As Australia's most promising pop ingénue, all eyes are on Samantha Jade. Despite the US music industry trying to steal her away from us (with an international multiple album record deal), a twist of fate has ensured Australia has her back in our arms. Her Australian debut album (a self-titled collection of cover songs) and three consecutive 2013 single releases were certified smash hits, and now Samantha Jade is ready to turn it "Up!" with her next big hit album, "Nine".
Tim Finn has enjoyed a unique and remarkable career. From his time with pop pioneers Split Enz (which he co-founded) and Crowded House to a successful solo career, Finn has shown no signs of slowing down, in the process penning such classics as Six Months In A Leaky Boat, Weather With You (with brother Neil Finn) and Persuasion (with Richard Thompson).
