Songs and Sounds to make you feel good on a Tuesday night in Melbourne!
Skinny Silver & The Shark (SYD)
AKA Nick Henderson (Arcing Wires) & Emily-Rose Sarkova (Chaika) are going to sing you songs of personally epic proportions. What’s real and what’s not is as clear as a clog in a sunstorm. They will be impressively yet unassumingly moving between their multi-instrumentalist personalities (guitar, bass, piano, keys, synths, accordion and vocals). It will be intimate. It will be real. Journeys will be had. There will be rubix cube inspired hits, introspective bangers, clever lyrics and sweet chords that make you feel real good. And let’s be honest – we are all in it for the feelings. There will be very special guests also announced in inventive ways on the facebook event. Check out musicbyemilyrose.com.au for some vibes. Then to experience all the great live music feels, buy yourself a ticket and bring some friends.
This evening will also feature…
Monique Clare (BRIS) & Joe D’Esposito (USA)
Monique Clare (The Maes) is joined by American fiddler Joe D’Esposito (The Railsplitters) in a mesmerising collaboration that draws on their diverse influences. Dancing between rhythmic cello lines, powerfully vulnerable vocals and heart-tugging harmonies, Monique Clare is an award-winning cellist and singer-songwriter. Since breaking out as a solo artist in 2017, her songwriting has become increasingly daring and potent, with hard-hitting lyrics and an unconventional brand of classical-folk-pop cello. Joe D’Esposito is a multi-genre fiddle player and improviser with infectious charisma. His work with The Railsplitters has seen him play Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and Celtic Connections. This duo brings together a shared classical training, obsession with fiddling traditions and a mutual love of Björk to deliver intricate arrangements of original songs and tunes.
