For Anthea White and Mark Palmer, the founders of The Hipstones, New York City is a type of potent spiritual home. Their move from Sydney to New York in 2010 was a natural progression from their local success, designed to bring the duo closer to their musical roots. In New York City the pair have pushed their talents hard and galvanised their passion for American soul, funk and jazz.

They worked their way into the underground jazz scene by playing a series of showcase club gigs. Their album, mixed by Helik Hadar, has provided a solid backbone for their on-stage repertoire.

The Hipstones were formed in 2006 when the group’s founding members Mark Palmer (keys/lead vocals) and Anthea White (lead vocals) began songwriting amid a six-month stint performing in Tokyo. Returning to Australia, the pair played in clubs and music festivals before releasing their acclaimed debut album Something’s Gonna Start. Making a strong impression on the local Australian music scene, The Hipstones performed twice at The Sydney Opera House, as well as having played numerous festivals and receiving solid Australian and US radio rotation, album of the month/week and Top 30 CMJ (US) charting. The group also performed at the ‘After Tour Party’ of multi-platinum and internationally acclaimed group Human Nature and had everyone dancing their feet off.

Things are sure to go off this Saturday when they play the Star Court Theatre in Lismore.
