From the lower south side of Plymouth (accent optional) a duo called Kepler Junction emerge.
A Band of brothers... well, two actually, and not brothers either, they make a lot of noise... guitars (some meaningful solos) bass (hits the spot) drums (strong and steady) keys (haunting, yet emotional) and vocals (great vocals and harmonies well thought out lyrics). On the whole a full-powered unit capable for delivering catchy rock (dare I say pop) songs of the highest calibre.
They have a desire to make music.
After travelling to Kepler Junction, via Nepalese temples learning the ancient ways we decide to cooperate again, live in the Cave (head torches optional) work as if there’s no tomorrow and this is what happens...
Putting the tunes into the machine, producing a mixture of tones and tempo’s to provide the listener with songs full of hooks which draw you in and provide a soundtrack for wherever it fits.

Lee-Leet is an independent singer-songwriter who plays the piano since she was 7 years old. She released her self-produced debut album "State of Emergency" in December 2009 with 10 songs. The full album is available at www.lee-leet.com or at www.merlin.com.pl and www.musicnet.pl.
"This album is hard to classify as it doesn't follow any trends or fashions. It doesn't try to fit into the current "hot sells" category either. No, Lee-Leet sang and played what she felt and what she wanted. We keep our fingers crossed! It looks like a great beginning" - said Grzegorz Zembrowski, a music journalist at the leading Polish nationwide radio station (PR 3).
Lee-Leet is an entirely independent artist on the Polish music scene and this is by no means her only differentiator. Her album "State of Emergency" quickly gathered interest of the radio listeners despite no promotional efforts. It were the listeners who started sending emails to Lee-Leet's website congratulating her on the album. She didn't expect that the one and only radio station where she dropped off her brand new CD on the way from work would just start, well, to play it... But Lee-Leet is in no hurry to enter the so called "main stream". She enjoys her independence and the freedom to experiment. Her melodious songs stay on the mind. Some say they are addictive. Lee-Leet's music is distinct and highly emotional. Lee-Leet is an example that entirely independent and artist self-driven music productions can successfully take off the ground. She is currently working on her second album.

We originally formed with a sole purpose in mind. What started out as a regular jam session between Jo and Monkey (Adrian) inspired Jo to take the next step and record, not only for herself but with the determination to put together a compilation album of local musicians which would raise awareness for Auto Immune Disorders having all proceeds go to Arthritis QLD.
In the early stages Jo and Erin crossed paths and it was believed a saxophone would compliment the jamming duo. This was the birth of not only “Moscato” but of 3 beautiful friendships that we feel blessed to have.
Within 13 weeks of our 1st rehearsal we completed our 1st of what will be many recording.
These Original songs were placed alongside Original pieces written and performed by some of the most unique and talented musicians Mackay has to offer, all with one goal in mind, to raise awareness with an album title of “Broken Silence”.
As we drove the gruelling 10+hour trip back to our hometown we were in awe of what we had achieved in such a short period. The common travellers question of “Are we there yet?” was replaced by “Wow, did that really just happen? “.
Now knowing what could be accomplished our minds were filled with possibilities and we were eager to work on our next E.P. A decision was made to record in 6 months with Erin relieving Jo of lead vocals whose lungs (due to auto immune disorders) were not strong enough.
With each finished EP our confidence and creativity grows, it only seemed fitting that we expand our much loved trio. In October 2014 we met Kerin Shaw who has played in various rock bands throughout his life, it was certain that it was in the stars as his can do/give anything a go/ laid back attitude was much like our own, not to mention his unique style of bass playing complimented what we had already accomplished. In November 2014 we also welcomed Kristen Anderson who would join Erin as lead vocalist. As we work on our next EP the two girls prove unlike any other females as they end each song with a high five working as what we believe is an unstoppable vocal team. With Kristen's background being Country and Theater she really brings something different to the table, and with all our minds combined we feel we are finding our feet as to where our path now leads and we are really excited to record this next EP soon after in July so we can share it with you all. Erin has left to pursue other Avenues but we will also enjoy the Talents of Kaz accompanying Kristen on Vocals and Bringing ,Cello,Sax and Keys, Just Pup, Lead guitar , and Laka on Drums joining us on our "Adrift " EP, We know our music is not everyone's cup of tea, but this is us, this is who we are and this is what we love doing. Whether this disc makes you smile, want to relax, want to dance or take a step back to notice what is going on in the world even for a second then it has all been more than worth it,, and even if it doesn’t have this effect … we will just keep on recording and releasing because it’s what we love.
This is us, we are “Moscato” and we thank you from the very bottom of our heart for allowing us to share with you our music.
We hope you enjoy it!!
Jo, Kerin, Kristen, Kaz, Just Pup, Laka , Monkey and Previously, Erin,
