Saturday 16th May
Danny Ross + Reilly Fitzalen and Dead Arrows + Danika Smith
On Sunday May 16th The Reverence is for soloists , with three of Melbourne’s most engaging singer-songwriters arriving to transport the room with acoustic ambience, rich reverbs and rarefied reflections
Danny Ross is an artist with a musical background that is best left summarised by his compositions . He has shared international stages and radio playlists as diverse as the moods he tends to traverse during a set, accompanied by a guitar style that is a masterful mix of 60’s Brit-folk , Spanish-Classical and early delta-blues playing . Overall there is a transcendent quality to his songs – suffused with a dark , melancholic wit that evolves his performances into something difficult to forget .
Supported by Reilly Fitzalan , a young troubadour who appears on stage as a kind of post-apocalyptic Neil Young . With a soaring , achingly embodied tenor voice that comes perfectly coupled with an insistent , affecting songwriting style that is distinctly his own. Reilly’s self produced first single “Your Stars” effortlessly clocked up over 70,000 plays on Soundcloud. The “Dead Arrows” EP that it belongs to is shaping up to be just as cohesive and appealing a release .
Danicka Smith’s music burns into your consciousness like the softest lamp light . Before you know it there’s a hypnosis you’re under and it’s the only place you need to be . Its lilting , yet fierce and sovereign – Like if Mazzy Star listened to Courtney Barnett for a winter
