6pm Lucy Sugerman

With a knack for confessional storytelling tied with assured pop hooks, Sugerman’s addictive and youthful energy perpetuates her music, even in her most vulnerable moments.  

In 2020, Lucy was the recipient of one of APRA AMCOS’ Women in Music Mentorships as well as a part of their first ever Song Generations writing camp at ANU School of Music. Sugerman released I'd Do It All Again with LANKS as a part of his hotly anticipated double album Spirits. She then released her debut single 'i wanna kiss boys cos i'm bored' (co-written and produced with Hauskey and MUKI), premiered and spotlighted on triple J Unearthed and added to Spotify's New Music Friday AU & NZ and Indie Pop playlists. 

This was followed by 'colour blind', co-written and produced with Dylan Nash (Dean Lewis, Eluera, Shannen James, The Million), with a sold-out single launch at the Lord Gladstone in Sydney. Lucy was also selected to be a part of APRA AMCOS' SongHubs Melbourne 2021, the first ever all women and non-binary identifying songwriting sessions of its kind, alongside the likes of Alex Lahey, Eilish Gilligan, Ninajirachi, Odette, Tulliah, Woodes, and guest writers Montaigne, G Flip, KLP, Lisa Mitchell and Anna Laverty curated by Gretta Ray. She also opened SummerSalt Festival in Canberra, joining a lineup alongside Montaigne, Boy & Bear, John Butler, the Teskey Brothers and the Cat Empire. Lucy released singles, the cheeky and triumphant ‘golden boy’ and the captivating ‘trust nobody’ ahead of her upcoming debut EP ‘hurt that’s man made’ out November 18th. 

Sugerman lets people into her world through relatable tales of her struggles and triumphs in romance and growing up, showing that they are not alone and cathartically capturing the spirit in learning from your own experiences. 

8pm Flower Boy

At the heart of her hazy songwriting is a duality of melancholic love songs and odes to identity and heritage. Born in Sydney to Chinese and Lebanese parents, flower boy 卓颖贤 paints emotional images with her classically-trained background combined with forward-thinking production.

Unafraid to play with textures, her soundscapes are anxious, ambient, and affecting in the extreme. Atmospheric beats and experimental percussion are pieced together to form visceral and unrelenting electronica, overlaid with emotive and expressive melodies. The vulnerability, intimacy, and rawness of flower boy 卓颖贤's art is clear from the start. Refusing to cater to trends or adhere to particular genre 'rules', there is a certain power she brings to her music by knowing who she is and what she's about. flower boy 卓颖贤 treats her life like a movie; she's simply soundtracking it.

As a DJ and live act she has performed in clubs, festivals, and art galleries across Australia as well as in Beijing and Shanghai, scored multiple short films, and facilitated workshops in music production. Since being named FBi Radio's Independent Artist of the Week in 2018 following the release of her debut EP 'FASCI(N)ATION', she has been working on a follow up EP to be released in 2022.
