Meet songstress and visual artist Missy Gilbert from Ginger and the Ghost: "The secrets lie in my Pinterest boards!"

There is a growing appetite for mixing original music with impacting imagery on stages and screens among an increasing number of artists in Australia. Music Love will strive to feature more visual artist/songstress hybrids (hit us up, people, also a playlist is coming!), and it is with this sentiment in mind that it is only right to highlight the works conceived by Missy Gilbert and Daniel Bourne from avant garde duo Ginger and the Ghost. When it comes to costumes and stage shows, make-up and storytelling, Ginger and the Ghost have got it down pat. "Transforming imagination into song" is the catch cry of the pair who have used body percussion and bicycle wheels in order to achieve a rich soundscape subservient to the tales they wish to tell since their formation in 2012. With popular songs like Where Wolf and One Type of Dark featuring the vibrating feminine and emotive tones of Missy's voice, Ginger and the Ghost have a brand new song out this week, the powerful anthem Glow. Missy chatted with Music Love about her art, her inspiration, her work as a costume designer and installation artist, and the last thing she saw that blew her imagination away.

Wilsn is one of the finest soul artists and best vocalists in Australia.

In the very early days of the conception of Music Love, Shannon Busch AKA Wilsn was top of mind. She is one of Australia's best vocalists and soul artists and is to be celebrated. Wilsn is about to head to SXSW to showcase her soul to the world. Her songs and her voice are breathtakingly fine, and her commitment and dedication to mastering her craft are inspirational. Her EP is called Don't Give It Up. One listen and it quickly becomes apparent that Shannon was born to sing and write soul. Growing up in a musical family, listening to the greats, singing in the church choir, and then going on to study jazz after school have all been steps along Shannon's musical pathway and a great foundation for the music she is making today. Shannon will stay in the States, in Nashville and LA after her SXSW showss - she's just signed a management deal with Seth Friedman (Natasha Bedingfield, Will.I.Am, The Black Eyed Peas, John Legend), a co-publishing deal with labels in Australia and the US and is killing it. Before Shannon leaves, she took some time to chat with Music Love about soul music in Australia and her long list of favourite Australian women in music.
