Event Details

Oliver Downes - Ultraviolet

Singer-songwriter Oliver Downes is thrilled to launch his debut album ‘Ultraviolet’, with an intimate evening of acoustic song. Oliver blends intricate, percussive piano playing with soaring, hummable melodies and thought-provoking lyrics.

Recorded following a hugely successful Pozible campaign, ‘Ultraviolet’ is a lush cut of richly orchestrated chamber pop, featuring the talents of Oliver’s sister, Holly Downes (double bass) and Chris Stone (violin) of art-folk trio The String Contingent, who will join him in Wonthaggi.

Traversing territory reminiscent of artists as diverse as Ben Caplan, Radiohead or The Dirty Three, ‘ultraviolet’ offers a rich blend of dreamy ballads and exhilaratingly kinetic acoustic pop, charting a musical passage through the darkness into the light.

‘[Downes’] compositions and arrangements create nebulous, ethereal soundscapes, deftly woven by the tensile orchestration… Give your mind permission to wander' (The Music).

Jake Amy

Jake is an Australian-born musician whose style of performing is no-doubt eccentric.  Rhodes piano is always an essential sound for Jake, imitating colours from the Herbie Hancock era, but his out-of-box thinking always lends itself to some interesting avant-garde compositions on his main instrument, the piano. He has worked as an assistant live sound engineer, recording engineer, teacher, and mixer, and will present a set of modern jazz compositions.
