Brian Campeau is a Sydney musician known for his stylistic boundary pushing. Blending acoustic music with electronic sounds, odd time signatures and left-field arrangements, Brian has never been easy to describe in single-word terms. He is fine with that.
Nic Cassey & Friends
Nic Cassey & Friends create sadly beautiful portraits of love and life on the margins with the moody depth of Nick Drake and the country-influenced textures of Andrew Bird.
Swamp Fat Jangles
The Swamp Fat Jangles sound emanates from the bayou in a secret swamp near Sydney's South West. Their tales are performed in a raw alt-folk sound, with poetic harmonising female vocals atop the rhythms of banjo, guitar, bass and drums accompanied by bendy blues harp and trumpet.
Swamp Fat Jangles have enchanted audiences across the east coast with their distinctive brand of seductive electric folk, playing on stages such as the Vanguard & Venue 505 and festivals like Peats Ridge and Newtown Festival.
eüsh creates alt-country experimental-folk rock, cinematic baroque-pop, mysterious-sea-shanty's. The use of their very experimental version of song writing and sound aesthetics brings the uniqueness which they are known for, and their sound can be meditative whilst melodic. Having toured in the US from 2012 to 2014, eüsh are now busy back in Australia touring in Victoria, Brisbane and New South Wales.
