-- Grand Baxter --

The Grand Baxter story began in mid-2017 as a welcome distraction from other projects for singer-songwriter Ben Langdon. He was quickly joined by Dylan Knur (Parkville) on violin. Their songs dance between the lyrically intense and the playfully pretty, watermarked with a musicality and intent driven by their individual jazz, rock and country influences. Inspired by artists such as James Taylor, David Ramirez and Dawes, Grand Baxter are best described as 'a bold hamper of charisma, musicality and Americana charm.'

-- Riley Catherall --

Riley Catherall is an Americana influenced singer songwriter who manages to deliver a partnership of arresting lyricism and traditional and modern folk and country sounds, illustrated on his latest EP "Venture In Vain" and at his captivating live shows.

-- Miller --

Intimate, original and gritty. Miller is a solo acoustic act hailing from the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. A comedic and charming performer with a flair for storytelling, Miller writes emotionally honest lyrics with poetic simplicity. Growing up listening to a combination of funk, R&B and 70s American folk, Miller’s style is what might happen if the spirit of Michael Jackson produced a Damien Rice record.
