WHO IS LUKA LESSON?

Luka Lesson, Australia's stylish and noted hip hop poet, has stirred audiences on five continents. Born to Greek parents and raised in Brisbane, Luka's skilled verse blends rhythmic riffs on love and justice, laughter and family, music and prose. Luka's range and his smoldering performances prompted invitations to many of the world's iconic venues -- the Nuyorican Poets' Cafe in New York City, Trinity College's International Hip-hop Festival, and Melbourne's avant garde Malthouse Theatre. In the last two years Luka's gathered his ideas and his verses in new platforms. ON MAY 1, he releases his second album, EXIT, which constructs a new path for socially conscious hip-hop and poetry, something not yet heard in Australian music. His first book, The Future Ancients -- a collection of rap and spoken word verses -- was self-published in 2013 and is a best seller for poetry in Australia.

WHO IS ROYALTY NOISE?

Intergalactic musical navigators descending from the motherland diaspora (and other lands) to Melbourne town and BOOM! Royalty Noise is born. When the lyrical sweet harmonies of hip-hop lift unforgettable falsettos, ‘fresh’ has a new meaning.

When the band met they instantly found a common ground through the love of poetics with soulful beats and a strong message. Lingering rhythms and rhymes filter the grounded sound of the Royalty Noise band whose musicality has grown out of hip-hop, funk, soul and jazz. Riding under and over the vocals, lacing together bass, drums, keyboard, a new way is recovered! Never underestimate the brass section!
