Music on the Hill (MOTH) Friday 3 October line up

Friday 3 October – Red Hill Pavilion

Tobias Hengeveld, The Grand Magoozi and Tim Stout.

We are excited to announce that the second MOTH line up will be an eclectic mix of singer songwriting talent.

Tobias has been a consistent presence in the Melbourne Indie-folk scene over the past decade, as one half of the duo Scout Hall, principle songsmith of The Night Bell and then under his own name. With an approach to lyric and melody that is distinctly his own, his voice calls through a landscape of situations that ring familiar with Australian audiences.

He recently released his third solo album The Daylight Express, the much anticipated follow-up to his 2009 release All The Lines Are Downwith which he toured nationally and internationally.

The Daylight Express was written in the old freight room of the Brunswick Railway Station (inner-Melbourne), through the winter of 2012. As resident artist there, Tobias spent many hours wrangling words and ideas with amps up really loud, or otherwise just huddled over a crappy heater with a parlor guitar.

Recorded through 2013 with producer Robbie Rowlands, Tobias turned his front room into a make-shift recording studio. He was joined by local music luminaries Ash Davies on drums, Andy Papadopoulos (Ron S Peno & the Superstitions) on bass and Steve Hesketh (the Drones) on keys, among a host of other special guests.

Tobias will be performing mainly solo and acoustic at MOTH.

Support will be provided by Melbourne-based The Grand Magoozi (aka Susie Scurry). She writes and sings romantic, witty and nostalgic songs that grapple with the frivolous nature of current times. Her lonesome voice and serenading guitar compositions are reminiscent of artists such as Karen Dalton, Jolie Holland and Patsy Cline.

Local singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tim Stout will start proceedings.

Doors open at 7.00pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance here.

Don’t forget ‘AfterMoth’ for drinks and nibbles at The Long Table restaurant from 10.30pm–Midnight.
