Noonan takes on Bangalow
Katie Noonan and her new band The Captains will perform at the Bangalow A&I Hall this Saturday, March 27.
Having just completed a new album Emperor’s Box (with producer Nick Didia) Katie and the band are keen to play live and promote their single Page One.
It’ll be good to hear Katie Noonan’s pure voice in a live situation – she is one of Australia’s most versatile vocalists. This multi award-winning and five time platinum-selling songstress first received widespread praise as the angel-voiced songstress of indie-pop band George. She has since taken audiences on excursions through jazz, pop, rock and classical music. Over the last two years Katie and The Captains have been slowly building a repertoire of new songs, many of which are on the album.
Also performing on the night is Brian Campeau.
Celebrated for his powerful voice, distinctive instrumentation and unusual arrangements, Brian Campeau is no regular singer/songwriter. He’s trying something a little different. His new album, Mostly Winter Sometimes Spring, sees him take a very different approach to songwriting, while continuing to make the most of his gift for melody and mood. One instrument was chosen for each song on the album, and played in whichever way seemed to work best at the time. (Imagine melodicas being hit, cellos plucked, harmoniums thrown and glockenspiels strummed.) He misuses instruments to create a special effect. Either that or the man has some serious issues...
The gig starts at 8pm. Doors open at 7pm.
Tickets are $30 from Barebones in Bangalow, Mullum Books, All Music & Vision Stores (Ballina, Byron, Lismore), and from www.kupromotions.oztix.com.au.
