Peach Fur

GC Uncovered: Peach Fur

With Denny on vocals, Ben on lead guitar, Liam on bass and Mikey smashing the drums, Peach Fur have masterminded a four-piece collective.

Mixing the delectable flavours of rock ‘n’ roll brewed with a funky fusion of reggae & psych surf vibes these Gold Coast guys are on the up and up.

Chatting to 1029 Hot Tomato’s Pete ‘Scoot’ Carter on GC Uncovered tonight, Denny revealed how the band’s interesting name came about. “The name comes from my early teenage years when I was aspiring to get the ‘peach’. ‘Peach’ can mean whatever you want it too,” he said.

Peach Fur will be performing at Shakafest which is taking place at Miami Tavern this Saturday, details here.

The band also revealed that they will be recording a single in the near future, which they will be releasing “very soon”.

Ocean Parade

GC Uncovered: Ocean Parade

If you love rock’n’roll, Gold Coast band Ocean Parade will be right up your alley.

The 5-piece act got their confidence to start playing local gigs after 1029 Hot Tomato’s Scoot heard the boys, or shall we say dads, jamming out at a party.

“We owe you a hats off, because it was you that got us motivated,” guitarist John told the radio host during Gold Coast Uncovered tonight.

All 5 members of the band – John, Darren, Scott, Jason and Ian – are fathers and often cop criticism for being ‘daggy’.

“Our kids are all into the new age sort of stuff and we’re all still into rocking out,” said John.

Guitar

GC Uncovered: John Hosking

Although he was a passionate musician growing up, John Hosking was too shy to share his music with the world until mid 2014.

It wasn’t until he moved to the Gold Coast from Adelaide in 2014 that John completely opened up and released his music to the community.

With more time and calmer surroundings on the Gold Coast, John has spent the past two years polishing his song writing and broadening his acoustic playing.

Speaking to 1029 Hot Tomato’s Pete ‘Scoot’ Carter on GC Uncovered tonight, John says he draws inspiration from life when writing his songs. “I get my inspiration from family, friends, situations, past experiences, and even future experiences,” he said.

Eleea Navarro

GC Uncovered: Eleea Navarro

Eleea Navarro is an Australian musician/model with a mature sound and an innate gift for songwriting.

Becoming a finalist in Miss Universe Australia in 2014 and winning the talent section in Miss World Australia in 2016, Navarro is a knockout performer with the world at her feet.

Speaking to 1029 Hot Tomato’s Pete ‘Scoot’ Carter on GC Uncovered tonight, the 22-year-old said while she loves modelling, she has always had a fierce passion for her art, having grown up with musical parents.

“I grew up in Mullumbimby just near Byron Bay, on a farm there with my two older brothers and mum.”

“That’s where I started my music – my mum was a singer and she always pushed it as something we could do together and both loved.”

Eleea says her song lyrics are drawn from what goes on around her.

“I always draw from my own experiences, I listen to other people’s stories, I read stories – I pick up just one word and that might inspire a whole song.”

GC Uncovered: Mick McHugh

Mick McHugh is renowned as a performer who truly wears his heart on his sleeve.

A one-man band – he effortlessly plays the acoustic guitar and harmonica, all while performing foot percussion and singing.

With an array of heart touching, catchy songs, it’s not surprising that McHugh is often referred to as an Irish Cat Stevens.

Speaking to 1029 Hot Tomato Pete ‘Scoot’ Carter on GC Uncovered tonight, McHugh said: “Since coming over here a lot of Australian people have said that. It’s not something I modelled or studies but I was definitely influenced by some of his big hits.”
