Returning the Dust Temple with the SONGBIRDS Series … for and about our extraordinary women singer-songwriters! This next instalment will be a collaboration of five Gold Coast ‘Songbirds’ - the stunning Felicity Lawless, Julie Hayes, Naomi Connell, Elena Marcigot & Mel Scarlett. This very special concert will bring together song, story, harmony and community, and will celebrate our women artists, their voices and their songs.
VISIONARY, BOHEMIAN ROCKER, FELICITY LAWLESS STIMULATES THE SENSES AND ELEVATES THE SOUL WITH MUSIC FUSING GYPSY, WORLD, ROCK AND FOLK ELEMENTS. SHE IS ON A MISSION TO UPLIFT THE WORLD WITH AN ETHEREAL STYLE WHICH TRANSCENDS CLASSIFICATION.
From the streets and tapas bars of Spain and bustling Japanese live music venues, to Australian festivals, bars, and restaurants, Felicity Lawless has delighted many diverse audiences with her journey through sound and emotion. Her music is characterised by a flashy, Spanish guitar style, soaring vocal melodies and hypnotic rhythms. Felicity performs with an energy that elevates and inspires while infusing her crowds with enthusiasm and joy. Having honed her craft busking around Australia with nothing more than her guitar to feed her, it is little wonder that she has learned to capture and enchant audiences with virtuosity and sincerity.
Of Irish origin, the tradition of storytelling is embedded deep within Julie Hayes’ core. Whether captured by her hypnotically, haunting melodies or inspired by her poetic twist on life’s mysteries, prepare to be swept up in an emotive, atmospheric haze.
Her musical roots of folk and rhythm stem from a culture as old and timely as the misty mountains. Having drawn inspiration for her vocal style from artists like Eva Cassidy and Florence Welch, spacious melodies allow you to truly hear the song’s intent. Fuelled by a passion to express with vulnerability, her lyrical rawness and open heart is engaging and deeply moving. Julie's dynamic approach guides the listener from contemplation to celebration. Expect moments of stillness that give rise to dancing for nobody other than yourself.
“Mel Scarlett is one of those voices who bleeds like a sunset and grinds like a rusty wagon wheel. Emotional and intimate yet cheeky and wild, Mel sings the blues the way it was written”
