At the age of nine, a young Joe Mungovan would never have imagined that begging his parents “for a drum kit for Christmas” would pave his way into some of the most prestigious stages in Australia. The now singer/songwriter, crashed his skateboard at the age of 13, leaving him unable to play his drumkit and in a wheelchair for 4 months. Joe taught himself guitar and unconsciously developed a style that blends indie folk and pop together to produce his unique style - drawing influence from the likes of Justin Vernon, James Blake and Feist. With attention to articulate lyrics, catchy melodies and rhythmic detail, Joe’s songs express his genuine emotion. His authenticity and passion is conveyed in his intimate live show, and is an experience not worth missing. ‘Be With You’ is the second release for Mungovan in 2019. He spent the first half of the year touring Europe in support of his latest single ‘Lost Myself’. The single gained attention with plays on both Triple J and Triple J Unearthed along with many other stations.

Sydney based Psycho Zydeco, or the Psychos as their fans affectionately dub them, have been one of the most successful Australian roots based bands for over 25 years now. With numerous tours, festivals and gigs throughout Australia and Europe, as well as four critically acclaimed albums, the band is enjoying performing live now more than ever.
The band has taken the stage with Zydeco legends Rockin’ Dopsie and Terrance Simien in the past. Both of these giants of the deep south have praised the band for capturing a true Zydeco sound that has an Australian kick and flavour. This is something that we are very proud of.
The band’s earthy blend of traditional Cajun, Blues and Swamp music produce a sound that is Psycho Zydeco. Driving washboard, drums, guitar, sax and the odd industrial sized triangle, combine with some amazing accordion playing that will make you feel so good you will want to grab a washboard and get up on stage and start scraping with the boys.
