Sarah Blasko writes songs that strike with rare immediacy, clarity and purpose. Melodies beguilingly simple. Lyrics honest and direct. Music steeped in atmosphere and mood. From the now-classic debut The Overture & The Underscore through to this year’s euphoric Depth of Field, her six-album run of genre-defining art-pop is unparalleled. She is one of this country’s most treasured artists.
The defining feature of Ryan Downey's music is his voice. In his 2018 debut LP Running, not a note detracts from his rich baritone as he sings a song cycle of humour and pathos, self-analysis, sex, love and modern life. Running marks Downey's third release and first full-length album.
