Fed Square Live MC - Walter Musolino
Presenting the Fed Square Live artists each week will be Man City Sirens front man, Walter Musolino. Walter is passionate about helping other Australian artists who have set out on the road of creative endeavour.
29 January, from 6pm
Enjoy upbeat pop, folk, jazz, blues, rock and reggae tunes from Melbourne singer/songwriter, Shelley Segal. Accompanying herself on guitar, this eclectic artist uses her intimate storytelling and biographical lyrics to unite her songwriting across all genres.
Get up and dancing to the Latin beats of Divina Providencia, a Melbourne-based collective of musicians from all over the world. Between them, the five-piece band have lived and played music on six continents. Enjoy their world-music style as they perform songs from Colombia, Cuba, Jamaica and traditional South American dance music.
Listen to the unique music of Zikora, a five-piece band from Melbourne. The group incorporate contemporary harp, African-influenced percussion and classical teachings to bring about a fresh Australian funk-folk-pop sound. Not really knowing how best to describe their music, they’ve coined the genre ‘Drum & Harp’ – a musical blend that you wouldn’t think would work until you hear it!
Soak up the soulful sounds of Melbourne-based four piece, Amy Alex. Led by songstress Amy Tankard and accompanied by fellow Melbourne musicians Josh Stainer (electric guitar), Tomas Strode (electric guitar & bass) and Ben Teniswood (drums), the band aims to create a stripped back sonic landscape underpinned by Amy’s evocative vocals.
Local to the Mornington Peninsula, Maddison Wilson is an inspiring and engaging artist. While her music can essentially be described as ‘pop’ (slightly quirky, mostly soulful), in a world with a thriving indie-pop culture, it is rare to discover a solo artist who can still captivate an entire audience from behind nothing more than a piano.
Tom Lukas is an emerging singer/song writer and producer from London. His music has influences of John Mayer and Eric Clapton with hints of blues. He also spices things up with the use of a loop pedal, and can create a whole band sound from his voice and one guitar, with lyrical, beat boxing tracks. Tom has already played at over 70 live music venues in and around the UK and has appeared on a number of radio shows and festivals.
