The Original Seeds Showcase is a night to feature some of the best emerging, original artists in our region. Each artist has been hand picked for their talent, originality and potential to become national or international artists of note. Catch them at Currumbin Soundlounge, tonight.

Bernie Carson

Described as a prolific songwriter and an extraordinary performer Bernie bursts onto the stage with her own brand of music, with lyrics that are honest and from the heart, her music is known to surprise, mesmerise and totally amaze you with her soaring vocals. Bernie delivers a splashing of folk, amidst a whole lot of pop, a sprinkle of country, and some hidden reggae. You will find yourself totally delighted with this fabulous quirky young lady.

Pat Tierney

His smooth voice and skillful slide guitar playing has seen him perform well over 50 shows in the past twelve months and his short career has already seen him pick up a Highly Commended in the 2010 Q Song Awards ‘Blues & Roots’ category for his track Come Inside as well as two top ten tracks in the roots charts of Triple J Unearthed.

Marc Bicher – The Gentleman Rambling

The Gentleman Rambling, Marc Bicher is a Queensland singer-songwriter who is has quite an unusual style some dub as Progressive Gothic Folk. Not being able to put your finger on exactly what The Gentleman Rambling sounds like is more often than not heavily in Marc’s favour. Many years have been spent developing his own playing style and many shows played have developed a swagger and stage presence that allow him to put out mesmerising performances. Inspired heavily by the likes of early Bob Dylan, Nick Cave, Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, The Gentleman Rambling is no stranger to the art of songwriting.

Tully Davidson – Sunbear

Tully Davidson (Sunbear) is a young singer songwriter from the Gold Coast hinterland. With a strong belief that every song should tell a story, Tully writes of individual experiences, thoughts and memories woven seamlessly into themes of the environment and wider global issues. His songs are emotive, displaying maturity well beyond his years, yet also imaginative, showing he’s still a boy at heart.

Inspired by the heartfelt sounds of artists of such as Damien Rice, Xavier Rudd and The Dave Matthews Band, Tully spent the majority of his teenage years locked away in his bedroom slowly developing his own style and sound.

It’s this devotion to his craft that would see him successfully graduate from the Griffith University’s BPM Program in 2010. Writing personal songs for the masses, Tully hopes the audience will find a part of themselves in each verse and come to realise the similarities that we as humans possess. With the echoes of steel strings over hollow wood and a voice raised in the woods comes the sound of Tully Davidson.
