Using her unique and smooth as silk vocals, she writes and sings in the same vein as the classics that she grew up listening to. She has always loved music, and from a young age has idolised top-tier singer-songwriters like Selena Quintanilla, Christina Aguilera, rappers Kurtis Blow & Eminem, and other rap, pop, and R&B superstars. She has created a lot of songs over the years, and works with Heaps Decent producers to take her tunes to the next level, with her latest song receiving rotation on Triple J.

Jake’s message is focused on growing from the past – and he’s just getting started. Keep an ear out for KING J!


A prodigy possessing talent and wisdom well beyond his years, Ravin has been a bright spark for Heaps Decent. Australian born with Samoan heritage, he has lived most of his life in South-West Sydney and offers a refreshing spin on these experiences from the perspective of his many years of rapping. We first met Ravin at our Home Base workshop, where he showed promise from the get go. In a short time we turned around an incredible EP, singles from which gained praise with rotation on Sydney’s FBi Radio and triple j Unearthed.


Former Heaps Decent regular Tasha Lee Marshall is a Sydney-based singer, songwriter and guitarist who has been writing songs since the age of 7. Since working with Heaps Decent she has performed on FBi Radio, Channel V and was the support act for Canadian experimental/electronic artist Grimes at both of her sold-out shows at Oxford Art Factory in 2012!


RA’$$EL started off making his own beats, writing and recording his own raps at the age of 15. After moving back and forth between Auckland and Sydney, RA’$$EL decided to settle here and began working with us. With the assistance of our facilitators he really started to take his sound to the next level, both as a solo artist and as one half of Terrible Twins with fellow Heaps Decent artist Medz the Misfit.


Back in the start up of Heaps Decent, Icey was a stand out talent and contributor to the vision of the organisation. His incredible flow and unique vocal sound turned heads with each new rhyme. Coming from a musical family with a guitarist father and singing sister, it’s no surprise Icey is a natural performer. Icey’s repertoire draws from his love of hip hop and his upbringing as an Islander growing up in Australia, combining catchy hooks and infectious phrases to captivate his audience.
