Their rendition of 'Love Me Crazy' is absolutely stellar, spotlighting Gia's catchy vocals in a wrap of hulking synths and pounding beats. Expect to see this one hit dance floors The World Over. 'Love Me Crazy' is Sultan + Shepard's latest poppy, reggae-flavored collaboration with singer-songwriter Gia. The single sees its release on Armada Music and is the first of several extraordinary creations, all to be bundled into a full-blown EP. 'Love Me Crazy' rises as Sultan + Shepard's first release on Armada Music after signing exclusively to the Amsterdam-based record company about a month ago.

'Bring Me Back' was recently remixed by fellow Canadian artist Guilty Pleasure, which was also released on Armada Music. Sultan + Shepard formed in 2010, after which their solid in-studio output and vibrant on-stage performances gained them international recognition. In the past five years, Sultan + Shepard worked with and/or remixed tunes from far-famed artists such as Kaskade, Dillon Francis, Tiësto, Lady Gaga, Nelly Furtado, Coldplay, Madonna, and more.

BWW Review: LETTERS TO LINDY Fascinates in Tell-All on Australia at Seymour Centre
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 19, 2016

You could be guaranteed, no matter where you went or who you were with that at the time her disappearance went public, the circumstances around the death of baby Azaria Chamberlain was the topic of every conversation in Australia. Opinions polarised around the involvement of her mother, Lindy Chamberlain whom some believed to be the fame-hungry, cold-hearted murderer, others the victim of a tragic freak accident involving a dingo and the phrase that became famous The World Over. Either way, scrutiny upon Lindy, who was given a life sentence before being released four years later upon the discovery of further evidence. Whilst living between nationwide roles of villain and victim, Lindy received upwards of 20,000 letters. Many years later, with Lindy remarried and living in America, Australian playwright Alana Valentine was granted the ability to write a play based on this mass of correspondence and Lindy's experience. Letters to Lindy is a remarkable, surprising and touching reflection not so much on Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton herself, but on the impassioned public who one way or another found her so easy to relate to.
