    Fabrizio Cammarata

    Singer-Songwriter

    Singer-Songwriter Fabrizio Cammarata tells intimate stories of love and loss through his distinctive soulful voice and elegant guitar mastery; mesmerizing audiences from stages great and small across the globe. Fabrizio conjures fantasies containing light and shadow, tales of his experiences of travel and from his hometown of Palermo, Sicily.

    The restlessly creative Cammarata studies the arts, favours Latin American literature, has written books, theatre plays and worked on movies. Sharing stages with the likes of Ben Harper, Patti Smith, Daniel Johnston, Emilíana Torrini, he has honed his uniquely romantic interpretation of Indie-Folk. A life lived is condensed into the new album 'Of Shadows', that was produced with Dani Castelar (Paolo Nutini, Editors, REM) and is released on 800A/Kartel Music Group and Haldern Pop Recordings November 17th 2017, following the EP “In Your Hands”.

    "The proper function of man is to live, not to exist."
    Jack London (Author of The Call of the Wild)

    You could say Australian born singer songwriter Harrison Storm personifies that eloquent edict of carpe diem. Under the cover of sand and waves, the fabled Australian beach life defined Harrison's formative years.

    Harrison reveals "since I was knee high I've been around surfing, all thanks to my dad." Dad competed regularly, and the family devoted weekends to watching him at state competitions. Often, father challenged son, bringing Harrison out in turbulent conditions to "learn the lessons from the ocean" -- from surfing in the middle of winter snowstorms to facing massive waves that "demanded respect."

    Surfing remained a family affair as holidays centered on beach camping and surf events. "A home away from home," Harrison recalls how, "The most treacherous waters somehow became safer knowing what dad taught me over the years."

    This upbringing by the sea, translated into a love of adventure that he still carries with him today, finding chances to take on new challenges. Diligently chasing his musical dream with a sense of urgency, he organized and launched a popular "acoustic night" in his quaint beachside hometown of Mornington in Victoria at 20-years-old. Two years later, he dropped out of university to solely devote his days to busking for tourists in Melbourne, eventually making enough to finance his 2015 debut EP Sense of Home, produced by friend Hayden Calnin. Its title track would place prominently on key Spotify playlists, amassing an impressive 10 million+ streams and catching the attention of Nettwerk C.E.O. and co-founder Terry McBride, who personally signed Storm after sending him a Facebook message.

    It's been a lifelong journey for the troubadour to reach this point. Growing up on the Mornington Peninsula, a five-minute walk from the ocean, he fell in love with music as a young kid. Mum taught him to play "Blackbird" as well as her own songs on a "beautiful Ibanez acoustic that found its way into every room of the house," while Dad penned poetry and played harmonica. Storm went from listening to Neil Young and The Beatles to becoming a disciple of Jeff Buckley, City and Colour, and Angus & Julia Stone by high school as well as devouring the works of Jack London. Along the way, he developed a singular style, merging impressive classically inspired finger-picking and a soulful hypnotic vocal delivery equally resonant of alternative, folk and blues.

    Sense of Home's success saw him perform to packed crowds across Melbourne, developing a powerful presence on stage alongside the likes of Michael Franti, The Cat Empire, Husky, and more. Simultaneously, he impacted Triple J and received airtime on U.S. tastemaker KCRW. He officially arrives on the global scene with his Nettwerk debut single "Change It All."

    Over minimal production, his delicate acoustic plucking immediately captivates. With a robust and dynamic voice, he croons, "All I see is how I could change it all. Find my peace, love I feel it's time to fall. For a new day, oh from silence. To a new state of mind."

    "I was in a real rut when I wrote this song. A sort of slow spinning, downward spiral you can find yourself in when things become monotonous," he admits. I was quite down about everything. I'm usually an optimistic person, but I wasn't enjoying music as much as I used to. Then, I got this message from Terry and it really lifted my spirits."

    Ultimately, "Change It All" sets the stage for Storm to impact listeners everywhere. "This is quite a personal one for me," he leaves off. "I'm really excited to see how it's received."

    "Change It All" out now via Nettwerk.

  • Hungry Lake

    Hungry Lake

    Alternative Rock

    Hungry Lake are a psychedelic folk-rock band from Toronto.  Meeting at Seneca’s Independent Music Program in 2008, founding members Joe Thomas and Ryan Webb formed the Lake’s first incarnation.  The band’s songwriting has grown more progressive in recent years with the addition of drummer Josh Park and bassist/keyboardist Greg Markov.  Focusing on arrangements and recording, the four cut their teeth on their self released debut album The Overpass, followed by 2017’s Raccoon EP.  Swirling guitars and enormous walls of sound are met with folk sensibilities to bring Hungry Lake’s sad stadium rock to the stage with force.  Plans for 2018 see the band embarking on a national tour to bring their upcoming album New Destruction to festivals and smaller communities with an intense and dynamic live show.
