Melbourne singer-songwriter Imogen Pemberton and Blue Mountaineer returning home, Oliver Downes, are thrilled to hit the road this December with tour dates across VIC, ACT, NSW and QLD.
Singer-songwriter Imogen Pemberton mesmerises with lush vocals, aching melodies and sophisticated fingerpicking. Offering songs from her debut EP Spine (2016), as well as road-testing a swag of new material ahead of recording her debut album in January, Imogen offers folk ballads that are haunting, heartfelt and raw. Together with tour-mate Oliver Downes on cello, she conjures soundscapes of startling organic purity to break the heart and nourish the soul.
Oliver Downes blends instantly hummable melodies with athletic keyboard playing and thought-provoking lyrics. Packing ‘soaring melodies and sharp wit in equal measure’ (Tone Deaf), his debut album Ultraviolet (2016) took a leaf from artists such as Ben Caplan and Kate Bush to offer a sweet blend of dreamy ballads and exhilaratingly kinetic tunes.
Join Oliver Downes & Imogen Pemberton this Saturday Night, 6:30-8:30 pm. Come along early if you want a seat as it's first come, first served. Bar & Kitchen open, free event. Lounge Sessions @ Hotel Blue is brought to you by 'Music in the Mountains'.
