Meet The Hi-Boys

Oh my The Hi-Boys are so hot on stage, you can feel the canned heat in your heels from the minute they step onto it. To say they are high energy is an understatement, these boys are fiery, raw, rough and ready to knock your socks off with the rockabilly edge that is so undeniably their own. When you've seen them once, you will know that sound anywhere, like the smell of your favourite coffee house in the morning you'll be addicted. For a 4 piece, the intensity of sound that comes at you is an explosion of 50's style rock 'n' roll to leave you breathless but your body will not be able to stop the boogie.
Hailing from the talent-rich Noosa area, the boys have been making us shake, rattle and roll all over Queensland for some time now with their polished, tight sound. Having recently returned from a US tour through California and Nevada, they have been working hard on growing their international audience, so it wasn't all rock star shenanigans, they did perform three shows and record new material to grace our eardrums upon their return to our shores. So what's next? If you've never heard them play, you really need to get yourself to one of their stage carving performances. No one does wild rockabilly like these boys. Rock 'n' roll like theirs isn't for the faint of heart, tracks like 'Tell Me Baby' and 'Trouble' are real heart starters taking us back to the days of liberty rolls and quiffs with a modern flavour that puts them in a league of their own.
Now they have returned home, we can't wait to hear the fruits of their passionate labours. Scottie, Daen, Paulie and Dean are keen to get back out there with the latest single 'Shake' which has also been released as a 45, plus more new tunes as soon as possible. Also a little gossip from the fan page, they have just signed with L.A based Rock 'n' Roll record label Wild Records, and are now sponsored by Kingbrown the big news, from all of us here at Alt Journal, we'd like to congratulate Scottie and his new Fiance' on their engagement ...cheers to a long and fulfilling love affair.
Be rock & rolled right here...

PLANET - The Struggle for Support is real for Emerging Artists

Words of wisdom for every emerging artist from PLANET's Matty Took. I wanted to start a conversation about the reality of following your dreams in the music industry in Australia. We want young artists to understand these challenges a little better & know they are not alone in the struggle.

 Your bio states that you had several years of trial and error in your songcrafting. What was the defining moment you found your rhythm and were happy about what you were producing?

I feel like every band or musician starting off doesn't really know what “their sound is” or know what their vibe as a musician is when starting off. Especially when they throw themselves in the deep end at a younger age, without any ‘behind the scenes’ work and no label behind them. This was us, as we just started playing straight away.

We’ve all played in a few different bands in our time so hundreds of songs have come in and out. Our defining moment was probably about 3 years ago when we started PLANET. We …

The Uprising of Van Larkins

Who the heck is Van Larkins? I hear you ask. 
Focus, drive and determination are three words that come to mind talking to Owen, AKA Van Larkins. His compositions are dynamic, artful and complex commanding every ear in the vicinity; the craft of one who literally eats, sleeps & breathes their passion.

Composer, mentor, teacher and troubadour of a unique fingerstyle revolution in Australia, Owen has chanced many opportunities to grow with his craft. It's not just making a classical tune or knocking out some dank rock, (both of which I love mind you), his arrangements are so much more. When this guy picks up a guitar, together, they create an aural story. Having just released his second solo album in July this year, I wanted to know about the uprising of Van Larkins, and his new album 'Cinder Moon'.

You've just recently played a role in a documentary style film, 'Acoustic Uprising'. How did that come about?

I was in discussion with the guy who put the whole th…

Journey through Desire Path.

Talking with Yeo, I felt like I was chatting to a friend, he is humble and honest. We spoke about the themes intertwined in 'Desire Path' and how each collaboration came about.
Your last album was really playful both in the music and the lyrics.  Listening to your new album ‘Desire Path’, I felt like a it’s journey through different relationships. 
Yeah, I think even if the lyrics get really literal, music to me is based on emotion and emotions are kind of nothing without a relationship to give it context I feel.
Well when you think about, it relationships rule our lives, whether it be a friendship, family or a work colleague they are always an influence; but I feel quite a few of these tracks are about love relationships?
There’s a few on this album, and I haven’t done this for a while. The last album had a couple, but I feel like I got more honest on this one. 
I agree, you have a great way with words and that draws me in to your music. I take an expression of human emotions and …
