Describing herself as a “Z-grade Madonna from Venus, Texas, controlling a microcosm of Yamahas and synthetic electro-machines”, Scraps is the moniker for local Brisbane artist Laura Hill. Starting in 2006 with little more than a small keyboard she got given as a gift, Scraps has released numerous recordings in various formats and has lit dance floors not only in Australia, but around the world as well. She also crafts her own merch from t-shirts to tote bags

You might know Ela Stiles from some of the bands she’s played in over the last couple of years: Songs and Bushwalking. It was the band Songs which she began with Max Doyle that saw her focus shift from modelling to music. She’s been a member of Songs since 2007 and Bushwalking started as a psych three-piece that she originally formed to work on her solo songs. It turned out to be more of a band than a solo project and they released their second LP ‘No Enter’ in September 2013. In 2014, Ela released her debut self-titled solo record on Bedroom Suck Records which which displays her discovering her vocal talents through experimentation.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 7-8pm, Sunday 6th March 2016.
Show production and engineering: Branko Cosic.
