Angus and Julia, born and raised on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, grew up around musical talent, their parents, who taught them music at home, used to have their own folk band.
After being involved in a serious car crash at the age of ten, Adam Lanceley has returned with his sixth release Back To The Sunshine, from which net proceeds will go towards The Brain and Spine Foundation Charity.
Listen to ‘A Film We All Saw’ From the EP here:
The severity of the crash left Adam fighting for his life and Doctors told his parents that it was unlikely he would ever walk or talk again. However, Adam showed remarkable determination to prove them wrong, going on to raise considerable amounts of money for Brain and Spine through numerous 10k runs and he has even completed the London Marathon in aid of them in 2012.
At the time of his accident, not a lot of research had been done into the treatment of brain and spinal injuries, so Adam knows first-hand how traumatic the recovery process can be when the expertise is simply not available. The Brain and Spine foundation was also in its formative stages when Adam sustained his injuries, hence his dedication in raising money for them. He says: ‘I know it is a charity well worth supporting so that the trauma is reduced for future sufferers and I am committed to trying to help as much as I can’.
With his new EP, Back To The Sunshine, Adam has been keen to experiment with new production methods and instrumentation whilst still maintaining his signature style. Whilst Adam has been compared to the likes of Lou Reed, Nick Cave and Johnny Cash, he takes inspiration from a wide range of artists including R.E.M, Roy Orbison and most significantly, The Beach Boys. As a result, Adam creates a genre-bending blend of music that evokes a definitive sunny, West Coast vibe.
When writing his music, Adam is influenced by a mix of factors: everything from topical and relevant events to personal experiences from the present day, as well as his younger years. For example, destinations such as Yorkshire and Devon, amongst other places, have provided Adam with fountains of ideas that he has turned into intriguing and meaningful lyrics, attributing ordinary places with mystical grandeur and reflecting fond memories from his childhood.
With five previous albums to his name, Adam is a prolific songwriter with an affinity for his craft. The new EP was recorded in Surbiton with the help of a sound engineer who worked the engineering for The Eagles when they last played at the Royal Albert Hall.
All net proceeds from the sales of Back To The Sunshine will be donated to The Brain and Spine Foundation and the EP is set for release 7th April.
“Move over Adele, there’s a new British diva in town” – ITV This Morning
Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Rosie O’Sullivan is back, after losing 16.5 stone in weight, with a new soul inspired collection of tracks. The soul songstress writes and sings from the heart with a fullness of passion, which has nurtured and helped shape her own individual musical imagination. Having performed at Birmingham Pride, Big Festival and The Brummie Awards, worked alongside Martha Reeves, Shalamar and The Real Thing and received amazing feedback from the BGT judges, O’Sullivan is back and better than ever.
Gaining influences from her family and relationships, Rosie found her own experiences in life inspire her music most. The album is based around relationships and experiences in her life that have happened over the past few years but ‘No One’ follows the story of true love between Rosie’s mum and dad that she is lucky to see every day.
Brought up with the rousing sounds of Motown, soul and the vibrant style of the sixties, Rosie immersed herself in the unique energy of the music, which has naturally lingered into her own. By the age of eleven Rosie could play both the piano and saxophone and continued to blossom as an artist. She began singing alongside The National Youth Choirs of Great Britain in the 2011 and 2012 BBC Proms and then gained a Bachelor of Music Performance Degree at the London College of Music.
Multi-million selling celebrity self-help author and hypnotherapist Glenn Harrold takes a step back from the spiritual world to peruse his musical career. Harrold has collaborated with Dean Rhymes to release ‘The Wayfarer’ inspired by the amazing story of Peace Pilgrim.
His hypnosis and meditation downloads and Apps have sold over 7 million copies worldwide and are perennial best sellers on Amazon, iTunes, the App Store, Google Play and elsewhere.

Despite being bullied for long periods of her time at school, Jodie H. Dunn has fought back against her bullies using these difficult experiences to fuel her songwriting talents. Consequently, after many hardships, she has professionally recorded the supremely well-crafted track, ‘I Belong In Hell’.
Don’t be put off by the name though – it may sound like a hard-core metal track but Jodie’s style takes elements of pop, soul and even a little bit of rock to form a potent combination. Her powerful vocals and dark, brooding sequences wouldn’t be incongruous to a James Bond theme or film soundtrack and this goes to prove the versatility of Jodie’s music.
After studying at the Academy of Music and Sound, music became Jodie’s diary whereby she expressed her emotions via her lyrics. Her songs have progressively got more meaningful, leading to ‘I Belong In Hell’ based on the idea of someone controlling you at your lowest point.
