A great Australian Adventure,
Coming to a porch near you.
10 Porches, between Byron Bay and Adelaide,
Merpire, Hannah Blackburn & Forever Son
Award winning and nationally acclaimed Adelaide-based series, The Porch Sessions, are heading on tour this Summer. The team are packing up a convoy of vans and hitting the road and visiting 10 Porches between Byron Bay and Adelaide. Travelling with three incredible acts, a full event crew, media team, porch friends, and our little porch dog named Craig, as well a trailer filled to the brim with production, persian rugs and everything in between, set to transform spaces across the country.
The venues are shaping up to be a stunning collection of backyards, farms and creative spaces, all owned and operated by beautiful people, offering up their spaces for nice music and nicer times. Our incredible hosts of this series are the absolute lifeblood of this tour, welcoming us into their spaces with open hearts and open gates.
The Porch Sessions are now entering its seventh year, and the fourth year in a row of touring the country, having supported over 350 artists within its lifespan. Porch Sessions now has an increasingly incredible national following, with notoriously sold out shows, and incredible reach through online mediums. Outside of this, The Porch Sessions are just beautiful, accessible, family friendly events, attracting delightful crowds, continuing to build an incredibly sustainable platform for touring musicians and audience experience across the country.
**This event is a little BYO show.
Pack a picnic basket with cheese and wine and tim tams,
and save one for us x
A little about our musicians:
The incredibly captivation project of Rhiannon Atkinson-Howatt, The striking young artist conjures magical moments of danceable introspection both in the studio and on stage. Such a powerful and versatile live presence has already seen Merpire perform standout sets at Bigsound, By The Meadow, A Festival Called PANAMA, Brunswick Music Festival and more.
Following from the incremental success of recent single ‘Lately’, with rotation on triple j unearthed, and double j, Merpire’s exciting upward trajectory continues to prove why she’s topped many a one-to-watch list of 2019. Stay tuned.
Hannah Blackburn (VIC)
Hannah Blackburn an incredible singer, songwriter, storyteller and human being is on track for some pretty incredible things.
Recent music achievements consist of solo supports for, Angie McMahon and Leif Vollebekk’s co-headline show at the Metro in Sydney, Mick Flannery’s Australian tour (Melbourne show), and offered support for Justin Townes Earle’s Melbourne show. Hannah has shared the stage with other local Melbourne bands such as Quivers, Rat!hammock, Ryan Downey, Emerson Snowe, Carla Geneve, Obscura Hail.
Forever Son (VIC)
Forever Son is the project of Melbourne based singer-songwriter and guitarist Jack Robbins. Drawing inspiration from Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Daniel Rossen and Fleet Foxes, Forever Son’s sound is raw and free flowing with a splash of reverb. Tracks imbue dreamy, coffee-fuelled mornings without the restraint of calculated thought. As for Forever Son’s rich, honey-soaked voice, The Band Review describes it as, “somewhere on a spectrum consisting of Jeff Buckley, Donovan and Devendra Banhart”.
