Live Review: Neil Finn - Sydney Opera House (19.03.14)

Immediately prior to Neil Finn’s performance at the Sydney Opera House, I was having a discussion with a friend about the notion of relevance in the modern music industry. In a landscape dominated by what is 'trending’ - which people have unbridled access to and are constantly seeking out music that is weeks, days or hours old - keeping an audience’s attention for even just two albums is a triumph that eludes most artists.

Live Review: Neil Finn + Joshua James - Hamer Hall, Melbourne (12.03.14)

Joshua James, from Salt Lake City, Utah, opened tonight’s show at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall. Appearing in duo form with long time guitarist and backing vocalist Evan Coulombe, the young man’s intense delivery, earnest persona and delicate yet gruff voice were immediately arresting.
