Featuring Isaiah Firebrace
Isaiah Firebrace is coming to Community Christmas Carols 2019 at Avondale School! Isaiah has an incredible story. As a young boy he had nothing, except a dream. He attended high school on the banks of the Murry River and went without food in order to fund the 6 hours of travel that was required to get to his singing lessons. He couldn’t borrow a dollar to buy lunch, but he knew his dream would become real, and one day he would be an international recording artist. In the past three years, the talented teen has transformed from a small town singer to one of Australia’s most successful artists. Along the way he’s won The X Factor, was signed to Sony Music, represented Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. His debut single released by Sony Music ‘It’s Gotta Be You’ has notched up over 230 million international streams. This statistic put Isaiah in the position of having the highest streaming song of any Australian artists in 2018. Isaiah’s incredible voice has been the reason for the songs high connectivity world wide.
Featuring Nay Nay
We are excited to announce our special children's artist for Community Christmas Carols is Nay Nay from ABC Kids! Nay Nay is a tinkerer. She’s gutsy, adventurous and loves to laugh. An explorer at heart, Nay Nay sees the world as a Tinkerer’s playground. A land full of living and mechanical wonders to learn and play with. Nay Nay is the newest sensation at ABC Kids and her music videos are on ABC TV. Nay Nay believes both girls, and boys, have the ability to create the world of their imagination. She encourages Tinkerers to try new things because she knows making a mistake is okay, you just learn from it and try again! And watch out for those moments of triumph, Nay Nay will sing the house down!
Sibling duo JANEY have entered the sonic realm with a dark electronic dream pop sound sitting somewhere between Bruce Springsteen and Haim. Members Sarah and Billy Otto have been noted for their high energy and eccentric live performance. The Newcastle natives heralded their debut track; the synth anthem, ‘Today Could Be the Day’, through a nationwide Jetstar campaign. ‘L.A.’, their recently released sophomore single was produced in collaboration with Gang of Youths drummer, Donnie Borzestowski, and mixed by Veronica Ferraro (P!NK, David Guetta, Kelly Rowland). Prolific songsmiths and reflective thinkers, JANEY are excited to release their debut EP next year, expressing to the world their existential questions and the rawness of life. This is JANEY.
