THE ESPY'S GOT TALENT
Australia's Got Talent Season Five finalist Adam Hynes will play an early acoustic set in the Espy's front bar.
The 23 year old singer songwriter was born in Canada in 1989 and moved to Australia in 1996. The first musical instrument he picked up was the trumpet, but it never felt right. It was the guitar that really caught his imagination.
Hynes, who now lives in Melbourne, has been influenced by the great Damien Rice, Ani DiFranco, The Rocket Summer and early Jason Mraz. His biggest influences are Dallas Green and Dashboard Confessional.
