A Friday night gig


Even if you don't know who Hugh Wilson is - you've definitely heard him... his powerful voice has been one of the most used sounds on Australian television - from tv commercials to aussie dramas. He first grabbed the attention of the media with his win of the StarSearch contest ( similar to Australian Idol ) in the early 1990s. He now lives in New York, and when he's not producing albums, he's writing and recording jingles for Sprite and Microsoft, or touring with Lenny Kravitz and AeroSmith.
This concert will be a one time opportunity to hear Hugh in an acoustic and intimate setting - playing his own songs - with long time friends Andrew Massey on drums and Spike Mason on bass. Expect some special guests to sit in too...





The long-awaited launch of Clea Crimson’s debut album “Home Is Where The Art Is”.

The album is a collection of jazz/folk infused songs written by Clea and recorded live over two days at Aphek Studio with some of Sydney’s best jazz musicians (Bill Risby, Ben Ackland, Steve Elphick, Toby Hall and Spike Mason).

“I enjoy the process of recording live songs with the band – rather than tracking everything separately and then putting it all together.” says Clea. “It is an intense focus, to sing every time knowing it might be the one that goes on the album. We were exhausted at the end of the two days but I think we came away with a great result.”


Luke Pittman will open the night.  Growing up on a steady musical diet of Metal, Punk Rock and eventually Neil Young, one might be expecting a musical outcome sounding something like a very cranky bloke singing folk music.  The result is in fact laid back tunes ruminating on Love, God, Love, Satisfaction, Love, Dissatisfaction and the ocean, all presented in a voice sounding some what more like Tim Buckley than Jeff Buckley.  After a few years off, he returns to the stage in 2011 with a newfound relaxed stage presence that only comes from re-assessing life's bigger questions and coming up with very few answers.
