Short video of the images I captured of Angus and Julia Stone. Enjoy!
Images below captured during their performance at the Lost Paradise Festival 2015.
Angus & Julia Stone are a brother-sister folk-blues duo who formed in Sydney in early 2006. Their parents, Kim Stone (marine biologist, singer and high school teacher who then spent 20 years in institutional funds management, now Kim Jones - a Non Executive Board Director) and John Stone (rock band, builder and high school teacher), were a folk duo before Angus and Julia's older sister, Catherine, was born (October 1982). Catherine, Julia (born 13 April 1984) and Angus (born 27 April 1986) grew up in the suburb of Newport on Sydney's Northern Beaches. They attended Newport Primary School and then Barrenjoey High School – they were all taught by their father with their mother singing to them and helping them to develop their musicality. At family gatherings, when the children performed, Catherine was on saxophone, Julia on trumpet and Angus on trombone, Kim singing and John on keyboards or guitar.
During their teen years, their parents separated amicably. The children spent equal time with their mother and father, as both parents lived in the same suburb. During this time, Angus started writing pop songs. After finishing school, Angus worked as a labourer while Julia taught trumpet. Angus learned guitar and while recuperating from a snowboarding accident, Kim and Angus travelled to South America to join Julia and then go on to meet Catherine who was travelling in Italy.
