Josef and Jan Prasil, twin brothers who together form AMISTAT are easily recognizable for their acoustic set heard on the streets of Melbourne. Originally from Europe, the brothers reunited in 2013 to rekindle their music. Inspired by a life on the road, Jan and Josef’s kinship is emphasized through their lyrics, in which these young musicians infuse their sentiment, hopes and ambitions. Having recently launched their highly anticipated second EP " Somewhere Sometime " at the Kelvin Club to a SOLD OUT crowd, it is onwards and upwards for these talented brothers as they begin to form somewhat of a cult following in not only Melbourne but all over Australia. Whoever has experienced AMISTAT and their wonderful sound live on stage or busking on Bourke Street Mall is oddly touched by the emotional investment in their music.
Co-headlining the night alongside the boys will be Timberwolf who is the modern folk project and performing alias of Chris Panousakis, a blues/rock inspired 22 year-old singer/songwriter from Adelaide. With strong roots in 60s/70s blues and rock, his take on modern folk music emulates soulful but cryptic songwriting, complemented by a melodic blend of guitars and vocals. Similar to the boys he is a young man who still believes in keeping true to his roots through the art of busking, which has also started to create a large amount of recognition for this talented artist.
The night will be rounded out with two very special guests and close friends of the acts in Sam Brittain who will have just returned from a whirlwind trip of Europe. As well as Roots of Music up and comer, Harrison Storm who will have his partner in crime Justin Lewis (from Sons of May) by his side for this big occasion.
