Ethan Mansfield is a young aspiring guitarist who has fallen in love with his Dad’s Takamine guitar and re-arranging popular songs into crisp, clean acoustic ballads. As a student at Westside Christian College he currently studies Music with his teacher and local Jazz Musician, Mr Chris Hollier, and performs at the annual Battle of the Bands Competition each year. He has been involved in the College’s Funk/Jazz/Rock Band as the lead guitarist since entering Secondary School, and also plays in the Shiloh Chapel Band on Acoustic Guitar. His duo ‘Little Wildflower’ released two original tracks earlier in 2019.
This year Ethan has also refined his craft through his musical contributions at his church, Central Church Ipswich under former W.C.C. Music Teacher Mrs Kirsty Simpson. He takes his style from covers band – Boyce Avenue, and loves jamming with his younger brothers, live streaming their performances to their family across Australia, when they have time. He loves being on stage, recently performing as Edmund in the College Production of ‘The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe’. This will be Ethan’s debut live performance.
“Life without Music is no life at all”. A powerful quote by Friedrich Nietzsche in 1844 still rings truth in the 20th century. Rebekah Qleibo makes sure it is still 100% true to this day! Barely 16 Rebekah Qleibo has been singing since she could talk. With her own quirky style and tones, it’s her natural vibrato that makes this voice something special. A love for gospel and classical music from her parents and combining this with a love for modern ballads and pop such as Adele and Lady Gaga, Rebekah Qleibo has forged her own identity and style.
With opportunities across Brisbane and Ipswich over the years, it’s been her participation in excellence programs such as the Australian Honours Ensemble Program with the Griffith Conservatorium of Music and a vocalist for QPACs production of ‘Memorial’, with the legendary Helen Morse, that has solidified Rebekah’s passion and love for music as a singer and song writer.
Moving forward this teen has her sights set on The Voice and sharing with the world her beauty, which is a life of music and song.

“Zeth Hall is a 17 year old boy from Ipswich who has been playing progressive metal, blues and various styles of guitar for over 5 years. From picking up his dad’s old Magnum electric guitar, he never put a guitar down after and his world only expanded ever since. Luckily ending up in a guitar shop at age 14, his boss at Tone Town Music has taught him all the secrets and technicalities of music really early. Zeth is also apart of YMCA Bundamba which has been a big influence and eye opener towards his music working with the artist and producer, ‘Master Wolf’ and a few others. Being with YMCA, he has also scored himself a music and sound production course at Tafe through the school. When Zeth holds the instrument in hands, he himself becomes one with the sound and tells his story ever so detailed, so make sure you tune in with an open mind to hear what he has to share.”
