Pulling Strings

One of Australia’s unique musical talents, Miriam Lieberman, presents her new album Full Circle complete with fused lilting harmonies of the 21-stringed West African harp, the kora. It’s classical strings and a western folk/pop sensibility. The result is a beautiful exotic musical journey from Sydney’s seascapes to the bustling streets of Mali and beyond. Lieberman’s rich soulful voice takes listeners through an exploration of love, feminism and the different shades of the human experience.

Full Circle sees Lieberman reunite with violinist Lara Goodridge from Four Plan and Baby et Lulu, and cellist Kate Adams, who add sublime string arrangements and lush harmonies.

Mullumbimby Civic Hall on Friday.

Carriage weaves her magic

Following up on her highly acclaimed Mandarin Skyline, which drew a nomination for the 2014 Australian Bell Awards, Weave sees Carriage digging deeper into her past and drawing upon her vast knowledge of genres.

Blessed with stunning crystal-clear tone and pitch, her nuanced delivery, masterful storytelling and compositions mesh divinely, weaving stories ancient and new.

There’s a timeless quality to her singing, likened to water flowing over river stones.

Leah Carriage presents Weave at the Byron Theatre at the Community Centre on Thursday 8 December at 7pm. Tix at the Centre.

Trio of Tim

Well-loved local singer/songwriter Tim Stokes has a smooth vocal tone that delivers heartfelt stories in the folk and blues traditions.

His natural ability to connect people to love, spirit and country through vivid storytelling and lyrical imagery is a true gift.

His most recent release In Life Thou Art is a great example of catchy melody, heart-warming stories and beautiful arrangements. Club Lennox on Sunday from 4pm.

Angel at City Hall

Angel Olsen’s only show outside capital cities on her upcoming national tour will be at Lismore City Hall on 1 December. Her performances at the Sydney Opera House, Melbourne, and Perth have sold out but, lucky for us in the northern rivers, there are still tickets left for her performance in Lismore.

Angel’s national tour follows the release of her third album My Woman, which has been met with unanimous acclaim. Given its title, and track names such as Sister and Woman, it would be easy to read a gender-specific message into My Woman, but Olsen has never played her lyrical content straight.

She explains: ‘I’m definitely using scenes that I’ve replayed in my head, in the same way that I might write a script and manipulate a memory to get it to fit. But I think it’s important that people can interpret things the way that they want to.’

Joining Angel on the road will be Sydney’s own baritone balladeer Jack Ladder. A run of four sold-out shows on the Sydney Opera House forecourt last year in support of Florence & The Machine was followed by Ladder’s sold-out performance at the Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent – an acclaimed highlight of the 2016 Sydney Festival.

With four albums to his name – two of which have been shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize – it will be a special moment witnessing Jack’s crooning narratives open the stage for Angel. 

Thursday 1 December at 7.30pm, Lismore City Hall.

$35. Bookings: lismorecityhall.com.au or 1300 066 772

Hell is Light Rails

Andy Jans Brown launches his latest film project Hell is Light (currently a feature script) at The Rails this Sunday with music he has composed for the soundtrack. Hell is Light is a coming-of-age black comedy dealing with love and loss, addiction and compulsion, choices and consequences, risk taking and heroic failure. Think Richard Linklater meets Guy Ritchie.

The crazy banter and the dry Australian vernacular and wit keep things buoyant as the weight of the story bears heavily down.

It is based on a true story of two brothers growing up and growing apart as their family life and the Australian dream disintegrates around them.

One likes the rush of the surf and falling in love, the other the rush of ice and fast cars. Throw in a gorgeous German backpacker, a single mum armed with Rescue Remedy, a hard-nut bikie philosopher, a corrupt cop and a picturesque beach town and you have Hell is Light.

Think Romeo and Juliet meets Breaking Bad set in Byron Bay to an original rock’n’roll soundtrack.

The project has a dedicated team in place working toward its fruition, with social media pages growing in numbers every day including two crowdfunding campaigns active online: one at www.indiegogo.com/projects/hell-is-light-movie/x/9712555# and one at www.australianculturalfund.org.au/projects/hell-is-light-a-tale-of-love-and-ice.

At The Rails on Sunday
