Lucy Mason, the Australian ex-pat living in London, is kicking so many musical goals, including a very recent performance for the Queen

Lucy Mason made the brave move a few years ago to make her musical mark in London. While there have been dark and dreamy days (check out the piece she wrote for Music Love here), Lucy is continually kicking goals. Just last week, the singer/songwriter from Sydney's Northern Beaches was asked to perform at the Queen's Baton Relay which is the official launch of the Commonwealth Games held at Buckingham Palace. She performed her new single Hunger before fellow Australian Cody Simpson took the stage to sing I Still Call Australia Home, and then took the Commonwealth Games baton into a Kombi, apparently all the way to the Gold Coast. It was all very Australian with legends like Anna Meares in attendance, and what an honour it was for Lucy Mason to perform for such a crowd. She looked gorgeous shrouded in Chanel, and her winning smile. Lucy has been on a big musical journey the past few years with some ups and downs, but keeps managing to land these great opportunities, her talent for songwriting and her effortless, powerful voice clearly paving the way. Lucy is about to release her second EP called Going Home Broke and spent some time chatting with Music Love about Buckingham Palace, her new music, and how she dreams about her two favourite Northern Beaches cafes.

Amy Shark: "The best thing I ever did was not care about the game."

Amy Shark has tapped into something. Her songs are extremely emotive, and her lyrics unpack dark and heavy themes, yet when it lands, they weigh no more than a dandelion. This is her appeal. Light, shade, heart-warming, super cool.

Abbe May says we should listen to Hayley Couper. Abbe May is right! Meet the dreamy pop rocker from Tasmania

Go digging for music by Hayley Couper and you will come up with just two songs. The guitars, the drum mix, the voice, the soul and the pure gritty grain is reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac, PJ Harvey and Florence Welch. Heartbeats was released in 2012 on triple j's Unearthed and received rave reviews. It's been a long time between drinks and her latest release Caught Up came out in December last year. And it is a truly great track. More music is coming soon, thankfully, and the pop-rocker has just released a music video for Caught Up. Hayley has been around for a while, winning a spot on the Falls Festival bill thanks to triple j Unearthed, and playing more festivals and gigs and featuring here and there. Abbe May loves her. Hayley took some time to chat to Music Love about her plans for 2017, life in Tasmania and how Fleetwood Mac is her religion.
