Event details

With a voice described by Rolling Stone as ‘an almost other-worldly instrument of beauty,’ Nick’s tender balladry is infused with dry humour and self-deprecating storytelling. A creative force in ARIA nominees The Earthmen, Nick Batterham is a master of crafting sparkling, melodic pop songs. His songs bristle with spiky observations, delivered with the world weariness of Elliott Smith or Nick Drake.

About this concert

Drawing deeply on his recent classical compositions for visual artist Rone, Lovebirds is a lavish feast of orchestral pop that celebrates love’s dizzy highs and heart-wrenching lows. With elegant orchestrations featuring some of Melbourne’s premier classical musicians, Lovebirds is a sometimes melancholic journey that leads to hope and healing.

Performing the Lovebirds album in full on grand piano, Batterham is accompanied by Kelly Day (Broads), Nick Murray, Ben Wiesner and award-winning theatre composer and sound designer Jethro Woodward.
