Touring to celebrate the release of her second EP Bloom, Sahara Beck’s reputation is growing exponentially as a result of national and international radio airplay and crowd pleasing appearances at myriad festivals throughout Brisbane and south east Queensland. She was also invited by Katie Noonan to contribute a track to the Songs that Made Me compilation album and will feature in the Long Player Sessions as part of the G20 Cultural Celebrations.
Beck’s hometown show at Black Bear Lodge is part of a tour that takes in Sydney, Newcastle, Adelaide and Melbourne, as well as some regional centres. A quirky, diminutive performer, Beck delivers a catchy and captivating collection of songs with a casual confidence and that belies her youth.
The Gold Coast-based Amy Shark, meanwhile, has been plying her trade in venues large and small on the glitter strip for the last five years or so, along with appearances at events such as Valley Fiesta and The Teneriffe Festival and support slots for artists such as Matt Corby and The Delta Riggs. Released in July, her latest single Spits on Girls has attracted plenty of radio airplay and positive reviews, but it is her live shows that really provide a dynamic and diverse showcase of her talents.
