Tom Cooney + Angharad Drake with Open Swimmer (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Brisbane singer/songwriters Tom Cooney & Angharad Drake are thrilled to announce that they’re teaming up for a series of tour dates that will see them touring the east coast in the New Year and performing at The Gasometer Upstairs on Thursday Jan 4.

Tom Cooney’s most recent offering Futurerpoof is arresting, raw and stunning in its honesty. At times lilting and delicate and at other moments hollow and desolate, the album is a time stamp filled with both sorrow and light that has garnered rapturous praise to date. Rolling Stone stated that “Cooney’s gift for clear-cut, often pastoral imagery and wide-open atmosphere makes Futureproof well worth poring over,” while hhhhappy.com calls Tom Cooney’s work “a masterwork of restraint and a monument to folk.”

Newcomer Angharad Drake is a young songwriter on her way to big things. Her debut album ‘Ghost' boasts a collection of hauntingly beautiful and pared back melodies teamed with subtle but emotive lyrics. Recently returned from a series of international tour dates, Angharad is currently working on new music for a forthcoming release.
