ustralian The Voice Finalist 2014 Elly Oh is set to release her debut single “Real Men Cry”. The inspiration behind this song was when Elly saw her Dad cry for the first time when she moved to Australia. It explains how real men should not be afraid to show their emotions even when they are sad but also when they are happy.
Born in South Korea in the city of Incheon, Elly Oh has been in the music industry for over 10 years. She first discovered her passion for music when she was 18 years old after volunteering to sing to an old patient at the hospital where the nurse thought Elly had an amazing voice. She later studied opera from the local opera teacher in Incheon, after her parents suggested it to her as a means of providing Elly with a foundation for singing.
After studying Bachelor of Opera at the University of Hanyang in South Korea, Elly moved to Italy to pursue her opera career and complete a diploma of Opera.
Elly has performed at various Opera events including places in Italy, Korea and also in Sydney. She has won various awards for her Opera abilities including first prize in the McDonalds Opera competition (World Song).
After moving to Sydney, Australia Elly has changed her vocal style to pop as she enjoyed the upbeat music. She is currently teaching students to sing in a private studio based on her Opera techniques as well as performing the occasional special event.
In May 2014, Elly appeared on the Voice Australia 2014 where she blew away 4 coaches within 5 secs of her blind audition with her powerful rendition of Jessie J's "Mama Knows Best". She continued to wow Australia and the world alongside her mentor and coach Ricky Martin with her Opera voice in the battle rounds and was clearly the early favourite to win the Voice Australia 2014.
Moving to Sydney only 5 years ago, knowing very little english, Elly found the courage and motivation to audition on national television for The Voice Australia 2014, placing her in the Top 12 out of 8000 plus auditionees and is now considered one of Australia's most loved artists.
Elly has also performed for many celebrities including His Excellency General The Hon. Sir Peter John Cosgrove, The Melbourne Storm, Ms. Margie Abbott and Ms. Sophia Loren to name a few and has acted alongside Jack Thompson and Brendan Cowell in the iconic Australian film, Ruben Guthrie. Elly is set to release her worldwide debut single "Real Men Cry" on 15th April 2016.

he more I listen to Station by SLTP (Summer Loving Torture Party), the more I like it. It’s a song that makes me think of bands like Shopping– which is not bad at all. In fact that makes it VERY good indeed!
This single comes out on April 29th via iTunes. It has been mixed and mastered to perfection – every little note is transparent – it’s gorgeous! I really appreciate the quality and hard work the band put into this passionate work, and I’m more than sure it’ll pay off. If you like it, order the single, follow them on Soundcloud and mark them as “must-see” at The Great Escape Festival this Spring: put May 19th-21st in your calendar! - FRESH ON THE NET

Earlier in 2015, his “COMET” EP instantly climbed into BEATPORT Top 5, now nearing 1million plays on Spotify, and prompted EDM act Above & Beyond to propose him a guest mix spot on their massively famous “Group Therapy” radio show.
Luke follows up with his own take on indie pop cult classic “Opium” from The New Division, retaining the 2012 track original vocal and delivering a hypnotic and modern progressive house number.

Plastic Head is one of the leading music distributors in the UK, especially where rock/metal music is concerned and have charted artists including Anthrax, Gaslight Anthem, Green Day and grunge legends The Screaming Trees in the Independent and National Charts. April 2015 they signed to Holier Than Thou Records.

Squirrel vs Snake" is a state of the 'disunion' in the USA and beyond... the disharmony, the threats to intellectual freedom, and the cynicism and lies we take for granted now in the age of doublespeak. It has an awesome big sentimental chorus.
The new single is called Youniversum. It will be self-released as a digisingle on 23rd of March. Available on Spotify, Deezer, iTunes, Amazon etc
