After four years at the helm of the duo Tigerlilly, singer-songwriter Lydia Fairhall shares her much-loved sound with her new band the Black She Oaks.
Formed in the mountain ranges and creeks of the Mary Valley and the vibrant streets of Melbourne, Lydia Fairhall and the Black She Oaks possess a warm folk, pop and alt country sound, which blends seamlessly with the down-to-earth vocals audiences have praised in Fairhall’s music over the years. It features some of Australia’s finest players, including Chris Pickering (guitar), Sam Pankhurst (bass), Kali Blunt (vox/guitar) and Ben Graham (drums).
This intimate and inspiring concert – the band’s first live performance – features a sneak peak of some of the songs off their upcoming, debut album, True North. Lydia Fairhall is renowned not only as a formidable songwriter, but as a performer who can crack you open and put you back together again, better than you were before. With the Black She Oaks, she discovers an even deeper musical bond, directing us to reconnect with the flow, ease and beauty of humanity.
