VOLUME 1 // MARCH 5TH
Ready to bring forth a new wave of inspiring, authentic music Australia has barely touched, CEEKO is a South African-born artist that now calls Melbourne home. However, he draws inspiration from his roots, combining afro-beat rhythms, melodies and spirit that influence his natural R&B/Soul cadence to create a distinctive sound within Melbourne’s growing musical climate.
A new voice in the RnB soundscape, Pania is a West Melbourne-based singer, rapper & songwriter – who naturally commands attention via her music and raw emotion, whilst maintaining full elegance and class. Having announced herself as an RnB powerhouse in 2018 with her debut release ‘Lotus’, listeners have been drawn to her reflective lyrics, heartfelt singing style and eye-catching flair. Since then, Pania has gone from strength to strength, channelling the energy of strong female forces into her own independent movement for all to bear witness. Drawing upon a mix of influences from the 90s till now, her love for RnB, Hip Hop, Jazz & Soul can be seen and heard within her music and style.
Hailing from Sydney’s west, 22 year old Fasika is an artist to keep your eye on. Born to a Filipino Mother and Ethiopian father, she has always had a strong connection with culture and diversity. Her innate musical abilities allowed her to thrive, and at the age of 18, she decided that music was something she wanted to pursue more seriously.
Being influenced by Whitney Houston, Etta James, Jazmine Sullivan, Beyonce and Brandy to name a few, Fasika is drawing on all of her influences that encompass R&B, Neo-Soul, and Jazz to find a sound that blends her favourite things about music.
Expect to see Fasika’s worlds collide and transform as she unveils her truest form, and will no doubt blossom into the soulful colours of sound that Australia is needing.
