Now that winter is over, we’ve emerged from our hibernation ready to bring more amazing music to Anglesea Memorial Hall on Friday 30 September & Saturday 1 October.
We already have An Evening with Ben Lee for the Friday very close to selling out (so get your tickets now if you don’t have them already!).
Now we’re super excited to announce Maple Glider with Ruby Gill on the Saturday. This gig promises to take you back to Sound Dr shows of old, where you’re serenaded by beautiful sounds from two of the hottest indie-folk artists going around (both performing with their bands).
Maple Glider is the project of solo artist Tori Zietsch (Peach with a Z). In the singer-songwriter tradition, her music is centred around the lyrics, exploring intimate themes and often serving as a self-catharsis. Offsetting the heavy-nature of some of the words, Maple Glider herself is humorous, fabulous and warm.
After releasing her hypnotic debut album, To Enjoy Is the Only Thing, last year Maple Glider has been making quite the name for herself, performing her acoustic-tinged, ethereal sound and honest lyricism around the country. The golden sweetness of her music has been likened to a generous embrace and her sultry vocals are reminiscent of Angel Olsen or Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker, so of course we’re thrilled she can bring her full band to The Sound Doctor.
Joburg-born, Naarm-based artist Ruby Gill is no stranger to Sound Doctor audiences, who fell in love with her powerful lyrics and quirky style when she supported Didirri in 2019. We’ve been waiting to have her back and with the release of her arresting debut record I’m gonna die with this frown on my face today, it seemed the perfect time.
Ruby sings the sort of songs that can quiet a room, induce full body goosebumps and bring you to the brink of tears, all before the chorus. When she performs with her band it will be mesmerising! Come for the wit, stay for the emotional repercussions.
