"Grow Your Own Review 2008"

The Grow Your Own series is a compilation released by Damien Gerard Studios and Foghorn Records, drawing together an array of unsigned Australian artists. They are also responsible for releasing volume twelve – the second one for 2008 – that contains nineteen tracks from various genres.
Unfortunately, this release is offered in an environment where music snobbery prevails and many people are hesitant to listen to material from acts they have not yet “heard” about, and others who are using the Internet to learn about new artists. Thus, these people have an uphill battle in nurturing the careers of these up-and-comers, which is a shame given the level of talent on offer here.
Song, They Don’t Make Boys Like They Used To by Illicit Eve could in fact be Ella Hooper performing a Killing Heidi song. In essence, it is a ballsy rock song fronted by a pouting fem fatale lusting for her boy from yesteryear. Similar sentiments are offered in the subsequent track, Jesus Ain’t My Boyfriend by Squeaker. However, the latter is some decent electro-pop with a message that reminds me of those “Jesus is my homeboy” t-shirts.
Tracks, Take It Easy by Unique Existence hints at Green Day’s Hitchin’ A Ride and Baby by Stella’s Kitchen is like The Living End with a twist of funk. Other genres also appear with Reflector’s “ Believe” sounding like Missy Higgins’ Steer. And The Fear’s Roymackonkey manifests like Something For Kate, as the singer has similar vocals to Paul Dempsey.
Pollution by Zenith ASP feels like the John Butler Trio performed by a heavy rock act. Then the release concludes with Firehouse’s Devil’s Disaster which is like a Dallas Crane rock song peppered with some wailing Jimi Hendrix guitar riffs.
In all, the release is a sound one by some new, unsung artists and the next crop of unsigned acts. With the pleasing music on offer here, one can only hope it is a matter of time before they venture into the world of commercial music debuts.

"Feb 2007 Showcase"

Rockstar Magazine
By Sallyanne Ryan

Late last year these guys scored the support gig for 80’s legends Toto at the Metro. Forced to play acoustic due to a severe lack of stage space they wooed the 1200 audience. Lads if you have seen them and you are now forever entranced by the vision that is lead singer Jessica Boudville and you happen to come across her at a bar sometime don’t ask for her myspace address. As Jessica and I have a bit of a chuckle about the potential ‘pick-up zone’ it is she says “People picking you up in a club these days don’t ask for a phone number they just ask for a myspace and I don’t myspace on the first date!” tee hee hee…she’s funny too.

Ok so we’ve established that Jessica is a hottie and if you check out the tracks you’ll hear that she has a voice to match, but enough of her for there are others involved.
Reflector is made up of Michael Katselos – Guitar, Borce Todorovski – Keys and Rocky Todorovski – Bass. Guess what though? They are currently seeking high, seeking low and advertising on their myspace page for a drummer!!

“Lady Lindsay” is the groups first EP as well as the first time working with a Producer. “The outside influence of a Producer brings new ideas and helps you to not get too personally attached” offers Borce. When I ask what made them decide to have it mastered in New York the response is pretty much “why not when it is only and extra $50 a day to have the renowned Sterling Sound do it”

If you haven’t seen or heard Reflector, visit their website or myspace for a sample and upcoming gig dates. Or drop by and buy and EP you tight arse!
