The Northern Rivers Conservatorium is pleased to present Lior and Domini in concert. They are also pleased to be able to continue to offer free tickets to flood-affected members of our community.
Animal in Hiding is the first release from a collaboration between one of Australia’s most established and critically acclaimed singer/songwriters, Lior, together with exciting emerging artist, Domini Forster.
Lior is one of Australia’s most treasured singer-songwriters, renowned for his beautiful voice and songs that radiate truth and sincerity. He burst onto the Australian music scene in 2005 with his debut album Autumn Flow which has become one of the most successful independent debut releases in Australian music history.
Initially Domini toured as Lior’s support act, then as a guest vocalist and now as co-writer on their debut EP Animal in Hiding.
A recipient of the Darebin Songwriter’s Award and a former Triple J Unearthed High finalist, Domini Forster is one of Melbourne’s brightest emerging songwriters. With a distinctive voice that shifts from commanding call to lilting, whisper-close falsetto, Domini weaves songs that capture universal human experiences through intimate personal storytelling.
The pair have a creative partnership developed over six years’ touring together. While Lior and Domini began writing Animal in Hiding together in late 2019, much of the material was developed during Melbourne’s long lockdown, over Zoom from their respective homes.
The title track, originally written about the isolation of winter, became the prophetic seed of the project. Animal in Hiding features songs that are rooted in intimate storytelling. Underpinned by intricate guitar, Lior and Domini’s close vocal harmonies are the focal point of the songs, harking back to the iconic folk duos of the ’60s.
See this great duo on Saturday 26 March at 4pm in the Whitebrook Theatre, Southern Cross University.
