A rare chance to see not one but two of the very best young American singer-songwriters together on the one bill.

Arizona's Courtney Marie Andrews, who has been compared to '60s and '70s greats like Bonnie Gentry and Linda Ronstadt, is no stranger to Australia. But she's been through some big life changes since we last saw her, and you can hear about that on her latest album Old Flowers, which the NME described as "devastatingly intimate and open-hearted", "meditative" and "exquisite", and which Rolling Stone said brought "to mind classic Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell." Old Flowers, which also received a 5-star review in the London Times, continued Courtney's international ascent which begun in 2016 with Honest Life and which took a further step with May Your Kindness Remain in 2018. 2021 has also seen the publication of Courtney's first book of poetry, Old Monarch. First time visitor, Nashville-raised Erin Rae, arrives just weeks after the release of her highly-anticipated second album Putting on Airs. Recorded by Cosmic Country polymath Jonathan Wilson in the musically hallowed grounds of California’s Topanga Canyon, the album see Erin embracing more of her influences, like baroque-pop and indie-folk while mirroring a more compassionate self-view she calls “accepting my humanness”.

A rare chance to see not one but two of the very best young American singer-songwriters together on the one bill.

Arizona’s Courtney Marie Andrews, who has been compared to ’60s and ’70s greats like Bonnie Gentry and Linda Ronstadt, is no stranger to Australia. But she’s been through some big life changes since we last saw her, and you can hear about that on her latest album Old Flowers, which the NME described as “devastatingly intimate and open-hearted”, “meditative” and “exquisite”, and which Rolling Stone said brought “to mind classic Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell.” Old Flowers, which also received a 5-star review in the London Times, continued Courtney’s international ascent which begun in 2016 with Honest Life and which took a further step with May Your Kindness Remain in 2018. 2021 has also seen the publication of Courtney’s first book of poetry, Old Monarch.

First time visitor, Nashville-raised Erin Rae, arrives just weeks after the release of her highly-anticipated second album Putting on Airs. Recorded by Cosmic Country polymath Jonathan Wilson in the musically hallowed grounds of California’s Topanga Canyon, the album see Erin embracing more of her influences, like baroque-pop and indie-folk while mirroring a more compassionate self-view she calls “accepting my humanness”.
