Peter Black is a legend of the Australian alternative/independent scene, although a lot of people won’t recognise his name. There are thousands who do know him though, as Blackie.

Wielding his Gibson SG in Sydney’s pioneering multicultural pop-punk phenomenon the Hard-Ons since the early-‘80s, Peter Black has had a hand in classic alternative hits like “Girl In The Sweater”, “Just Being with You” and “Don’t Wanna See You Cry”, released over a dozen albums and over twenty singles and EPs, played the inaugural Big Day Out, toured Australia, Europe and the US countless times, built a legion of fans and influenced generation after generation of subsequent musicians. You can ask everyone from Spiderbait and Regurgitator, You Am I and Magic Dirt, through to Frenzal Rhomb and current chart breakers Private Function, and they’ll confirm that last point.

T. Wilds:

T. Wilds is a singer/songwriter based in the Blue Mountains. The impact of her voice is immediate and definitive and provides the perfect vehicle for her ever-expanding catalogue of songs that are wise and curious, daydreamy and evocative. She is influenced by the beauty of her surroundings and the natural world.
