Singer-songwriter Alice Skye, a proud Wergaia & Wemba Wemba woman, has emerged as one of the most formidable talents within the Australian music scene. Originally from country Victoria, she grew up aside the sandstone mountains and wildflowers of the Grampians. Still inspired by her roots, Alice now calls Melbourne home.
Her critically acclaimed debut album Friends With Feelings in 2018 captured the hearts of punters and industry alike for her original songs that sparkle with a sensitivity and maturity well beyond her years.
2020 is set to be another big year for Alice, with the upcoming release of her sophomore album I Feel Better But I Don’t Feel Good via Briggs’ prolific indigenous label, Bad Apples Music (Island Records /Universal Music). Produced by Jen Cloher, the album will be out later this year.
Alice recently joined us for the huge Vic NAIDOC 2020 Concert, which streamed online as part of the week’s celebrations. We’re thrilled to have this incredibly talented artist back on the Hamer Hall stage as part of this series.
Filmed in Hamer Hall on 18 June 2020.
Presented by Arts Centre Melbourne and the Australian Music Vault. Supported by Victoria Together.
"Love that stripped back, reverb filled piano and voice. Very raw, really beautiful."
“The listener is drawn into Skye’s world through her deeply absorbing musical arrangements and the intimate lyrics.”
Ziggy Ramo’s razor-sharp lyricism and effortlessly cool musical talent have positioned him as an essential voice in Australia’s national conversation. When it comes to racialized discrimination and injustice, silence is violence - making Sydney-based hip hop and freestyle artist Ramo the roaring sound of peace.
Every performance by this band is as epic as it is honest, raw and human. In an era when the world is falling apart with such a deafening roar, Cash Savage’s voice rings loud over the cacophony with powerful songs of politics, grief, and rage.
This event is co-presented by Arts Centre Melbourne and the Australian Music Vault demonstrating our ongoing commitment to supporting, sharing and celebrating Australian music. Supported by Victoria Together.
