Josh Kyle @ Stonnington Jazz Festival – 19 May 2012

Hi guys,

Last week I had the pleasure of performing at the 2012 Stonnington Jazz Festival, as part of the Josh Kyle Quartet.  Josh Kyle is a great young singer who now lives in Melbourne, via Sydney and a stint in London.  His sound is original, not simply because he’s one of the few male vocalists in town, but also because he plays a lot of electro-sounding tunes/arrangements.  He writes interesting lyrics, and most of all, the guy can really sing!

Below is some video of some of the tunes from our gig at the Malvern Town Hall.

That night we were on a double bill with Rai Thistlethwaite, who most people know as the frontman from Thirsty Merc.  What less people know about Rai is that he’s a really great jazz pianist, too!  It was really cool to hear him play his compositions solo (piano and voice) – they had some really interesting and unexpected (yet musical) twists to the way the harmony and melody interacted with each other, which made for some great music.

Overall, a real fun night!
