Live Review: Riley Pearce + Dylan Wright + Kat Wilson - Blinco St. Cafe, Perth (02.07.15)

Feature: Five emerging artists from Perth you need to have in your life right now

There's nothing better than discovering a band before they break into the market. You get to see them earn their chops while you stand front and centre, learning every song and becoming one of their first fans. But sometimes it helps to have an idea about where to look! Over the past two weeks, we've been traversing the country and bringing you some of our favourite new discoveries in the local scene. We finish up in Perth today, where these five artists, in no particular order, call home:

Live Review: Riley Pearce + Kat Wilson + Indigo - The Astor Lounge, Perth (28.06.14)

Local singer-songwriter Riley Pearce spent the majority of the first half of this year in America on exchange. Saturday night saw Pearce and his band play their first headlining show since his return to Australia and Perth. Those of you who follow Pearce on Facebook are no doubt already be aware that his time overseas was not spent idly, with visits to SXSW, songs getting written and gigs getting played. Saturday's gig was not only a chance to get the band back together, so to speak, but also to test out these new songs in front of a home crowd and with the band.

Live Review: Kim Churchill + Steve Smyth + Riley Pearce - Mojo's Bar, Perth (05.06.14)

Kim Churchill’s national tour made it to Fremantle on Thursday night, with a packed out mid-week show at Mojos, the second of three shows in Western Australia. Impressively and a little surprisingly roughly 80-90% of the crowd were already milling about outside the venue before the doors had even been opened, guaranteeing a great atmosphere right from the start.
