Cigány Weaver:

Live at Yonder Festival, Mary Valley, 29 November 2019

Brisbane-based Romani-style jazz ensemble Cigány Weaver have been working hard to win over audiences with their spectacular live shows for several years now, including spots at the Woodford Folk Festival, Caloundra Music Festival and MONA’s Dark Mofo.

The band’s debut, self-titled EP was released in 2016 and was a live recording of interpretations of song from the history of film. Their debut album from 2019, also self-titled, showcased both original material and a few older standards.

While normally a six-piece, this set recorded at Yonder Festival’s Wunderbar Stage featured the band as a slightly stripped-down four-piece, with Jo Davies on vocals, Gareth Mewes on violin and Rory Dollard and Conor McDonald on guitars.

Recorded by Lauren Holyoak
Mixed by Joseph McCormack

This set was mixed by an audio production student from the Queensland University of Technology as part of their course. We’d like to give special thanks to Yanto Browning and John Willsteed at QUT for facilitating this collaboration.

Recorded at The Bearded Lady, West End, 12 July 2019

Moreton is the musical project of Georgia Potter, a songwriter who divides her music-making time between Brisbane and Byron Bay. After playing under her own name and in other peoples’ bands for several years, she released her first EP under the Moreton name in 2016, titled “Specimen”. She has just released a new single, “See Yourself”, featuring James Vincent McMorrow and a second EP entitled “The Dog Years” is due soon. While Moreton is normally a full band prospect, our team caught Potter in solo mode.

Empress:

Formed on the Gold Coast, Empress released their debut self-titled EP in 2017 before playing their first live show several months later. Comprised of Chloe Cox, Benjamin Smith, Julian Currie, Shaun Allen and Jackson Tuchscherer, the band have since consistently gigged around town, developing their enormous onstage sound.
