Simon Marks

“Trying to pigeonhole Simon Mark’s music is not an easy task; with songs ranging from rock to roots, via folk and blues, the sheer diversity of this performer is one of his greatest attributes. Currently residing in Fremantle, this ex-Canadians latest release: “Fight the Good Fight” recorded with a single microphone is a raw and honest album of great beauty – which will touch the hearts of all lucky enough to hear it.” (PCM)

Tom Richardson, Olivia Ruth and Sleepy West

Olivia Ruth

Olivia Ruth creates a sassy raw vocal mix that leaves audiences asking... who is Olivia Ruth?

Armed with her stomp box and acoustic guitar she creates a swag of in-set jaw-dropping moments, reminiscent of Kate Miller Heidke, Claire Bowditch and Missy Higgins.
