Dean Greer

Hi, my name’s Dean Greer and I am a filmmaker with Greer Macjames Productions  (www.greer-macjames.com). It is very full on so in my spare time, and to relax, I write and perform stand-up comedy.
As part of my stand up routine I used to perform comedy songs on a keyboard but travelling around with a keyboard was very impractical so I decided to learn the Ukulele, a much smaller and more fun instrument to play. Being a man of large build and playing such a tiny instrument also added to the comedy so with that I fell in love.
I have been playing the Uke since December 2017 now so I still have a lot to learn but I make it work for me.
I love seeing people enjoying the songs I write and I hope you enjoy them too, thank you

Girl Friday

Hobart-born and Melbourne-based award winning* singer/songwriter Girl Friday (Tracey Hogue) will transport you to a different era. Her folk, jazz and blues sensibility evokes a sense of nostalgia, innocence and melancholy. Girl Friday’s rich, soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics remind us that people have felt and sung about the same things forever and a day. This calibre of songwriting never goes out of style.
*Winner of Roddy Read Songwriting Award, Maldon Folk Festival, 2016

Anna van Riel

Following the success of her 2014 Tui Nominated album “Whistle and Hum”, Award-winning Lake Hawea singer/songwriter Anna van Riel changed tack with a fun and interactive, toe tapping album, with a focus on supporting child development and interaction.
Having successfully toured her way across North America, with family in tow, Anna resourcefully engineered her own self-managed house concert circuit through sustainable and earth homes. Her passion for community and connecting with her audiences, has lead her on a musical journey that has been meaningful and unique.

When performing for her younger audiences, mother of two, Anna brings a wholesome, loving and encouraging air to her shows. She is also enthusiastic about sharing her sustainable approach to motherhood and music through song and dance.

Nominated Best Children’s Album and Best Children’s Song at the NZ Music Awards, the title track to Anna’s children’s album, “Cooking up a song”, also took out Best Song for Children at the Australian Songwriters Association awards in Sydney last year.

The album has recently taken her on an Off The Beaten Track tour in the Deep South where she visited children in remote areas.

Southland born, Anna is based in Lake Hawea with her husband and two children Matilda and Oscar.

Song and Supper Rooms

“Rewind a bit there and you’ll notice we said ‘singer and ukulele player’. Yes, Song and Supper Rooms are the spiritual heirs to George Formby, but George Formby if he wrote self-consciously wry ditties about Emperor Claudius’ wayward wife, WWII planes crashing into mountainsides or prostitutes in 19th Century cinemas…” Nightshift Jan 2017. Catchy melodies, eclectic subject matter and a nod to old-fashioned music hall from a ukulele-driven three-piece.

Oxford-based band performing original songs with ukulele/vocals, bass and cajon.
