Description

ABOUT DANIEL CHAMPAGNE One reviewer recently wrote Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical (themusic.com.au)


The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.


The next five years saw him traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia playing such festivals as Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium’s Labadoux Festival and Australia’s Woodford, Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest. As well as touring and sharing stages with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler, KT Tunstall and Ani DiFranco, Jake Shimabukuro, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Tommy Emmanuel, Albert Lee and Kaki King – all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing two EPs, Gypsy Moon Volumes 1 and 2, his first long player Pint of Mystery (2011), My Own Design (2009), Wide Eyed and Open (2010), and the Real Live offering in 2012. His latest full length release Fault Lines (2017) is available now and his new project, Satellite City EP (2018) is comprised of three singles, Satellite City, Indigo, and The Great Divide, all out now.


As one reviewer recently wrote, “still in his early twenties, the distances he has been would be more frequently associated with veterans of the Folk scene” (The Dwarf).


ABOUT VAN LARKINS

It was the hurricane season, in Blackwater 1994 when Van Larkins, a ten year old Australian discovering his gift for music, began what was to be a journey of musical exploration and discovery. Van’s father, an artist and musician, introduced his son to the guitar, which was to become Van’s instrument of choice and access to share his music with friends, family and soon after, a world-wide audience of music connoisseurs.

Van Larkins plays a modern fusion of traditional styles with a “one man band” approach incorporating bass, rhythm, melody and harmony. Van’s music has transitioned from Metallica to finger-style acoustic guitar, playing transpositions of 400-year-old harp songs.

He is now signed as a solo artist with CandyRat Records and completed his first solo album in May 2012. During that time Van has toured New Zealand twice where he recorded his first album with internationally-renowned guitarist Andrew White and played at the Acoustic Masters Series held in Hamilton where he opened three of the shows and also played with Nigel Gavin. Van has also toured America and Canada and in July 2011 performed at the prestigious Canadian Guitar Festival in Kingston, Ontario.

ABOUT LAN TOLLESON

Lan Tolleson is an emerging Folk/Pop singer/songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Raised in Jackson, Mississippi, he grew up on folk, pop, and bluegrass - all of which show in his work. He attended Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee where he studied commercial music as a vocalist. He has been compared to artists such as Jason Mraz, Punch Brothers, and Ben Folds. When he sits down with his guitar to write, he aims to capture truths about the human experience in both his lyrics and his music, blending his personal style and experiences to create something unique and honest.
