Pheno debut single launch!

After a lot of sweat, some tears and many trips up and down the federal highway I am finally launching the first single from the forthcoming Pheno EP.

with Alyx Dennison & Bonnie Stewart Pheno brings you ‘Dragon Year’

special guest for the evening is another Canberra local, Luciana Harrison (Pocket Fox / Oranges)

Luciana Harrison is a broad-ranging and versatile singer-songwriter, who creates intricate songs and arrangements in a variety of styles. Her lyrics are rich in imagery and often explore binaries such as light and dark, the head and the heart, the self and the other and the space in between. She performs locally as a singer-songwriter with Pocket Fox, Oranges and solo. BMA Magazine named Oranges as a band to watch in 2017. In January, City News described Luciana as “one of Canberra’s leading singer songwriters”. The Brag described the 2016 Pocket Fox album as: “Pulsating with the influence of Sufjan Stevens, Fleet Foxes and Tune-Yards, the album abounds with intelligent lyrics, undulating harmonies and urbane polyrhythms.”  

Sat 22nd April Pheno plays Candelo Festival, Candelo NSW

As part of the mini tour celebrating the Dragon Year Single Launch, Pheno will play the Saturday night concert as a double bill with Vince Jones.

This is a very special festival in a very special town, a breathtaking setting and wonderful music and other events

Pheno will also present ‘Pheno Kids Orchestra’ , a special 90min workshop for kids 8-12years old.

Gary Daly’s Sanctuary! at SIMA

A very rare chance to see this beautiful project

https://www.facebook.com/events/599720710184134/

“Sanctuary is big, very big in every way: the themes, the emotion, the ensemble writing, the very breadth of its conception…” AustralianJazz.net

Sanctuary is a genre-hopping exploration of musical traditions, from Appalachian folk through classical and jazz, and infused with Indian and African percussion.The work conveys a story of family, kinship, and the lifecycle viewed through the prism of two profound life events: a mother’s journey through Alzheimer’s disease and the birth of a grandchild. It explores themes of acceptance in the face of terminal illness, regeneration and rebirth. The Sanctuary ensemble’s unusual combination of instruments and stellar cast each contribute their own distinctive personal style into this moving project. We are delighted to bring you this very personal and life-affirming work.

Gary Daley (piano, accordion and electronics), Paul Cutlan (reeds), Vanessa Tammetta (violin), Ollie Miller (cello), James Daley (mandolin), Jess Green (guitar), Bruce Reid (pedal steel guitar), Brett Hirst (bass), Tunji Beier (percussion).

8pm – Support Act: Gary & James Daley

Opening is duo Gary & James Daley: Genre-bending music that spans Beethoven to Bartok, jazz, folk and improvisation

Gary Daley (accordion) James Daley (mandolin)

Thursday 5th October:

With Greogory Page (US)

crooner extraordinaire!

Gregory Page (USA) weaves a magical dream-world with his extraordinary tales of love and optimistic melancholy : teetering between tradition and progress, history and fantasy. His mother was a swingin’ jazz singer in 1960s London, and Gregory spent his youth listening to 78s, dreaming of becoming a black American blues singer like his hero Billie Holiday.
Hailing from San Diego, Gregory has shared stages with Bob Dylan, Jason Mraz, Leon Russell and many of the greats, filled 1,000 seat venues in The Netherlands and charmed audiences across Australia. He returns to these shores to launch his new album  “Shine, Shine, Shine”. Gregory Page’s vintage vocals and shameless love of nostalgia will bring back memories you are yet to have.

Intimate, bluesy, vintage, mesmerising, unmissable.
 
at: CAMELOT | NSW | 7:30pm | $25 / $20. 
with Liz Frencham 
VENUE ADDRESS : 19 Marrickville Rd, Marrickville. NSW
