Now then, before you all get over excited yes, we know not all these incredible names were born and bred here in our glorious state. Many were born elsewhere and grew up here, or were born here and took their natural born South Australian talent to other greener (only slightly) pastures. But, regardless of the nitty gritty these are some talented folks that are making (or have made) waves on a global scale and we're claiming them as our own!
The SAM Awards entries are open! And we are excited to celebrate Adelaide’s incredible music scene.
When the Adelaide Festival booked Lior to perform the newly commissioned Chamber version of Compassion, he found that he was on stage with that show for two performances with a two-day gap in between. So what better idea than to do a one man gig on the Saturday night?

If Big Day Out wasn't trying to reinvent itself after last years less-than-successful venture, it sure felt like it. Here’s my pick of 2013’s most noteworthy Big Day Out moments:
The beats are harder but never brash, and Suffa and Pressure's rhymes are smooth yet spitfire. Fun yet pensive is not an easy line to toe, but the Hilltop Hoods do it with ease. Drinking from the Sun is proof enough our local lads can most definitely still hold their own.
The Hilltop Hoods have been busy - very busy. For the release of their new single ‘I Love It’ featuring Adelaide-born singer Sia, the local rap group worked with three directors to deliver three different visual interpretations of the song. Animal Logic, Blue Tongue Films and Melbourne duo Carl Allison and Nick Kozakis have each unleashed their own unique renditions of ‘I Love It’.
Two of Adelaide’s most well-known and prolific names have come together to no doubt conquer the charts (and local airwaves). Hip-hop group the Hilltop Hoods and quirky songstress Sia have joined forces on I Love It, the Hilltop Hoods’ first single from their upcoming album Drinking From the Sun.
