We are absolutely stoked to announce that four SEED alum are showcasing at BIGSOUND this year! Phoebe Sinclair and Electrik Lemonade were selected to perform at the BIGSOUND Gold Coast Showcase, and Austen and Keelan Mak were chosen to perform at the Triple J Unearthed stage. 

We could not be prouder of their achievements in the years since they joined the SEED program. It's been such a pleasure seeing their talent continue to blossom!

Ahead of their BIGSOUND showcases, we thought we'd get you reacquainted...

 Phoebe Sinclair

Phoebe Sinclair

After joining the SEED program in 2015, Phoebe Sinclair has gone from strength to strength. She was a finalist in the Gold Coast Music Awards in 2017 and has performed at festivals including Backbone's 2high Festival and Horizon Festival. 

Most recently she has been collaborating with international producers to create pop bangers. She wrote her latest release "Real Issues", with Swedish producer Fred Chase - and fellow SEED alum Mikayla J and Lara Frew!

 
 

This year Phoebe has been selected to perform at Gold Coast's BIGSOUND showcase on Wednesday 5 September from 12.30-2pm. If you'd like to go and you don't have a BIGSOUND pass, all you need to do is email cultural@blankgc.com.au and they will hook you up! Find out more about the showcase here.

We dug through our archives and came across a few sneaky videos of Phoebe performing - as you can see, she's always oozed with talent!


 Electrik Lemonade

Electrik Lemonade

Of the four SEED acts performing at BIGSOUND this year, Electrik Lemonade is, without a doubt, the *funkiest*. Starring Popular Music graduates Brad Hosking and Jake Morton, Electrik Lemonade first boogied their way into our hearts and the SEED family in 2013.

Over the past few years, this eight piece juggernaut has been cutting their teeth at festivals all around Australia including Airlie Beach Music Festival, Wintermoon Festival, Perisher Peak Festival and Surfers Paradise Live. 

 
 

They have been selected, along with Phoebe Sinclair, to perform at the Gold Coast Music Showcase on Wednesday 5 September from 12.30pm-2pm. Again, if you don't have a BIGSOUND delegate pass, but you'd like to come to the GC Showcase, email cultural@blankgc.com.au and they will help you out. Find out more here.

To prepare your body and soul for the funky onslaught, here are a couple of our fave moments with Electrik Lemonade over the years!


 Keelan Mak

Keelan Mak

For those unfamiliar with his music, Keelan Mak's sound is best described as smoky indie electronica. His song 'Anymore' was the opening track on SEED Volume 5 in 2016. Since then, he has gone on to support E^ST, TORA and Lanks and his recent releases have received strong Triple J support.

 
 

He has been selected by Triple J Unearthed to perform at the Famous Nightclub for BIGSOUND this year. His set is on Thursday 6 September at 8.10pm. Don't miss it!

Our instagram archive has delivered once again - here are some of our favourite moments starring Keelan.


 Austen

Austen

Electronic enchantress Austen has a seriously impressive list of recent achievements. After joining the SEED family in 2016, Austen has supported the likes of Nicole Millar, KLP and The Kite String Tangle and racked up over half a million streams on Spotify.

 
 

In addition to Keelan Mak, Triple J Unearthed also selected Austen to perform at BIGSOUND this year. (Triple J Unearthed sure has great taste! ;) )

If you'd like to catch Austen in the flesh, we recommend you head along to the Famous Nightclub on Wednesday 5 September at 8.10pm. Do it!

Here are some of our favourite moments featuring Austen...
