Fed Square Live MC - Walter Musolino
Presenting the Fed Square Live artists each week will be Man City Sirens front man, Walter Musolino. Walter is passionate about helping other Australian artists who have set out on the road of creative endeavour.
Heloise is an original artist whose eclectic folk music will take you on a journey through time and space. Meet weird and wonderful folk, dance to the sounds of the trees with foxes and gypsies and travel to places you’ve dreamt about but could never quite reach.
Alternative rock artist Miffy Duke learnt to play guitar growing up in the Pacific Islands of the Solomons. He honed his songwriting skills living in the UK, working with the likes of drummer Ben Kennedy, who tours with Ladyhawke and Foxes. Come and discover his unique sound – described as epic, expansive and emotional.
Sit back and listen as acoustic artist Brett Lee weaves stories with his folk ‘n’ roll and acoustic-surf melodies. Influenced by Paul Kelly and Jack Johnson, you’ll hear secret hints of country, honesty behind his lyrics and an organic feel to his songs.
Shelley Segal performs and writes across a broad range of styles including pop, folk, jazz, blues, rock and reggae. It is her intimate storytelling and biographical lyrics that unites her songwriting across all genres. Shelley accompanies herself on guitar and has been performing her original music around Melbourne and internationally for the last ten years.
Forest Falls combine folk, indie and pop in alluring, warm-blooded songs. Their sound is laden with inviting chants, dynamic arrangements and soaring lead vocals.
Traditional pop singer, actress and storyteller, Ilana Charnelle will take you back to the days of love letters, bathtub gin, slow dancing and smouldering jazz. She is your postcard from the past, a 22-year-old with the heart of a crooner caught somewhere between the 1940s and the 1950s.
