Earlier this year, T.J.Quinton and Ahliya Kite collaborated on a 15 date East Coast tour promoting T.J.Quinton’s concept album Sorry Business.

Following enthusiastic audience response they are returning featuring a host of exciting new elements as the duo interweave song and story amongst a mesmerising backdrop of electronic sampling, guitars and rhythm.

Featuring the work of both artists, this unique run of gigs is timed to support a video release from T.J.Quinton and Ahliya Kite’s long awaited debut EP.

TjAhliyaStrange to Care is the second video release from T.J.Quinton’s album Sorry Business and features the work of award winning Byron Bay animator, Shanti Des Fours.

Des Four’s signature stop motion video style is a perfect match for the heavily themed concept style of Quinton’s work and the result is a breathtaking journey in sound and imagery.

Ahliya Kite’s debut EP ‘Olivia’ is a representation of her years spent performing live and working alongside some of Brisbane’s finest musicians.

Featuring Danni Ogilvie (Emma Louise) and Shannon Green (Kingfisha), ‘Olivia’ is defined by Ahliya Kite’s powerful vocal and delicate songwriting that has captured the hearts of all her fans.

See more of both of these artists: www.ahliyakite.bandcamp.com and www.tjquinton.com.au

See them live tonight  at Kulchajam, Byron Bay  with Peter Hunt and Thomas Keeley

See them live tomorrow at Mandala Arts on the Gold Coast
