Three of Australia’s most lauded singer/songwriters are coming together for the first time to deliver a tour that harnesses a power greater than the sum of their critically acclaimed parts.

The best collaborations are born out of a fan-like admiration for one another’s songs, a passion that inspired Mia Dyson, Liz Stringer and Jen Cloher to work together for what is sure to be one of the indie roots highlights of 2013.

With eleven albums, ARIA awards, Australian Music Prize shortlistings and countless other accolades among them, Dyson, Stringer and Cloher are three names synonymous with great songs and powerful performances.

Dyson-Stringer-CloherThis year sees Dyson riding high after the international release of her acclaimed 2012 album The Moment; Stringer just back from Europe where she toured her release Warm In the Darkness; and Cloher is fresh from the release of her third album In Blood Memory.

The trio have a vast catalogue of incredible songs as well as brand-new material they will play on tour with their band – Danny McKenna on drums and Tim Keegan on bass.

‘This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me – touring with the finest songwriter/musicians who are also my best mates,’ says Mia. ‘I get to back them up while they sing and play their hearts out and they do the same for me. The road will not be tough and lonely on this tour.’

‘Mia, Jen and I all met because of our songs and, although we’ve become good friends since, it’s great to be able to celebrate that original connection and mutual musical respect by touring the country and playing together,’ say Liz. ‘Apart from the fact that it’s likely to be a lot of fun.’

‘It’s not every day you get to share the stage with two of this country’s finest musicians,’ says Jen. ‘I’ve been dreaming about doing a tour with Liz and Mia – their harmonies alone are superb and then they start playing guitar.’

See this gig tonight at Byron Bay Brewery, 8pm, $30 / $35.
