Artist Information

Bryan Ferry 523x380

Bryan Ferry

As an artist and musician, Bryan Ferry possesses the rare distinction of being regarded as both classic and contemporary – an accomplishment achieved by both his recordings with Roxy Music and the range and intensity of his solo albums.

Roxy Music were leading proponents of the more experimental element of glam rock as well as having a significant influence on early English punk and new wave music, all the while crafting a sound that was completely their own.

Avalon, the band’s most successful studio album, was number one on the Australian charts for three weeks in 1982, with the single ‘More Than This’ hitting the Top 10. While remaining with Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry kicked off his successful solo career with the debut album These Foolish Things in 1973. He continued to record acclaimed solo albums throughout his career with the band, with his third solo album, 1976’s Let’s Stick Together, giving Bryan his first number one single here with the unforgettable title track.

As a frequent visitor Down Under since 1975, both as a solo artist and with Roxy Music. Bryan Ferry last toured Australia in 2011.

IM TALKING 523X380

I'M TALKING

I’m Talking will play their first shows in more than three decades. With just one album, Bear Witness in 1986, I’m Talking established themselves as musical pioneers, achieving mainstream chart success with their blend of dance, pop and underground funk.

Fronted by Kate Ceberano and Zan Abeyratne, the band was founded by guitarist Robert Goodge, sax player Ian Cox and bassist Barbara Hogarth. They were joined by Stephen Charlesworth on keyboards and Cameron Newman on drums.

Their shared love of dance music saw them release a string of iconic singles – ‘Trust Me’, ‘Lead the Way’, ‘Holy Word’, ‘Do You Wanna Be’ and a haunting cover of Rose Royce’s ‘Love Don’t Live Here Anymore’.

In 2018, Bear Witness was remastered and reissued along with a string of unreleased tracks, B-sides and rare re-mixes, leading fans to hope for an I’m Talking reunion. Their hopes have been answered!

Died Pretty 523x380

Died Pretty

Fronted by the charismatic Ron S. Peno, Died Pretty released eight acclaimed albums, including the classic Doughboy Hollow, which was nominated for Album of the Year at the ARIA Awards.

As Ian McFarlane states in his seminal Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop, Died Pretty “unashamedly plundered rock’s past to arrive at an original sound that was always passionate, atmospheric and uplifting ... some of the most inspirational rock music heard in Australia”.

MODELS 523X380

MODELS

When they formed, Models were hailed as one of the most innovative and imaginative Australian bands. Four decades later, not much has changed. Their chart-topping run of hits includes ‘I Hear Motion’, ‘Big On Love’, ‘Barbados’ and ‘Out of Mind Out of Sight’.

Models, fronted by Sean Kelly, are that rare breed of bands – one that has successfully straddled critical acclaim, cult appeal and commercial success. Proving Models never go out of style, they were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2010.
