Imogen Clark is more road-hardened and wise than most performers twice her age, and with her new six track EP ‘The Making Of Me’, the 25 year old has translated the whole of who she is on record for the first time.

The songs span the arena-ready opening rocker ‘My Own Worst Enemy’, a co-write with Alex Lahey, to defiant ‘Inside Out’, which showcases Imogen’s soaring vocal, and ‘Push Me Down’, a volley at misogynist musicians. Together with the sultry and atmospheric ‘Paper Boat’ and heartrending piano ballad title track, the EP is a departure from everything Imogen has created before. Lead single ‘Found Me’ was written with Clare Bowen and her husband Brandon Robert Young, at the end of a US tour together last July.

Recording in LA meant access to musical legends Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions), who infused the songs with their musicianship and set a tone early on in the sessions.

It’s a far cry from playing pubs in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, where Imogen cut her teeth as a young performer, after picking up her father’s guitar at age eight. A relentless work ethic saw her build up a strong live following in rural Australia, gaining her touring slots with artists like Shania Twain, Ian Moss and Willie Watson, who recognised an artist with grit and maturity well beyond her years – an old soul learning to embrace being a young woman.

PRAISE FOR ‘THE MAKING OF ME’ EP:

“4.5/5 stars. This EP will become a landmark.” – Poppy Reid, Rolling Stone

“Imogen Clark may not have tailored her record to this era but her vibrant, bracing songs – kind of like a dip in a cold September sea – might just be one of the things to carry us through it.” – Divya Venkataraman, Sydney Morning Herald

“Every once in an audiophile while, like a bolt out of the blue, we’re gifted with a pop song so sunny, so chiming, so pure and perfectly crafted, that it might have been sculpted by the angels. No melodic faults, no clunky chords, no errant turns of phrase, just ebullient euphonic verse-chorus-bridge constructs that only strengthen with each successive listen.” – Tom Lanham

Maizy

Blue Mountain’s based Maizy Coombes, is an endearing Violinist/Songwriter with a contemporary folk sound beneath wholesome lyricism.  Her approach to life is equal parts adorable, resourceful and sneaky, all of which is reflected brightly in her music. Using a loop pedal to support herself, this unique sound scape has the ability to bring out tears as you apply make-up or brush your teeth, yet still leave you feeling contemplative and joyous.
We first encountered Maizy’s gorgeous fiddle playing in “Lime and Steel”. Don’t miss this opportunity to see her subtle and solo.

If you merged John Butler Trio, Florence + The Machine, and Matt Corby, you’d get newly formed 3-piece TYDE. Brandishing a rich soundscape that ebbs and flows between folk, funk and alternative rock, TYDE is a force to be reckoned with.
The trio is made up of Cole Clark Guitars-endorsed percussive finger-style guitarist Ella Belfanti, her 15-year-old sister and bass prodigy Zoe Belfanti, and West End drummer Josh Garnett.
Flavoured by each of the trio’s unique musical tastes and backgrounds, TYDE will have you both grooving to infectious hooks and reflecting on your life choices with their introspective lyricism. TYDE’s songs have been written and developed across the snowy mountains of Australia and Japan, the sunburnt Aussie East Coast.

“…all the polish of a well established band, yet all the emotion of someone sitting in their bedroom with a pen and paper, searching for catharsis.” – Livewire Music Australia
“The influence of Florence + the Machine and Matt Corby shines through as well as that of London Grammar and the more sentimental side of Lorde’s catalogue.” – Beat Magazine
“Bursting with narrative and soul… TYDE is a trio ready to shake up the industry and re-write music as we know it.” – Happy Mag
“The degree of songcraft and musical maturity on display… …is even more interesting when held up against the band members’ ages: Ella at 21, drummer Josh Garnett 22, and bass play Zoe Belfanti the youngest at just 15 years old.” – Blank GC
“TYDE seemingly has all the ingredients to be a name in everyone’s mouth for years to come…” – Livewire Music Australia
“…ability to create beautiful harmonies on the fly with her loop pedal, while delivering a quality brand of songwriting is impressive. … just formed a new band named TYDE, so check them out.” – Australian Musician

MARK WILKINSON ‘Hand Picked, Vol. 3’ Album Tour
Live in Concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

Saturday 6th March 2021
Doors Open 5:00pm | Performance 6:00-7:15pm

Mark Wilkinson announces, ‘Hand Picked, Vol. 3’, the newest instalment in his much-loved acoustic series. Available worldwide from Friday February 12th, it continues the tradition of showcasing his songs laid bare, in their most raw and honest form.

It’s a sentiment fans around the world know well, whether they’ve seen Mark on stage, just a man and his guitar, or if they’ve come to discover him through his first two volumes. The original Hand Picked endeared him to tens of thousands with ‘Middle Ground’ broadcast on television throughout Australia and New Zealand. Volume two’s ‘Everything to Me’ found millions more with regular radio rotation across the US and Canada.

Now ‘Hand Picked, Vol. 3’ brings that same intimacy. Recorded on a farm in the NSW Southern Highlands, each song captured as a live take with one microphone, the natural setting of the surrounds adds a beautifully unique sonic texture.

To celebrate the release Mark will be returning to the road, crossing open borders after a long absence, sharing songs from the new album along with many other favourites. Restrictions may mean numbers will be limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
