Emily Davis is an insightful songwriter, whose music walks the line between folk and rock. Her cinematic lyrics create a luscious world for the listener, as each song explores human connection, the universal truths we all know but are often too afraid to admit and her enduring belief in the transformative power of love. She follows in the tradition of the strong women of her art form. Her sound is reminiscent of songstresses Brandi Carlile, Emmy-Lou Harris, and Chrissie Hinde. She has a reputation for ‘utterly absorbing’ (DB Magazine) and ‘breath-taking’ (Rip It Up) live performances. Put simply she knows how to turn a room.
Davis ceremoniously dropped out of law school in 2005 to pursue music, and penned songs for her debut pop-folk release ‘Moving in Slow Motion’, to rave reviews, and rotation on NOVA, Triple J and ABC National. Her sophomore release ‘Undone’, a darker alt-country record was released in 2011 to similar critical acclaim. Emily has toured extensively across Australia and performed at WOMADelaide, Peatsridge, Fleurieu Folk and Semaphore Festivals and supported CW Stoneking, Clare Bowditch, The Audreys and Kate Miller-Heidke Renee Geyer, and Richard Clapton.
Her latest release, ‘You, Me & the Velvet Sea’ is a deeply personal album focussed entirely on love, in all of its incarnations. Combining aching fiddle, gritty guitars and sweet four-part harmonies, the songs are propelled forward. And, front and centre, Davis’ delivers her evocative lyrics with a syrupy voice, resonating with the honesty and warmth that she is renowned for.
Enchantingly beautiful, down-to-earth and absolutely spellbinding, Loren Kate has cast a sublime and haunting web over audiences around the country with her unique and unforgettable sound and soul.
Having travelled and toured to most corners of Australia over the years, Loren has steadily forged a close relationship with her music and the land, having penned songs in just about every town from Fremantle to Byron Bay.
Over the last few years, Loren has travelled extensively around the country, taking her music from the deserts to the seas and back again. She has performed at countless venues and festivals around the country including Woodford Folk Festival, WOMADelaide, The National Folk Festival, Nannup Music Festival, Fleurieu Folk Festival and Fairbridge Music Festival, and has shared the stage with such fine musicians as Tim Freedman (The Whitlams), iOTA, Epicure, Vika and Linda Bull (The Black Sorrows), Steve Poltz and folk legend Eric Bogle.
Both Loren’s albums, Brand New Shoes & Your Own Little Ocean are now available in all good music stores through Vitamin Records Distribution. Most recently Loren has joined forces with fellow singer-songwriter Sarah Humphreys to record a children’s album titled ‘Little Wonders.’

Riley and Katie are young married pair in their 20’s but they’re vintage in style and sound. The Old Married Couple combine a witty songwriting style with a distinctive kazoo filled music.
