SAT 11TH AUGUST  – Bright Sparks Support MARC RIBOT

HOLY MOLY – Is this TRUE!! ?? I am so excited to play support (along with the awesome Danaides) for USA guitar legend Marc Ribot. I remember the exact moment I clocked this players awesomeness – on Tom Waits’s “Real Gone” I then promptly bought a LOT of Tom Waits and Marc Ribot… he is a truly unique voice and I urge you to see him play if you enjoy creative guitar playing and where Blues, Jazz, Americana, Avant Garde, and Rascal can all go!!






SO excited to play with Deborah, Clare, Hannah, Myka & Helen again. Last year’s tour was such a blast and I was so loved up while mega pregnant with Arky. Can’t wait to take him back up North to meet the band. This concert also features very special first nation guests from around the commonwealth.

Staged for Queensland Music Festival 2017, Songs That Made Me will once again bring together Australian powerhouses Deborah ConwayClare Bowditch and Hannah Macklin for the closing night of WOW Festival 2018.

Featuring voices from across our diverse Commonwealth, they will be joined by Fiji’s “Queen of Pop” Laisa Lualala VulakoroShoShona Kish from Juno Award winning Canadian duo Digging Roots, proud Wannidilyakwa songstress Emily Wurramara, and vocal ensemble The Verandah ChiX alongside a stellar all-women band: Jess Green (guitar), Helen Svoboda (bass guitar) and Myka Wallace (drums). In celebration of women in music, they will share stories of their influences, artistic journeys and the landmark songs that have sound-tracked their lives.


“Making attractive, bold pop, out of left-field, peculiar sounds is not something that seems easy but Green has clearly created a body of work that makes it look like a piece of cake.’  – Isabella Moore, Happy Mag May 2017

We’re fresh from an east coast tour, including a show at the Brisbane Powerhouse (pictured above), and for the last show of the year and my home town, I have curated a very special evening. Before the show and during interval, you can experience sound designer Annie Mckinnon’s ‘Habitatual’, an interactive sound piece. The first set of music features Annie performing songs as well as Jess’ band mates Alyx and Bonnie, all of whom are wonderful songwriters in their own right. After Interval Pheno Band takes the stage to perform the EP.


BOYS WILL BE BOYS 27 Oct – 11th Nov

Boys Will Be Boys info

Thrilled to be collaborating with the Street Theatre on their production of ‘Boys Will Be Boys’

opeing October 27th in Canberra. Playwright Melissa Bubic won the STC’s Patrick White Award in 2010, and the music incorporates re-working of cabaret and jazz standards, as well as original score – won’t give too much away but I’ve allowed my love of 80’s hits to sneak in, as well as my first crack at writing electronic music! Directed by Caroline Stacey, stars Pippa Grandison (Muriel’s Wedding / Wicked) and features a stellar cast… I heartily recommend!

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

Gary Daly’s Sanctuary! at SIMA

A very rare chance to see this beautiful project

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

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

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
