Get ready to bliss out on the sweet, sensual vocals of Skye Edwards as Morcheeba return to Australia after a 4 year absence.
Morcheeba define the ‘chill out’ genre with songs like “Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day”, “The Sea”, “Even Though” and “Otherwise”. Played in cafés, lounge rooms and at Sunday sessions around the world, there are few who can’t sing along to these beloved tunes.
Their new album SKYE | ROSS pursues its own musical path while returning to the roots of the sound that made Morcheeba a household name back in the late 1990s. With a music career spanning 22 years and millions of albums sold worldwide, Morcheeba are a true phenomenon.
Their Sydney and Melbourne shows are a chance for fans to dance to the smooth sounds of these pioneers of British trip-hop and soul.
Supported by WALLACE
Future soul singer and songwriter Wallace Gollan resonated with music at a young age. With a background in traditional Jazz, a father whose heavy penchant for Blues influenced Wallace’s own musical inflection, and a natural pull towards hip hop and soul, Wallace’s music is an exciting mosaic combination of all of the above. She possesses a type of sound others have labelled in the vein of Erykah Badu, Little Dragon or Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan. She couldn’t be more perfect to open for Trip-Hop pioneers Morcheeba in Sydney.
What sets her apart is her truly unique voice and immense charisma. Wallace applies her multi-award winning jazz trained licks and intonation to create a rich layer of distinct harmonies causing heads to turn. Wallace is the type of artist that forces everyone in ear and eye shot to stop an pay attention.
Having only released 5 singles, Wallace is fast establishing herself as an artist to watch. Some of her most notable achievements to date include the numerous awards she won in her early years in New Zealand; a swag of glowing reviews from international taste makers and publications; high profile international supports such as Slum Village; winning the JJJ unearthed Listen Out slot for Sydney; high profile playlist adds on Spotify and collaborations with acclaimed international acts such as Kraak and Smaak and outstanding Australian peers such as Sampa the Great.
With a couple of deals recently falling into place, Wallace is most definitely an artist to keep a close eye on in 2017.
