Shortlisted for the Americana Music Prize in 2018, Kelly Brouhaha’s brand of americana soul is as real as it gets. The South Australian songwriter & multi-instrumentalist spends most of the year around a campfire, travelling in her 1992 Toyota Hiace Van called “Pamela Vanderson”.
Her debut self titled album tells the story after leaving her marriage and mortgage behind in the pursuit of happiness. The single “40,000 Star Hotel”, co-written with Aleyce Simmonds is a big, ballsy, freedom-esque blues which captures the heart of the australian landscape and the lure of off-grid living.

His music captures the warmth and passion of the Southern European lands, taking elements from flamenco, jazz, classical, folk and popular music. With this mixture of different musical inspirations, he creates his own personal and highly melodious style…
Rosario is a gifted musician and composer, he can create a Mediterranean atmosphere with just a guitar. His style is something between melodious picking and rhythmic percussive playing. The general impression is aggressive and experimental, he adds a lot of influences into his tunes but it always sounds somehow rooted in the Mediterranean, yet with a unique flavour to it.
