In-Store Performances

LIAM GERNER – Friday 24th March @ 12.45pm

“Liam is an extraordinary musician.  Both as a songwriter and performer Liam is a force to be reckoned with.” Ryan Bingham

Steeped in blues and country music, Liam Gerner left the Adelaide hills to try his luck in London. The young guitar slinger quickly made a strong impression and earned a crust opening for Paul Weller, Jason Isbell, Drive by Truckers, Paolo Nutini and many more. Liam then headed to the US, joined Texan country rocker Ryan Bingham’s band and experienced frontline American roots music. Returning to Australia in 2014, Liam released his debut album ‘Land Of No Roads’, a startling collection of original songs he composed while touring with Bingham and cut with some of LA’s finest players.

Since then Liam has been touring relentlessly throughout Australia, New Zealand and the USA.  Now based in Melbourne, Liam has developed his songwriting, collaborated with local musicians and formed The Sunset Pushers, a band as fluid and soulful as his songs.

 

 

ADI SAPPIR – Friday 31st March @12.45pm

Instead of a love poem

This 6 track EP is the offspring of a poetry reading and music show that was dedicated to the renowned poet, Yehuda Amichai whose work has been translated into 33 languages. Each one of the songs has a story behind them.

“…It is a moving celebration of his work, masterfully expressed in music, Adi’s affecting voice blending with the rich tones of her cello to create a soundscape of mournful beauty.”

The added accompaniment of piano, organ and vocals enrich the listening experience, interacting perfectly with the dark sad sound of the cello and Adi’s voice.” Cat Politics. Instead of a love poem was recorded by Neil Kelly at Run Stop Sound who also played bass guitar, keyboard and guitar on a couple of the songs.

“ Wonderful music” Tim Thorpe, 3RRR

“ Deeply beautiful” Michael Mackenzie ABC RN
