Mr. Germain (new music in bio) I went to New Orleans for Jazz Fest 2017, purely to see Stevie Wonder play (seeing him live was always a massive bucket list tick of mine) I spent three weeks there riding a rusty old bike around I found on Craigslist, eating all of the southern soul food and writing music. The idea came while walking down a suburban NOLA street one day, and a homeless man walking in the other direction said, “Hey, stand tall! Hold your head high…”……. This completely stopped me in my tracks.. One – because of the beautiful irony of being reminded to be grateful by one who doesn’t even have enough money for his next meal, let alone a roof over his head, was quite sobering to say the least. And two – it felt like he new exactly what I was thinking within that moment. The seed for the song then grew as I rode through Holygrove recieving looks like – boy you either not from around here (clearly) or very dumb (maybe a bit of both); to being called ‘Baby’ with every supermarket visit; and to the old mythical vampire tale of Jacques St. Germain – who they say lived in the Frenchmen Quarter in the early 1900’s. The name ‘St. Germain’ actually popped up a few times on my US trip, as he was also known as the alchemist of Mount Shasta, where I spent the most part of my time writing the album.

Thundamentals also kicked off their epic national tour recently at a packed Forum Theatre in Melbourne, and now take in all capital cities across the next month before wrapping up in Fremantle on Saturday 8th December. In an exciting first after ten years of touring, Tuka, Jeswon and Morgs are joined on stage by a full six-piece band, headed by album co-producer Carl Dimataga, giving fans across the country the opportunity to immerse themselves in the live energy of the I Love Songs tracks and revel in Thundas classics in an entirely new light. Limited tickets are still available for the remaining dates.
In addition, after partnering with The Asylum Seeker Center in 2016 and the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in 2017, Thundamentals have announced the next chapter of their Got Love Initiative, donating all profits from the 2018 edition of the Got Love t-shirt to the Gadigal Information Service, home of Koori Radio 93.7 FM. Since it’s establishment in 1993, Gadigal has been the leading Indigenous cultural, arts and media organisation in NSW. A core element of the service is to provide a multi-faceted platform for the diverse talents of Indigenous people, and by developing and promoting our communities capabilities to deliver a broader appreciation of Indigenous arts and culture to Australian society.

Fresh from joining the Elefant Traks crew on RAGE and triple j’s Like A Version, supporting Urthboy, performing with Mojo Juju,and jumping up on stage to perform with both L-FRESH the LION and OKENYO at the Elefant Traks 20th birthday celebrations, Mirrah’s new single ‘Hold On’ proves she really is not only one of the most exciting artists in the scene right now, but also one of the most innovative and versatile voices as well.
With an extensive history in hip-hop both as an artist and dancer, Mirrah has spent the last few years performing and collaborating with L-FRESH the LION, while working on her own music. Focusing on the power and importance of self-love, Mirrah channels her life experience into her storytelling and poetry, while using pop-influenced soul and hip-hop beats which she rides with ease.
‘Hold On’ is all about remembering what is really important: good friends, living in the moment, and of course, love. Inspired by the mad rush of stores during Christmas time and how easily lost people became in their hunt for meaningless gifts, Mirrah reminds us all to never lose sight of those gifts that you can’t buy.
Taken from her forthcoming EP, LOVE, Mirrah channels conscious hip-hop influences like A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Common, Rapsody and even Kendrick Lamar as she lets her message out into the world. Now, as she steps back into the well-deserved spotlight, Mirrah brings her trademark soulful, passionate rhymes coupled with 90’s influenced beats and grooves with her, and with her forthcoming EP release, she aims to provide a bit of comfort and solace in a world that makes that hard to find.
You can now pre-order our forthcoming album ‘The Great Expanse’ on Coloured vinyl. https://hilltophoods.lnk.to/TheGreatExpanse
