Takeover: Daniel Elia

Daniel Elia joined the Local Roots team in the JOY 94.9 studio to play four tracks live for you. Producing music with a strong political and spiritual message, Daniel Elia encapsulates the trials and tribulations faced by the Melbourne South-Sudanese community, and what it means to be black in Australia. With an extensive background in dancing and touring, Elia was inspired by watching his favourite artists perform. At age 19, he began writing lyrics and recording his tracks on his laptop. It became apparent that his natural creativity and emotional intelligence was able to thrive through the creation of music. Elia captivates his listeners with lyrical poetry and unique instrumentals. The recognition of his talent provided him with opportunities to perform at St Kilda festival 2019, Thando’s Ep launch (part of Brunswick Music festival) 2019 and Groovin The Moo 2019. Daniel Elia spoke with VICE magazine about his conscious lyrics in collaboration with Hennessy. “Daniel Elia is at ...

Jam Session: Woodes

Woodes joined the Local Roots team in the JOY 94.9 studio to play four tracks live for you. After writing her first song at age 11, it was clear that Elle Graham was going to make a career in music. Growing up in tropical North Queensland, Graham used her upbringing as inspiration; pairing it with training garnered at the Victorian College of the Arts to launch her solo project WOODES. Elle released her debut Woodes EP in 2016 and it immediately made an impact, debuting in the top 20 iTunes charts in 7 countries including going #1 on the Singapore Alternative Album charts and named ‘best female artist 2016’ by influential US blog Indie Shuffle. In 2017 Woodes signed as a songwriter with UMPG worldwide, as well as securing an invite to SXSW, where she was named by The AU Review as the ‘Best Australian Solo Artist’ of the conference. Upon release of her second EP ‘Golden Hour’ in early 2018, Woodes became an in-demand live act; supporting international heavyweights Asgier, BØRN...

Takeover: Val Flynn

Val Flynn joined the Local Roots team in the JOY 94.9 studios to play four of their tracks for you. Val Flynn, a born performer and refreshing new voice in the Australian music. With foundations laid in fashion and styling, Val Flynn’s passion for music was ignited during a late-night studio session with good friend Miss Blanks, ‚”She pretty much pushed me into the booth and said bitch sing you got a voice! Use it!‚”. Reminiscent of early 2000’s hip-hop futuristic sounds, Val Flynn draws inspiration from Aayliah, Christina Aguilera, and George Michael. Exploring themes of love, sex, and individuality, Val Flynn has global ambitions to resonate with the heart beats that skip to their own sound. On ‚Werq 4 It‚ Flynn has enlisted Miss Blanks, creating an infectious combination of boss energies and unforgiving charisma. Flynn sings masterfully in and out of autotune, chopped over a high energy jungle infused garage beat. Have a new track to share? Get in touch with us! Send all ...

Jam Session: Tender Buttons

Tender Buttons joined the Local Roots team in the JOY 94.9 studios to play four of their tracks live for you. Tender Buttons are a 4-piece alternative dream-pop band from Footscray, Melbourne, bringing together dream-pop, shoegaze, and indie-pop influences. In 2016, Tender Buttons was born out of a collaboration between Jessicca Bennett (Love Shack Studios, Lash, Preytells), Rachel Sztanski (Reii) and Andrew Kluchareff (Lunars) on the dreamy surf-pop single ‘Southern Hemisphere.’ Following it’s positive reception and airplay on community radio, the trio commenced work on their forthcoming collaborative and self-produced E.P. The tracks were sent to be mixed by Aden Senycia (Nicholas Allbook, Peter Bibby, Rabbit Island, Pikelet), who has since joined the band on bass guitar. Have a new track to share?

Jam Session: Maxon

Maxon joined the Local Roots team in the JOY 94.9 studios to play four of their tracks live for you. Maxon is currently shaking audiences with her trademark vocal and boundless song-writing talents. A gifted and versatile artist, Maxon burst onto the Melbourne music scene in 2016 with her own brand of raw, emotionally-driven pop songs and a dynamic vocal range that earned her comparisons to the likes of Adele, Meg Mac and even one of her biggest inspirations, Alanis Morissette. With unstoppable strength and a callousness toward burning bridges if need be, Maxon’s writing is stylistic of a diary entry; clandestine and forthright. Such confessional writing is bound to a vulnerable stage presence and a voice soaked in command, as Maxon’s audiences witness the tale of the gifted singer and her battle through the trials and tribulations of love and its conditions.

Jam Session with Nancie Schipper

Nancie Schipper joined Rachel & Dinah in the Local Roots studio for this week’s live Jam Session. A Local Roots Jam Sesh is where a local independent artist stops by the studio to play 4 tracks live to air, along with a nice long chat about their music. Nancie is no newcomer to the stage, having spent the last six years tirelessly working her way around the local music scene, cutting her teeth playing pub gigs whilst too young to buy a drink at the bar. Swapping an acoustic for a telecaster and full band, the hard work is paying off for Schipper, who showcased at BIGSOUND in 2019 to packed rooms and scored a slot opening for Alex Lahey on her regional tour this October/November. The last year has seen her support Ball Park Music, Tia Gostelow, Rat!Hammock and perform at St Kilda Festival and Queenscliff Music Festival. Nancie played 2 brand new tracks not yet released – which we found out she is recording this week! Follow Nancie Schipper * Website * Facebook * Instagram Have a ne...

Live Jam Session with Louise Terra

Louise Terra joined Dinah & Jason in the Local Roots studio for this week’s live Jam Sesh! Each week a local independent artist stops by the Local Roots studio to perform a set of 4 tracks live to air for you. Nothing is off limits and we go deep into finding out who they are and why they chose to release music. They’re artists we love and think you’re going to fall in love with too. Louise Terra’s fascination with electronic music is in the liminal, the beautiful and weird stuff created between genres. Using the computer as her instrument, Louise Terra single-handedly crafts deliriously hooky songs from layers of vocals, pounding rhythms, and atmospheres of sounds and synthesizers. As gorgeous as they are unsettling, Louise Terra’s style of electronic dream-pop comes from a rich set of influences, yet all of her songs pulse with a similar emotional force. Her songwriting expresses her outre perspective on human nature and her somewhat futuristic take on the existential conundr...
