This gig was a lot of firsts. My first time seeing all these bands perform live. My first time properly meeting Iris G after years of catching each other’s eye at gigs and only talking over social media. Iris G won last years Smokefree Rockquest's solo-duo. I can’t wait to see the places she will go, and hopefully, I’ll get to shoot them!
I was very moved by Being's performance. Having heard so much about Jasmine Balmer's mesmerising sound from friends, I was so excited to hear Being Perform for the first time. Another artist that will be going places.
To be honest, I’d never heard of BEACHWARE until seeing them. But I fell in love with their summer like feel; they reminded me of late nights on the beach and surfing.
What a joy it was just to stand on the sideline and see the love and joy pouring out from this act! I had the immense pleasure of shooting one of my favourite Aussie bands, The Jungle Giants while they performed their new album 'Quiet Ferocity'. It was about time that they came over the water to play here.
If you haven't heard The Jungle Giants tunes, you need to. You can't help but bob your head and tap your feet to their groovy beats, my go-to for happy vibes.
