Kaiit & Adrian Eagle
Papua New Guinea born, now Naarm/Melbourne based, Kaiit (pronounced Ky-yeet) burst onto the scene in 2017 with her debut single "Natural Woman". Creating waves online and commanding the attention of soul and hip hop tastemakers, the subsequent release of her debut EP Live From Her Room fuelled her first sold out national tour and established her as a must-see act. Since then, Kaiit has gone on to win an ARIA award for Best Soul/R&B Release for her 2019 hit ‘Miss Shiney’, perform at festivals including Splendour in the Grass and Laneway and support international heavyweights on tour including The Internet & SZA.
In just a few short years Adrian Eagle has gone from writing music at home in Adelaide to playing festival main stages and arenas worldwide. After garnering widespread acclaim for his breakout singles 17 Again and ARIA nominated A.O.K, the Adelaide-bred singer-songwriter went on to feature on Hilltop Hoods’ ARIA Award winning single Clark Griswold, perform a sincere rendition of Ocean Alley’s ‘Confidence' for triple j’s Like A Version, and release his debut EP ‘MAMA’.
Sarah Carrol with Fenn and George Wilson
Sarah, Fenn and George are a mother and her two sons, joining forces to create a special musical performance for this year’s online event, Sleep At The 'G.
The three spent winter 2020 locked down at the family home in Clifton Springs, and took the opportunity to play music together, posting videos online regularly which showed a different side to each performer, and delighted thousands of viewers, leading to live shows and invitations to take part in various online concerts.
This will be the first time Sarah, Fenn and George have performed together in some time, and they are thrilled to take part in this fundraising event for Melbourne City Mission, as they all feel so strongly that young people experiencing homelessness need and deserve support.

Andrea & Valanga Khoza
Valanga Khoza left South Africa in 1976, exiled along with many other young people because of their struggle against apartheid or racism. The music and stories he has since created, reflect the places he has been and the people he has touched throughout his journey across the world as a refugee, finally settling in Australia.
In 1996, Valanga began singing with singer songwriter, Andrea Khoza. Their musical partnership has treated audiences across Australia and the South Pacific to rich vocal harmonies, lilting tones of kalimba, rhythmic guitar and irresistible dance grooves. Performing repertoire that ranges from township jive to original, traditionally inspired melodies, all songs tell stories of the past and present, a journey reminding us of our shared humanity.
