    What was the lead up to you becoming a musician?

    I’ve always loved music, and grew up with it. I did piano lessons from a young age and my dad always played guitar around the house. Since I started singing and writing songs when I was about 14 it just kind of felt right that I should keep going. I moved to Perth at the start of the year to pursue that.

  • THE SHIP SONG

    Yomi Ship harbour all the most interesting of the descriptives that come after the musical catch-all that is ‘rock’.

    Instrumental, experimental, art, psychedelic, post and progressive – they are all these and more in spades, but brothers Nick Osborne (drums) and Jarred Osborne (drums) grew up in a musical family founded on some straight up rock’n’roll traditions. As young as 13 they were playing hard rock covers and originals at community festivals and Royal Shows, but evolution was afoot.

  • 'LOT HAVE MERCY

    In the second of the Live At The Backlot: Up Close And Personal series we’ll meet the creative force behind Perth’s funk/soul favourites, Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics.

In the time since they have turned Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics into a powerhouse dancefloor-filling outfit. But while the grooves are irresistible, there’s more than meets the eye in terms of the creative dynamic and the deeper sentiments within.
