Silk ‘N’ Oak
Formed in 2013, Silk ’N’ Oak were originally a folk-rock duo, but have recently undergone an evolutionary transformation into a five-piece alternative rock outfit in the short space of 5 months. Still fronted by brothers Rick and Troy Saunders, Silk ’N’ Oak have five east-coast tours under their belt, a bootleg self-titled EP, three singles, and they’ve hosted two successful boutique music festivals in South-East Queensland, Australia.

In the early days, after playing in bands with classmates and friends, the boys decided to have a go on their own: winning the busking competition at Urban Country Music Festival on their first outing in early 2014. Rick & Troy made the UCMF line up again in 2015 and 2016 and have since played Airlie Beach Festival of Music, Gympie Music Muster, Caxton Street Festival and O’Heart Festival.

Now after a successful 2017 and a band line-up just like Rick and Troy imagined, they plan on doing more of what they know – playing live shows, and lots of them.

Sean Gagen
Sean Gagen has had a strong love for music and performance from an early age. Known for his work as the front man of Ipswich based band Ball of String, Sean crafts noteworthy vocal melodies accompanied with the strum of his guitar. Through his career Sean has had the opportunity to perform the Woodford Folk Festival and received recognition for his song writing skills at the Queensland Music Awards. Definitely an artist to keep a close eye on in 2019.

Peppermint Ollie (in replacement of Ben Maynard)
Having launched her energetic debut EP ‘Difficult’ in December 2017, Ollie draws inspiration from an eclectic collection of influences including Kate Miller-Heidke, Amy Shark, Alex Lahey and Panic! at the Disco. Ollie’s music reflects on the darker trials of life with a playfulness and comedic flair, with her songwriting generated from a place of heart and humour. Her honest lyrics, unique take on the pop-rock-folk-ukulele-jazz-punk genre and catchy melodies are sure to be playing in your head long after leaving one of her charismatic live performances.
