MOJO JUJU – 2018 saw Mojo Juju drop her biggest album yet – “Native Tongue” – collecting a slew of accolades – 15 award nominations (including 3 x ARIA nominations) and taking home a healthy bundle of awards, including the J Award for ‘Best Music Video’ and the Dreamtime Award for ‘Best Female Artist’. She has played at festivals including Bluesfest, PANAMA, St Kilda Fest, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Perth International Arts Festival, WOMADelaide, VIVID, Taronga & Melbourne Zoo Twilights and The Gum Ball. “One of the most thematically vital Australian Albums of the year.” – The Australian VIDEO LINK
ELLA HOOPER – Known as the technicolor teenage frontwoman of her high school band ‘Killing Heidi’, Ella is now making her mark as a solo artist making intelligent pop music. She is also a radio host, TV presenter, and DJ. A seasoned pro with an assortment of gun players backing her, she bends herself into contortionist positions, punching out notes that fly and defy, or lays herself over the fold back, delivering a verse hanging over the edge. A great show on display. Needless to say, the chemistry between her and her fans is still impossible to fracture.” – GlamAdelaide VIDEO LINK
ALANA JAGT – Captivating audiences with her dynamic, warmly-weathered voice, Alana’s work blends indie pop and rock with moody alt-country and a Motown groove. Since releasing her debut EP “Wilderness” (2017), Alana has played acclaimed festivals such as Handpicked Festival and the Adelaide Guitar Festival. She’s also supported the likes of Didirri, Mick Thomas, Abbe May and Kasey Chambers. One to watch on the SA music scene. VIDEO LINK

The multi-dimensional performer is forging forward to solidify her status as Australia’s newest first lady of R&B. “A bold new voice, making rad music and tackling relevant issues while she’s at it.” – Pilerats VIDEO LINK
