Guests: Emily Victoria, Sunny
**Update 4 June – Za Noon is longer able to perform, they will be replaced by Sunny**
Warm your souls with Melbourne artists Midnight, Za Noon and Emily Victoria for an evening of dreamy tunes at the newest live music space in the inner west – Mamma Chen’s in Footscray.
EMILY VICTORIA writes music which sounds full and rich, exploring a dreamlike landscape. Her music draws from the layered sounds of groups like Cocteau Twins and Lush with an introspective lyrical thread throughout. Emily is due to start releasing some newly recorded music later this year. This set will also feature Anthony Farrugia (guitar), Sam Clarke (electric bass) and Jacob Long (drums).
Singer-songwriter Eileen Francisco is MIDNIGHT – a musical alter ego formed after a year of lockdowns, heartache, and grief. As part of a duo, Midnight is accompanied by drummer/percussionist Heather Wright who has 25+ years music experience. As a way to process complex emotions, Eileen spent many nights in front of the piano and Midnight was born in 2021. Midnight has a collection of melancholy songs that span between contemporary genres including indie, alternative and piano-ballads and covers heartfelt themes of grief, isolation, and solitude.
SUNNY Morris is a trans folk artist/poet who writes about family, gender and love. They have an album coming out soon called ‘Hearsay’ – the first single ‘Help’ is out now!
