Melbourne based singer/songwriter/musician Felix Thorne and her band make their live debut at Open Studio, heralding the release of her long awaited EP The F Word.
Felix Thorne is an alternative pop artist with a background in musical theatre, influenced by artists such as Kate Miller Hiedke, Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos and the crooning sounds of Gavin De Graw.
When it comes to songwriting, Felix is unabashedly honest, raw and theatrical.
Infused with an idiosyncratic brand of dry humour, her lyrics traverse emotional themes of friendships falling out, family turbulence, deep feeling, and introspection.
As an artist with a natural, strong sense of self, she aims to empower young girls to express and accept themselves from an early age.
Local Hellenic starlet Stavroula Thomopoulos & Con Kalamaras team up to present a first of many intimate performances. Fusing hardened Rebetika, elegant Smyrneika and nostalgic Palia Laika, ERINAKI will take you to another time, another place.
Using contemporary elements, the essence of Asia Minor, the Athens of old and a peppering of Melburnian optimism, this is a performance not to be missed.
