Merryn Jeann to support Liz in Mullum
Sometimes the show just can’t go on and Red Square Music regrets to announce that the wonderful Claire Anne Taylor, who was set to support the upcoming album launch of Liz Stringer, will not make the show owing to illness. We wish her all the very best recovery and we really look forward to seeing her at Mullum Music Festival.
Liz will now be supported by Byron’s very own Merryn Jeann, whose sultry, thought-provoking vocals and songwriting have rocketed into the millions of YouTube views and audio streams. Her live performance can be spine-tingling and she holds a growing list of fans, admirers and collaborators across the globe.
Come on in to the Mullum Ex-Services from 8pm for Liz Stringer’s All The Bridges album launch tonight Wednesday 31 August. Tix and info: www.redsquaremusic.com.au.
Teacher and student create heaven
Simone and Jarrad, a duo who, once were teacher and student, have united to produce a collection of acoustic covers of quality performance engaging in popular music and top-40 hits.
Simone brings you angelic vocals and a deep-end stompbox timbre, woven in with acoustic guitar and ukulele tone colours while Jarrad introduces you the many sounds and techniques that guitars can produce and complements his warm harmonic vocals to Simone’s.
See this duo at Club Lennox on Fathers Day 4 September.
Taxiride and The Badloves Twins show
Two awesome Aus rock bands are coming to Twin Towns this weekend. Taxiride, who cut their teeth on the streets of Melbourne’s eclectic music scene in the late 90, and The Badloves, whose multi-platinum debut album Get On Board spent a massive 69 weeks in the charts, will play a huge show on Saturday night.
Taxiride was the best apprenticeship for four local musicians: Dan Hall, Tim Watson, Tim Wild and Jason Singh. In 2016 the original lineup is back together.
The liner notes of The Badloves’ multi-platinum debut album Get On Board started: ‘Some years are like that: too busy, too distracted, too fuzzed out. You miss things. Great music passes you by. Then, years later, you find it.’ The Badloves released their second album Holy Roadside in 1995, to critical acclaim.
These two bands will deliver one hectic show and, if you love Australian rock, this is where you need to be.
Saturday 3 September at Twin Towns.
They are King
King of the North are a hard-rock duo. They are Andrew Higgs on guitar and vox and Steve Tyssen on drums and backing vocals. Their intense live shows and powerful brand of modern rock have blazed a new trail in the two-piece band format. The uniqueness of KOTN is created by Andrew’s pioneering of the three-from-one guitar pedal, which creates the sound of two guitars plus a bass from just one guitar. First-timers are often left looking for the extra guitarists amid the wall of sound. Look behind the wall of sound at the Hotel Great Northern on Saturday 3 September.
