The Middle Names pack an indie-rock punch. Big choruses you can sing too, thumping drums you can stomp too, and searing guitars that jump off stage and slap you in the face.  Take from their forthcoming debut album, lead single ‘Full Friends’ has garnered rave reviews; now take a sneak peak listen to ‘My Brother & I’ on their website.


Pete Cornelius & the DeVilles


Pete Cornelius has grown up as far away from the Delta as possible. He has never picked cotton, never hitched a ride on a freight train or traded with the devil. Yet his rockin’ roots and rhythm n’ blues tastes like crossroad dust & feel like hot tarmac on route 66. Born in Tasmania, Australia, isolation has forced an original approach to all styles of his music, from its creation to the modern-day.

  • Sam Cole and the Mornings


Australia quickly started to wake up to Samuel Cole and The Mornings, with the Hobart indie band turned plenty of heads on their tours in recent years. After being selected by Triple J to learn from top Australian musicians Gotye and Adalita, frontman Sam Cole took their advice on board and returned to Hobart to write and record Ribbons at the Oscar Treehouse studio in the Mt Wellington foothills. The Mornings comprises Tasmanian musicians Samuel Cole, Benjamin Cole, Anna Elliston, Devereux, Jeremy Kearney and Seth Henderson who launched the band in mid-2010.

The band has toured Australia supporting acts including Cloud Control, Trial Kennedy, Eagle and the Worm, and Dappled Cities as well as being featured in Amplified, Tasmania's premier music showcase.
The Mornings' front man Samuel Cole was invited by Triple J Unearthed, as well as APRA and AMCOS to showcase The Mornings' music at Song Summit 2012.

  • Christopher Coleman Collective



  • Australian singer-songwriter Christopher Coleman captures an audience with his evocative folk narratives, crowd-silencing vocals, and a jovial rock ’n’ roll showman performance. Citing inspirations from Flanagan, Whitman, Kelly, Dylan, Cohen and more, Christopher’s tranquil vocal and warm acoustic sounds present his well-woven storybook of songs, charming audiences with sweet melodies, sing-a-longs and affable stories.

The Christopher Coleman Collective made The Mercury’s Tasmania's TOP TEN 2012 The PERFORMERS. The Mercury said: What an outstanding year for this young and talented band. The outfit, which belts out an honest, folky pubrock, secured a gig at this summer's Falls Festival and was the Mercury's foster band. The band's tune Dandelion Flower won the praise of Triple J music director Dave Ruby Howe, who was impressed by the imagery-filled storytelling. The future awaits this exciting collective.


Blues explosion from Launceston-based duo Guthrie.

Guthrie (drummer Luke Young and guitarist-singer Liam Guthrie) have being making heads turn and feet stomp since late 2008, playing their blend of swamp blues, rock and hardcore . They were a big hit at their first Falls Festival 10 at Marion Bay, and have performed at many other festivals across the state including the Jackeys Marsh Forest Festival, the Forth Valley Blues Festival, the Rosebery Music Festival, and the Adventure Bay Blues and Roots Festival on Bruny Island.

The Sin & Tonics


The band has always held the same aim in mind, to instill the intensity and engagement of a punk rock show whilst blending the diversity of styles of an era since past. Taking surf, country and punk rock along with heavy Rockabilly swing and that great Gretsch sound, the band create an experience that is an infectious blend inspiring the devil in us all to come out and play.

Dark Matter of Story Telling



Sonic explorers and conceptual creators, Dark Matter of Story Telling mesh dynamic sounds with enigmatic and evocative storytelling. They released their debut EP ‘The Battle With Self’ earlier this year, led by the Taiko drum featuring single ‘Walking For Days’ that was placed in a video of World Champion Kelly Slater surfing the sets at Shipsterns Bluff; a video syndicated globally to receive over a million views.

Artist Image - KOWL



Recently KOWL released his first independent EP with four fun electonica pop tracks he has produced himself. The music is original and different to anything the Hobart artist has done before.
He says: ``It's a bit of disco, it's funky and sexy with a bit of sax.' '
KOWL is the pseudonym of Hobart songwriter and musician Cal Young, who began his music career as half of popular local electro-synth group The Scientists of Modern Music with classmate and friend Simon McIntosh.
Now Young is working independently, which he said was both liberating and challenging.
Scientists were known for their energetic and engaging live performances at festivals such as Falls, Pyramid Rock, Meredith and Golden Plains. They also received Triple J rotation for their single Easy.
Following great national exposure, they went on to support Midnight Juggernauts, The Presets and Dukes of Windsor nationally.
Following the break from the Scientists, he began working with Hobart singer-songwriter, Asta. While still writing, recording and touring with Asta, Youngs's love for electronic-synth production has led him to create KOWL, his first independent musical endeavour.
Earlier this year he spent time in the US promoting his work to publishers and record labels. He hopes to tour there next year after successful gigs in LA and Portland.
