Produced by the king of Blue Mountains Hip-Hop, JohnStuart (Thundamentals, Hermitude, Urthboy, Jones Jnr.) and mastered by Darren Z (Rufus, Atlas) comes a 5 track EP from three rising artists in their own right who call themselves PEAKS.
Justin Hunter is a musical chameleon, working across ambient music, Hip-Hop and dance. Recently he has been working Kid Kenobi, and rising dance producers Date Night.
Tomaz Charuk, aka TheSilentTitan(Thundamentals, formerly signed to Obese) is the king of downbeat Hip-Hop and has worked with Stones Throw and Phat Beats in NYC.
The newest name to the mix is 20-year-old Kearna, who brings soul and depth to this trio with her golden voice. Kearna has been teaching music in Katoomba since age 16 and spent most of 2015 volunteering in Columbia after spending time working at a music school in Cuba.
After a sold out debut performance to launch their EP at the Clarendon, in their home town of Katoomba, last November, PEAKS performed at OFF THE RAILS festival at Scenic World in Katoomba (with Urthboy, Thundamentals and Jack Ladder).
With all three members of PEAKS meeting during varied stages in their lives, The EP, "Staggered Hearts" was appropriately named and this release reflects their various backgrounds with downbeat hip hop, cruising reggae tinged soul and even old school funk
Since this release they have shared a double single release "I Don't Think So / Holla" which is available now.
