Fronted by legendary roots man Ras Roni from Barbados via London, Fijian LTL GZeus and Sierra Leonian Blaka C, The Strides deliver a musical experience that is as powerfully explosive as it is authentic. With three acclaimed albums under their belt and festival appearances across the country The Strides’ music faithfully builds on the foundations of classic roots reggae with a hip-hop edge, forging a sound that brings together modern dance hall, dub beats and reggae-pop.
Formed in early 2017, The Sweet Valentinos have quickly earned a reputation as one of the South Coast’s favourite musical acts. Melodies seasoned with percussion, double bass, violin, loads of harmonies and the jangle of a piano. Ragged rural rhythms and dreamy beatnik undertones. Their music is a wide open field under a summer afternoon. The Sweet Valentinos. Right in the Pocket of Love.
Enchanting indie-folkstress of the Great Ocean Road, Melody’s nature-inspired songs set your heart soaring. Reflecting the environment in which she creates, you’ll be drawn into powerful flowing vocals, stirring lyrics and rising undercurrents of guitar, ukulele, violin and cello. Her songs have enjoyed top 10 success on the Amrap AirIt Charts being widely played on radio across Australia. “Just Wonderful” – Sophie Longden, ABC radio. Joined by 12yr old music marvel Acarya Moon, the pair create an atmosphere of once-off magic.
