> The Living End
The Living End are Australian rock royalty. Formed in Melbourne in 1994, the band catapulted into fame in 1997 when they released a double A-side single featuring ‘Prisoner of Society’ and ‘Second Solution’; songs that would become festival anthems around the world. The single peaked at #4 on the ARIA singles chart and was certified double platinum soon after its release. The band’s debut album would enter the ARIA chart at #1 in Australia and eventually sell over 280,000 copies. The Living End have released seven studio albums with two debuting at #1 on the ARIA chart. Four of their albums have achieved platinum sales with two more achieving gold sales in Australia. The band have won five ARIAs and been nominated 27 times.
> Birds Of Tokyo
Birds Of Tokyo's insistent, bittersweet, rock anthems have resonated deeply with Australian critics and fans. They have lit up the mainstage of festivals from Splendour In The Grass to Falls and played arenas as special guests of Muse. They’ve performed to millions on the AFL Grand Final and at the NRL’s flagship State Of Origin game. Their music has featured on film and TV and earned them multiple ARIA and APRA Awards. More than seventy of their songs have featured on Triple J and they are one of the station’s three most played artists of this millennium.
> Pete Murray
Folk-pop singer/songwriter Pete Murray emerged from relative obscurity to become one of Australia's biggest stars with his chart-topping 2003 sophomore LP, Feeler. 2017 was a massive year for Pete, with his ARIA award-nominated album Camacho debuting at number 3 on the ARIA charts, and a packed-out 33 date album tour across Australia. With over one million album sales to his name, the quiet achiever of Australian music is committed to constantly growing as an artist and offering fans new and exciting material with each release.
