Formed in mid-2018, Violet Orange are a 4 piece girl fronted band from Perth, Western Australia. Their music explores 60’s girl band vocals, smooth harmonies and quirky call-back vibes to take you back in time. With heavy inspiration from The Bangles, The Go-Go’s and The Easybeats, Violet Orange released their newest singles ‘Goody Goody’ and ‘Fool Me’ using groovy bass lines, rockin’ guitar rhythms and a driving drum beat to create tunes that will knock your socks off! Members of the band include; Danielle Foote (keys and vocals), Michaela Francis (guitar and vocals), Tina Ha (bass and vocals) and Jordan Abel (drums).

Mark Turner captivates audiences with his unique approach to blues, folk, soul and groove. 
After a decade performing with WA talents such as Adam Hall and the Velvet Playboys, Jessie Gordon, the Darling Buds of May, DJ Fdel and the Perth Cabaret Collective, and performing at major festivals in Belgium, Germany, Singapore, and Australia, Mark has recently released an enchanting original debut, “Made For Us”.
Mark has won four music awards and one cabaret award at Perth Fringe World Festival and, in his debut year as a songwriter, was nominated for a WAMi Song of the Year award and semi-finalist in the Unsigned Only competition.

Paper Moon are an acoustic trio that present a showcase of classic jazz, soul, country and blues stompers plus some creatively reinvented contemporary pop favourites.
The band features the Western Australian Music Industry award winning Fiona Rea on vocals
Fiona Rea is a multi instrumentalist and vocalist, with a passion for connection with audiences. She has performed both locally and internationally as an original and cover artist and brings her years of performance experience and passion for song to every show.

Nestled on the shores of the Western Australian shore line, 18yrs ago, Perth became home to this innocent, sheltered, staunch Maori woman. Embarking on her overseas experience she’s never left this coast line.
An older brother is the extent of sibling love, and influential to the foundations of “music/singing/songwriting” into her life. From 13yrs old through to 29yrs old Maera continued to write/compose and create emotional releases through song. First recordings at Tainui FM radio station, gaining airplay and a national wide audience.
In Perth, 2008 and the release of “Someday Now” long awaited Original Music, full length album, accompanied by some of Perth’s finest musicians, saw a dream come true for Maera.
