"SONGS & WHISPERS" CIRCUIT 08/2012 "Germany meets Australia"
The following artists will be part of the tour across north-western Europe:
MARK MUSTANG (Kassel, GER)
He sounds like a grooving band, but it’s just him! Mark Mustang is jamming with himself, with his six string acoustic guitar and his voice. He sounds like playing guitar, bass and drums at the same time while performing catchy melodies in sophisticated songs.
Extraordinary abilities and a novel concept lead to an interesting style that makes Mark Mustang hard to compare with any other musician. His songs don’t want to be categorized. He presents the classic blues as well as something that might be classified somewhere between Funk, Blufunk, Art Rock and Improvisation.
Influences: Keziah Jones, Keb' Mo, Joe Bonamassa, Pink Floyd, John Lee Hooker, John Butler, Jimi Hendrix, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Guns N' Roses
„Klingt unerhört pur und geht doch ordentlich ab!“ (Frizz Magazin, Kassel 2012)
TOM RICHARDSON (South West Victoria, AUS)
If Bob Marley surfed his way across to Mississippi, stopped in for a cup of tea with the devil before flying over to Fiji for choir practice, you would be left with something that resembled Tom Richardson.
Described as the “best opening to a festival yet!” (Port Fairy Folk Festival), Tom uses the latest in loop pedal technology to create a wall of sound, overdubbing four part vocal harmonies, complicated percussion grooves and lead and rhythm guitar parts, all live on stage.
Similarly, there are very few accolades missing from Tom’s trophy cabinet. From performances to the release of two LPs, Tom has been fortunate to collect such awards as Solo Performer of the Year and Best Debut Album at the Victorian Blues Music Awards, as well Best Emerging Artist awards at the Port Fairy Folk Festival, Nannup Music Festival and Apollo Bay Music Festival.
He also received the highest number of nominations at the Australian Blues Music Awards and was a finalist in the Vanda & Young Songwriting competition, Australian Songwriting competition and APRA professional development awards.
Influences: Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Robert Johnson, Dave Matthews, City & Colour, Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne
“Tom has huge potential and the proposed ‘project’ is timed perfectly to further build his creative work and inject another critical boost to his career in music. I will eat my dinner suit if this project is not a roaring success!”
- Jamie McKew – Festival Director
Port Fairy Folk Festival
Since January 2009 “Songs & Whispers”-concerts take place every month in different venues around Bremen. International and local artists are fascinating a growing audience in special venues like historical cinemas, theatres and cozy bars. The musicians’ genres vary from Alternative Folk, Alternative Country to Americana, Bluegrass or Singer-Songwriter. The atmosphere of the concerts is changing with the choice of venues and lives from the artists’ interaction with the audience. An important characteristic of Songs & Whispers is that most concerts are played acoustic or semi-acoustic.
Songs & Whispers is aiming at creating a worldwide network of musicians and an exchange of ideas from different artists and nations. We are presenting a selection of international artists and local supports every month. Furthermore we try to be a platform for other musical organisations like schools of music in letting them perform in our supporting program.
