ADRIAN DZVUKE
There's no stopping Adrian Dzvuke [pron: Zu-kay]. In his relatively short career, Adrian has amassed close to a million streams, and with his band has become one of Western Australia’s most in-demand emerging acts. As evinced by performances at Perth Festival, Groovin The Moo, WAMFest, and Wave Rock festivals, as well as support slots for ​POND, ​Kevin Parker (Tame Impala), ​San Cisco, ​Stella Donnelly, ​Winston Surfshirt​ & ​Triple One.
Born in Zimbabwe, Adrian moved to Australia aged 12 wherein the finest R&B tradition – began his music career singing and playing drums in church. Fast forward a few years, and inspired by the likes of Drake, Wizkid, and Childish Gambino, Adrian started to write and produce his own tracks. A natural and energetic performer, the next move was to form a band with some friends from Zimbabwe and make inroads into the live scene.
Equally at home on stage with his band or in the studio, his soulful mixture of R&B and Afrobeats has been gaining fans at every show and with every release.
Adrian’s recent run of singles such as ‘One Time’, ‘Bad Like Ri Ri’, ‘Darling’ & ‘Feelin’ Myself’ has seen him enjoy radio airplay with Triple J & Beats 1, and receive placements on major Spotify & Vevo editorial playlists, amassing over 350,000 streams.



GRACE SANDERS

Producing music between their bedroom studios in Perth, Grace Sanders and collaborator Ezekiel Padmanabham combine R&B, indie, electronic and pop influences to create a unique and identifiable contribution to Australia's exciting underground music scene.  Sanders' lyrics play centre stage in the musical presentation, with writing that conveys a unique and personal worldview; discussing addiction, mindfulness, grief and mental health best captured in the intricacies exuded in Padmanabham's precise and layered production style. Referencing artists such as Frank Ocean, Tyler the Creator, Caroline Polachek, Solange and Toro y Moi, the duo are at the front of a new wave of moody, introspective R&B in Australia with their DIY approach bucking trends and granting freedom to the pair to explore whatever inspires them.

The depth and variety of influences in their sound, paired with Grace's signature sultry vocalisations led their debut EP 'GUMS' (released Feb 2021) to be received with a wide range of praise from NME, Triple J, Tone Deaf, Cool Accidents, Pilerats and AAA Backstage (among more). The pair have since found themselves signed with one of Australia's leading booking agencies 'Niche Productions', and playing alongside artists such as Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Grievous Bodily Calm, Great Gable, Dulcie, Adrian Dzvuke and Tanaya Harper.

Since the release of GUMS, the pair have already begun working on their next project, set to be released early 2022.

THREE PHASE
An Albany-based alternative band playing upbeat, easy listening music defined by harmonic chord progressions, bright instrumentation, and flowing lyrics.


THE SUNBAKED DEAD COLLECTIVE
Albany's newest band on the block, The Sunbaked Dead Collective, are four mates from Albany Senior High School. Since their formation in music class in 2020, they have played a handful of explosive rock and grunge laced gigs around town and had some great support shows. TSDC will be pushing out some of their favorite grunge rock anthems at the All-Ages event.
