Alex Lahey
Alex Lahey hocked her beloved 1999 blue Corolla to pay for the recording of her debut EP. First single out of the boot was last year's Air Mail, introducing the airwaves to the Melbourne-based rock artist knack for melodic, guitar-driven hooks.

Most recently Lahey has set the music industry abuzz with the insanely catchy You Don't Think You Like People Like Me. From the attention-grabbing opening bars (those drums sound like an angry landlord thumping your front door on a Sunday morning), it flips the classic break-up line "it's not you, it's me" on its head. Upon release in March, YDTYLPLM was immediately added to rotation on triple j, started popping up on music blogs everywhere. It was then Pitchfork gave it Best New Track and got the rest of the world talking

Lahey live show has set the Australia media and fans buzzing. and 2017 will see her take that show internationally with UK and European Tour as well as showcasing at SXSW and a US tour. Couple that with her debut album, bring on 2017.

"The opening riff is a taut study in Room on Fire-era Strokes, and her writing lands somewhere between the charming specificity of Courtney Barnett and the soulful, emphatic delivery of fellow Aussie rockers Royal Headache." –Pitchfork

Liv Slingerland
Liv Slingerland
Liv Slingerland is a 22-year-old rock/pop/blues artist and guitarist/singer-songwriter who has just released the first single off of her upcoming EP. We Found New Music writes, "Liv marries 90s nostalgia and being in "the now" like a college educated, hipster-preacher in her track, "Shouldn't Bother." You SHOULD bother hitting play if you give a shit about alt rock, natural-high inducing vocals, and lyrics that keep it real in the most unpretentious way..." The remaining tracks from Liv's debut EP will be released throughout the summer.
