Liz Stringer’s powerful and emotive live performances and melodically rich, story-based songs have earned her a place among Australia’s most respected songwriters and performers. Her last studio album ‘Warm in the Darkness’ was met with wide acclaim upon its release in August 2012 and was short-listed for the prestigious Australian Music Prize 2013.

It's already been a big year, with Liz taking her first trip to the USA for Folk Alliance International as well as a string of festivals back home including Byron Bay Blues Fest with power trio Dyson Stringer Cloher. In recent years, Liz has toured nationally with the likes of Eric Bibb, Mia Dyson, Ember Swift and Ash Grunwald, delighting audiences and festival goers around the country here and abroad.

This November Liz releases a live solo album and DVD, capturing for the first time on film the singularly moving experience of a Liz Stringer show.


Zoe has long been a favourite in Sydney’s underground intimate gig scene, playing at The Smallest Gig, Music Lounge, Sofar Sounds, High Tea, The Newsagency, Eastern Lounge and many festivals such as Peats Ridge, The National Folk, Caloundra, Manly Jazz, Manly Food & Wine, Secret Garden, Northern Beaches.

She’s toured with Matt Corby and also graced the stage with stars like soul legend Renee Geyer, Tim Finn, Jordie Lane, Dragon, The Falls and Ireland’s Declan O’Rourke.

In an industry that is consumed by image and trend, Zoe captivates audiences with raw and honest performances and songs of substance. Her style harks back to the hand crafted lyrics and intricate discordant harmonies of the ‘70s, which is probably why she’s been likened to a young Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro.

Previously seen on stage at The Fig as a solo act, this time the newly married Zoe performs with her band - Lincoln & Jeremy Smith with Jeremy Toolman.


JubiLatte is ‘coffee coloured’ gospel performed by 14 passionate professional & semi professional musos who play inspiring, uplifting Gospel music.

This is a band that has evolved over more than 10 years. The lineup comprises an outstanding 6 member vocal ensemble, backed by a painfully tight 8 piece rhythm and horn section.

JubiLatte’s members come from disparate areas – both geographical & musical.  From the Blue Mountains to the South Coast, from Jazz, Blues, Rock & Orchestral – JubiLatte always make the most of any opportunity to play together because the music they make is musically challenging for the performer, and always ‘contagiously enjoyable’ for anyone lucky enough to hear it. “I wish I had known it was going to be this good, I would have brought someone” is a common ‘complaint’!

Having members who absolutely love working together, and who can draw on experience from performing nationally & internationally, in studios, on television & stage, with performances for audiences in excess of 30,000, this band is a ‘joy to behold’.
