The Rhythm Hut
Mark Wilkinson w/support Lissa @ The Rhythm Hut
Singer-songwriter, Americana, Indie Folk, Acoustic - these are all labels that could aptly apply to Mark Wilkinson, but ultimately he lends his voice to the human condition. Those moments in life that bear memory, those questions that drive us all. So universal they aren't bound by time or place, but so few can ever put into words.
Mark Wilkinson - The Blue Eyed Girls Tour
"He truly has a gift for poetic lyrics...There's a glow of warm around him and richness to his supreme voice, sending shivers down spines as he pulls you into the soul of him."
- Hazel Buckley, TheMusic.com.au
It's this simple but all too rare ability to connect that's brought him acclaim the world over. His music has risen the charts on two continents, his shows have sold out in half a dozen countries more. He's shared arena stages with some of music's most enigmatic names like Brian Wilson and Rodriguez, but he can still be found performing on the street, forging connections through song without barrier or contrivance.
With three full length albums under his belt already, 2019 sees Wilkinson return to the live stage in support of his fourth record, "Blue Eyed Girls". Set for release in March 2019, this new collection of songs comes hot on the tail of "Wasted Hours" which hit #1 on the Australian independent album charts in early 2018.
The 'Blue Eyed Girls' tour will encompass a lengthy 20+ date run across Australia throughout March, April and May before heading to North America and Europe for a slew of shows in the northern hemisphere.
Don't miss the chance to catch one of his powerful and moving live performances as he showcases songs from his new album along with fan favourites from his ever growing catalogue.
Support Act: Lissa
Lissa is a Sydney artist who has graced the scene for a number of years now. She has worked with some of the best Australians in the business. Having been mentored by Darren Percival, supported Diesel and sang alongside Clare Bowditch in her Winter Secrets Tour, workshopped with Katie Noonan and supported and accompanied Mark Wilkinson numerous times, Lissa has quietly achieved. More importantly, she has consistently delivered songs straight from the heart with melodies that are left to float around long after she's delivered them. Lissa has released a three part series of EPs named 'small steps' followed by a record named 'Tahloumbi' in 2016, named after the property she recorded on. "I love busking, I love performing to a lounge room with twenty people or to an audience from the stage. I plan to keep doing all of those things because most music is made to be shared and should be done so generously. When we share, we help to shed some of the isolation."
