Katie Noonan’s Elixir – The Gratitude and Grief tour

Multi-platinum selling and five-time ARIA award-winning singer and songwriter Katie Noonan returns to her jazz trio Elixir for a magical afternoon of music and poetry. This successful trio exists to explore new musical opportunities and relationships and thrives in unusual collaborative environments – where text and sound meet.

In a first for The Sound Doctor, we’re bringing beautiful music to your Sunday. The concert will feature the new ‘Gratitude and Grief’ collaboration between Elixir and Michael Leunig, showcasing a unique combination of poetry, angelic vocals and sublime improvisation. With some of Elixir’s previous catalogue and a few of their favourite songs by other artists, this promises to be a truly special musical event.

An Evening With Archie Roach

Since emerging in the early ‘90s, Australian singer-songwriter Archie Roach has enjoyed a stellar career, sharing the stage with some of the world’s most iconic artists. Perhaps best-known for his heartbreaking song, ‘Took the Child Away’, a deeply affecting ballad about his own experience as one of the Stolen Generations of First Nations’ children, Roach has released 11 albums including his most recent Dancing With My Spirit.

His music speaks the stories of his people, of this land and of the human condition. His voice – uniquely Australian and undeniably universal – resonates for us all and we are humbled to be able to share this special evening with our Sound Doctor audience.

‘[Archie’s] soulful voice, filled with love, pain, joy and wonderment is stronger and richer than ever.’ The West Australian

Meet Our Special Guest Support Acts

We’ve told you all about our exciting headline artists already, so now it’s time to introduce the special guests who’ll be opening our November gigs.

Jason Lowe is a name familiar to many music lovers on the Surf Coast. But for those who haven’t yet had the pleasure of hearing him perform, we asked him to describe his sound.

‘My sound could be described as Alternative/New Age Folk, inspired in particular by the legendary singer songwriters of the 60s and 70s. I sing and perform my songs on lap slide guitar, acoustic guitar and piano.

What I love most about performing live is connecting with the audience, and the energy exchange that takes place. The heightened emotional levels that can be experienced are profound. I reach out to an audience with my soul not only through song but through storytelling and personal interaction.’

If you take a look at this clip you’ll understand just what Jason means.

If it’s heavenly harmonies you’re after then it’s Broads you want to hear. We asked Kelly and Jane to tell us how they got started together and what they love about performing intimate shows – like you’ll experience when they come to Anglesea.

‘We were singing together for about 10 years before we decided to start Broads. We were one half of an acappella band called The Nymphs, but also got around as guest singers and backing vocalists for a whole bunch of different bands in Melbourne. It was a long time coming, but we eventually knew we had to create our own project.

We love intimate shows because the best feeling as a performer is when you really connect with an engaged audience. We often play with a full band these days, but being able to go back to our original form, as an acoustic duo, and create something personal and raw is such a rush. It’s why we do what we do!’

Check out their dreamy sound here!

An Evening with Mama Kin Spender

Mama Kin Spender is a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, co-writers and mischief-makers – ARIA-nominated Mama Kin and producer Tommy Spender. It’s a stripped back duo of brooding guitars, primal drums and howling harmonies, illuminated for this show by four beautiful backing singers.  Their songs rattle, roll and tremble, from block party to heart rending ballad, with a sound that is as raw as it is joyful.

Since the release of their album Golden Magnetic in February, Mama Kin Spender have been flat chat, cramming in a national album launch run amidst shows at festivals around the country. Fresh off the back of their USA, Canadian and Irish tours, they will be rounding off 2018 with an Australian tour that includes this stop for The Sound Doctor.

As if this wasn’t enough to get music fans excited, we’re also announcing that Mama Kin Spender will be supported by Melbourne queens of indie-noir Broads. Drawing from an era of highly performative crooners, Broads deliver haunting, narcotic and deceptively sweet songs laced with tongue-in-cheek criticism of the culture from which they stem.

An Evening with All Our Exes Live in Texas

All Our Exes Live in Texas are a fantasy draft of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters combining in four-part indie-folk harmony heaven. On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, the Exes are a powerhouse of charm and songwriting prowess.

Known as much for their side-splitting banter and feminist politics as their devastatingly beautiful harmonies, All Our Exes Live in Texas have had an impressive career to date. Since forming for an O Brother Where Art Thou? tribute show in 2013, they’ve circumnavigated Australia more times than they can count, playing sold-out headline tours and almost every festival the country has to offer. And they topped off 2017 by winning an ARIA for Best Blues & Roots Album.

No strangers to the Surf Coast after their Lorne FOPA artist residency in 2016, we are excited to be bringing the gals back for their final headline show before they take a well-earned break from touring. Anyone who has seen the Exes before knows what an amazing night this will be – so get in quick to secure your seat!

Special guest for the evening will be Jason Lowe, known and loved by many along the Surf Coast. More details soon…

An Evening with Fraser A. Gorman

Fraser A. Gorman might be a familiar name to Surf Coast locals. He grew up in Torquay and played in a high school garage rock band at many local venues and around the country. After touring the world three-times over with his critically-acclaimed 2015 debut album he took some time out from music – but now he’s back armed with a brand-new album and off on a national tour that includes this special ‘homecoming’ gig. Fraser’s songwriting builds around his ability to convey his life, hopes and fears openly with sun-drenched tones and lyrical wit. His new album has a warm and timeless feel – think laid-back Americana with a driving pop sensibility.

Supporting him on the night is another incredibly talented local, Bec Goring. This electrifying guitarist and singer plays music that blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz.

An Evening with Emma Pask

We’re planning a very classy night out in Anglesea with award-winning vocalist Emma Pask. Described by James Morrison as ‘the greatest gift to Australian jazz vocals in the last decade’, Emma has performed for adoring audiences including the late Princess Diana and Princess Mary of Denmark. She even sang at Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s wedding and Latin superstar Ricky Martin is a huge fan. She is sure to delight audiences as she interweaves storytelling through timeless swinging jazz standards, upbeat Latin rhythms, tender ballads and some raucous blues.

Supporting her on the night will be local jazz outfit The Stills performing music to get you in the mood!

To make the evening just that bit more memorable we’ve invited The Ugly Cousin pop up bar to mix up some cocktails with Great Ocean Road Gin. Pre-order yours when you book your tickets.
