City Sounds Gig Guide
Interviews and Features
City Sounds is Australia’s largest free live music program, presenting local and touring bands and artists in the Queen Street Mall, Post Office Square, South Bank and other locations around Brisbane each week.
With everything from alternative and folk, to jazz and electro, and everything in between, City Sounds has something for every music lover.
Blues harp player turned singer/songwriter blends and acoustic-folk sound with a string of charming and heartfelt narratives. Alongside his band made up of sister Rebecca Crook and drummer Scott Williamson, Alex creates music filled with infectious melodies and hooks.
Hannaka is the wild child of the earth. As a solo artist she creates an enchanting atmosphere, musing over wars and philosophies and esoterics.
Jo finds music making to be a invigorating experience, being inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling and Kate Miller-Heidke.
In between performing with Bjork, The Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar, the prodigious Hang player and percussionist Manu Delago will be touring Australia in 2017 Handmade Tour with his three-piece multi-instrumentalist band.
