Shae Bird Trio + Julz Evans (trio) + Marcus Matthews (solo)
October 24 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
In June, Open Studio hosted Shae Bird’s EP launch with talented supports Julz Evans and Marcus Matthews. The whole lineup of enchanting songwriters is returning in the spring, with new colours.
Shae Bird and collaborates have been brewing up a band. Both the drummer Derwent and Shae are Perth migrants- Shae used to play violin in Moana (mythic rock) and Acushla (instrumental- their mum’s band) before leaving. Panfred Reed plays accordion in moonspice and piano in improvised musicals with Impro Melbourne. Pan and Derwent keenly dissect and build on Shae’s intuitive song-writing. The result is a dynamic sound drawing on folk, pop and even dubstep. This will be their debut full band gig.
