Forum to address housing emergency, March 8

A grassroots movement is bringing women, community and art together on International Women’s Day (March 8) in an urgent push to solve the local housing emergency. 


South Australia’s beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula hatched a charming songbird, Laura Hill.

With a natural beauty as divine as the coast she calls home, music lovers from around the globe have awoken to this Australian songbird’s undeniable talent as a melodic songwriter and performer.

A refreshing and engaging performer, Laura Hill is known for her beautiful crooning vocals, and tasteful, colorful guitar playing. Showcasing a rich tapestry of songs and moods she has the ability to engage and connect with her audience making her an authentic and endearing Australian performer.

Laura-Hill-In September 2013 Laura launched herself straight into the hearts and ears of Australia, announcing a 12-month tour named Blue Skies 365.

For 12 months she continues to travel around Australia with one simple purpose: to connect with and capture Australia and its people with the power of music.

Travelling full time by her side is landscape and surf photographer Darren Longbottom from Sustain-a-Frames. This committed and visually stunning platform led to the EP Powdered Sunshine, a recording designed to capture the intimate side of Laura’s live sound on the road.

Powdered Sunshine will be released this Friday January 17 and Laura will play the Treehouse on Belongil, Byron Bay. Laura is also playing the Sphinx Rock Cafe, Mt Burrell on Sunday January 19.
