Ben Lee

BEN LEE has been writing songs about the inner workings of his mind and heart for almost 25 years. Whether the subject matter was trying to impress girls in his Year 9 class, the existential poetic yearnings of an 18 year old, his wrestling with ambition and fame, or over the past decade and a half - grappling with matters of spiritual and psychological development, you can never accuse Ben of not wearing his heart on his sleeve.

Beginning with his lo-fi punk band Noise Addict, discovered by Sonic Youth in 1992, and throughout his solo career, he has always been transparent as a songwriter, attempting to take his most intimate struggles, observations and yearnings and turn them into accessible, catchy songs that his loyal audience could digest. He has had hit songs, won ARIA awards, been covered by other artists, had songs in commercials, TV and movies and toured all over the world, but one can clearly sense that these have never been the main goal for Ben - rather, it has been his artistic and spiritual journey that has driven his decision making in his personal life and career. ...

The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer

SHAWN ‘The Harpoonist’ HALL and MATTHEW ‘The Axe Murderer’ ROGERS evoke much more than just grisly nautical imagery. Armed with an arsenal of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion, and a road-worn Telecaster, the duo kick out raw and primal blues in the tradition of a “decades-deep blues style” (Scott Brown, What’s up Yukon), while infusing the genre with a jolt of renewed energy.

“With a name like The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Vancouver-based duo is some sort of concept group based on a hypothetical love story between Captain Ahab and Lizzie Borden.”  (Chris Oke, Yukon News) The two met and bonded over music while recording a radio jingle. Their memorable name is inspired by a lyric from Kris Kristofferson’s ‘Bobby McGee’ that references the blues harp, (‘I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana’) and ‘axe’, a common term for the guitar. ...

Both their previous albums have been nominated for ARIA awards and the band are calling this release their best work yet.

Fresh off opening the World Cup and bringing down houses on 4 continents last year, VIEUX FARKA TOURE is poised to become Africa's preeminent axe-man.

Vieux Farka Touré’s career in music would never have happened if his illustrious parent, African blues legend Ali Farka Touré’s, had his way.  Ali felt that the music business was a harsh place to work and preferred that Vieux enlist in the army.  But young Vieux, destined for the stage, honed his skills on the guitar in secret and eventually found a mentor in Toumani Diabate, and his own talents eventually convinced the elder Farka Touré that a second generation of music prowess was inevitable. ...
