Grace Robinson "Coward" Launch with Tali Mahoney & Bailey Judd

Tickets $7+BF/$10 on the door. Doors 1.30 PM

Grace Robinson, a young Melbourne musician, announces the release of a new single, following her debut album, 'With Fire' release from last year. After selling out the Spotted Mallard for the launch, Grace fell into music hibernation to pursue her year twelve year for 2018. Making a comeback into the scene, Grace plans to release new single “Coward” in early July, and launch the tune downstairs at the Gaso with her band as a matinee gig on July 7th. “Coward” was recorded with Roger Bergodaz in Union Street Studios, Brunswick west, with her 7 piece band constructed from Melbourne musicians she went to high school with. The song, funky with a hint of sass, embodies the old school soul that Grace comforts, but with a splash of the Melbourne indie pop scene. Her captivating combination of jazz and blues mixed with pop influences create a distinctive sound, complimented by her powerful vocals. With Influences varying between Missy Higgins, Lake Street Dive and old school Carol King, Graces songs of love, loss and longing are relatable to any passing listener Graces songs depict maturity beyond her 18 years. With the release of her first album at the age of 16, Grace has established herself as a young but powerful voice in the Melbourne music scene, with her title track “With Fire” appearing on the Triple J roots charts throughout 2017. Coward is a soulful song about taking the higher ground and realising that what people say about you, sometimes really says more about them. Joining Grace on the stage is the ever so talented Bailey Judd, a young guitarist/singer that was born with the sold soul of Robert Johnson but admits he struggles with the problems of a whiny teen. Judd will be joined by trusty friends Matt Dooley and Ben Cooke to grace the stage with his bluesy and groovy tunes. Tali Mahoney will then take the spotlight, a kick ass front liner with the catchiest and most relatable songs for any passing listener. With her electric guitar glued to her hands and her trusty band, her old school pop and unbelievable pipes are addictive. Becoming a large player in the Melbourne music field, she is not an act to miss. This gig will be loud, funky and fun, and no doubt with a lot of rootsie tunes and classic covers. If this sounds like your kind of jam, from 1pm on Saturday the 7th, downstairs at the Gaso is the place to be.
