Taylah Carroll, Alana Wilkinson & Bec Sykes at The Wesley Anne
Date and Time
250 High St, Northcote VIC 3070, Australia
Join Taylah Carroll, Alana Wilkinson & Bec Sykes for an intimate night of folky tunes in the Wes band room.
Taylah Carroll shares unashamed and frank tales of her own coming of age and reflections of what it is to be human, set against a dreamy and nostalgic soundscape.
Taylah’s music wants to reach out and hold her audience, whilst at the same time waking them up to the anxieties, fears and love that both plague and embellish our lives, highlighting the commonality of all human experience through a nuanced and detailed lens.
Equal parts vulnerable folk singer and vitriolic pop-punk poet Melbourne artist Alana Wilkinson is turning heads with a string of high profile shows showcasing her wit humour and insightful social commentary.
Combining delicate melodies with disarmingly insightful vignettes about the human condition Wilkinson is a smiling assassin. Her songs skewer ex-lovers would-be suitors, ridiculous social norms and the absurd challenges of suburban life in a merciless yet strangely affectionate way leaving audiences feeling that they have stumbled across a particularly poignant and often hilarious diary. As one reviewer remarked "so cute yet so brutal".
This past year has seen Wilkinson to be the support of choice for such artists as The Pierce Brothers, Bob Evans, Eddi Reader and Sarah McLeod as well as playing at festivals such as Nannup, Blue Mountains and Queenscliff.
Bec Sykes creates introverted folk music from a bedroom in Melbourne's outer east. Layering moody melodies upon minimalist piano and guitar, Bec practices the art of subtley. 2017 saw Bec release an EP and tour throughout Victoria as one half of Someday June. As part of the duo, she has supported artists such as Patrick James and Ayla.
