Angus and Julia Stone

On Application
NSW, Australia

Angus & Julia Stone are a brother-sister duo from Newport on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. The music style is folk, acoustic and alternate. Their mother and father were both musical - they learned a lot of songs from their Dad's cover band. At very young ages, they were introduced to music by their father who made them join his school band. Julia played the trumpet, Angus the trombone and their older sister, Catherine, the saxophone.

Their debut EP was Chocolates and Cigarettes and their second EP was Heart Full of Wine. Both EP's were released through EMI Music in Australia and independent label, Independiente Records in the UK.

Their debut album A Book Like This was released in September 2007 through EMI Music Australia and sold platinum (70,000) and March 2008 in UK/Europe through Flock Music. It was later released in the USA through Nettwerk on the 3rd March 2009 with an alternative track listing. The album has also been released in Japan (Village Again) and Korea (Leaplay Music).

The sophomore self produced album "Down the Way" saw a simultaneous worldwide release in March 2010. As travelling has been an integral part of the Stone?s musical story, they opted to record in a number of diverse locations around the globe - an old sawmill on the river banks of Fowey, Cornwall, a studio in Brooklyn, a water tank in Coolangatta, their second home - London - and Queens in New York.

The album debuted at number 1 in Australia, reaching Platinum status and becoming the highest-selling album by an Australian artist in 2010 in just 2 months. The album also hit number 4 on iTunes France after performing on TV show Taratata. They have completed their first worldwide tour with all dates selling out and for the remainder of 2010, the siblings will be travelling around the world for festivals and their second worldwide tour.

Ben Pettingill

Imagine waking up blind. One moment you can see, and in the next moment, your vision is made up only of childhood memories. At the tender age of 16, this became a reality for Ben Pettingill when overnight he lost 98% of his eyesight to a rare genetic syndrome, Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. While the shock, then grief of losing one's eyesight cannot be discounted, once Ben processed his new reality he realised that he had to make a choice that would define the rest of his life. Ben believed that a blind man could see, and his miracle was the activation of ‘True Vision' and 'Limitless Vision'. Vision enabled through purpose, perception and empowered decision making.
