Liz Stringer

Singer, guitarist.

Liz Stringer is one of Australia’s most respected singer-songwriters, always simmering, always producing something, whether it be an intimate solo record or a rollicking band album, sometimes recalling a Chrissie Hynde-like balance of unsettling lyrical directness and pop composure. Her voice is soulful and feisty, her novella-like lyrics visceral, yet poetic.

At sixteen she left Melbourne and went to Germany, started a band and recorded her first demo. She returned to Melbourne, went to her local high school, and began to write more and more songs.

Bruce Haymes

Bruce Haymes is a Aria award winning, keyboardist, producer & arranger who kicked off his professional musical career with Russell Morris’ The Rubes and is now one of Australia’s leading keyboard players.

Paul Stewart is best known as the flamboyant frontman of the rock band Painters and Dockers, but a near-death experience inspired him to dedicate his life to helping young people at risk.

After decades of embracing the rock and roll lifestyle, Stewart suddenly found himself in desperate need of a new liver. After 18 months of waiting for a compatible liver, a priest came and read his last rites.

Stuart Grant
