“To spread the leaves of a burning bush”

Meticulously constructing lush arrangements, blending digital beats and soothing ambience, this startist has released 5 studio  albums and a children's songbook. Vita Nuova is currently producing his first major film score for an upcoming documentary. 



At the age of 15, Grace was the Judge's Choice Grand Finalist on Australia's Got Talent 2008. Described as "Australia's Greatest Operatic Discovery", classical-crossover Soprano, Grace Bawden'sunique vocal talents are unearthly, powerful, and moving. With a resonance that will send shivers down your back, her vocal ability spans across four octaves, and all genres of music, from high opera, sacred arias, traditional and musical theatre to contemporary & R&B. 



Contemporary father-daughter songwriting team ©hipster is a promising musical collaboration between Vita Nuova’s John Chiplin and 25-year-old daughter, Amy. Currently working on finishing their debut EP, ©hipster’s first release will feature music that values independent thinking, creativity, intelligence, and an appreciation of arts and poetry. The world can expect much to come from this talented family. New music... coming soon!



Fresh, raw guitar ballads create the sound of a purist, performed in the spirit of songwriting greats such as Neil Young and Randy Newman.

 Playing exquisitely in the service of the songs they're writing, CM-vibe features guitar that is never showy but has an innate, eloquent melodic sense. Unique, intelligent, CM-vibe music... coming soon! 


With a sound as catchy as the name, Le Rime is one of the least predictable and most experimental dance music producers of the early 90’s and 2000’s. Getting his start as a gifted child pianist, the self-taught multi-instrumentalist started playing 70’s underground rock, and is now a San Diego based classical-crossover composer and prolific songwriter.  Le Rime’s unique, hypnotic style earned him credits on opening music for #1 London nightclub, Boujis.
