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.
