Based in Tasmania, Emma Anglesey’s haunting and catchy debut single Bike saw her become a Triple J Unearthed Spotlight Artist. Emma’s second single Mary-Anne premiered in Tone Deaf in November 2016 and has received rave reviews. Triple J Unearthed music director Dave Ruby Howe gave the track “4 STARS” and Rolling Stone Australia said “Mary-Anne is a song that flourishes in its delicacy but is punctured with grit.”
Emma’s music combines dark pop and folk. Both Mary-Anne and Bike are from Emma’s forthcoming record which was produced and mixed by Nashville-based Australian music producer Josh Barber (Gotye, Archie Roach) along with Nicholas Lam who co-mixed. Of working with Emma, Joshua said,
I met Emma at a small folk festival in Tasmania and she was one of the stand-out writers I heard there so I told her I’d love to work with her. Emma’s songs are thematically articulate, with visual and almost tactile lyrics that I really enjoyed working to and selecting sounds that build towards these emotional environments.”
Australian singer/songwriter and producer Topher Morrey made the deliberate move from ‘big city’ Melbourne to wild Tasmania to slow the pace and ground his Soul/Groove sound into something more gritty.
Joining up with good friends and fellow Tasmanians Greg Heart, Matt Deakin and Justin Orr they’ve found their soulful funk flow, peppered it with a hint of melancholy Blues, and packed it full of heart felt flavour … meet Mocane.
THE SCARY FAMILY BAND
The Scary Family Band spans ages 7 to 56 and plays hillbilly, old-time, jug, early jazz, Istrian folk, and blues music with occasional sci-fi overtones. They have wrangled saws, ukes, mandolins, banjos, harmonicas, dancing jig dolls, double bass and slide whistles everywhere from Killiecrankie (Flinders Island) to Koper (Slovenia)!
