This event is all ages

Featuring siblings George, Amy and Emma, Brisbane-based indie 6-piece Sheppard have rapidly risen to fame, developing from unknowns just twelve months ago, to one of the biggest Australian acts on commercial radio - scoring multiple TV appearances and becoming one of the most - watched Aussie acts by the international music industry.

Sheppard have already started making serious waves overseas, with many sold-out headline shows, festivals and showcase performances abroad. Their latest worldwide sojourn (their 5th in 14 months) included performances at the most in-demand CMJ Music Marathon showcases in New York, and a standout appearance on Netherlands national youth radio broadcaster 3FM - all off the back of an acclaimed performance at Brisbane's Bigsound conference in September.

The band's breakthrough hit 'Let Me Down Easy' ignited radio airwaves around the world in 2013, hitting the Top 20 ARIA and airplay charts in Australia and the Top 10 in Thailand. The single, which is on its way to 130,000 sales, cracked the Top 100 on the CMJ college radio charts in the US last year and received further chart success in New Zealand, Holland and Thailand.

The band is currently in the studio working on their highly anticipated debut album (due mid-2014).

"Glossy electro-pop shows no sign of ceasing at this year's fest. Down in the tight spots of a packed studio at Webster Hall, Brisbane's Sheppard brought happiness and hand claps."

"The highlight of the night, Sheppard's energy was infectious. They really knew how to get the audience involved, dancing and singling along with them.Sheppard was probably my favorite out of all of the bands I saw over the course of CMJ 2013."

Dylan Gardner
It’s a coming-of-age tale equally ripe for the big screen or NETFLIX…

At the tender age of three, Dylan Gardner took the stage for the first time in a packed Chicago blues bar, rocking the maracas to an uproar of applause as he accompanied his dad’s band. Fast forward a few years, he spent countless hours in the family’s instrument shop in Naperville, IL before eventually relocating to Arizona during 2010. The budding 15-year-old songwriter personally chose to be home-schooled so he could devote as much time as possible to writing and recording music and amassing a High Fidelity-size vinyl collection John Cusack could appreciate. With an encyclopedic musical knowledge that could power a streaming service search engine, fashion sense right at home in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, and the uncanny superpower to craft irresistible pop anthems, the singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer made a big splash in 2014 with his Warner Bros. Records debut, Adventures In Real Time, which he co-produced and served as sole writer for.

Representing a decidedly 21st century pop vanguard, his inimitable style immediately resonated with everyone from Team Coco and The Huffington Post to YouTube juggernauts including Shane Dawson and Joey Graceffa. Among 100-plus shows, he toured with Emily Kinney of The Walking Dead and stirred up over 10 million Spotify streams for his single “Let’s Get Started.” Now, the 21-year-old artist speaks a new dialect that’s fresh, fun, and fiery on the 2017 single “Sign Language.” Shuffling from a slick acoustic guitar lick into the handclap-driven hook, “All I need is just a little sign language, show me that you’re mine baby,” He creates a soundtrack to young love co-produced by Dylan and collaborator Matt Rad (Martin Garrix, Demi Lovato) and co-written with Rad and hitmakers, Teddy Geiger (Shawn Mendes’ “There's Nothing Holding Me Back”), John Ryan (Pitbull’s “Fireball”), and Julian Bunetta (One Direction “Made In The A.M.”).

“To me that song is about my shyness in relationships,” he admits. “I’m admitting my shortcomings and asking for a little sign, because I’m too flabbergasted to say anything. It was a big growth moment to admit and say that.”

Right out of the gate, “Sign Language” generated over a million Spotify streams, landing on key playlists, and organically amassing more plays by the day. It’s just one side of his style though. His musical appreciation spans everything from K-Pop to hip-hop. Look no further than his fan favorite social media tradition #WaxWednesday on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. He’s just as quick to extol Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main St. and share a story about writing in Nice, France as he is to geek out on OutKast’s Stankonia and detail “the coolest night of my life” hanging with Big Boi and Killer Mike in the former’s Atlanta creative hive. It’s in these heartwarming recollections like being there for fun.'s first live shows and reconnecting with Jack Antonoff at a Songwriting event that illuminate Dylan’s spirit. He’s inviting everyone along for the ride with “Sign Language.”

“I’d love for people to escape from whatever they’re going through across my songs,” he leaves off. “I’m a songwriter first and foremost, and I want to connect with what I write. If it changes one person’s life for the better, that’s enough for me.
