Jacob Diamond (WA) + Tom West + Ryan Martin John

Alt-folk oddity Jacob Diamond sings bold songs about love and death. After years in Perth’s songwriting underground, Diamond has recently emerged as one of the foremost singer-songwriters in the west, furnished with huge melodies and incisive lyrics.

 Touring his new single "Docks", loping and soft in some places but visceral and urgent in others, the first single from his forthcoming debut album ruminates on existential detachment in a way that's both highly personal and boundlessly universal.

 Joining him for his maiden voyage to Adelaide are local legends; singer-songwriter Tom West delivering whimsical folk tunes featuring grand, moody soundscapes. Plus captivating and fresh indie folk from Ryan Martin John.

Haystacks Calhoon and Ty Alexander

Two of Adelaide's finest roots acts together for a kick-arse night of outlaw country, rockabilly, rock 'n' roll and everything in between.

Singing songs of heartbreak as he wields a mean guitar, Ty Alexander's solo performances have been grabbing a lot of attention, both in his home town of Adelaide and further afield. Ty's music is drenched in Americana, influenced by a record collection that features Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt, and more of the usual suspects. The lyrics are like a pint of Coopers on a Sunday afternoon when you don't have a job to go to on Monday, comfortable, bittersweet, and a little bit dark.


Haystacks Calhoon, known as ‘The World’s Strongest Band’, are a ramshackle, barn-stormin’ bar band who know how to get an audience on their feet and stomping along.  They play a unique roots concoction they call ‘swampabilly’, inspired by country, blues, rockabilly and garage rock. The kind of concoction you swig out of a jug with four X’s on it. They also make a mean chilli, but you'll have to wrestle them for the secret recipe."

Wheaty Brewing Corps 3rd Birthday Party!!

After pouring everyone elses' excellent beers over the last eleven years, we figured it was time to start brewing our own - time to install our own stainless and start walking the walk. So in early 2014 that's what we did; in the form of a Premier Stainless 600L Brewhouse with three single batch fermentors. Just the right size to play; enabling us to brew whatever, however and whenever we want. Light-footed, nimble brewing with the freedom of Contract and the stability of Stainless. From time to time we might even be lucky enough to collaborate with some of those excellent Brewers whose beers we've poured, and will continue to pour, over the years...

The Sea Thieves + Alana Jagt

The sea thieves are a collective helmed by Zac Coligan, a South Australian born musician who has never strayed too far from shore.

The sea thieves make records filled with the dusty tones and vintage sounds like the singing saw, Optigan, toy piano, double bass and violin.

Momentum has also continued to build around the sea thieves, picking up fans through social media and other avenues. Most recently the sea thieves gained a large push in interest after the US HBO series ""Shameless" licensed the track "drag you in" to appear in a very significant episode of the hit show.

This also led to a "Shameless"Spotify playlist which gained the ST the most online plays they've ever had. Keep an eye out for live shows and an ear out for the long awaited third record, due to drop in late 2017.

Georgia Fields + Phia: Sky and Sea National Tour with special guests Naomi Keyte and Cookie Baker

Two of Melbourne’s brightest independent singer-songwriters are joining forces for their most expansive national tour to date.

 Indie-pop chameleon Georgia Fields and live-looping wunderkind Phia present a very special evening of musical dexterity, as they share the stage and each other’s songs – accompanying one another on everything from kalimba to casio, electric guitar to tambourine. Expect luscious harmonies, world-class song-craft, and impromptu audience participation.

 Hitting the road through July and August 2017, the Sky & Sea Tour will see these two unique artists lend their distinctive sound to each other’s material, as they reimagine songs from Fields’ Astral Debris and Phia’s The Ocean of Everything albums, both respectively released in 2016.

 Support comes from Adelaide’s modern-folk doyenne Naomi Keyte, whose songs sway effortlessly between the haunting and intimate. Her recently released debut album Melaleuca was celebrated as “thoughtful and evocative… a striking album” (the AU Review).

 Alt-country troubadour Cookie Baker will open the night, with her signature noir-folk sound and songs that explore heartbreak, longing and redemption. Her latest single The Summer featuring Tim Rogers is “gentle, sublime” (The Music).

 “Georgia Fields dreams in fantastic Technicolor... Irrepressible pop." – four stars, The Age newspaper

 “Bright, catchy-as-hell pop done with absolute surety from Phia." – Double J

Hana Brenecki & Kate Alexander + Emily Davis Band + Sam Reiher Trio (VIC)

Hana Brenecki & Kate Alexander

Singer-songwriters Hana Brenecki (Hana & Jessie-Lee/ Glass Skies) and Kate Alexander (Local Coward/ Ute Root) meld their distinct voices to form an inimitable sort of beast that at times coos and weaves along delicate lovelorn pop hooks à la the Everley Brothers, and at others soars into hot-blooded guttural soul harmony.  Alexander and Brenecki trade song for song, soldering melodies and words together so finely that the lines blur as to who exactly is singing what. Photo: Max Moore

Sam Reiher

Sam Reiher is a Melbourne based musician playing a mix of country, honky tonk and folk. Drawing on classic influences such as love, death, life and friendship, Sam Reiher writes songs that’ll resonate with any fan of Americana music. His debut EP was produced and recorded by Australia's grand daddy of country music, Mr. Bill Chambers.

Emily Davis Band

Davis is known for her smoky vocals and 'honey-sweet voice' (Rave Magazine). Her songs draw from her own life and explore themes of love, death and the gritty parts of the human heart with unashamed vulnerability and poise. She has a reputation for ‘utterly absorbing’ (DB Magazine) and ‘breathtaking’ (Rip It Up) live shows. 

Joined by her band, Davis now blends acoustic folk, alt-country and blues influences with the singer-songwriter's confessional style. Davis enlisted her long-time friend and duo partner Tori Phillips (fiddle), as well as Emily A Smith (guitars) and Annie Siegmann (bass) to bring her latest songbook to the stage. They are currently working on Davis’ next studio album.
