Spend an evening in the company of local band Wally Howlett and international folk-pop sensations, The Belle Miners (presented by themusic.com.au).
Folk/pop band Belle Miners are touring their debut album Powerful Owl, which was released in November and it has been described as having "a living, breathing quality to it like the best of Missy Higgins' work" - Jubilant (LA). The Music writes "Belle Miners trade in effortlessly euphonious soundscapes, drawing in their listeners with lush, soaring harmonies, strong, powerful melodies and personable lyrics set against deftly executed, acoustic-driven instrumentation."
The trio, Canadian-based Felicia Harding and Marina Avros and Australian-based Jaime Jackett (Broome) combine exquisite harmonies and relatable stories into a 10-track upbeat sonic journey covering themes from love and loss to overcoming life-threatening illness. 'Strange World' and 'Night Flight' are inspired by Jaime's 11-year's spent living with brain cancer. Lead single 'Fall In Love With Me' is dedicated to same-sex marriage, and '25 Years' is an ode to enduring relationships.
Wally Howlett & The Chest Hairs will be launching their new single 'Casey' from The Chest Hairs' self- titled EP. Casey was originally written on Wally's grandma's piano, with a boppy, 'Belle & Sebastian in the 90s' sound. The epic music video be released on the Monday before the launch, and the audio will be released afterwards on Spotify and through Triple J Unearthed.
The evening will feature the brand new released songs and albums, as well as a guest appearance by Villah.
