The Refuge

Fresh from a packed-out gig at the Workers Club Geelong supporting Southern River Band on their east coast tour, a full house at The Loft Warrnambool and a massive home town show in Apollo Bay, The Refuge’s well-honed, new material continues to win fans. Having played over 100 gigs in 4 years by the age of 18, the band recently won the Queenscliff Music Festival Emerging Artists grant, which they used to record their second studio album, due for release in late 2018. Their new album, produced by Scott Wilson and Neil Gray from Big Sky studio who worked on Dan Sultan, Chris Cheney (Living End) and Vasco Era, contains ten tracks that combine various genres within each song adding to their energetic rock sound. The band exploded onto the Queenscliff Music Festival stage leaving plenty of new fans blown away. The Refuge were recently ranked 3rd on the bands to watch list after King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Rolling Blackouts by the Weekly Review.
The Refuge’s signature sound is emitted through their stellar stage presence, which is powerful vocals, staggering guitar riffs, explosive drumming and killer bass playing.

Blue Howl

Hailing from Central Victoria, Blue Howl have been hitting festivals and venues across Victoria with their punchy and emotive songs. The 5-piece indie-rock outfit have let their live shows do the talking, taking every crowd on a journey through stripped-back folk to funk and heavy rock. Voted as crowd favourites at the 2017 Macedon Ranges Music Festival, they have since been regulars on festival stages and music venues across Victoria. Their 2017 cover of The Verve’s ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ garnered widespread attention and was followed up by their 2018 release of a live take of their upbeat single ‘Spider’.

Alister Turrill

“Alister is a songwriter of the highest order and a sign that the future of Australian blues is in good hands.”  –  Lloyd Spiegel, Premier Endorsee Cole Clark Guitars.

It would be a generalisation to group Queenscliff’s Alister Turrill with other young roots players. His playing style blends a true form of blues with complex song writing seldom seen. The past two years have seen the new Melbourne resident at his busiest and best yet with his first East Coast Tour and first European shows.

Honest, Flawed, Gravel-Throated Folkin’ Blues awaits.

Adventure Pants by Captain Robbo

After many years perfecting her art as a screen printer and a good few years of printmaking at RMIT and SCU, the search for printed leggings that were both beautiful and well made was over when Katy Robinson left her job and started making leggings herself. In a studio somewhere in Melbourne, Captain Robbo and her Adventure Pants were born. After 4 years on the road Adventure Pants are well known for their comfort, durability and original style.

Adventure Pants are hand printed by the Captain with locally sourced natural fabrics and inks using sustainable work practices that make Adventure Pants as ethical as they are hot. Nail it looks-wise by day, sleep with peace of mind by night. Captain’s orders.
