Turns out you can stop the music!

Dear Sound Doctor supporters – Turns out you can stop the music!

We are sorry to be announcing that unfortunately our upcoming March shows will no longer go ahead. At this time it doesn’t seem right to be risking anyone’s health even when music might seem to be exactly the tonic we need.

We fully support our artists’ decision to cancel their tours and we will be in touch with ticketholders as soon as possible to arrange refunds. It is unlikely these shows will be rescheduled but we hope to be able to bring you more great music when the time is right.

Thanks to everyone for the ongoing support of The Sound Doctor Presents. We encourage you to extend that support to our artists at this tough time by buying merch – they all have great albums out!

Do you want the good news or the bad news?

If you haven’t got tickets to our Friday 27 and Saturday 28 shows at the end of March, for Dyson Stringer Cloher and Seeker Lover Keeper respectively, then unfortunately you’ve missed out!

But the good news is that we’ve managed to snag Dyson Stringer Cloher for an extra show who will now bring their awesome songs to Anglesea on Thursday 26 March, as well as the sold out Friday 27. We’re making this one a little more intimate with seating and standing options but the vibe will be just as great, especially with support from George Carroll Wilson’s exhilarating solo project Pollyman. Don’t miss out this time around – get your tickets now!

While you’re here, make sure you sign up to our mailing list – this way you’ll be the first to know about upcoming shows and get first access to tickets. Let your friends know too!

If you’re hoping to find a ticket to our Sold Out shows, the best bet is to head to our Facebook page and post a request on the specific Event. If you’ve got one to sell we recommend heading there too. As always, be cautious about buying and selling tickets and please do not pay or sell at more than the ticket price.

Starting 2020 with a bang!

Fresh from touring their debut album and following a string of Festival appearances, Dyson Stringer Cloher bring their awesome live show to Anglesea on Friday 27 March. Featuring the inspired guitar playing and exceptional songwriting talents of Mia Dyson, Liz Stringer and Jen Cloher, this powerhouse trio share songs that are warm, heartfelt and real. 

Seeker Lover Keeper is the collaborative project of three of Australia’s most beloved musicians – Sarah Blasko, Holly Throsby and Sally Seltmann. Twelve years after they first met and eight years since they last played together, they released their second album Wild Seeds and spent 2019 touring it around the country in huge sold-out shows. Now they’re bringing their virtuosic songwriting and harmonies to our coast on Saturday 28 March.

Get in quick to secure your tickets to see these six incredible artists in two intimate live shows. They are already selling extremely quickly, so if you want to be there please don’t wait!

Or if you’ve been extra generous they can use any left over voucher money towards any Sound Doctor ticket in the next 12 months. Happy Holidays indeed.

Gift Vouchers can be purchased here. 

Get to know Ruby Gill

How did you get started in music?
My mum took me to a Midnight Oil concert in utero, so I assume that’s where it all began. But I guess it got real when she sent me to classical piano training, aged 4. Within a decade I was stuck in a rabbit hole of Baroque fugues and cool modes and one day realised that I could use that theory and muscle memory to make my own music and say my own things. Turns out I had a lot to say, and it all sort of went downhill from there. I sat down with my dreams of ornithology and radioastronomy and told them that unfortunately the songs would have to come first. They haven’t always come first because life is more complicated than that, but music is and will always be central to my expression and existence on this planet. 

For those who don’t know you, how would you describe your sound?
Uber drivers ask me that question a lot, and my answer is always ‘it’s folk music but it’s angrier’. I don’t particularly like using other artists’ names in vain, but a review from a recent show described my set as a cross between Joni Mitchell’s musicianship and songwriting and Alanis Morissette’s view of life and the world. I am okay with both of those if they help.

Who are your music idols or inspirations?
Joni Mitchell and Alanis Moridsette. Jokes, I’ve had a spectacularly broad range of influences. My dad force-fed me The Pretenders, Bruce Springsteen, Missy Higgins and Billy Bragg until I practically lost my accent, and my mum raised me on afro-jazz and South African folk music – Vusi Mahlasela, Dollar Brand, James Phillips, Zolani Mahola. When I was falling in love with writing songs, my favourite artists were probably Glen Hansard and early Chris Martin, and more recently I have found deep inspiration in people like Margaret Glaspy and Leif Vollebekk. And Mary Oliver and Leonard Cohen taught me about words. As long as it’s got a real story to tell, it gets me all giddy. 

What has been your musical highlight so far?
Last year, I went back to South Africa on a short tour supported by Melbourne local Billy Barker and a range of brilliant young SA artists that I used to know, and those were some of the most moving
sets I’ve ever played. We sold out practically every headline show, I got to play at my favourite festival Oppikoppi as the sun was setting over the Limpopo savannah and I felt homesick and invincible all at once. Setting your feet back down on home soil is so powerful for your sense of self,
and getting to express that new, weathered, travelled self to a mix of old and new audiences that just pitch up despite the fact that you’ve been gone for so long wrecks me – in the best way. 

What are you most looking forward to about playing in Anglesea?
I fell in love with this country purely via my experiences on the South West Victorian coastline. There’s a peace and a creative energy in these waters and I can’t wait to drink it all in with this little pulsing community that The Sound Doctor has created. What a privilege to play such big and warm shows on stages shared by some of my favourite artists. Didirri is rare bird, such an extraordinary vocalist and songwriter.

Ruby Gill is supporting Didirri on Saturday 5 October

Fall in love with Olympia

A selection of five of Olympia’s finest tracks.

Put this Sound Doctor selection of five of Olympia’s finest tracks on high rotation and we’re sure you’ll be rushing to hit the Buy Now button. 

With her stunning voice, ripping guitar playing and rock-sure attitude it’s no wonder the music press has gone completely nuts over Olympia’s album Flamingo. 
It’s even been nominated for the Australian Music Prize! Her recent live shows in Europe have had fans raving (and non-believers turned into groupies) and now it’s your turn to see what all the fuss is about.

‘Dazzling’
‘A wonderfully envisioned album.’
‘Alt-pop perfection.’
‘One of the most inventive and exciting indie rock releases of the year.’
‘Relentlessly original.’

We could go on and on – instead we’re saying BOOK YOUR TICKETS now!
