1 March @ Chevron Gardens, Elizabeth Quay ∙
Presented by: Perth Festival ∙

Possessing a vocal that melts hearts and weakens knees, Grammy nominee Emily King is equal parts soulstress and pop princess. Rolling out caramelised ditties from a place where the café meets the dancefloor, this daughter of an internationally renowned jazz duo blends soul, pop and swoon with an understated grace fostering instant intimacy.

Joining this New York heartthrob is The Cat Empire’s Harry James Angus with his latest incarnation Struggle With Glory. Backed by Melbourne maestros, Angus continues to cross musical boundaries, transporting the classic Greco-Roman myths into a surreal world of old-time jazz and gospel music. Revenge, giant beasts in strange lands, the doomed love affairs of Gods and men and the unstoppable torrent of fate are served up with the unmistakable sound of Angus’ old dented trumpet.
