 Ian Cooper

Jazz Violinist Ian Cooper and his bands are regular attractions at many Jazz festivals and concert venues throughout Australia, Europe, Japan and New Zealand.

Ian's humorous show draws on many musical styles from jazz, Latin American, gypsy and country. He creates an exciting, new and original blend which never fails to impress any audience.

Ian was honoured in the inaugural Golden Fiddle Awards in Tamworth in January 2005, by winning the category, Best CD by a Fiddler Soloist. The following year, he won the top award of best fiddler soloist in Australasia.

"Acoustic violins with inbuilt pickups all too often sound tinny or boxy. Not so with my Epoch. Sensible design and an ingenious pickup make this the most authentic sounding electric violin I've ever played! I want a second one!"
Ian Cooper – Virtuoso Violinist – James Morrison Band

"Congratulations on this fantastic violin of Ian Cooper's. It has the right groove and jive I need in this band!"
James Morrison

Andrew Clermont

Andrew Clermont is an international multi-instrumentalist and bluegrass champion.

A signature acoustic Epoch and an Australian sunset acoustic/electric take pride of place in most of Andrew's stage work around the world.

"It really does shine in a group, with its clear and bold sound. An Epoch taken straight off the rack can be used immediately and stand out in the best possible way. The Epoch’s electric sound turns heads and I love the raw unadorned timber sound."
Andrew Clermont multi instrumentalist and teacher

Music has been a way of life for singer/songwriter/musician Ashleigh Dallas. Hailing from Tamworth NSW, she grew up in a musical family, becoming the third generation of The Dallas Family.

Playing regular gigs with her Family Band, Ash scored her first big break at age 17, when Kasey Chambers saw her perform and asked her to join her band, touring Australia and America.
Ashleigh is in midst of recording her Debut album as an artist in her own right. She also won Best Youth Achievement at the 2011 Golden Fiddle Awards.


Ashleigh plays two Epochs – Pearl White VP4 and Metallic Black VP4.
