Brisbane indie pop darling Tiarne struck a chord when she emerged last year with captivating vocals and sentimental storytelling landing debut single, Kids, on immediate triple j Unearthed rotation; as well as a finalist spot in the 2017 QUBE Effect Awards. With songwriting and performances likened to Julia Stone and Lykke Li, the 21 year old artist blends organic musical elements with subtle electronic production to create intricate indie pop that music fans and industry tastemakers are loving.
Picking up the guitar at just 9 years old, Tiarne honed her craft at JMC Academy, moving to Brisbane five years ago to pursue a career in music, and continues to collaborate with producer and high school friend, Dylan Lindquist (Clawmachine). Tiarne’s debut singles and EP, Bloom earned nationwide airplay on community radio, television and film features, including Channel 11’s Toasted TV and a spot on the Red Deer Festival bill, alongside some of her idols like The Preatures.
2018 sees Tiarne grow into the next phase of her creative career with the release of a new coming-of-age single, Lights on 19 October, a song about moving away from friend and family to fully embrace a new city as home.
Fieu (pronounced Fee-yoo) meaning ‘heat’ or ‘fire’ is the alias of Queensland Alt-Pop artist Emily Brewis combining powerful vocals with keyboard synths, ambient electric guitars and energetic drum beats.
Since releasing her debut EP in 2014, Fieu has topped Triple J Unearthed charts, gained national radio play (including Triple J), as well as been recognized for her writing in the International Songwriting Contest and QMusic Awards. With a growing CV of support credentials for artists such as Ayla, Montaigne and Woodlock, Fieu is a fresh face that is swiftly becoming a familiar one.
With time spent to experiment artistically, Emily has been working closely with Perth based producer Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe, Meg Mac) to evolve her sound to present a powerful synth-based pop direction which will feature on her upcoming second EP in 2016.
Mid May will see the first taste of Fieu’s 2016 release with ‘Impossible’. Featuring a carefully crafted array of lush soaring vocal harmonies, addictive melodies and bright synth-pop foundations, her new songs will place your imagination right in the scene of a Hollywood adventure film.
Allowing yourself to pen lyrics that are brutally candid to your life is a reality for the most open of songwriters, and it’s a world Taleena Peck has willingly thrown herself into. This Brisbane-based indie pop artist has grasped the art of granting gravity to life’s happenings through her ethereal style and tendency to write songs that are painfully honest, raw and cathartic.
Influenced by the likes of Johnny Cash, Shania Twain and Missy Higgins, Taleena has spent her entire life inspired by the great storytellers. Her goal now? To become one herself. “I’ve only ever wanted to write songs and I’m just fortunate that I am now able to sing my own stories.” For Taleena, music has always been just another language, and as her understanding of syntax developed, so too did her lyrics. “I remember asking my parents to teach me how to spell before I reached pre-school so that I could write my songs down. I really don’t know a life without song-writing.”
Now found playing with an accompanying guitarist, this songstress’ sound has evolved from that of a small town, guitar-slinging singer songwriter, to a confident and sultry indie infused performer, tackling the music world one song after another. Taleena’s reputation for writing authentic and unapologetic songs makes for a captivating performance, every time.
