Live Review: Jen Cloher + Ainslie Wills + Fraser A Gorman - Corner Hotel (28.06.13)

Fraser A Gorman is dressed completely in black and stands on the stage at The Corner, clutching an acoustic guitar. For such a young man, he initially appears sombre and serious. Despite his demeanour, between songs he quite affable, and tells a humorous tale or two with a sly grin. Under his Bob Dylan style fro, vocally, he’s like an amalgamation of Sam Cooke and Woody Guthrie. Full of country styling and boyish charm, he’s here to play a hand full of songs that are reminiscent of gospel hymns and doo-wop music.

Live Review: Ainslee Wills - FBi Social (18.04.13)

Out to celebrate the launch of her debut album, You Go Your Way I’ll Go Mine, Ainslie Wills put on a superb show that only further proved both the songstress and her band to be immensely talented. Writing melodic folk rock that brings the likes of Joan As Policewoman to mind due to her ability to be both soothing and highly powerful, Ainslie Wills delivered a show that is bound to have inspired the room full of punters at FBi Social to purchase her latest offering that came out in early March. Wills was fittingly supported by Elana Stone, with Stone similarly embracing her background in jazz whilst drawing upon other rich musical styles.
