Whoa. Three dreamy voices, a great little venue, and a few gin and tonics. What a way to spend a Saturday night.
The night began at Jive with Woodes - a singer/producer from Melbourne who makes the creamiest of tunes. I'd previously heard two of her songs, which I was mildly obsessed with, but I was so pleased to hear more of her repertoire that I couldn't find on the interwebs. Woodes began the set with her signature oohing and ahhing, immediately reminding me of Banks' new album - The Alter. She told the crowd that her debut EP will be finished by this Thursday and released soon after, exciting the crowd who had arrived early to hear her whimsical melodies.
Launching into Poison, Woodes' producing skills were showcased through the perfect mix of raw vocals and keyboard matched with pre recorded sounds and augmentation, while her second song on the EP Byron, was a perfect musical portrayal of Byron Bay's beach side, with lyrics about the ocean and summer vibes in the laid-back beachy town.
After an incredible James Blake cover and another song off her forthcoming EP, Woodes played her two most known songs, Daggers & Knives and The Thaw to end what was an incredible set.
Next up was Robbie Miller, a folk singer/songwriter from Brisbane who took us on an emotional roller coaster throughout his acoustic set. From chilled tunes to more upbeat melodies, Robbie was enigmatic with raw emotion present in every verse and chord. I put this down to his solo performance for the evening, after touring with a band for the previous part of the tour.
Last but not least was Dustin Tebbutt, kicking his set off with his latest release, First Light. Dustin's husky voice was immediately received well by the now slightly intoxicated and excitable crowd. Throwing in a few jokes after some awkward feedback, Dustin continued to move punters with Plans from his 2015 release 'Home' and newest song Give Me Tonight - proving to be less acoustic and laid-back, giving way to a more produced sound. Demanding stage attention was Where I Find You, arguably Dustin's most popular track, executed flawlessly by the band.
All in all, it was a bloody great night, with three great artists.
