About the Performers:

Legendary Indigenous musician Joe Geia is set to hit the stage for a night of song and storytelling . Geia is a renowned singer/songwriter, guitarist, didgeridoo player and influential figure in the development of contemporary Indigenous music. He writes music of bravery and beauty, telling of Aboriginal life in Australia, of the quest for justice and belonging, of history, family and love.

“I want to promote change and understanding, melodically and harmoniously,” he says, “while still sharing the little known aspects of Aboriginal history.”

Geia is perhaps best known for his song Yil Lull, regularly described as Australia’s unofficial Indigenous national anthem.

The Deans bring classic soul sounds and grooves into the gritty modern metropolis of Melbourne’s Rock City. Formed back in 2002, reinvented in 2012, and sounding like 1967. The Deans are like a United Nations of Indigenous and immigrant Australians unified in the one Soul groove:

Linc Yow Yeh - Singer/Song-writer/Guitarist. Master of the Stratocaster; Linc plays like Jimi Hendrix, and sings like Marvin Gaye. Linc is a Goreng Goreng man raised in Brisbane but whose traditional country is around Bundaberg and Rockhampton.

Bradley Boon - Drums. Brad is a Kurnai man from Gippsland. Behind the kit he loves smashing it out one moment, and holding it back the next.

Nick Larkins - Bass. Nick is a musical nomad from Tasmania who has played with ARIA award winning acts Wild Pumpkins At Midnight, Dan Rumour (The Cruel Sea) and Monique Brumby.

The Deans also utilise the special talents of two soul-diva keyboard vocalists; Sophie Dickson and Monet Hawkins, and two red hot wind instrumentalists; Emelia Wilmot and Kellie O’Donohue. They add authentic depth and sass, as well as an exciting visual and aural dimension to this already rock steady soul groove. In certain circles they have been affectionately dubbed The Deanettes.

Born and raised in Melbourne, Maylene Slater-Burns spent her youth growing up in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. After finishing high school, the talented pianist and guitarist went on to have an amazing experience living in Adelaide, South Australia where her days were filled with studying, networking and making sweet music at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies in Music.

Upon returning to Melbourne mid 2011, the proud Kamilaroi and Nawagi woman began to drive her energy towards strengthening her Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community by supporting efforts to instil positive change.

Music has united kindred spirits, and today, Maye stands by many talented local Indigenous Artists campaigning and celebrating the resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Islanders people of Australia.
