Soul singer/song-writer Adrian Eagle was born & raised in Adelaide, South Australia. Eagle vocalises over reggae, soul, hip-hop & acoustic flavoured beats, sharing his journey of overcoming mental health issues. Eagle targets and addresses depression and suicide when weighing a life-threatening 270kg when he was just 17yrs old, unapologetically addressing an everyday problem within our community. Eagle’s music hopes to help other kids battling mental health issues with his message of self-love & positivity.
21-year-old, Melbourne-based artist Poppy Rose prides herself on her story-telling abilities and her capacity to connect with her audience by focusing on the human fundamentals of truth and love.
With her distinct, melodic flow she raps and sings over deliberately simple beats to get her message across. Meanwhile, her penchant for using organic instruments in her production envelops the listener with its rich, varied sounds – creating sweeping, cinematic atmospheres.
Rhys John writes reflective and sometimes melancholy songs informed by memories, fond and less so, of late nights and bleary-eyed mornings he’s collected throughout the era of lingering near-adulthood that typifies modern-day coming of age. Influenced by storytellers the likes of Justin Townes Earl and Gillian Welch his music draws on the time-honoured musical traditions of Alt-Country and Americana to bring his narrative to life.
