Suburban storyteller, Folk raconteur, Jordie Lane is as much celebrated amongst his musical peers and industry, as with fans of the great art of storytelling through song.
With a body of work now spanning 8 releases, and much of his time spent touring North America, this show will be a chance to see Jordie & his all-star band, The Sleepers, play their blistering set of Folk to Psychedelic rock songs from Lane's latest, GLASSELLLAND way back to his debut 'Sleeping Patterns'.
Recently described as 'the Australian version of Tina Turner' after her performances supporting Leon Bridges (US) on his Australian tour, melodic architect and soulful crooner Ainslie Wills, known for her genre bending progressive pop tunes is dynamic performer embodying both strength and vulnerability.
Wild, unconventional and ruthlessly blunt, Hollie Joyce is a songwriter completely in control of her craft. Combining fervent lyrics with distorted and at times eerie tones, Joyce has established a compelling sound that doesn't hold back.
Her influences span wide, drawing as much from the works of Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Holly, Patti Smith, Nirvana and Bob Dylan as she does from 70’s horror flicks and spaghetti westerns.
Across five albums, including recordings with outfits Downhills Home, Western Union and The Moonmen, he has traversed a musical highway from densely textured alt-country through to an eclectic blend of folk, blues, country and rock and roll.
His melodic and poetic style of song writing is loaded with confessional narratives and vivid storytelling that explore and exploit familiar themes, however it's his ability to craft a song and his warm, rich and honest vocals that set him apart.
