Echo Children performed their first show in Auckland in late 2015 and released their first single, ‘Turn to Stone’ in April 2016. After honing their sound and establishing themselves on the live scene, they have been in the studio recording their first e.p. released February 2017.

The four-piece, comprising Oliver Young (vocals and guitar) from Scotland, Amanda Larsson (bass and vocals), of Sweden, Daniel Armstrong (vocals and guitar), from the UK, and Niamh O’Flynn (percussion and vocals), from Canada, have created a sound which fuses the lyrical songwriting of the likes of Springsteen and Ryan Adams with the spine chilling harmonies of Fleetwood Mac.

Velvetland - This 4-piece master a blend of driving 70s style power pop, 60s melodic jangle and 80s US/GB/NZ indie with moments of psychedelic ambience and atmospheric guitars. Founded by Alex Baker, Jordan Bradly and Owen Bradley in November 2013.

Formed from the remains of indie four piece Aspens, Auckland-based Velvet land are four members - Steve Wikiriwhi (lead guitar), Owen Bradley (drums), Jordan Bradly (bass) and Alex Baker (guitar, vocals).

Famous Will is a Folk/Country singer-songwriter & story teller. Born into a musical family in Gawler South Australia, Will packed up his campervan at age 21 & headed to the music capital, Victoria.

Basing himself South of Melbourne in Geelong, a few open mic nights lead to meeting incredible local musicians & opportunities for shows at music festivals, hotels & venues as Famous Will established a name for himself in the surfcoast & greater Geelong areas.

With consistent commercial radio play & television debut coming from the first single, the sky's the limit for Famous Will. September 2016, Will quit his job in retail & departed from Melbourne to take his music around the Australia with mearly a campervan, a guitar & his happy-go-lucky nature.

Fueling this trip solely through playing gigs & festivals along the road, Will's taking his music to the people the old school Aussie way, playing gigs in every town & city that cross his path. On this journey, Home is where the van is.
