“I’m in control of my life, not anyone in Hollywood.” – Heath Ledger
Instinct has Australia’s top selling artists available to hire for corporate events, public events or festivals. Australian Recording artists include “Heritage Acts” or performers who had charting success 10 or 20 years ago, who are still performing the corporate circuit. These recording artists are names everyone knows (unless you are under 25). They bring history into the room and will generally get a good response from a corporate crowd aged 28-55.
As this group of “Heritage” recording artists have aged, they have begun to leverage each others brand to attract an audience. They do this by performing together in groups. This phenomena is known as the “Super band”.
This allows any combination of varying recording artists to come together, allowing for an ever shifting “band” to be presented to the corporate market. Often there is a backing band that then allows each “front person to do a small set, and hand over to the next. They usually come together at the end for 3-4 iconic Australian songs (often one of their own!)
“Hollywood has always been a cage….. a cage to catch our dreams.” – John Huston
With the global phenomena of talent shows such as Idol, X factor, Your Country’s Got Talent and The Voice, TV is churning out over night celebrity recording artists by the dozen. This creates new talent available for hire for events. The most well known (Guy Sebastian, Jess Mauboy) have stood the test of time.
Those succeeding generally have a grasp of “celebrity” as well as music. Some of the new TV recording artists carry clout in a corporate environment, as they bring “relevance & currency” to the entertainment selection.
“It’s never too late – never too late to start over, never too late to be happy. ” – Jane Fonda
Other recording artists include Headline Djs, who are the rock Stars of the 21st century. These are particularly appealing to the youth market, or brand events that target the younger demographics. They can charge and earn huge money, with the demand for dance parties and festivals often turning these electric “Rock Stars” into globe trotters on regular basis.
“I don’t know what my path is yet. I’m just walking on it. ” – Olivia Newton John
Getting the right recording artist for your corporate event is critical. They generally come with a heavy price tag, so you need to get it right. It is important to ensure your source all production, audio visual equipment and travel. Often it is best to let a professional team do the negotiating for you, to save you time, money and stress.
Instinct specialise in sourcing and booking Headline Recording Acts for corporate events Australia Wide.

One of the most famous Australian singers Johnny O’Keefe kick started our nation’s Rock n Roll scene back in the 50’s. His nephew Andrew now hosts game shows and weekend television, seemingly somewhat subdued by comparison! Regardless, the rebellious energetic O’Keefe family nature shines through. It’s innovative Australian male singers and Australian female singers like this that have put our country on the musical map.
Our reputation as a harsh, isolated sun scorched country has long been the backdrop for our famous Australian singers’ images.

“Normal is nothing more than a cycle on a washing machine .” – Whoopi Goldburg
Australian singers and bands have been shaping the world’s music scene (sometimes unknowingly) for decades. Our own citizens are sometimes unaware of the impact that our nation’s creative types are having in the musical world!
Did you know: Brisbane band The Saints invented Punk Rock.
You probably thought it was the Ramones or the Sex Pistols (many do)! As far as Australian male singers go, not many know their names. However, they (perhaps unwittingly) gave life to a global movement that became a clear statement. The message was similar in rebellion but more aggressive than the hippie revolution of the 60’s. Famous Australian singers and bands like Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs, The Masters Apprentices and later Russell Morris were prominent in that particular era.
Punk rock (and psychedelic rock) have spawned many sub-genres and people don’t always recognise those Australian Singers as easily as many other famous Australian bands. The ever evolving Australian music scene is forged by it’s underdogs and many times they will go unrecognised. Like the butterfly effect suggests, small changes upstream will have large effects elsewhere. This leads to more and more people catching on like a snowball rolling downhill. Decades later, in the 90’s famous Australian bands like Bodyjar, The Living End and Frenzal Rhomb, and more recently groups like the Smith Street Band are still flying the punk flag for Australia.
These famous Australian bands are highly energetic, aggressive and emotive in nature so will only be suited to certain environments like festivals or pub shows. What’s stopping your next event from being rocker themed? We’ve seen the 80’s thing done to death, let’s go back to CBGB in it’s heyday (or maybe the Tote in our fair land) and get rowdy! If you’re looking for ideas on how to make your event rock, drop us a line right now!
“Apologies are pointless, regrets come too late. What matters is that you can move on, and you can grow.” – Kelsey Grammer
Our music scene would be nothing were it not for our Australian female singers! Back in the 60’s Australian female singer Little Pattie climbed to success with her hit “He’s my blonde headed, stompie wompie, real gone surfer boy,”. Thankfully, since then some kind of embargo has been placed on track names that long. Also of the same era were lesser known Australian Female singers like Marcie Jones and the Cookies, Noeleen Batle, Betty McQuade and Lynne Randell.
Who could forget popular Australian band of the folk-pop variety the Seekers? Lead singer Judith Durham was their greatest asset! They’ve since been inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame and more recently had a successful musical created around their true story (see Georgie Girl).
Another one of our awesome Australian female singers, the late Chrissy Amphlett from the Divinyls has carved up the radio airwaves since the 80’s with her vocal stylings. The 90’s saw famous Austrlaian bands like Spiderbait with lead singer Janet English. Now we have international stars flying in all directions spreading the word about our amazing talent. Local independent recording artists such as Sarah Blasko, Missy Higgins, and Clare Bowditch have made waves overseas as well.
How can you make these Australian singers work for you? Who is the right choice for your event? These are questions best asked of us here all the time at Instinct, where we can help with any entertainment needs. We’re experts when it comes to bands and Australian female singers especially. Don’t hesitate or talk yourself out of that show-stopping experience, see what we can do for you today!
“You don’t need to look like everybody else. Love who you are. ” – Lea Michelle
So you’ve decided to book one of our nations many famous Australian bands. Your budget is in check and you’re excited! You should be! But what happens next? In the event that you’ve never booked any number of big name Australian singers before, that’s where we come in and save the day. There are a number of things you’ll come to expect of booking any band, especially famous Australian singers.
The most important is the rider. This thing can make or break your day/week/month/year/life. Let’s start at the beginning, what is a rider? Well, basically riders can be broken down into two sections; the tech rider and the hospitality rider. Tech riders are essential for popular Australian bands, famous or not. There will be a specific list of requirements for them to be able to play. For famous Australian bands this includes stage sizes, in-house equipment requirements, lighting or visual technology, sound technician etc. Many times bands bring their own technicians and backline (amps etc) but may need front-of-house gear. They’re almost always different, and without them the band can’t play.
Hospitality riders are the kind of lists you’ll find backstage/dressing room requirements. Also included are nutritional requirements and food and beverage requests, as well as peripherals like warm towels or a Unicorn. This is the part where you might find things like “bowl of M&M’s with the brown ones removed”. This was originally written by Van Halen as a means to check whether anyone was reading the whole rider anyway. These are more likely to be tricky, with the more diva-esque types potentially requesting 12 bespoke scented candles at $200 a piece. Without getting this right, the band won’t play.
Australian male singers will have different requirements than Australian female singers, and vice versa. It’s not likely you’re going to see the exact same rider twice, even if you book the same famous Australian singer. Everyone is different and people do change, given enough time so do Australian singers!
Once you’ve nailed all of that down, the rest is relatively straight-forward (flights, transfers, accommodation, run sheet, bump in/out etc) as it is with regular event management. If you’re stuck on how to get around any of those obstacles let us know! We’re experts, we live and breathe all things events.
“I think if you live in a black-and-white world, you’re gonna suffer a lot. ” – Bradley Cooper
Your favourite famous Australian band will be a matter of personal taste. The question should be, what do you want your guests to remember? What is the vibe you want to create? What will everyone feel? This is how you go about choosing the right Australian singers for your event.
Australian pop artists will be different from Australian rock bands, and Australian female singers will have a different feel to Australian male singers. Female Australian singers these days vary from the breathy indie-pop sounds of Sarah Blasko through commercial pop artists to rockier sounds of groups like Stonefield or the Preatures. Australian male singers range from the smooth emotive timbres of Chet Faker and Jarryd James, to the tough roaring tones of Dan Sultan.
For a comprehensive Australian bands list visit the recording artists section on our website now and browse through the enormous list of possibilities. Remember, it doesn’t end there! We can source practically any band for your event, no matter how big or small (provided they’re able to make the date).
Popular Australian artists cover many genres and styles, the important question is which one will be perfect for your event and budget? If you need help finding famous Australian bands and famous Australian singers, we’re the experts. We’ll take the heartache and headache out of all the nitty gritty details. We live and breathe this, call us for a chat now!
“Make the right decision even when nobody’s looking, and you will always turn out okay. ” – Oprah
Our website houses thousands of Australian singers, quite literally! It can be daunting to find the right group, and as you can imagine the more famous they are, the trickier the game gets for the uninitiated. The demand for recording artists is many times much higher than it will be for others due to their profile and demand. Famous Australian singers will often tour as headline acts, or be recording either their own material, or with other famous Australian bands in the studio.
Going about the process once you’ve contacted us is straightforward. Let’s say you’re looking for a few female Australian singers to choose from. Firstly you call us here at Instinct, and we’ll talk about your function. Is it a end of year party or a gala dinner? How many people are you expecting? Budget comes in to play here too, but we can work within any budget big or small. Once we have an idea of what you envisage for your event and your preferences for artist, we will present you with options to choose from. It’s the same for Australian male singers, or any popular Australian band!
It does help to plan ahead, especially when booking famous Australian singers. The reason is pretty clear cut; they’re in high demand. This can also be fraught with last minute changes to their schedule, and often times famous Australian bands will have contracts that preclude them from doing particular gigs during a certain time. It can be like navigating a minefield when you’re on the hunt for famous Australian singers!
Searching high and low for the perfect Australian pop artists and bands can be exhausting. There are so many management companies and promotion agencies out there, it’s easy to lose track of what’s going on. Booking Australian singers doesn’t need to be so hard! The difference between promotion agencies, management companies and us is that we will look after you. We simplify the process and are your sole point of contact for everything that you need. We’ll give you lists of available Australian singers and their format/requirements, and speak in a language that you understand.
There is no question too basic or complicated for us! We have over 20 years experience in the entertainment industry and eat this kind of thing for breakfast. We have booked many famous Australian singers over the years and have the best contacts to get the greatest Australian pop artists for your event. You have the edge when you’re dealing with us!
“Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want and to do what makes you happy.” – Demi Lovato
What kind of Australian singer are you looking for? You have a lot of questions to ask yourself before embarking on this mission, or you can just ask us! The differences between an Australian female singer and an Australian male singer don’t extend to their availability or ease to get a hold of. This comes down to your own preference at the end of the day. We know that your preference comes from personal taste, but you aren’t booking only for you if you are organising an event with hundreds of guests! Our experience helps you get your event right every time.
Australian male singers have been making waves in the global popular music scene since early last century. As diverse as music itself we are seeing more and more innovative recording artists enjoying success in popular Australian bands and as solo artists. As time moves on music evolves (as does everything), and our famous Australian singers follow suit. Successful Australian singers move and flow with the times while still retaining their fans. This is a skill that requires a lot of in-depth knowledge of many aspects of the world! Audience taste, global influence, trends and fashions are really important for famous Australian singers to understand.
