Crossover is Bonnie Stewart’s latest project. Her ethereal voice and percussive textures sail through her evolving compositions, flowing together with the lush and playful tones of Luke Sweeting and distinctive experimental sounds of Peter Farrar. Crossover forges an amalgam of improvisation, haunting melodies, and polyphonic soundscapes.

Pheno (AKA electric guitarist/vocalist Jess Green) brings 21st century science to the wild rhythms of Afrobeat, indie rock and jazz. You may have seen her with The catholics, Jim Conway, The 10 Guitar project, Gary Daley, or her own bands. As Pheno she has created a new sonic world to live in, her music layers shimmering electric guitar, electro synths and beats with a stomping backbeat and powerful vocals.
