Hailing from the beautiful pacific paradise of the Cook Islands, it’s clear the Island Vibe and Rhythms are embedded in Eshan Dean’s sound. Currently based in Canberra Eshan has performed and collaborated with many of the top Reggae artists in New Zealand and Australia. As well as being a gifted producer and songwriter Eshan is a staple of the Canberra Music Live Scene, he’s carved out for himself a unique sound that incorporates a fusion of reggae/RNB/hip-hop which is well received by those who hear him.

His first offering “Sailing Through the Storm” chronicles the challenges of life and his experiences in getting through them. He believes he’s lived enough life to feel confident in sharing his reflections through his music and plans on two more releases through 2024. 

Faasavala Junior Lokeni

When it comes to playing Bass guitar Junior has carved out a reputation as the go to man through many years of performing with a broad variety of artists and genres. A quietly soft spoken artist who mainly lets his Bass do the talking, this will be Junior’s debut performance as a vocalist. A talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter with a strong work ethic, adding singing to his set of musical skills won’t come as a surprise to anyone.

Grace Faletoese

Predominantly raised and influenced by gospel music from a young age, Grace has developed and honed her musical skills in a church environment. Her most recent experiences have been providing vocal and piano support for her older sister Olivia in her solo gigs. Whilst currently completing her studies in the engineering and science disciplines at ANU, Grace admits to enjoying playing and singing in front of an audience. This will be Grace’s first gig as a solo performer and we’re looking forward to hearing what she has to share.
