Get along to The Spotted Mallard on Friday 9 August for this cracking lineup - Rich Webb Band + Orph + Matt Malone - all this and free admission! There's no better line-up happening this side of the river, and no finer venue.
Melbourne singer-songwriter Rich has just won the 2019 Independent Music Award for Best Alt-Country Album (Le Rayon Vert) in New York and Best Alt-Country Single (Let it Rain). He'll be with David Grabau on guitar, Emilie Martin on violin and keyboards, Hugh Martin on bass and Scott Lacey drums.
ORPH is the combination of the rock solid pop genius of Pete McCracken's songwriting, the jazz-inflected punk supertones of Dani Elle on bass, the pick me up stick up of young Ade Scott the explorer on drums, and the grindmasting power of The Wall Samuel Maughan on guitar. It's the combination that makes this the best unknown of any known that you might happen to know. Punk rock, Art rock for a better day.
