Join us for another week of live music as the SEED Album Launch series continues to showcase the best young talent on the Gold Coast. With an all star lineup this week, you won't want to miss the likes of Angus Oastler, Athena Joy, Hazel Mei, and Josh King!
Influenced by Rufus Wainwright, Ryan Adams and Justin Townes Earle, Angus Oastler is an alternative folk singer-songwriter based on the Gold Coast. With a unique perspective and thought-provoking lyrics, Angus' songs will bring life to your lungs and a calmness to your mind.
Athena is the Goddess of reason, craft, intelligence, wisdom, strength and war. ATHENA JOY uses this as inspiration for her music in order to create memorable melodies with identifiable, humbling and sometimes quirky lyrics, ultimately communicating a strong alternative pop sound. Her music has been described as ‘hauntingly beautiful’ by AAA Backstage and already earned her a Queensland Music Award Nomination with her second single.
Poetic lyrics, an ambient flair with a jazzy twist; these are the elements that make up Hazel Mei’s music. Based in Brisbane, the young alternative artist is working hard to create a unique sound and make her mark on the music industry. With influences from artists such as Boy and Bear, Regina Spector and Norah Jones, Hazel Mei is one to listen out for.
If John Mayer, Jason Mraz, and Shawn Mendes walked into a bar and started jamming, it'd sound a lot like Josh King. Josh combines a unique blues/pop sensibility, with the ability of modern folk story-telling, allowing him to standalone from the many artists of today’s scene. Be sure to stick around until the very last word has left his mouth, because Josh King will be telling you the truth of the world in every song he sings.
