Session Artists

Harry James Angus, the firebrand trumpet-playing vocalist from The Cat Empire, is known for his thrilling live performances and his constant musical re-invention. His dynamo new live project, Struggle With Glory, continues to cross musical boundaries, transporting the classic Greco-Roman myths into a surreal world of old-time jazz and gospel music

Emily Lubitz is best known as the lead singer and song writer of critically acclaimed indie-folk band Tinpan Orange. The band has toured extensively around the country and internationally over the last decade. She is also one half of We Two Thieves, a collaboration between herself and Mama Kin.

Jess Ribeiro is an award winning singer songwriter inspired by artists as diverse as The Velvet Underground to Dusty Springfield. She has been compared to the likes of Karen Dalton and Cat Power. For Jess Ribeiro, making a record is a lot like falling in love: it’s a dive into the unknown with the belief that the currents will carry you. With album number three, LOVE HATE, the analogy could not be more apt.
