to Paul's ARIA nomination for best Blues and Roots album of 2012.

The tragic loss of their good mate and drummer Matt Sykes in a horrific boating accident in 2012 has driven the band to continue to create, evolve and get back on the road. Do not miss Paul Greene & The Other Colours live. It’s music you’ll want to hear over and over again.


A musical assault that crosses over genres, deeply funky and seriously Phat. Their culturally diverse and influential style digs deeper and deeper in the pocket of groove and rock!

Gang of brothers have been born into music. Brothers Andro, Dauno, Fenix and Banel Martinez hail from the prestigious musical Martinez Family (Martinez Akustica). Joining them on drums and lead vocals is brother Buddy Siolo, whose talents have taken him around the globe. Together they are GANG OF BROTHERS.

G.O.B. Raved performances in the festival circuit including the Queenstown Jazz festival (New Zealand), Glebe Street fair festival 2012, Snowy Mountains Festival, Australian Blues festival and Coming up soon is the festival of the Sun 2013, Beam festival 2013,

The Debut single “Get up on ya feet n Testify” hit number one in several online charts for consecutive weeks, and was released worldwide on itunes on the 23rd of July 2013 with a video clip. The launch event sold outat the Forresters in Surry Hills. Since then Gang of Brothers has released 3 more singles.

" GOB is a full-scale assault on the senses and resistance to dancing is practically useless. And you don't have to be a funk afficionado to relate: their set comprises highly-recognisable tunes from the quality commercial end of
the spectrum. In any case we're not talking puritanical funk, as the band crosses over comfortably into the realm of hard rock (witness Andro's blistering, Hendrix-like guitar solos), in the way of Kravitz, Prince, Living
Colour; even the Isley or Neville Brothers. All-in-all, the parlance might be passé, but, as they themselves say, their music is seriously phat." Lloyd Bradford Sykes (Australian Stage)

"On their first official track, "Get Up On Ya Feet n Testify," the brothers makes me think of what would happen if JB and Lenny Kravitz randomly met in a dirty, empty bar out on a deserted road and had an impromptu jam session. Cue a band appearing from nowhere, complete with backing vocalists and suddenly the bar is packed full of punters, who all know the words to the song and are getting their very best Soul Train moves on. I do have a vivid imagination, but this track is the kind of unapologetic upbeat funk with a driving beat that makes my imagination run wild and envision unrealistic
scenes that in reality will never happen." Kitten Jam (Soulbounce.com)

"Gang OF Brothers, The New Funk Rock band that will conquer Australia" Anna Sagrista (SBS Radio)

"It's as hardcore as what might well be rated the number one funk track of all time, in JB's similarly-titled"
Lloyd Bradford Sykes (Australian Stage)
