Mark curtis & The Flanelettes
Mark Curtis and The Flanellettes are a folk/rock band from Adelaide, SA. Combining heartfelt lyrics with quirky arrangements, their songs are a bittersweet appreciation of the past. Drawing influence from bands like Blind Melon and The Beatles, Mark Curtis has a gift for channelling the inner world in a way that is identifiable to any listener.
Mixing the beautiful with the ugly, he communicates the fragility of being human while keeping a certain playfulness. Drenched in harmonies, vulnerability, cynicism, longing and humour; Mark Curtis and the Flanellettes are a fresh look on an old story.
South Australian singer songwriter, Kelly Menhennett has been quietly creating a stir in music circles with her unique songwriting, soulful vocals and earthy, honest persona. 2012 began with a bang, performing her rootsy-edged tunes with her band at the iconic 2011/12 Woodford Folk Festival and then going on to win the national 2011/12 “Telstra Road To Discovery Songwriter” award and then perform at the 2012 Americana Music Festival in Nashville.
Over the past few years Kelly has graced the stages of some of Australia's great venues and festivals such as the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Feast Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Falls Festival and the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
The Montreals, are a slick indie-rock outfit from Adelaide, South Australia. After kicking the door down with their silky debut EP ‘ Indigo Club’ in late-2016, the band successfully toured nationally. The guys sport a finely balanced raw polish of modern SoCal meets the foundational indie-rock vibes everyone knows and loves. The highly anticipated release of their first single of 2017, ‘ deadheads.’ , is the exclamation point on a breakout debutant year.
