Sisters Brooke, Sam and Mollie McClymont love what they do and they are definitely good at it.
Since the release of their debut self-titled EP in 2006, the country trio has racked up four No.1 albums on the ARIA Country Charts, a quarter of a million album sales, 22 chart-topping singles, 13 Golden Guitar Awards, including the 2018 Album of the Year for the best-selling album Endless.
The ladies have also become mothers, with Brooke expecting her second child with husband Adam Eckersley in January.
"I'm kind of book-ending the McClymont children journey," says Brooke. "I was the first to have one and this is probably the last one, although never say never with us girls."
With the release of her new single Outrageous in February, multi-award winning singer songwriter Amber Lawrence has amped up the sizzle.
The accompanying video was shot on a hot January day in a warehouse. "It was hard to make it look like we were so not breaking a sweat," the recently married star says.
Lawrence says outrageous is the way she lives her life. "It's how the songs came together. Rather than over thinking it, they're fun. I wrote one after Ike was born [nine months ago]. Once you have your own child, you know, I get it now. You have to live the life you want to live." Case in point, she met husband Martin on a dating App.
With 30 years of chart-making success, three time ARIA Best Male Talent (alongside a select few including John Farnham, Alex Lloyd and Gotye) Mark Lizotte, better known as Diesel, says he has had a charmed life, making music exclusively for people that are interested. "What more could I ask for, " he says.
In 1987, Johnny Diesel and the Injectors moved from Perth to establish themselves in Sydney. And it didn't take long. Their debut album went plantinum and entered the charts at No. 2
"Sure, I often think of the chain of events coming across from WA. It was a pretty cut and dried situation. We didn't even get the chance to hang around Sydney like a bad smell. We got off the bus with $93 between us and lived on $5 a day each. We did shows for $200, which was not bad if you were solo, but not a whole band, plus one crew."

The stillness of the air was a far cry from the rain at last years commemorations and women, men and children came together to remember the past.
Allan 'Buster' Beatty OAM gave the keynote address and paid tribute to the "forgotten heroine" volunteer nurses of World War I. "They [nurses] worked under the most hazardous of conditions, endured extreme discomfort in the most harrowing of circumstances and lost their lives," Mr Beatty said.
Building a hospital in rural Nepal sounds like a mammoth task and fundraising more than $500,000 to build a Mothers and Babies Hospital in Nepal sounds insane.
However after travelling to and from Nepal for almost ten years, specialist gynaecologist Dr Ray Hodgson or Dr Ray - as he is known by all - and his team wanted to do more than just temporary health camps.
And so the idea of a specialist hospital was born.
"The idea for the hospital first arose four years ago when we were working in the typical dilapidated buildings in the district of Dholakha," Dr Ray said.
"We were aware of the appalling state of women's health in Nepal, and over the previous four or five years we'd been patching up these problems with surgical camps in various parts of the country.
