The Australian String Quartet (ASQ) is launching its digital streaming platform ASQ Live + On Demand, and kicks off its online content delivery with a series of weekly live-streamed webisodes, titled ASQ Live at UKARIA on 2 August.

More than just a live-streamed concert, the ASQ Live at UKARIA series mixes lifestyle programming and live-performance with splash of sports broadcast excitement. Ever wondered what really happens in the wings before the performance? Here’s your backstage pass.

Hosted by the charismatic Johanna Allen and featuring a raft of world-class South Australian guest artisans including luthiers, street-artists, chefs and entrepreneurs as well as acclaimed pianist Konstantin Shamray, the ASQ’s first major foray into the world of live streamed and on-demand content will promote an exquisite South Australian life-style experience to a world-wide audience.

“I am truly delighted to be hosting ASQ Live at UKARIA. My task is to share the human side of this experience. I’m interested in getting to know Dale, Francesca, Steve and Sharon away from the music, as much as their persona within the quartet. This project gives us all a chance to explore art from a human perspective. We get a joyous marriage – music from one of Australia’s most renowned classical acts, intertwined with who they are as people.” Series host Johanna Allen

Filmed at the iconic UKARIA Cultural Centre in the Adelaide Hills, the webisodes not only provide a world-class live musical experience, they pair artistic exploration with the South Australian landscape – providing a stunning accompaniment to the performance programs. The artistry extending beyond the stage, the ASQ has engaged multi award-winning Cinematographer Maxx Corkindale as the series’ Director of Photography, allowing the viewer unprecedented visual access to the performances, ensuring the streams will look as good as they sound.

“What’s more delicious than a mixture art, lifestyle and the natural world, wrapped within a program of stunning music? We can’t wait to start performing again!” Dale Barltrop, Australian String Quartet Violin.

Before You Check Out; Nathan Cavaleri Is Back With Impressive New Music

Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Nathan Cavaleri Artist

Before You Check Out; Nathan Cavaleri Is Back With Impressive New Music

Nathan Cavaleri is back and set to release his first solo album, Demons (out August 6) since being signed to Michael Jackson’s label at age twelve, today sharing his affecting new single, 

 Before You Check Out , an introspective song with a deeply important message and a suitably poignant film clip 

Cavaleri will be celebrating the release of his new album with a national tour and recently announced on the first Bluesfest 2021 lineup.  

This is an artist with an incredible story to tell, so it’s fitting that ABC’s Australian Story will in early August be airing an episode detailing Nathan Cavaleri’s extraordinary life.  Picking up a guitar and learning enough basic skills from his Dad to play along with his favourite blues albums at just three years old, Nathan was playing electric guitar by five and had played his first gig by six – a 90 minute busking set in front of his Mother’s coffee shop that saw him take home $270.  Soon after, Nathan was diagnosed and treated for leukaemia, and the Starlight Foundation set up a meeting with his hero Mark Knopfler, attracting the attention of the media and soon after, a host of Aussie music icons.  By age ten, Nathan was making regular appearances on Hey Hey It’s Saturday and had toured the country extensively playing sold out arenas with Jimmy Barnes and Diesel, by twelve he’d toured the world and played with BB King, Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, and had made guest appearances on all the big American TV talk shows, he even performed for the Clintons during their time in office.  He was pursued by Prince and Madonna, and a bidding war ensued, with Nathan eventually signing to Michael Jackson’s MJJ Records.  

Soon after, seven years after his diagnosis, Nathan was given a clean bill of health at age thirteen.  He recorded a bunch of records, starred in Camp Nowhere – a Disney film alongside Jessica Alba – and even appeared in an episode of Baywatch alongside The Hoff, and after one final tour with BB King, Nathan decided to take a break.  

He came back to Australia and started a blues rock band with Col Hatcham from The Screaming Jets, dropping releases and touring extensively before suffering adrenal fatigue and severe anxiety which spiraled into depression and saw Nathan step away from the stage.  He’s since taken a number of years to work on his health, has dealt with and learned to manage his personal demons and has a newfound appreciation for his unique story. And now Nathan is back and ready to unleash his unique and commanding new music on the world.  

 View: mini doco on Nathan’s life 

New single 
Before You Check Out is a discreetly powerful song with gloriously sanguine finger picking, emotive slide guitar and Nathan’s effortless, velvety voice holding a warmth and tenderness that sits perfectly atop simple and effective instrumentation. Written for a cousin who lost his battle with mental illness a few years ago, Nathan explains, I strongly identified with what he went through and wished I had reached out to him. Having battled my own demons, I wondered whether my experience would have helped. I contemplated what I’d share if time could show mercy. I would share how our thoughts and beliefs colourise our experience and skew our perception of the world, giving us a false sense of reality – a notion that helped me to expose the root of many of my physical and mental health issues that were mistakenly believed to be out of my control.
Complemented by a 
film clip that highlights the sentiment of the song – that our views of the world can be tainted by projections of our past – the video further reveals the intense authenticity of the artist, with Nathan taking centre stage, vulnerabilities laid bare. 

The Demons album boasts a diverse mix of songs from the impressive guitarist and vocalist who manages to bend genres, cleverly intertwining blues with indie rock pop and soul to create a vintage modern sound of his own, that ‘Nathan Cavaleri’ sound.  And his talents don’t stop there, with most of the album produced, engineered and mixed by Nathan himself, excluding five tracks that were co-produced and mixed by Tony Buchen (Montaigne, The Preatures), and mastered by Viking Lounge.

 “What matters to me most is that I have a body of work that expresses messages that I’m deeply passionate about on a bed of music that is built on a lifetime of writing, recording and touring,” insights Nathan.  “The bulk of Demons was created during a time when I didn’t believe that I’d be mentally and physically stable enough to return to the stage. All songs were written from a place of catharsis. Lyrical themes range from antidotes for the depressed to my fascination for the more taboo side of desire. All falling one way or another under the theme of how humans crumble, melt, face, overpower, surrender, run or dance with our Demons.” 

Eager to make his way around the country on tour, Nathan explains what fans can expect from his shows, saying, “In contrast to my younger years as a performer, the Demons tour will see me connecting to audiences in an intimate story-telling type of way. As a kid I had something to play, now I have something to say. My set will be strung together with epic and incredulous stories of growing up on the road, to how my connection to music deepened when I was battling Leukaemia as a kid, to the lessons I had to learn in more recent years dealing with mental health demons. Light and shade of the set mirrors the extreme dynamics of life experiences which I try to express in a raw and relatable way.”

Demons will be released on August 6

Highway Solos Musicians Unite for Italy’s Covid 19 Disaster







Highway Solos Musicians Unite for Italy’s Covid 19 Disaster

Covid 19 Fundraiser



We have always thought that music unites.

In every area, in every genre, in every situation, Music is inspiration, Music has the power to raise us above human events, Music gives wings to our hopes …
And the hope is what we all hold on to today, so that we can return to our lives as soon as possible and defeat this health emergency that is upsetting and destroying our lives.

But to do this, there is also a need for the desire and commitment of each of us, because only all together we are strong, united and we can fight and win.

With “HIGHWAY SOLOS”, Elevate Records wanted to engage in a beneficial project with some of the best Italian musicians, physically divided but spiritually united and connected to each other, in a song that is an imaginary journey along one of the hundred highways that connect our wonderful country .
Today more than ever, we gather around those who are indomitable in trying to save lives, amid a thousand difficulties and lack of tools and means to deal with this pandemic in an adequate way; for this reason all the musicians involved in “HIGHWAY SOLOS” propose to raise funds in favor of the SACCO hospital in Milan,ITALY,  committed to the forefront of the virus emergency, by purchasing the piece that bears its name for this project on the digital stores and through the company.

This massive collaboration, in which each person involved gave their contribution completely free of charge, was carried out in a very short time in order to be able to contribute as quickly as possible to face a terrible and unexpected danger.

Through this passage you will be able to carve out an emotional space in which to travel, in which to feel only positive vibrations, in which to perceive that united you can really make a difference in a moment when you need one another, even from a distance.



Musicians in order of appearance:

Stefano Sebo Xotta
Nicola Denti
Simone Gianlorenzi
Luca Colombo
Matteo Brigo
Fabrizio Bicio Leo-Bis
Marco Sfogli
Francesco Corapi
Andy Martongelli
Mistheria (keyboards )
Roberto Fasciani(bass)
Valerio Lucantoni


The realization of the song, from video to audio, was carried out completely remotely, each in its isolation due to the quarantine, but the result shows that it is possible to stay united and make projects even with the strength of volotà and desire to do and be together.

DONATE – GO FUND ME: https://www.gofundme.com/f/highway-solos-raccolta-fondi

Or via the video description on YouTube you can find other ways to donate, what you can, from financial help to a simple word of mouth.

In Italy in this period we say : ANDRA TUTTO BENE  (Everything will be fine)

We are united, Fight The Virus


Project conceived and coordinated by:
Francesco Corapi  (chitarrista, compositore, speaker Radiofonico, collaboratore  www.metal.it)
Guglielmo Malusardi Tinti (giornalista musicale, esperto di chitarrismo )
con la collaborazione di
Mauro Matteucci  (Elevate Records, produzione, mix, master)
Pino Magliani (Elevate Records, speaker radiofonico )

Start Selling Merch Immediately At The Merch Desk








An all-Australian print-on-demand, drop shipping solution for gigging artists. No cost and no bulk buying involved. Artists create their profile, upload a design/s and their fans can start buying merch immediately!

Artists Sign Up Here:  https://themerchdesk.com.au/


Now, more than ever, there is a huge need for fans to be supporting their favourite artists by getting their merch. Across the world, the message has been received and fans are trying to do their part, but what about the bands who don’t already have merch amidst this crisis?

Joseph Knox-Wheeler, the Brisbane-based musician and now founder of The Merch Desk (launching Friday March 27) has the solution for artists and musicians to help them start selling merch within hours. Wheeler states:

“The Merch Desk is designed to remove all barriers that would otherwise stop artists offering merch to their fans and supporters. The Merch Desk costs nothing to get started and with their help artists can be selling to their fans in hours not weeks.”

Each artist is given a profile. The designs are then uploaded and prices are set to whatever they’d like. Artists are shown the cost of each item and the profit that would be made from each item. All they have to do then is send their fans to The Merch Desk.

Wheeler has teamed up with the Brisbane-based company, The Print Barwho process, print and ship the merch directly to the customer within 3-5 business days. This means no waste, no upfront costs and no financial risks for artists.

Description Of How Printing Works

In this crisis, Wheeler’s only goal is to help Australian artists, this is why they only retain $1 from each item sold to cover website and running costs.

This means, that the average profit from a shirt (Small to X-large) sold at $30 is just over $20. $20 to the artist, $1 to The Merch Desk and the rest to cover the cost of producing the merch to The Print Bar.

Furthermore, artists who are stuck for designs, The Merch Desk has them covered too. Wheeler has partnered with Jimmy Patch , a Brisbane-based illustrator and graphic designer who can help artists get awesome designs completed, so they can start selling merch as soon as possible.

That’s not all though, there is more good news. This new platform isn’t just for musicians, this is for any creative out there, from designers, illustrators, comedians, or anyone who lives off gig culture!


Artists can sign up to The Merch Desk ahead of the launch via the sign-up form at https://themerchdesk.com.au/, or by email at: joseph@themerchdesk.com.au

Corona Sessions: Chart-topping Musician Raises Funds For Local Businesses “By Request”







Indie Artist


The 2020 outbreak of COVID-19 aka Corona Virus has had far-reaching consequences for more than just those directly infected by the virus. With communities being turned into literal ghost towns, due to statewide-mandated shutdowns and stay-at-home orders, local business owners have been among those hardest hit by the pandemic.

Musicians have also been greatly affected, with cancelled shows and entire tours being put on hold. Many performers have taken to online shows to reach their fans and earn some much-needed income. One Kansas City-based musician has decided to utilize this online technology to do what he can to help the local business community.

Chart-topping Americana and Folk artist, Bill Abernathy has started the “Corona Virus Sessions” at his William’s Wonderland Of Wood studios. Bill explains,

I live in the Kansas City market, and frequent the local businesses here regularly. They supply most of my food and entertainment, as well as great conversations and relationships with interesting entrepreneurial people. I am concerned about their ability to survive in these trying times.”

Bill continues,

“I was talking with my daughter Kristen, discussing ways to help support these vital businesses and have a little fun while doing it. We came up with the ‘William’s Wonderland of Wood Coronavirus Sessions.’ We are asking our fans to send me song requests. I will play their requests and video the songs, while we are all social distancing. I will make your video, and you make a donation to a business of your choice. Order take out, buy a gift card, purchase something from their web site, etc. I would also like you to send me the name of the business your supporting to help them gain a little free advertising as well.”

Requests will be taken, and videos will be posted through Bill’s facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/billabernathysingersongwriter/

The performance will be a $5.00AUD admission ($6.36AUD with the booking fee) and will be streamed on Facebook Live (in a private group I’ll add you to).

BUT ALSO! If parting with any cash at the moment is out of the question, Ella will be offering a FREE ticket option. “Do don’t worry I’ve got you”, says Ella. There’s also an opportunity to pay extra if want to and feel you can. 

“Let’s say no to feelings of separation and loneliness in these isolating times and stick together through the uncertainty and anxiety. So curl up on the couch or dance around your living room with me, let’s do this together. xxx”

Music Festivals Hit Hard by Coronavirus: This Startup Has the Data







Music Festival


With the coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc across the world, music festivals are announcing cancelations or postponing dates on a daily basis. This puts economic strain on not only the performing artists, event organizers, and the teams involved, but also on anyone with flights, hotels, and festival tickets already booked and paid for months in advance, now struggling to get info in time to get their bookings refunded. To help everyone stay on top of things, Slovenia-based music data company Viberate has put together a comprehensive list at www.sickfestivals.com, updated daily.

The service monitors around 5,000 festivals worldwide and lets you know which ones are canceled or postponed, so you can plan accordingly. The data is sourced from Viberate’s massive global database of artists, venues, events, and festivals. Currently, they’ve identified 141 canceled and 185 postponed festivals.

The idea for Sick Festivals came when one of the startup’s founders, renowned techno DJ UMEK, started getting an avalanche of show cancellations: 

“Just a week ago, I played on the Resistance stage at Ultra in Melbourne and Sydney, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. When I landed back home and turned my phone back on, most of my upcoming gigs had already disappeared from my calendar. That was when I realized how serious this outbreak had become in a matter of days. It feels eerily dystopian. Now it’s up to us to do whatever we can to manage the damage. At Viberate, we quickly put together a service that we hope will help people see what’s going on with the festival they had been planning to visit, and shed a light onto the industry professionals’ income loss, which is no laughing matter.

Composer/Pianist Juan Sanchez Launches Piano Music YouTube Playlist







Pianist and Composer Juan Sánchez Launches a Piano Music With Nature Landscapes YouTube Playlist To Awaken A Sense Of Awe And Appreciation For The Earth

Neo Classical Ambient Music Composer


Barcelona based pianist and composer Juan Sánchez has started uploading a series of videos on his YouTube channel showcasing nature scenery with his music playing in the background. Each video is related to one type of nature scenery (i.e: oceans, mountains, skies, etc..) while one of his compositions is playing in the background.

Juan says that images can deepen our emotional response to music, they are part of our visual language — a significant part of the culture of our consumption of music, art and entertainment and they are also a great way to spend five minutes in the afternoon.

The idea behind this series of videos is that while Juan Sánchez gets a chance to get his music heard by a wider audience, he also provides listeners with beautiful landscapes of our natural world in the hope to awaken a sense of awe and appreciation for our earth. In his own words:

“Our natural world is alive with beauty and wonder. It is important for our peace of mind and our enthusiasm for life to love the world we live in and care for the earth and all living things. I hope that these videos will awaken a sense of awe and appreciation for our earth so that we can live in greater harmony with it.”


New videos are added every week.

You can watch a full playlist of all of them on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzbfowJFLyKTbdb9WKNs6wJZLkjt7netl

The Methadones Announce Upcoming European and US Tour









Punk Band


 The Methadones   are returning to Chicago after five years to play Chop Shop (2033 W North Ave, Chicago, IL 60647) with  Direct Hit!,  Dan Vapid and The Cheats , and  Capgun Heroes on Saturday, June 27th. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10am.

Tickets:  https://link.dice.fm/3Z9U2Z6js4
Facebook Event: http://bit.ly/CS-RSVP-TheMethadones

The Methadones formed in 1993 by guitarist/vocalist Dan Schafer, AKA, Dan Vapid. The band lasted a few shows before Dan put the side project on the backburner to focus on his main band, Screeching Weasel. In 1994, Screeching Weasel disbanded and Dan Schafer and former bandmate, Ben Foster, traded off lead vocal duties with their new project, The Riverdales. It seemed that The Methadones would never come to fruition. By 1999, Schafer was no longer a member of Screeching Weasel or The Riverdales, and became determined to restart The Methadones with B-Face of The Queers on bass, and Dan Lumley on drums. The band recorded their first album, Ill at Ease, in 2001. After the recording, B-Face and Lumley left the band and Schafer formed a new lineup of The Methadones with guitarist Mike Byrne, bassist Pete Mittler, and drummer Mike Soucy.

In 2003, the band would begin their most prolific period, releasing four albums in five years. Career Objective came first via Thick Records, followed by Not Economically Viable, also on Thick, in 2004. In 2006, the band moved to Red Scare and released 21st Century Power Pop Riot. The next year they issued This Won’t Hurt…, also via Red Scare. 

They released a split album with The Copyrights in 2008, but by the summer of 2010, The Methadones announced that they were breaking up. Later that year they would release a self-titled compilation album on Asian Man Records, which featured five new songs. 

Since then, The Methadones have played only two shows, (one in 2011 and another in 2015). Now they’re back for the first time in nearly five years and have announced four upcoming shows. The first is on May 29th at Red Flag in St. Louis, MO. After that, they’ll play Chop Shop in Chicago on June 27th. Then the band heads to Italy for Punk Rock Raduno and Germany for Back To Future Festival, both of which take place in July.

The current lineup features Dan Vapid, Simon Lamb on guitar, Mike Soucy on drums, and Pete Mittler on bass.

5/29 @ Red Flag: St Louis, MO w/ Hospital Job
6/27 @ Chop Shop: Chicago, IL w/ Direct Hit!

Shaggy to Speak at the 7th Annual Jamaica Music Conference (JMC) During Reggae Month








JMC Logo

Plans for Reggae Month in Jamaica this February are shaping up quite nicely. And amidst an amazing line up of dedicated events, activities and celebrations is the Jamaica Music Conference, aka JMC, which takes place in Kingston, Jamaica, February 13-16, 2020, under the central theme of “Reggae Mek’ka Jamaica: Vision 2020.

Via illustrious partnerships with the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association (JARIA), Solid Agency, and other industry stakeholders, JMC has notably solidified its place in Jamaica’s famed Reggae Month landscape and calendar and has expanded its offerings respectively, promising Reggae music industry professionals, artists and creatives an intense and enhanced, multifaceted program. Moreover, Reggae entertainment stalwart Sharon Burke’s involvement as co-producer has yielded a wealth of increased industry, corporate and artist participation and partnership including the addition of giant music streaming platform Youtube to the program.

“This partnership was inevitable as Solid Agency has stood strong as a forerunner in the entertainment industry for years. We could not pass up an opportunity to partner with JMC to further contribute to the most far reaching aspect of Jamaica’s culture, the music”, states Solid Agency founder and CEO, Sharon Burke.


With more than 30 panel discussions, workshops, plenaries, networking opportunities, entertainment showcases, artist features, exhibitions and special events planned, the 7th Annual JMC will provide invaluable information, tools, tips and opportunities to advance its audience both individually and collectively. As a part of its mission and shared vision with JARIA and other Reggae Month partners, JMC has implemented content that will help inform and contribute to the health and wealth of Reggae music as a whole.



Internationally renowned music producer and DJ Walshy Fire is a speaker at the JMC Youth Summit.

While highlighting Jamaica as the “Reggae Mecca,” the JMC will place its cultural lens on the nation’s Vision 2030 plan in an effort to determine direction and how the music will lead the way.

“Vision 2030 is an excellent roadmap to Jamaica’s nation building, and We the organizers of the JMC, deem it necessary to highlight it during this milestone year that is 2020,” says Kareece Lawrence, Jamaica-based JMC Conference Coordinator.

“The industry-trusted workshops, panels and activities are celebrated staples of the JMC,” says Kwasi Bonsu Esq., JMC Co-founder and Washington, DC based member of the diaspora.

“But through an expanded mission, exciting new partnerships and increased performance showcases, the JMC will attract a wider audience of music industry professionals and entrepreneurs.”

A host of superstar guests and music industry luminaries are confirmed for the exciting schedule, with a series of special announcements planned for the weeks leading up to the JMC. Even before the official news alerts, industry insiders have already started buzzing over the participation of renowned music producer and DJ Walshy Fire at the JMC Youth Summit on Thursday, February 13. Involvement of popular DJ, sound system and Canadian radio personality Spex Da Boss and notable others are also an added plus.

From maximizing and monetizing Reggae consumption via streaming platforms, local/global marketing and branding, music publishing, mainstream success of music, the impact of social media, defining and visualizing Jamaica as a “Reggae Mecca” to legal consultation, the multitude of panel topics, among a host of others, will speak to the pressing and diverse needs of the audience.

New to the revitalized conference is “JMC Emerge: Artist Showcase Series,” which weaves six hours of solid performances from emerging artists through-out the 4-day conference. Special events such as the JMC Youth Summit, Irie Jam Celebrity Football Match and the JMC Jamnesia Artist Showcase are also some of the conference’s planned annual attractions.

Participation from what reads like a who’s who of the Reggae music industry during past JMC stagings includes Marcia Griffiths “Queen of Reggae”, Protojé, Junior Reid, Kabaka Pyramid, Agent Sasco, Tifa, I-Octane, D’Angel, Jack Scorpio, Garfield “Chin” Bourne, Rory Stone Love, Nadine Sutherland, Bob Andy, Mikey Bennett, Copeland Forbes, Lloyd Stanbury, Tessanne Chin, Danny Dread and many more. Sponsorship and participation of prominent media outlets were also a major benefit for conference attendees.

Top that off with a mention from Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment & Sport the Honorable Olivia”Babsy” Grange MP, CD during her speech at The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designation of Reggae music as an “intangible cultural heritage of humanity.” The Minister hailed JMC as one of the vehicles helping to preserve and propel the national sound and has pledged its continued support during this year’s offering!

Riot Fest Poster

Riot Fest organizers announced today that the recently reunited My Chemical Romance will headline Riot Fest 2020. The three-day festival takes place September 11, 12 & 13 at Douglas Park in Chicago; 3-day passes are on sale now.

The news of My Chemical Romance’s reunion and subsequent comeback shows in Los Angeles was met with immense excitement from their legion of fans, many of whom never got a chance to see the band live during their initial 11-year run. Now, seven years after disbanding, fans both old and new will witness the band deliver an unforgettable performance at Riot Fest 2020—and starting today, fans can get a limited number of 3-day passes starting at $139.98 ahead of the full lineup, to be revealed Spring 2020.

My Chemical Romance initially announced their reunion on Halloween 2019 with a pair of shows at the Shrine Expo in Los Angeles, which took place at the end of December. Both shows sold out almost instantly and garnered critical acclaim from multiple journalists and publications; Rolling Stone wrote, “Though the 2010s saw dozens of emo band reunions bubble up and dissipate, it’s with this landmark concert that MCR ceases to be a nostalgic act, and proves its mettle as a timeless, rock & roll band for the ages.” Forbes similarly remarked, “Tonight was a celebration, an earned one, between fans who joyously welcomed back a band they thought they had lost forever and a group that oh-so-deserved this moment of being praised, of being feted for their legacy, for their impact and for being a generational act for fans discovering rock music in the 2000s.”

With their emo-punk songwriting, theatrical vocals, and neo-goth appearance, My Chemical Romance rose from the East Coast underground to the forefront of modern rock during the early 2000s. Comprised of frontman Gerard Way, bassist Mikey Way, and guitarists Ray Toro and Riot Fest alumni Frank Iero, the band captivated millions of fans with the its iconic imagery, stage presence, and best-known singles—including “Helena,” “I’m Not OK (I Promise),” “Teenagers,” and “Welcome to the Black Parade.”

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: Founded in 2005, Riot Fest features the best of punk, rock ‘n’ roll, hip hop, metal, alternative, and just about everything in between. Founder Riot Mike is credited with helping to reunite iconic bands like Naked Raygun, the Replacements, the Misfits, and Jawbreaker, among other reunions—a staple feature of Riot Fest, alongside the full album performances, freak shows, carnival rides, and occasional butter sculptures.

Indie Artist

Award-winning alternative pop artist and songwriter She Nova, shares yet another side of her musicianship with an intimate album “for the weirdos”, releasing first single “Neon Tears” on January 15th.


Her fans, named the ‘Weirdo Crew’, who watch the outgoing performers’ live streams on the platform Twitch, requested the singer release the “#mushifying” piano and vocal arrangements of her songs to the world.


The multi-instrumentalist has notably collaborated with Grammy Award-winning Black Eyed Peas writer/producer Printz Board, performed on Fox Original Series “GLEE”, and was music director/keyboardist/singer for Atlantic Records artist Alexander Cardinale known for his song “Simple Things” featuring Christina Perri. Summer 2019,

She Nova won “Best Pop Video” at the Hollywood Women’s Film Festival for her self-made music video “ADHDAF”, where she depicts the ups and downs of having ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), through contrasting a dark, muted palette with colorful, child-like “play” scenes.

She Nova is on her debut world tour the “Weirdo Crew Tour”, performing her gutsy, passionate one-women show with a variety of instruments, vocal harmonies and looping elements, creating one-of-a-kind performances each night. US dates for Spring 2020 have been announced.

01/30 Orange, CA

03/28 Fargo, ND
04/02 Fargo, ND
04/08 Atlanta, GA
04/09 Atlanta, GA


She Nova’s debut single “She Weirdo” is an anthem to all the outcasts and dreamers who write their own identity. It’s a song that plays to the inner weirdo inside all of us… that voice in our heads that blurts crazy ideas that most say are weird or impossible. Listening to this voice was She Nova’s way of coping with a racing ADHD and dyslexic mind that refused to fit the norm. At a young age, she learned she could channel her seemingly random and up-side-down thoughts and feelings to create songs. She Nova aspires to be a role model for self awareness and mental health, helping others find the confidence to be uniquely themselves and find the superpower beneath their challenges. Here’s to the kids with fire in their bellies who chase wild dreams and march to their own beat, no matter who calls them weirdo along the way.

Melodic Rock Fest Melbourne March 2020







Melbourne Theatre Melodic Rock Fest LogoThe music of the 1980s and 1990s will go down in history for its unbridled love of rock and its almost unashamed glam rock look that involved men wearing makeup and hairstyles that defied logic.


It is a period of music that, despite initial scepticism, flourished and turned into a worldwide phenomenon with new fashion cultures spreading as rapidly as the music itself.


It was a time where image held just as much importance as the music and a time that revolutionised the world of music and ushered in legions of imitators and pretenders that continues unabated today.


The music then was almost a guilty pleasure, but if you looked beyond the glam and make up the quality of musicianship was – and still is – second to none.


Melodic Rock Fest 2020 promises to turn the clock back to the final two decades of the Millenium, rolling out the best bands and artists of that period and unleashing them back into a musical climate that is vastly different to when they played their first chords in anger.

Headlining MelodicRock Fest 2020 will be Firehouse, with support from some of the biggest names to grace melodic rock, with FM, Eclipse, Enuff Z Nuff, Crazy Lixx, Ron Keel, XYZ, Janet Gardner, Paul Laine, Tony Harnell (TNT) and Kip Winger rounding out the international contingent.

With a strong emphasis on local talent, MelodicRock Fest will also feature Midnite City, White Widdow, BB Steal, Serpentine Sky, The Radio Sun, Teargas, Ragdoll, Madman’s Lullaby, Cassidy Paris, Saint Scarlett, Terramaze, KVLTS of Vice and Dangerous Curves.

Held over March 6, 7 and 8 at The National Theatre, Melbourne, Melodic Rock Fest 2020 is taking you back to the days when music was more than just a background distraction. The fact that so many of the bands who dominated that period are still touring and performing today is testament to the enduring nature of rock. Music transcends age barriers and will continue to prosper long into the next generation.

Yesterday’s heroes remain today’s pacesetters, with the greatest line up of melodic rock ever seen in this country only fuelling this belief.

Join the rock revolution and relive the moments that will remain an integral part of music for many years to come.


Motor Ace Playing Bushfire Benefit Australia Day







Epic Line Up To Pay Tribute To David Bowie’s Golden Years


After making their highly anticipated return to the stage in 2018, beloved Aussie band Motor Ace are hitting the road for a run of summer shows, kicking off next week at 48 Watts in Newcastle on January 25, before heading to play Festivale in Launceston on January 31, Coopers Ale House in Adelaide on February 21, and finishing up playing in Dunsborough (WA) on February 22.  They will also be jumping on stage and doing what they do best to help Aussies in need, playing a bushfire benefit show on-ground in Sale, East Gippsland on Australia Day.
We all loved getting the band back together and had a really great time on the road last year, so when we were asked to do a few more shows, we were excited to take them on.  It was such fun to get out and play and we’re soo humbled that our fans haven’t forgotten us!” says drummer Damian Costin.
Passionate about helping those caught up in the bushfires that ravaged East Gippsland on new year’s eve, Motor Ace are keen to do all they can, Costin enthuses, “Words won’t fix anything right now.  Action is required, and getting down into the Gippsland area to do a benefit show is important to us.  So all ticket sales will be passed on in cash form, straight to those in the area that need it most.  There’ll be auctions, the hat is getting passed around and we are having a bbq to bring some slight relief to the area.  We’re hoping to get Melburnians along to spend some money in the community as well, donations are great, but actually getting in your car and heading down to eat, stay and be there is massively important right now too.”
With a rich musical history spanning over twenty years, Motor Ace’s debut album Five Star Laundry went gold within the first month of going on sale in Australia. After that massive feat, the band spent many months on the road touring and making music, with massive supports slots alongside Foo FightersOasis and Blink-182.  You couldn’t turn on the radio without coming across Motor Ace; and as sold out shows became the norm, their tracks became a mainstay on the ARIA charts.  Their timely sophomore album Shoot This was released in 2002 to abundant critical acclaim.  It spawned lead single Carry On that held the coveted #1 most played song on Australian airwaves for 8 weeks in a row, and Shoot This, debuting at #1 on the charts and achieving gold sales on release.  
Can we expect to hear a new Motor Ace tune any time soon? “Patch and Dave have been writing new music and we had a session in the studio late last year, the expectations are high, so we can’t drop anything until it’s really right.  The magic was there and that’s what is important to us, to find the magic,” beams CostinAnd quality takes time, and time is something we don’t have a lot of.  But I can confirm what we have been working on sounds fucking brilliant, better than anything that currently exists in this solar system.  The new tunes are like a universe of rainbows and magical musical notes sprinkled with pools of baby dolphins and fluffy pink sun lounges with a cocktail bar in your ear!
Motor Ace is Patrick Robertson (vocals, guitar), Dave Ong (guitar), Damo Costin (drums) and Matt Balfe (bass).
Tickets to the Motor Ace summer shows are on sale now.

Epic Line Up To Pay Tribute To David Bowie’s Golden Years

Australian fitness personality, Sophie Guidolin has raised over $1million dollars for the NSW Rural Fire Service & Brigades Fund in NSW and the CFS Foundation Volunteer Fund in just over a week.

Since then, the fitness professional has her eyes set on rolling out the Bushfire Bootcamp Appeal, with the aim of raising $250,000 to go directly to Kangaroo Island which will be held on Saturday 18 January from 7am.

Now being termed “Australia’s biggest bootcamp for the bushes”, Sophie has enlisted the help of a number of well- known faces in the fitness community to help her run the bootcamps across the country.

Names such as Rachel Dillon, Revie Jane, Triniti-Jean, Sally Harding, Julia Woodford, Zac Smith, Chloe Szep, Sophie Allen, Kwame Duah, Joe Pitt, Mitchell Orval, Amanda Matthews, Lauren Simpson, Danni Belle, Ali Oetjen and more have signed up to donate their time to run the events.

Tickets are $25, with 100% going directly to Kangaroo Island. No profits, no overheads, no expenses. All aid must and will go to those directly impacted on Kangaroo Island.

Guidolin, who’s father has served in as a volunteer firefighter for over 40 years, was immediately and personally impacted by the Australian bushfires. Knowing all too well the exhaustive efforts and dangerous conditions that so many men and women face on the front line, Sophie could not just sit back and do nothing.

Sophie said, “Kangaroo Island is undoubtedly one of Australia’s crown jewels, with over half of the island already burnt this will effect this beautiful island for many years to come.”

“Kangaroo Island has lost its major sources of income: Tourism and Farming/Food Production. Tragically, we have lost lives (which can never be replaced) however, many have lost their homes, properties and livelihoods.”

Sweat for good, and join us as we raise funds for Kangaroo Island. For more information or to purchase tickets jump on to Eventbrite, Instagram @bushfirebootcamp or https://www.sophieguidolin.com.au
