For local singer/songwriter Jake Davey, music isn’t just a hobby. He may be a singer, song-writer, producer and performer, but for Jake, music isn’t just what he does – it’s who he is.
Jake’s fate was sealed the moment his father placed a guitar in his hands when he was six years old. He’s rarely had it out of his hands since. He began writing songs at age 12, and by the time he’d reached his mid-teens, Jake was being booked for shows frequently.

SOAR is an alternative rock 6 piece based in the manning valley of NSW. Their music ranges from chilled out easy listening to a concoction of upbeat dancy rock. The six boys have been gigging around for 3-4 years now and have polished off the edges to create a sound of their own. With trumpet, keys, bass, two guitars and drums, SOAR is able to create a super tight and suitable sound for any venue.

Harry Jakamarra has a voice that stops you dead in your tracks. A punchy, Springsteen-esque growl that's imbued with the rugged texture of the West Australian desert where he grew up.
Harry's songs are truly Australian . . . just like 'Wake in Fright'. A Kimberley Cowboy turned Mad Max, Harry tours in a vegie oil powered fire engine he converted to a house. He tears the roof off Pilbara pubs and southern sit-down gigs alike with his dry Guitar picking and dark, twisted lyrics.
"And then Harry Jakamarra... just blew me away the first time I met him. He's kind of a genius. He's a bit of a multi-instrumentalist and can play the shit out of the guitar as well as having the amazing, gravelly, Bruce Springsteen-y kind of a voice. I think people are going to love him." - Missy Higgins ('The Music' magazine, 25/10/2017)
Harry also takes the Clawhammer Banjo style to new levels. Far from a dinky twang, Harry's Banjo playing is closer to the Saharan rasp of the Tuareg rebels who schooled him.
"Harry Jakamarra has great storytelling, a commanding singing voice and he can pick a guitar or a banjo like the devil's on his tail." - Jeff Lang
He's inspired by Warumpi Band, Midnight Oil and Gillian Welch. Warped by studying Indian Classical on the banks of the Ganges River, and narrowly escaping a Tuareg uprising in Timbuktu. Coloured by a life spent on the road, Harry's music is the most genuine thing you will hear this year. His songs have the poetic staying power of Wilfred Owen, Paul Kelly and Hank Williams.
A fluid groove musician from coastal Western Australia, Blue Child's smooth, oceanic sounds conjure an easy flowing, positive vibe from a well-travelled man of the sea.
An enthusiastic collaborator, multi-instrumentalist and fingerstyle artisan conjuring soundscapes spanning raging rhythmic grooves to bluesy licks and ethereal trips, this is music with purpose, reminding us that we're all just children of this little blue planet, life is simple and connection essential, a theme which is evident in his thought-provoking lyrics and engrossing live performances.
With 2 EPs released in 2015 and the Collective's debut album, “Saturn Saw The Seaside”, recorded in Corsica, France while on tour just released in Sept 2016, Blue Child Collective continues to tour regionally and internationally in order to share the love and connect the dots.
With 2 regional ventures in WA, a 3 month stint in Europe and another 3 month, 45 date Australian Tour to promote the release of their latest record “Saturn Saw The Seaside” last year, backed up by regular national and international touring since 2014, Blue Child Collective attracts artists of all forms worldwide to offer up engaging, thought provoking shows and releases, blending flavours from many backgrounds in order to showcase the oneness of art, humanity and the universe as a whole.
Having supported major touring acts such as The Cat Empire, Sticky Fingers, Caravana Sun, OKA, Band Of Frequencies and many more, Blue Child is no stranger to the stage, and intends to continue bringing his vibes to the global community through extensive touring, collaboration and innovation.
Sound is simply one platform on which we can share experience and energy; combine this with art forms from many diverse backgrounds and you give expressive depth to an already infinite source of inspiration. Working with film, photo, graphic, animation and freehand has propelled Blue Child Collective into a wider world of creation, with their first feature film, shot on tour in Europe mid 2015, released on the big screen in April last year, and their next - the making of “Saturn Saw The Seaside” - to follow in early 2017.
Continuing to grow and evolve as a platform to help facilitate the sharing of art in all its forms, Blue Child Collective is more than just one man and a guitar, but a collective creation contributing to the culture of connection.
