Music for climate at the Gasometer Hotel
A packed Gaso Hotel was treated to 5 very impressive performers last Thursday night. The night was billed as an Earth Fest benefit with proceeds going to climate action group, Lighter Footprints.
What a night! We review the 5 acts below. Do yourselves a favour and go follow these talented performers on Facebook or Instagram
A big thanks to Jade and Ivoris and all the performers for creating such a great event.
James kicked off the evening with his acoustic guitar an extension of himself, and with songs from the heart. His voice gives the lyrics clarity, and take you take you along on a journey at times soulful, at other times upbeat. A great begiining to the night from a talented artist. Definitely a guy to look for. Check out James more on Instagram, Soundcloud, and YouTube, or stream his album! Images: Julian Meehan
Telenova are a Melbourne three-piece, fronted by the alluring vocals of multi-disciplined creative Angeline Armstrong, alongside the refined musicality of Edward Quinn (Slum Sociable) and Joshua Moriarty (Miami Horror). Telenova’s sound is strong and musically tight. Unequivocally Melbourne yet global.

Jade Alice: one of the organisers of ‘Earth Fest’, Jade has a personal connection to Lighter Footprints as the granddaughter of Carolyn Ingvarson. She brought forth feelings of longing, nostalgia and heart-break at times.
Jade finished with a gutsy rendition of Abba’s Gimme! Gimme! Gimee (A man after midnight). Can’t imagine where she would have absolutely tapped into that sound!
Thanks Jade for making this a beautifully entrancing night. With a heart and soul like Jade’s we’d better listen!

Ivoris: Melbourne pop artist and co-organiser of ‘Earth Fest’ . One gets the feeling that Ivoris would make you laugh and then make you laugh and cry with her songs from life , sung with an intensity of feeling that few can achieve. Ivoris compels you to listen to her voice, one that is strong and with words that had all of us at the ‘Gaso’ captive. Could be your next best artist to follow. Another to Follow.
Yergurl: Emerging with fresh material this year, her single ‘until we meet again’ marks Yergurl’s unfolding maturity and un-erring upward trajectory. Her vocal style is captivating and could be the dance track you were looking for.
Originally stepping into the spotlight in 2018 as a finalist Triple J’s Unearthed High Competition, Yergurl is one to follow. Check out Yergurl’s Instagram and Spotify – are on YouTube – Until we meet again, and ShakeIt.
