Award winning Artist Laura Hill is an exquisite singer songwriter from the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.
She has the innate ability to write songs that are both encapsulating and haunting. With hints of sassy wisdom Laura’s song writing is matched with a stunning clarity and tone to create a beautiful, varied and dreamlike soundscape. Whether performing solo or with her band, the quality and diversity of Laura’s musicianship and song writing paired with her striking, yet delicate voice leaves audiences visibly moved; like the feeling of fresh air in your lungs and a pinch of glitter on your shoes.
You can also find her fronting Lilac Cove. A dreamy nostalgic Indie /Pop 5 piece launched in late 2020.
With 6 highly-regarded albums and music featured in movies and documentaries such as The Emu Runner and John Pilger’s Utopia, Nhunggabarra, Kooma man and international touring singer-songwriter Glenn Skuthorpe is a powerful lyricist and composer who gives voice to those whose stories must be heard.
Following a string of highly successful tours and winner of the overall Best Music Award at Adelaide Fringe 2021, prepare for an infusion of genres with vibes of dirty street blues to dusty plains and wide-open skies.
'Skuthorpe has no interest in “new country” or “country pop”. He has his own sound, his own style and he is more than happy to exploit what he does well. He writes strong, emotional, storytelling lyrics and backs them up with a tight band and tight guitar sound. This album should be on turntables the world over. Blues, Cajun, Rock, Roots music all combined by one incredibly talented and extremely hardworking musician.’ - Aaron Badgley, Spill Magazine (CAN)
‘Glenn’s strong and weather-beaten voice rings true...this man is a poet.’ - Dave Steele (AUS)
‘...a style that is earthy, Australian and very much his own.’ - Yarn Up Magazine (AUS)
