Photo Gallery: Passenger + The Once - QANTAS Credit Union Arena, Sydney (23.01.15)

Live Review: Passenger + The Once - Adelaide Entertainment Centre Theatre (20.01.15)

A sheet of cross-legged fans formed the floor of the theatre, hungrily awaiting a sign of life. Rosy-cheeked children munched on iceblocks while grey-haired couples chattered close by; an unspoken harmony connected the audience and made Passenger’s warmhearted energy evident long before he hit the stage.

Passenger played to a lively and enthusiastic crowd at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Tuesday night. Kerrie Geier was there for the AU review.

Live Review: Passenger - Palais Theatre, Melbourne (17.01.15)

Over the weekend, Passenger was back in town and played a wonderful and comical show at Melbourne's Palais Theatre. The english singer-songwriter not only demonstrated that he oozes musical talent, but that he also knows how to charm an audience and have us spilling over in hysterics. You would be forgiven for thinking you had walked into a musical comedy show.

Festival Review: Byron Bluesfest (Day Four) - Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm (20.04.14)

A slow start for many today, the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm seemed to be easing in to Sunday at Bluesfest - snoozily/slowly working through hangovers from Saturday night, it was an easy guess that there may not be as many in attendance today as there had been over the past few days. It was of no matter to me however, as I scored myself a spot on the lawn at Crossroads for C.W Stoneking to kick off my music schedule for the day.

Festival Review: Byron Bluesfest (Day Three) - Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm (19.04.14)

Day Three. The halfway point. A chicken wrap and a chorizo stick down and I’m ready to go again, dropping by the Crossroads stage, where Lime Cordiale are already in the midst of their Saturday Bluesfest set. The Sydneysiders, who I’d last seen play in Austin, have only gotten better over the last few years and seeing them on a stage this big was a great way to open the day.

Byron Bluesfest brings the big guns in Jeff Beck and the Dave Matthews Band for third day of music!

The surprises kept on coming for the 25th anniversary of the annual Byron Bluesfest tonight, with guest appearances, surprise busking sets and more carrying on throughout the day.
