With Special Guests JORDIE LANE & BEN JANSZ plus Late Night Dj's

Urban Spread heads into 2016 continuing its mission to bring quality music alternatives to the suburbs with the announcement that troubadour Kim Churchill and special guests Jordie Lane and Ben Jansz will be bringing some rootsy splendour to the Pelly Bar in Frankston in February, 2016.

Kim Churchill has already accomplished some amazing feats in his short time as a professional musician, matching his lyrical artistry with fierce vocals; he is a sonic architect, using his instruments to create landscapes to animate his lyrics. Live, he is a true virtuoso. Recognised as much internationally as he is in his homeland, having performed headline shows, festivals and supports alike all over the planet. In recent years he has opened for Billy Bragg and Michael Franti, and performed at many notable festivals such as Montreal Jazz, Glastonbury, Cornwall Boardmasters, Victorious, Womad, Beautiful Days, Telluride Blues, SXSW, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Byron Bay Blues Festival and many more.

Born to a comedian and a clown, Jordie Lane spent his early years in his parents travelling circus. Many years later, not much has changed, with Lane renowned for both his relentless international touring schedule, and his witty, comedic storytelling. Lane's music, seems like it comes from another place and time. The songs are nostalgic and immediately affecting, his rhythmic guitar playing is authentic and raw, and the rich resonance of his voice is simply otherworldly. Australia's Storytelling Troubadour Jordie Lane has just come off the back of an epic 2 year world tour of his critically acclaimed Nashville recorded EP, 'Not Built To Last'.

Ben Jansz started playing music at 10 years old and began singing at age 15. When he was 13 he had his first paid Wedding gig and has been gigging ever since. Only since 2012 has his reputation been spread and opportunities had been given to him throughout the music scene as a solo artist. Ben is now becoming known on Peninsula and is beginning to grow as more and more venues are hit with this young talent. Ben plays a mix of rock, pop, and R'n'B and as a soloist the sky is the limit.

Teaming up with TAC, Urban Spread is looking introduce a safer alternative for a new generation of music lovers in the suburbs. By creating quality events closer to home, Urban Spread is ensuring that the joy of experiencing great Australian music doesn't need to cost young lives on the road. Australian music is alive in the suburbs and with the help of TAC, Urban Spread is making sure that Australian music lovers stay alive in the suburbs!
