    Hosted by Johnny Young – Starring Narelle Belle & The Carpenter Band “The world of showbusiness is full of wonder and surprises and I have had the thrill of introducing undiscovered and talented performers such as Tina Arena and Dannii Minogue and so many others throughout my career.  Then I heard Australia’s singing sensation Narelle Belle singing a Karen Carpenter song as it was sung by Karen originally and I was filled with a similar thrill, prompting me to showcase her extraordinary talents.

After speaking with Matt Allen (founder of the WAAPA Gospel Choir) it was clear, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin were next in line to get the PSO treatment.  Stevie Wonder: singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist.

    Ian Moss – National Theatre Tour

    Respected as one of Australia’s iconic musicians, Ian Moss delivers an unforgettable sound – not only as a telling soloist on guitar but especially with his silken voice, ringing with clarity and resonating with pure soul. While primarily recognised as an axeman of tenacity and sweet melodic sensibility, Ian’s distinctive vocal is the essential signature of his soulful, bluesy muse – as it has been since his first tentative foray into music during the early 1970s. Born and raised in Alice Springs, Ian started playing guitar in local teenage bands but moved to Adelaide after failing one of his high school years, planning to repeat in the big city. Fate intervened when he answered an a  More info...
