The Brown Wunda
From picking up the guitar for the very first time pre-teens in NZ to playing in school and for church in Australia, Christian found an obsession with playing music and a curiosity for recording it.
The first recording studio setup was in a garage in Hassall Grove, nestled alongside a shop size freezer, throw away couches from the hospital, nic nacs galore and a family of red back spiders.
The first vocal booth was the cardboard box that fridges come in.
He quit his job as a Glazier, months before completing his apprenticeship and literally worked through frozen nights & scorching days in the garage. Recording. Writing. Playing. Dreaming.
‘A2’ (a play on his Samoan name Aitu) the composer, musician & music producer was born. Fast forward to writing music arrangements for Television, Australian Idol, X Factor, AGT. Producing albums for Sony Music.
Composer for Warner Chappell Music U.S.A.

Some Christmas / Holiday tunes just in time to celebrate the season.
A great ‘Crooner’ selection from this new and versatile young artist with an ear for timeless songs.
Andre Cordova is an Australian-born, Peruvian, independent singer-songwriter with a knack for versatility. Based in Sydney, but raised in the Western Suburbs, it may seem an unlikely place to find someone who can croon alongside the likes of Michael Bublé and Frank Sinatra, or tap into his Latin roots with Spanish lyrics, let alone persevere in styles such as Pop, Rock, Alternative, Indie, Folk, EDM, Experimental, Trap, Rap, Hip Hop, and a dash of Metal music.
Now, after an arduous year, Andre serenades the classics with his holiday cover album ‘Christmas Crooner’.
Australian music artist Anirban Jee just released his brand new single Mayday on 10th November 2020 which is a contemporary R&B track with an intimately universal lyric and stirring chorus hook. Mayday is a song that explores frayed human connection, relatable imagery and poetic persuasiveness. But it is also a track that encompasses positivity, with the warning call, the mayday, conjuring a sense of hope and reparation. The track is produced by Simon Cohen from Studios 301 in Sydney. The track is getting picked up by several national radio networks and is currently available for downloads and streaming via iTunes, Spotify and all popular online stores.
This new single follows Anirban’s previous releases, Deep Down feat. Mary Ann Van Der Horst(X-Factor artist)in 2016 and Undecided feat. Judd Fieldin 2014. Both tracks received airplay on commercial and community stations and garnered ecstatic media attention. This success sits alongside Anirban’s numerous awards and achievements collected recently, including Songwriter of the Year 2018 (Australian Songwriting Contest) and Songwriter of the Year 2017 (SongsAlive Australia).
Julie-Anne Marshall is a singer-songwriter hailing from Adelaide but currently residing in Melbourne. This artist keeps surprising us with her ability to move between genre’s as a songwriter and a performer. Heart and Soul is her latest release and differs in style to her previous release Rich Woman (a pop 40’s song with rap). Heart and Soul is a song of reflection with lyrics and vocals that are deep, raw and powerful. Julie-Anne has kept the recording of this song in it’s purest form, allowing the emotive vocals and lyrics to stand front and centre – vulnerable, raw and exposed with no where to hide.

Here’s the new single from Stuart Dwyer’s Debut EP ‘Before The Night’ featuring on soundslikecafe.
Stuart Dwyer is a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Sydney, Australia.
There are many ways to describe Stuart, unique, talented and charismatic just seem to scratch the surface. However, there is one word that ties them all together and is true to their character: Stuart’s music is Real. Few people sing so honestly from their heart and soul. Stuart’s music does so in just the right way, combining art, story, and song in perfect unison.
You can get a great sense from the video for the song shot in Tasmania
Stuart’s first EP “Before the night” was released in February 2020 with his next single “Nobody Else” due to be released in October 2020.
Australian blues, folk-rock and alt-country singer/songwriter/musician Adam Jones’ new single Fool In The House is released 11 September 2020. Adding ‘hip-hop’ to the acoustic blues that features on his first 3 studio albums, this socio-political song in support of racial equality, features a rap written and performed by 22 year old South African artist Sabelo Cyprian.
After seeing on the TV news the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement in response to the murder of African-American George Floyd, and some subsequent actions by the US President, Adam wrote this song on the 1st of June during the ‘pandemic lockdown’ in Melbourne, Victoria. Coincidentally, just after the decision had been made to record the song, Sabelo made contact with Adam after seeing his profile on social media and enjoying his music, and a rap was written and added to the song, with Sabelo going in to a recording studio in Durban, South Africa, to track his vocals.
Fool In The House was recorded at Echidna Studio in Christmas Hills, up the Yarra valley from Melbourne, by studio owner, engineer and talented musician Greg Macmillan, who performs bass guitar, electric lead guitar and congas, along with programming the drums and percussion and mixing the song. Fool In The House was then mastered by Andrew Beck at Damien Gerard Sound Studios, Sydney Australia.
“He’s the fool in the house on high while we fight on the street and die!”, implores Adam, before Sabelo raps about his experiences of racism growing up in South Africa. Adam concludes that “the righteous will no longer hide” and “we must give this world a better turn”.
