This Way North with guest Parvyn

this way north sq 1.jpg

Years on the road, touring in Australia and abroad, gave two-piece indie pop-rock band This Way North an appreciation for open space and adventure. Landing in north-east Victoria on Dhudhuroa country when the pandemic hit, long-time friends, collaborators, and partners, Jungalwalla and Leahy traded freedom on the road for a home amongst ancient trees and high-country valleys. This unexpected move, drawing in close and giving themselves the gift of stillness, prompted unbridled creativity and culminated in their upcoming debut album, ‘Punching Underwater’, set to be released in February 2024. 

Full of rapturous nostalgia, This Way North’s music takes you from moody, tremolo-tinged heart-tuggers to pounding driving alt-psych rock through a sonic landscape of reverb-soaked guitars and rolling rhythms. With odes to 90’s rock sitting on air-tight grooves and full, cinematic spaciousness, This Way North’s music is a portal to summer festivals, their love affair with the road, and an open invitation to turn up the volume and let loose.

Genre-drifting flow-state pop melds with classical Indian raga melodies, soul and jazz – all anchored by Parvyn’s ethereal, inimitable vocals. Nominated for ARIA 2022 'Best World Music Album', her debut solo record ‘Sa’ has influences from Bjork to Anoushka Shankar, and is immersed in a reflective world of different cultures and perspectives. Also known as singer in cult-psychedelic, vintage bollywood inspired band The Bombay Royale and touring globally since childhood with her father Dya Singh. Accompanied by Josh Bennett on guitar in an intimate performance of her album material and preview of future recording projects.

Karen Lee Andrews

We are so pleased to have Karen Lee Andrews back at Trinity Sessions in 2024 after her electric performance with us in 2023. 

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 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. A massive festival favourite backed by a formidable world class band (Yanya Boston on drums and Adam Ventoura on bass) that provide an exhilarating live performance. 
“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

Eric Bogle - The Career

Bogleband.jpeg

An extravaganza incorporating sixty of his songs in three two hour concerts. Australia’s greatest folk singer-songwriter (and Scotland can claim him too) Eric Bogle turns eighty later this year and to celebrate, instead of contemplating retirement, he has created an extravaganza incorporating sixty of his songs in a chronological sequence in three two hour concerts, first (Sat afternoon) showcasing his earlier songs (yes, that includes ‘Matilda’), then the middle period (Sat evening) and finally twenty of the more recent songs (Sun afternoon). We strongly recommend coming to all three. It is an amazing body of work, and there are probably sixty more he could add to the concerts, but we’ve only got one weekend. Eric will be accompanied by longtime friends Peter Titchener and Emma Luker, and we are honoured to be the venue selected to present this event, which will be staged at only one other venue in Australia this year.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT PRICING. Tickets are $60 per individual concert. For all three concerts the total price is $120. For two concerts the price is $100.

Grace Petrie

Grace Petrie Square.jpg

In a welcome return to Trinity Sessions, Grace Petrie is launching her new album "Build Something Better". 

It’s over two years since CONNECTIVITY (2021) smashed into the top 40 and debuted at #1 in the UK download chart, propelling the fiercely independent voice of GRACE PETRIE from critics’ choice to the main stages of major festivals across Britain, Australia and Canada.

For a seasoned road dog who spent almost 15 years clocking up tours with the likes of Billy Bragg, Frank Turner and Hannah Gadsby, the COVID lockdowns were like a cage for Petrie and when restrictions lifted, she hit the road harder than ever, armed with her most searing and successful record to date, and determined to make up for lost time. Sell-out headline tours across the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand followed, with audiences from Melbourne to Toronto mesmerised by the ferocity of her socially urgent lyricism and the barnstorming power of her live show. But travelling the globe hasn’t diminished her laser focus on the political issues plaguing the UK, with two more Prime Ministers, endless blunders and evermore division seen since she last swapped microphone for pen and paper.

Now the songwriter is back - stronger, older and a whole lot angrier than ever before. As right wing ideologues trade in suspicion and cynicism, tearing communities apart against a backdrop of crumbling public services, the ordinary folk of Britain continue to suffer the consequences of corruption and individualism. 

From within this maelstrom of despair comes BUILD SOMETHING BETTER - the new, uncontainable album from Grace Petrie.

Recorded raw and unflinchingly with folk-punk legend Frank Turner in the producer’s seat, BUILD SOMETHING BETTER is a return to blistering protest form for Britain’s most relevant political songwriter, a decade after being hailed as “a powerful new voice”, (The Guardian) and “a millennial’s Billy Bragg” (Huffington Post). In a world that seems to make less sense than ever, these are songs made to both holler along to from the crowd barrier and to tear up with on a lonely night train. A record for everyone whose broken heart beats for, and whose boots stomp in time with, the hope a brighter tomorrow.
