Kristy Cox and Travis List

Kristy Cox is coming back to Adelaide, with Travis List, to play at Trinity Sessions. 

Billboard topping artist Kristy Cox has been awarded with radio success and accolades for her talent. Having signed with bluegrass label Billy Blue Records, Kristy has just released her brand new album ‘Shades of Blue’ in February 2022, following her latest award winning releases ‘No Headlights’ and ‘Ricochet.’ Kristy has been awarded 6 ‘Bluegrass Recording of the Years’ in the Australia’s CMA Awards (Golden Guitar Awards), her latest in 2023 for her track ‘Good Morning Moon.’ Praised for her performance and songwriting capabilities, Kristy has been shortlisted in the International Bluegrass Music Awards the past five years for Emerging Artist of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year and was a finalist in the 2019 IBMA Momentum Awards for Vocalist of the Year.

From a young age, South Australian, Kristy has captured attention with her distinct singing style and positive outlook, going on to open shows for major acts and appearing on television and major festivals across Australia, Europe and the USA. 

Over the years Australian country music has produced some great voices but not all have embraced the path of the new traditionalist like Travis List. Hailing from South Australia, now a Nashville resident, Travis List has soon become known as one of Australia’s premier male country artists. His songs resonate with authenticity, his voice holds its own with the best of them, and his live shows leave fans remembering why they first fell in love with country music. His main influences range from his father, a true Australian balladeer, Ian List to Merle Haggard and Slim Whitman. Travis perfectly demonstrates what a modern country ought to sound like, thoroughly contemporary yet completely country.

Mark Curtis and the Flannelettes

Mark Curtis and the Flannelettes are thrilled to be releasing their long-awaited debut record at Trinity Sessions 

Those moments when a song taps into your psyche, hints at your vulnerability, and makes you smile at the same time you feel seen – Mark Curtis offers them in spades.

Drawing influence from artists such as Wilco, Gillian Welch, The Beatles, Finn brothers and Daniel Johnston, he has a gift for communicating the fragility of being human in music that’s both poignant and playful. Teamed up with his Flannelettes, Bonnie Aué (upright bass), Michael Hutchison (drumkit), and William Jack (cello) he creates quirky songs drenched in harmonies, cynicism and humour. A little bit alt-country, a lot their own sound.

Support is Axe and the Ivory. With their intricate guitar melodies and moving lyricism, this five-piece outfit from Adelaide have revealed themselves to be a creative force in the Australian indie-folk-pop scene.

Shane Nicholson

Shane N 93 med.jpg

Having stepped into the third decade of his career with 11 albums, 3 ARIA Awards and 15 Golden Guitar Awards to his name, Shane Nicholson is only just getting started. 

At least, that’s how he sees it:

“As an artist, I feel like I am constantly finding a new voice, a new story. I’m loving making music these days…I think I’m much better at it now than I ever was before.”

The current album Living In Colour was named 2022 CMAA Album Of The Year as well as Alternative Country Album Of The Year, and spawned the single And You Will Have Your Way, which earned Nicholson both Single Of The Year and APRA Song Of The Year awards. Living In Colour was his seventh consecutive ARIA-nominated album.

In addition to being one of the country’s most in-demand music producers, Nicholson has just completed an extensive national tour for the Living in Colour album, and is now set to bring a career-spanning all-new show into 2023.

Karen Lee Andrews

karen lee andrews 11 med sq.jpg

We last saw Karen Lee Andrews at Trinity Sessions singing up a storm with Mahalia Barnes in 2022; her soulful voice and stage craft adding to one of the best gigs at Trinity Sessions. Here's your chance to see Karen headlining with her band bringing her original music and a range of soulful songs in an intimate setting. 

Karen Lee Andrews is in possession of a powerful sense of artistic purpose. Surrounded by music her entire life, Karen’s career to date has largely revolved around classic soul and rhythm and blues. The influence of soul, gospel and Karen’s Polynesian background continues to inform the music she creates. Karen’s new EP ‘Edin’ takes a more comprehensive journey through soul and blues music, while providing a candid expression of her personal identity.

Karen’s songcraft is built on a thorough knowledge of blues, gospel and soul music and motored by an undeniable hunger to connect. Yet the defining ingredient is Karen’s unshakeable artistic passion. Andrews mostly tours as a formidable trio, teaming up with Yanya Boston on drums and Adam Ventoura on bass – two exceptional musicians. This dynamic band is exhilarating to witness!

“One of the most original and dignified talents to emerge in Australian Entertainment in a long time. She manages to be both imperial yet vulnerable.”
Sydney Morning Herald

“Andrews is on an inspiring and passionate musical journey. A must see.”
Beat Magazine

“Soulful and bluesy, with so much heart and pain, delivered with so much class.”
Sound of Oz

Supporting Karen Lee Andrews is Ryan Martin John and band. Wandering through the deserted sonic dreamscape of 70’s Laurel Canyon, Ryan Martin John is an introvert with a deep love of songwriting and pondering. Folky with a notable country flair, Ryan’s sonic spectrum ranges from a dynamic, intimate hush when solo to a harmony-gilded, guitar-laden fanfare when playing with his full band.
