List of musical acts from Western Australia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Western Australian musicians (music artists and bands) from all genres.

Because of the relative isolation of the State and the capital city of Perth from the rest of Australia, band membership has often been characterised by associations with other bands in the region.
