News : SUI ZHEN UNVEILS STUNNING DEBUT ALBUM ‘TWO SEAS’
efpublicity writes"5/5 “Gorgeous new stuff… Quite non-linear, I love the way this song
moves. A gorgeous journey!” – Little Frog Single Review GEMMA PIKE, TRIPLE J UNEARTHED RADIO
“Striking pop music” – THE AU REVIEW, 2012
Sydney-raised, Melbourne-based artist Sui Zhen (pronounced Sue-ee Chen) is the
colourful personality of singer/songwriter and composer Becky Freeman, who is
set to release her beautiful debut album ‘Two Seas’ on 4th May 2012. To celebrate the release, Sui Zhen
will hit the road in May and June with an Album Tour along the east coast,
stopping in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Newcastle, Wollongong and Canberra.
'Two Seas' came together throughout Sui
Zhen’s travels over the past few years, and the album bears the unique marks of
all the spaces inhabited along the way. A song written in Redfern was recorded
in an old church in Wildes Meadow, arranged in Berlin and mixed in Gerroa.
Whilst visiting family in Bahrain – which translates literally to ‘two seas’ – Sui Zhen
decided the album was ready for release.
Working with acclaimed producer, Tony Dupe (Holly Throsby, Jack Ladder), you’ll hear soaring yet delicate
vocals from Sui Zhen as she combines indie-folk with touches of country,
experimental and pop whimsy. First
single “Little Frog”
has already gained support of major indie radio stations and found its way
around the blogosphere. It has also been featured in Frankie Magazine’s
Sui Zhen has been performing both solo and with her full live band
since 2003, supporting the likes of Coco Rosie (USA), Kimya Dawson (USA), The Brunettes (NZ, SubPop), and Malcolm Middleton (of Arab Strap, USA).
Sui Zhen’s self-titled independent EP of folktronic-pop was launched
in late 2007 to glowing reviews and national airplay. Sui Zhen was selected for
the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy in 2010 and performed at Sonar Music Festival in Barcelona later that year. Alongside
releasing ‘Two Seas’, Sui Zhen will also release an EP with fellow RBMA 2010
participant Andras Fox in their duo project, Fox + Sui.
Her influences include Karen Dalton, PJ Harvey, Arthur Russell, Daniel
Johnston, Joanna Newsom, just to name a few.
Don’t miss this innovative and beautiful music gem.

News : Goss Community Choir
GossCommunityChoir writes"POP CHOIR NEEDS MORE VOICES
Ok, so when you hear the word choir, you might be thinking a church
group, or a classical choir, or maybe something you may have tried out
for in school..
Before you hit the Back button... we invite
you to read on as we think we might change your mind... gOSs Community
choir is not your average choir.
Kings of Leon, Goyte,
Roy Orbison, Lady Gaga, Toto, Katy Perry, Michael Jackson, Metallica,
Alice Cooper, Bruno Mars, Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton, Queen, Beatles ...
yep these are just some of the artists we've not just covered, but put
our own flavour to.. If we've got your attention now please feel free
to read on...
- There is NO AUDITION process
- You don't
need to read music or have any singing experience. You'll be in a group
of friendly people who'll be happy to help if you get stuck.
- If you're looking for a fun and friendly group to socialise with, you'll definitely fit in here.
- If you're aged anywhere between 16 and 600 years old then you qualify to join.
- If you fancy a nice tea break in between courtesy of gOSs, we got it covered.
- Finally ..... all this costs a whopping $5 per session... No, that's not a mis-print! ONLY FIVE DOLLARS a session.
Also, you'll get some great opportunities to perform. This choir is really making a name for itself in Melbourne. We've opened the National Festival of Choirs Grand Finale Concert alongside Jonathon Welch, and sung at several reputable locations including the beautiful Werribee Mansion.
If this all sounds good to you, we invite to take your voice out of the shower, and bring it along to one of our rehearsals.

News : Renown Producer David Carr is now taking bookings for June 2012
david_carr_producer writes" "An impressive sound" -Sylvia Massey
"David Carr is a like a secret you whisper to your friends. A musician's musician, he plays like an angel, engineers like the devil, and lifts to the sky any song he graces with his touch".
A talented multi-instrumentalist in his own right, David Carr's mission as a Record Producer is to make every Production hold it's own, both artistically and sonically, against the world's stage and all within an Australian budget.
He brings 25 years of experience and the benefit of having learnt his craft whilst under guidance of experienced producers and engineers- and all of this was paid for by the long gone era of 80's and 90's record company excess.
David has received much praise by way of comparison. He has been called both Australia's Butch Vig and Rick Rubin (the latter for the fact David can be recording a 'roots' outfit one week and Death Metal the next). Contemporaries see parallels to the work of Steve Albini, Brendan O'Brien and Andy Wallace.
Because of these associations it is common for music industry Captains to make many assumptions about David's production sound; that perhaps his mixes were done by Americans, that his studio is all analog tape based or that he mixes on an SSL console. When quizzed about the gear he uses David is quick to point out that what really matters is the creative talents of the engineer. Tools, both new and vintage cannot create sounds and this is why Mr Carr gets the same world class sound regardless of the Studio he is using, tools, location or budget.
Peter Mazlin, A&R at Gotham records suggests David is one hit away from a massive commercial career but despite Peter's observation, David Carr's continuing allegiance to independent Artists is testament to his belief in Producing 'honest' music and the rejection of the "cookie cutter" ethos.
Some recording highlights:
David's 1st production effort equips artist Paul Colman for a Grammy Nomination.
David works with Linoleum alongside producer Simon Austin from Frente who then signs a deal with Polydor Australia.

David produces Kiss Chasy's 'Dark side' EP which receives mainstream airplay and catapults the Band to National success. They sign to John Watson's group.
David produces Antiskeptic's Aurora and the singles Clear to Pass and Nothing to say gain high rotation JJJ play.
He mixes Angela's dish 'Lie Die' release and they sign to a major.

David records and mixes Forgiven Rival's 1st EP which lands them a deal with El Shaddai Records

original material was needed and returned to the studio for three solid
