M. Hofmann ‘Lavender Sleeping’ Album Launch w/ Lady Lyon

7:00pm, Wed 21 April, 2021

Event Details

Tasmanian-born, Sydney-based singer/songwriter M. Hofmann is ready to take 2021 head on. After a fruitful period of writing and releasing three singles in early 2020; Hofmann found himself in an incredibly fortunate position during the global pandemic, and sought to use the down time to record his work. Meeting up with fellow collaborators Tim McArtney and Charlie Finn on production duties, the trio played the majority of songs live, seeking to capture a certain energy, layering extra tracks as necessary. The result of those recordings is his debut full length release, ‘Lavender Sleeping’; an album peppered with nostalgia and self-reflection. Hofmann’s songs focus on themes of relationships, grief, and the rippling effects of mental health, all set to a classic Heartland Rock/Americana soundscape; where 80s guitar tones blend with synthesisers and organs, and a harmonica can be heard echo-ing in the distance.

‘Lavender Sleeping’ releases digitally on April 16.

To celebrate the launch of ‘Lavender Sleeping’, Hofmann and his band are thrilled to announce that they will be launching the album at The Vanguard on April 21st. 

Support by Lady Lyon. 

Lady Lyon is Cowgirl Blues at it’s finest. Her songs are pure sumptuous nostalgia for the heart that will linger in you long after your feet stop the inevitable two step.
