Artists In Focus: Jason Delphin
Hailing from Devonport Tasmania, 35 year old Jason Delphin’s music is inspired by a rare combination of punk, blues and jazz or some may say after hearing him play ‘cow punk’.

His one-man -band style includes the use of genuine kick and snare drums, high hats, plus his signature 3 & 4 string cigar box guitars. Jason is committed to keeping it “sounding dirty” with unpredictable and improvised raw sounds.

Triple J’s Chris Thompson has commented, “Jason Delphin’s music is an unpredictable dynamic fury of all my favorite elements of music. His skill and passion in every performance is mesmerizing”.

Currently recording and producing his 4 th album, Delphin works energetically around the East Coast circuit, playing up to seven gigs/week. The remainder of his work time is spent in his studio where he experiments with different instruments and works on new compositions to add to his existing body of work, which is not inconsiderable.

2017 has been nothing short of amazing for Delphin with performances at the Forth Valley Blues Festival (Tasmania) and Blues on Broad Beach (Gold Coast) as well as over 400 gigs performed in the last 20 months. Jason will be launching his self- produced 12 track album in mid 2018, and shortly after, will release the single The Only Way. Expect to see Jason Delphin somewhere along the coast as he is already fully booked until July of 2018.
Artists In Focus: Devils Kiosk
 In May 2012 they unveiled their new name and direction at Blues on Broadbeach (an event at which they have appeared since its inception in 2002) adding many faces to their growing following.

In September 2012 Devilʼs Kiosk thrilled the crowd and won the ʻPeoples Choice Awardʼ at the Blues Association of South East Queenslandʼs ʻMemphis Blues Challengeʼ and have since gone on to fulfill a busy playing schedule under their new guise.

With recent appearances at The Sydney Blues and Roots Festival, Brisbaneʼs Grottofest and Anges Blues & Roots, Devilʼs Kiosk has been showcasing all new material as well as featuring some of their award winning songs.

With a heavy blues foundation and featuring songs with a darker edge, their sound encompasses all the drama and energy that is so evident in their live performance.

Their sound derives from elements of the earthy sounds of the ʻ40ʼs and ʻ50ʼs blues masters, the soulful feel of ʻ60ʼs and ʻ70ʼs British blues as well as the virtuosic magic of more contemporary blues artists.

Devils Kiosk have taken it a step up and to the left having wowed fans in recent years at music festivals across Australia including the Woodford Folk Festival and the Gympie Muster.
