Alex Albrecht - One half of Albrecht La'Brooy and discerning Melbourne label Analogue Attic, Alex Albrecht is deeply ingrained in the fabric of the Melbourne dance scene. Pairing classical jazz elements with improvised electronica, Alex's music floats gracefully between ambient textures and gentle jazz croonings. In March of this year, Alex released his first solo album, Campfire Stories which "explores dreams, the unconscious and the intertwining of feelings and memory. Interspersed field recordings lend to the fragmented way people recall experiences. It is a narrative in which the listener is encouraged to attach their own thoughts and impressions to the soundscapes.’’

Melbourne budding phenom, Audrey Powne is a name synonymous in both jazz and R&B circles with ingenuity and inventiveness. The Trumpeter/Vocalist and stalwart of Melbourne’s burgeoning jazz and soul scene is known for fronting alt. RnB outfit ‘Leisure Centre’ (F.K.A. The Do Yo Thangs) and genre-defying synth-pop duo ‘Au Dré.’ In 2020 the young multi-hyphenate established her enriched sensibilities as a solo artist with the release of her EP ‘Bed I Made’ to acclaim from the likes of Earmilk, NME, and Bandcamp Daily who named it one of the best soul releases of October 2020. Her music fuses traditional pop song-writing with elements of RnB and Hip Hop and the freedom and improvisation of jazz, showcasing her unique virtuosity as both musician and vocalist as she transitions seamlessly from dexterous vocals to soaring trumpet solos.

Colette: One of the cities most enduring performers, Colette has been a mainstay in many of the cities booths for years. Always packing a bag of discs to tickle ears in any situation and a big smile, it's no wonder Colette has effortlessly become one of the scenes favourite faces.
