‘Gigs on Govetts’ w/ McDERMOTT & NORTH (Melbourne) Live at the Zoe’s, Blackheath, Blue Mountains

Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Gigs on Govetts’ with
McDERMOTT & NORTH (Melbourne)
Live in Concert at Zoe’s, Blackheath

Shop 1, 35-41 Govetts Leap Rd, Blackheath, NSW, 2785, Blue Mountains

Known for presenting unique and talented acts to the Blue Mountains over the last 12 years, Fusion Boutique is really looking forward to teaming up with Zoe’s (Formerly Blackheath Bar & Bistro – reopening 1st April) to bring the upper mountains even more quality live music and touring artists in an open entry format for you to enjoy.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Singer-songwriters Patrick McDermott and Rhys North share a rare and enigmatic musical talent. Emerging from Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley in 2016, the duo McDermott & North have already drawn praise from the Australian and international music industry alike.
Staying true to their busking roots, the pair approach every performance with the same precision and meticulous attention to sound. It is with this humility that they have elevated themselves as live performers and captivated the likes of Australia’s very own Ben Lee and Alex Lloyd whom they shared the stage with in 2021.

Their most recent singles ‘Ally’, ‘Georgia’ & ‘All Things Come And Go’ have received generous support from both Triple J & National NZ Radio as well as BBC Radio London. But most importantly, the indie-rock folk outfit have amassed an impressive and hardcore following everywhere they park their van.

Despite gearing up to relocate to Melbourne in 2022, their two sold out shows at Brisbane’s The Junk Bar in December are testament to the fact that the guys are only just getting started.

With live performance at their heart, the two have navigated their way across the Australian continent and brought their heartfelt, unassuming method of storytelling in song to a wide reaching, loyal fanbase in their time together.

“Luke Escombe is a rock-soul singer, raconteur, blistering blues guitarist, comedian and songwriter, and is very good at them all” – Sydney Morning Herald

Combining poetic lyrics with irresistible grooves and a renowned knack for finding humour in dark places, Luke Escombe is venturing out of his northern beaches idyll to perform an intimate show in the conservatory at Hotel Etico, 11 Montgomery St, Mt Victoria.

The ARIA-nominated owner of “Sydney’s sexiest man voice” is stepping aside from his band leader role with The Vegetable Plot to do a rare solo gig, delving into his back catalogue of albums like Mantown, Creeper Vine, Skeleton Blues and Chronic Symphonic, as well as previewing songs from his first new solo album in over five years: Whale Beach Road.

A formidable guitarist, engaging singer-songwriter, and highly entertaining vocalist, Luke Escombe’s shows are always fun, funny and (just a little bit) filthy.

Here one finds intricate, relevant lyrics of weight and beauty, underpinned by profound but constantly fresh acoustic and electric worlds. The band is a heavy fusion of musicians spanning jazz, folk, funk, metal, classical, electronic, indie and all the in-betweens. Performing as a trio for the evening joining Emily-Rose will be Nick Henderson on bass, and Luke Chapman on guitar.

The band has a debut album ‘Upon These Open Skins’ set for release in Feb 21 2022, with the already released singles ‘Complete as One’ and ‘Golden Light’ getting some love on the airways including Triple J, FBI radio and Eastside FM.

We are very pleased to welcome Gretta back to the Blue Mountains for her “Coffee Drinkers Anonymous Tour”.

Gretta Ziller is an Americana Folk Singer/Songwriter with an ever-growing list of musical accolades. Gretta started her career as an Opera singer and Bagpipe Teacher, her vocal style has changed somewhat since then, she does on the odd occasion incorporate bagpipes into her set … after all, there aren’t many folks that can sing AND play Long Way to the Top !!

But Gretta isn’t just a one trick pony, If you’ve been foolish enough to think you’ve nailed down her sound then prepare to have the rug pulled out from under you. Ziller’s roots span jazz, blues, rock, pop and classical, and that eclecticism is reflected in her songwriting. Her sound may bear the hallmarks of classic Americana music but its essence is far more diverse.

Her 2017 debut album ‘Queen of Boomtown’ received critical acclaim, it was long-listed for the Australian Music Prize in 2018 and receiving a Golden Guitar and an Age Music Victoria Awards Nomination. In 2020 Gretta received her second Golden Guitar nomination for Vocal Collaboration of the year, she also received an AIR Women In Music mentorship. 2020 also saw Gretta release the first single from her forthcoming album from a new home, signing to ABC Music.

Gretta Ziller returned in 2021 as an APRA PD finalist, her participating in the Global Music Match program through Sounds Australia and her sophomore album ‘Judas tree’ released September 17.

Judas Tree – Released 17th September, 2021
Second Hand – Released 16th September, 2019
* Golden Guitar Finalist ‘Vocal Collaboration of the Year’ 2020
Queen of Boomtown – Released 1st September, 2017
* #21 ARIA Country Albums Chart
* ‘Long Listed’ for the Australian Music Prize 2018
* Golden Guitar Finalist ‘Alt. Country Album of the Year’ 2018
* Age Music Victoria Awards Finalist ‘Best Country Album’ 2018
* Nominated for a Country Music Channel ‘New Artist of the Year’ award
* Slaughterhouse Blues ‘Honourable Mention’ International Songwriting Competition
* Slaughterhouse Blues ‘Honourable Mention’ Unsigned Only Songwriting Competition

POSTPONED – THE BUTTON COLLECTIVE Unplugged Album Launch Tour + Special Guest TBA at Junction 142 Katoomba, Blue Mountains – SAT 27th June 2020

Hello everyone, this event is still postponed as the online information indicates.

Restrictions on national touring as well as limited venue capacities due to social distancing requirements have meant that confirming the new date hasn’t been possible as yet.

Unfortunately as long as social distancing remains in place this particular venue can only accommodate 36 people in total including all performers and staff. So not enough guests in the end to make putting on a concert with touring performers viable at this stage (and keeping ticket prices accessible for customers).

I have moved the online promotion to a new temporary date for now but will announce the set date as soon as we are able to confirm.

If you have any further questions then please contact us directly:

Kind Regards
Charity

Fusion Boutique Presents
THE BUTTON COLLECTIVE UnButtoned (acoustic unplugged) concert
‘Make a Dead Man Sing’ Album Launch Tour
+ Special Guest TBA
live in Concert at Junction 142 Katoomba, Blue Mountains

Announcement: In light of the current situation surrounding COVID-19 this event will need to be postponed.
We are also in the process of working with the artists and venue on a rescheduled date and will advise of that as soon as available.

Saturday 27th June 2020, 8:30pm. Doors Open 7:30pm.

Listen to The Button Collective’s latest album release ‘Make a Dead Man Sing’ and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d slipped through the fabric into Australia’s colonial heyday. The album, recorded live on tape in front of a few small audiences, combines classic tales of Australia’s onerous past with personal stories from songwriter Brodie Buttons.

The Button Collective bring back to life an essence of Australia that has been largely drowned out by the hum of progress and development in this parched country. Brodie Buttons brings with his songwriting an air of wisdom well beyond his years. With an earnest yet jovial presence, he shares an intimacy and perspective that engages both young and old, and leaves audiences with that timeless kind of yearning for the simplicity of yesteryear.

As well as original folk songs, the five piece band perform their own fiery versions of traditional Irish, Australian, and old time American tunes passed down through generations. The performances range from heartfelt finger-picking to full-blown high energy party-folk perfect for a hoedown. In fact, their live performance is rumoured to actually Make a Dead Man Sing.

We advise booking early to avoid disappointment.  ***

To celebrate the release of their hotly anticipated debut album When We Fall, All Our Exes Live in Texas are hitting the road for a national tour. The Exes is a fantasy draft of Sydney’s finest singer-songwriters – Elana Stone, Katie Wighton, Hannah Crofts and Georgia Mooney – here combining in four-part, indie-folk harmony heaven. Having blitzed all corners of the globe from Ireland to the USA, earning accolades from the likes of NPR, Perez Hilton and CNN, racking up multiple nominations for the National Live Music Awards and being shortlisted for the Vanda & Young songwriting competition, not to mention sharing stages with the likes of Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Boy & Bear, Passenger and the Backstreet Boys (!!), as well as garnering parliamentary attention in Question Time as one of the country’s brightest acts, All Our Exes Live in Texas are thrilled to launch their album into the world.

On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, the Exes deliver tunes that are tastefully crafted within the context of a playful and utterly charming live show.
With four songwriters and four unique voices, the Exes make music that draws from the traditional, creating a new brand of modern folk. Fair warning: You’ll need your charisma sunnies or you’ll walk away a little bit in love.
The Exes are a powerhouse of vocals, charm and song writing prowess.

“Seriously, it’ll make you believe again. Don’t ever miss this band”The Music

“catch them before they’re famous and only perform for royalty and astronauts” – The Brag

‘All Our Exes Live in Texas have been touring over the past couple of years selling out venues all over Australia – its hard to feel sorry for someone singing a sad song when their talent is completely blocking any feelings of pity you could ever feel – they are the most badass girl folk group ever’Hhhhappy.com

“Sweet and charming, All Our Exes Live in Texas were a festival highlight. Soaring vocal harmonies, tight melodies, an accordion and a set peppered by the girls’ random audience banter left the audience in total adoration, with a standing ovation given to them – and rightly so” – The Music

“All Our Exes Live In Texas filled the Howler bar with incredible harmonies and a folky vibe. They clearly enjoy performing, and their talent combined with their relaxed and funny banter caused the audience to instantly fall in love with them. Their accordion and mandolin accompaniment in tandem with ukulele and classical guitar adds a unique dimension to their music, ensuring everyone who sees them play won’t be able to forget them. These guys certainly make a big impression” – The AU review

WALLIS BIRD (Ireland) live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

Sunday 18th Dec 2016, 7pm. Doors Open 6pm.

Irish dynamite Wallis Bird’s expressive vocals and driving guitar rhythms are being compared to artists like Ani DiFranco, Fiona Apple or the young Janis Joplin. Her exceptional voice moves from delicate whispers to explosive power songs, while her music fuses elements of traditional folk music, blues and funk with an energetic handmade rock sound.

Now based in Berlin, in the last 8 years Bird has played over 600 shows in Europe and won two Irish Music Awards. Her refreshingly raw honesty and humour have forged some very strong bonds with audiences worldwide. Anyone who has been to a Wallis Bird concert knows that this is not just entertainment: it’s a way of life.

This is Wallis Bird’s first tour in Australia, launching her new album “HOME”. She will perform at Woodford, Cygnet and Illawarra Folk Festivals. Unmissable.

“Frank and endearingly tender, a tsunami of emotion… Magnificent.”  – MOJO, UK

“The Sheer visceral energy of Wallis Bird could kick-start an entire economy.” – Irish Times

“FranIt’s her humour and bold honest that makes Bird so special.” – The Guardian, UK

Select + MAKEbeLIVE + Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with 
ALL OUR EXES LIVE IN TEXAS live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.

+ Special Guests Miss Eileen & King Lear

Sunday 9th Oct 2016, 6pm. Doors Open 5pm.

Things have been hotting up for All Our Exes Live in Texas, the most badass folkies around. Having completed their debut album, When We Fall, the fantasy draft of four-part harmony, indie-folk goddesses is pumped to hit the road and give you a taste of what’s to come as they premiere their new single, The Devil’s Part.
Fresh from taking the US by storm, not to mention sharing the stage with the Backstreet Boys, Passenger, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and Tiny Ruins, the Exes have been busy. They’ve been in the studio with Ryan Lewis of Macklemore fame, they’re confirmed as the national support for Boy & Bear, but most importantly they are doing what they do best: lighting up a stage near you and tantalising your earholes with songs, tales and laughter.

All Our Exes Live in Texas features Sydney’s finest singer-songwriters – Elana Stone, Katie Wighton, Hannah Crofts and Georgia Mooney – here combining in four-part indie-folk heaven. On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, the Exes deliver tunes that are tastefully crafted within the context of a playful and utterly charming live show.
With four songwriters and four unique voices, the Exes make music that draws from the traditional, creating a new brand of modern folk. Fair warning: You’ll need your charisma sunnies or you’ll walk away a little bit in love.
The Exes are a powerhouse of vocals, charm and song writing prowess.

“catch them before they’re famous and only perform for royalty and astronauts” – The Brag

‘All Our Exes Live in Texas have been touring over the past couple of years selling out venues all over Australia – its hard to feel sorry for someone singing a sad song when their talent is completely blocking any feelings of pity you could ever feel – they are the most badass girl folk group ever’Hhhhappy.com

“Sweet and charming, All Our Exes Live in Texas were a festival highlight. Soaring vocal harmonies, tight melodies, an accordion and a set peppered by the girls’ random audience banter left the audience in total adoration, with a standing ovation given to them – and rightly so” – The Music

“All Our Exes Live In Texas filled the Howler bar with incredible harmonies and a folky vibe. They clearly enjoy performing, and their talent combined with their relaxed and funny banter caused the audience to instantly fall in love with them. Their accordion and mandolin accompaniment in tandem with ukulele and classical guitar adds a unique dimension to their music, ensuring everyone who sees them play won’t be able to forget them. These guys certainly make a big impression” – The AUreview

+ Special Guests Miss Eileen & King Lear

Australian Brother/Sister Indie Folk Rock duo from Melbourne also known from the Perch Creek Family Jugband.

Lear’s pulling out the braces, the red suede shoes and screen printed t-shirts, Eileen’s donning her long vintage dresses and extensive collection of odd earrings in order to bust out with their brand new folk indie rock band!

There’s something about a sibling relationship that creates the perfect musical dynamic. With indie folk duo Miss Eileen & King Lear this is certainly the case, as there is a clear sense of familiarity and warmth in their performance.

No strangers to the music industry, Eileen and Lear Hodgkins have been performing since childhood in the roots/vaudeville act The Perch Creek Family Jugband. It was one long night on the Hume Highway that the idea to form a duo was born. While cramped in an overheating tour van, the pair started writing a song line for line. They formed a melody, came up with a chord progression and had a brand new song in their hands. Since then, creative sparks have been flying and their repertoire of original songs has grown substantially.

Miss Eileen & King Lear have found themselves signed to Decibels Records with an EP on the way. “It has all fallen into place really rapidly,” says Lear. “The co writing has been really organic and although we both have rather diverse musical tastes, there is a definite thread that seems to be stringing it all together.” Eileen and Lear each lend their own unique lead vocals on songs penned both individually and collaboratively. Their songs can be epic and sweeping, fun and frivolous or anywhere in-between, and are always delivered with an honesty that is both direct and refreshing.
The duo is gearing up to release their debut EP ‘Hungry Little Heart’ in mid September. Produced by Joe Ferguson with creative direction from ARIA award winning producer Jimi Maroudas, the Sing Sing mixed and mastered EP has come up sparkling. It features a fine cast of some of Melbourne’s hottest musicians including bassist; Grant Cummerford (Jeff Lang), violinist; Alex Burkoy (Tinpan Orange), keyboardist; Silas Palmer (Women in Docs), and guitarist; Sam Cooper (Sagamore, Fraser A Gorman and Big Harvest).

The future is looking bright for Miss Eileen & King Lear as the wheels are set in motion for the release of their ‘Hungry Little Heart’ EP. With a perfect balance of sweetness and sass, they’re sure to make one hell of an impression.
