Using their craft to navigate the world around him, Forest Claudette has been captivating audiences with their unique blend of R&B and pop. Claudette’s ability to experiment and seamlessly merge different genres and styles has created a sound that is both refreshingly new and familiar. His debut EP, The Year of February, showcases this perfectly.

Lead single “Creaming Soda” dives deep into finding the balance between fear and expectation as he enters the music industry, a feeling many new artists can relate to. The track is interwoven with a heavenly vocal range and youthful abandon.

The follow-up track from the EP, “Gone Without A Trace”, chalked up enough plays on triple j to be second-most-played chart and #69 on the Airplay chart. Claudette has received a stack of praise, including being named the ‘Up Next Local’ artist by Apple Music and being recognized as one of triple j’s standout acts.

Having wrapped up a run of sold-out headline shows Forest Claudette has recently released another single from their EP, “Mess Around” featuring American hip-hop duo EARTHGANG. The track again showcases Claudette’s ability to uniquely fuse R&B, pop, hip-hop, and rap, resulting in soundscapes that oscillate between textural sonics and atmospheric production.

Ruel is both a seasoned international performer and a record-breaking musician for tomorrow’s generation. Since making his debut in 2017 when he was just fourteen, the London-born, Sydney-raised artist has fast become one of his generation’s most influential musicians. Sitting with over 2 billion global streams and 1.2 million Instagram followers, the pop sensation also holds ground-breaking records as the youngest artist ever to win Breakthrough Artist at the ARIA Awards and as the youngest musician to sell out the Sydney Opera House… twice.

Last month, Ruel’s long-awaited debut studio album, 4TH WALL hit the ground running. The album boasts a constellation of fresh and exciting tracks, along with chart-topping singles like “GROWING UP IS____” and “I DON’T WANNA BE LIKE YOU”.
