Sydney musicians tonight pay homage to the legendary, controversial and iconic BEBOP SESSIONS, with Kevin Camrass on sax and Matthew Collins on trumpet accompanied by a rhythm section of Casper Tromp on piano, Hamish Gullick on bass and Philip Lombardo on drums.

Direct from Berlin: Australian shows in Nov + Dec
Thavy Ear is one of the most diverse female vocalists and songwriters to emerge from the Australian music scene having work with an array of artist both in Australia and abroad include: Brian Campeau (Inertia) – DeeJaye Katch (Resin Dogs /2Dogs/Hydrofunk) – David Atkins (2Dogs/Wolfmother) – Resin Dogs (Hydrofunk) – Sereck (Def Wish Cast/Celsius) – Def Wish Cast – Lance Willson – Royalston (Hospital/Med School) – Greg Packer (Interphase/Good Looking) – Ian Peres (Wolfmother) – Alan Mawdsley – HauLatukefu (Koolism) – Abstract Rude (ATU)- Bradford Ellis (The Nextmen) – DJ JS-1 (Rock Steady Crew) – Mark Walton (Fretless) – Will Styles (DubRave) – Avene – Scotty B (DigitalAssassin) – MC Shureshock (The Shureshock Project/Klub Kids) – Midnite Sleaze (Stealth/Vicious) – Danny Merx – Miami Husslers (Housession/Nervous) – Bernardo Garcia..and many more . She has chosen to share her creative energy across the urban and electronic landscapes, equally comfortable on a soulful lounge rhythm as she is on a seductive dance anthem. While the young songstress is not easily comparable, her broad musical horizons take influence from most genres across the modern musical spectrum. “For Your Ears Only“ the EP captures Thavy at her best and comprises 5 outstanding works which were brought to life with the help of David “Acosta” Atkins ( Resin Dogs, Wolfmother) on production duties. “For Your Ears Only“ is set to broaden the appeal for this young artist with amazing production that is sure to please her listening audience. Thavy’s formative years were anything but easy and whilst permanently altered by her upbringing, she refused to become a product of her environment. Instead, she took a background of hardship and used it to inspire some truly remarkable music that is only now reaching full bloom and catching the attention of the Music Industry and music lovers alike. Born to Cambodian parents, Thavy’s love of music began from a young age (her solo album features “Believe” which she wrote at age 13) and was a passion that she pursued throughout her education, culminating with her completion of a Bachelor of Arts in Music Business/Performance at RMIT University. Today Thavy divides her limited time between her job at a major music organisation and the studio where she has worked with an impressive and broad variety of producers and performance acts. While Thavy enjoys working in the corporate side of the music business, her heart is set on writing, performing and dazzling with her own music.
