THURSDAY 25th JANUARY
Susie’s unique, soulful voice and emotive, angular songs have touched hundreds of people across the country. The 2012 debut EP from Susie Hurley and the Hurricanes was critically acclaimed and received airplay on Triple J. As with much of Hurley’s music, the EP reveals a diverse mix of influences from Joni Mitchell to The Doors, flowing from the folk rock tradition but journeying into darker, more angular, syncopated places.
In the past 12 months Susie’s musical romance has evolved further with the birth of Night Kite – a new soul, gospel, folk group with a focus on intricate vocal harmonies, body and vocal percussion, and simple instrumentation. This new collaboration has been buttressed by Hurley’s studies at the Australian Institute of Music where she is currently completing a Bachelor of Music and plans to go on to a Masters in Performance.
Dawn is a singer/songwriter based in Denmark, Western Australia. She is a traditional storyteller at heart and her catchy choruses and rich lyrical content make for an engaging performance. Her distinctive sound and the spirit in which she sings her songs has likened her to artists such as Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, however, her driving rhythm lends towards a more Contemporary Folk Rock sound. Her passion to communicate through words and music and her warm stage presence is very evident and an inspiration to all those present.
Dawn’s recent release “When did it Change? – has been reviewed as “a modern interpretation of a bygone era” (3NRG 99.3 fm), and is receiving regular national airplay.
