Clay Darius is known as The SOUL MAN of Perth. He first moved to Western Australia in 2010 withan extensive background in acting and musical theatre having made feature films andtelevision shows in New Zealand.
He met his now wife Paula at a karaoke bar in Perth and at first was hesitant to sing with someone he had never heard before. Their voices instantly blended on stage in a beautiful symphony of harmonies a standing ovation from the FULL HOUSE that watched in awe.
Since landing in Perth Clay’s musical prowess has grown immensely and he is able to command the stage with his soulful vocals and hisability to capture the audience’s attention with his powerful performance skills. Clay has been likened in sound and stage performance to Luther Vandross & Stevie Wonder.

AViiDA are Touring their debut EP “Dear Me”
Dear Me is the title track to their EP and is a song created late one night…they were reflecting on the life they lead and decided to write a letter to themselves telling them that they do music because you love it, you live it, you breathe it. Dear Me reminds us that we are allowed to have a bad day but life will get better.
“It makes us feel complete when we sing. Yes there are struggles along the way but its worth it.”
Bloom is an emerging Australian singer/songwriter gaining acclaim for her smooth deep vocals and her fresh ambient pop sound.
Although she finds inspiration in artists such as Banks & Lana Del Rey, Bloom ultimately covers ground that is uniquely her own.
She draws deep into the human condition to explore stories of loss and despair in an uplifting way that foregrounds hope and an appreciation of life stripped bare of the mundane and superficial distractions of everyday life.
These themes are universal in their appeal. With national & international performances to rave reviews under her belt, Bloom is primed for the next step – 2016 Australian Tour. Take the journey with her.
