Based in Tasmania, Emma Anglesey’s haunting and catchy debut single Bike saw her become a Triple J Unearthed Spotlight Artist. Emma’s second single Mary-Anne premiered in Tone Deaf in November 2016 and has received rave reviews. Triple J Unearthed music director Dave Ruby Howe gave the track "4 STARS" and Rolling Stone Australia said “Mary-Anne is a song that flourishes in its delicacy but is punctured with grit.”
Infectious, driving drums propel a sweeping instrumental; rich strings stab, and choral backing vocals float while Anglesey’s understated vocal susurrates throughout. On the writing of the song itself Emma said, "It’s an emotional pain killer and I wrote it to turn a feeling of struggle into a feeling of revelling in the fight”. To accompany the track Emma, in collaboration with Tim Kling (Sarah Blasko, Chase City), produced a stunning film clip that embraces the wildness of the Tasmanian landscape.
Emma's music combines dark pop and folk. Both Mary-Anne and Bike are from Emma’s forthcoming record which was produced and mixed by Nashville-based Australian music producer Josh Barber (Gotye, Archie Roach) along with Nicholas Lam who co-mixed. Of working with Emma, Joshua said, “I met Emma at a small folk festival in Tasmania and she was one of the stand-out writers I heard there so I told her I'd love to work with her. Emma's songs are thematically articulate, with visual and almost tactile lyrics that I really enjoyed working to and selecting sounds that build towards these emotional environments.” Award winning composer Jonathan Dreyfus arranged strings for the track and it was mastered by Lachlan Carrick (Goyte, Lior).
2016 saw Emma as a festival favourite in Tasmania and she’s featured at A festival called Panama, Festival of Voices and at DARK MOFO. “Wow. We're gonna have to learn how to pronounce your surname coz i reckon we're gonna be saying it a lot.” Kyran Wheatley, presenter of Triple J Weekend Breakfast.

Australian singer/songwriter and producer Topher Morrey made the deliberate move from ‘big city’ Melbourne to wild Tasmania to slow the pace and ground his Soul/Groove sound into something more gritty.
Joining up with good friends and fellow Tasmanians Greg Heart, Matt Deakin and Justin Orr they’ve found their soulful funk flow, peppered it with a hint of melancholy Blues, and packed it full of heart felt flavour … meet Mocane.
THE SCARY FAMILY BAND
The Scary Family Band spans ages 7 to 56 and plays hillbilly, old-time, jug, early jazz, Istrian folk, and blues music with occasional sci-fi overtones. They have wrangled saws, ukes, mandolins, banjos, harmonicas, dancing jig dolls, double bass and slide whistles everywhere from Killiecrankie (Flinders Island) to Koper (Slovenia)!
