Mapstone define a new genre – ‘Heart/Roots’ music
Having just returned from touring Canada, they are ready for a full summer festival season in Australia. Theses musicians are committed to their path and dedicated to living a life of purpose and meaning.

Mapstone will activate all your chakras with growling didge & bass grooves, that lock onto drum and percussion rhythms, melodic guitars, folk harmonica, ukes, soaring flutes and vocals – all this from the dynamic threesome of Dion, Prhlad, Chris and a forever expanding and changing group of guest musicians
Created in Byron shire from pure light & love, blissed & blessed, from our heart to your heart which is our heart

“Mapstone’s conscious Heart root’s music is infectious to the soul, uplifting and leaves you calling for more. Full of joy, depth, inspiration and spirit, this is a band with a mission with enough heart to see it through. Do yourself a favour and experience this musical medicine.”

Mapstone have quickly emerged onto the roots music scenes in Australia, Canada and Bali. Together for just 18 months they have already shared the stage with Nahko and medicine for the people, Dustin Thomas, the Beautiful Girls, Murray Kyle and more. Mapstone have been moving the dance floor and delighting ears wherever they go, including prestigious festivals such as Woodford folk festival, Bali spirit festival and island vibe festival. Their blend of conscious roots, world, reggae, and folk music is of the heart, for the heart and from the heart. In-joy the medicine.

Tom Richardson


Tom Richardson’s music may be best categorised into experiences and emotions than genre. An adventurous yet humble nomad, in the past two years alone, Tom has performed in 15 different countries across the globe. In an age where it’s all too easy for young musicians to be caught in the tide of ever changing trends, online overkill and pressures to be the “next big thing”, Tom has stepped into the side stream, appreciating the freedom of exploration and the privilege of forging relationships with listeners and cultures around the world.

“What is more exhilarating than the beauty of
adventure and connection?!
Music has been the vehicle that has allowed me to continually experience both of these things.”

With an infectious and genuine demeanor, Tom speaks and sings from a place of truth – At a live performance, it’s not uncommon to experience people laughing, crying, dancing and singing – often long after the show has finished. Tom has been known to have entire theatres leaving his show, continuing to sing in unison all the way out.

Tom uses the latest in loop pedal technology to create incredible soundscapes, overdubbing four part vocal harmonies, complicated percussion grooves and lead and rhythm guitar parts, all live on stage. Dancing around the stage, Tom uses his feet, hands and voice to create different song sections and preserving song writing integrity, starting, stopping and layering various instruments as he goes.

“Performing onstage, especially as a solo artist,
can be both incredibly terrifying & incredibly freeing.

While it will always be a work in progress, my greatest challenge & ultimate endeavor by the end of each show is to have no distance, no hierarchy & no difference between myself, as the artist, & the audience, as the listener.
When it all comes together, that collective energy & unity
is pretty hard to describe!”

Combining his love of music, yoga, travelling and ocean culture, Tom also loves finding the time whilst travelling the world to empower ambitious, wheelchair bound youths through adaptive surfing and skating programs, through the organisations ‘Ocean Healing Group’ and ‘Sharing The Stoke’.

“My choice to be true as a person is a
personal daily adventure.

Through the evolution of my travel,
& both musical & non-musical relationships,
to be honest & truthful in music is a given.

I no longer feel there is a choice!”

TiMBAH, Australia’s answer to the Dave Matthews Band, tour relentlessly and – like their North American spiritual siblings – invariably win over crowds where ever they go with their lively brand of folk-jazz-rock-blues fusion.

In the beginning just two brothers, TiMBAH now moves a variety of audiences from their seats with a strong and talented outfit of five. Lead by the intricate guitar work and age-less voice of Nye Stewart, and backed by the rollicking percussion of brother Abe; TiMBAH’s nucleus inspires all.

Rivalling many folk frenzies’ among us, TiMBAH would not be complete without their remaining dedicated ensemble; jamming on anything from fiddle to banjo, harp, clarinet, bass, keyboard, or melodica. Emerging from the low end, steadfast and smooth, comes Nick Warren on the Bass radiating spicy and electrifying grooves. Bursting from the seams the exceptionally talented Nicholas ‘springy’ Springall emits a unique phalanges’ dance on keyboard. While the poignant, yet energetic violin, poking jovially between riffs by Christopher Gillespie enhances every song.

TiMBAH are a uniquely gifted and charismatic collective. Bounding between genres with creative poise and diversifying musicianship this band will continue to pave the path to musical greatness!
