Fierce Attachments Tour
They say the best music lives underground, and if you haven’t heard of Bek-Jean Stewart, one of Australia’s most prolific songwriters, now is your chance to see this incredible artist as they perform a string of intimate shows in late 2022 to celebrate the release of their sixth studio double album, 'Fierce Attachments'. An intimate evening on the Dorrigo Plateau with Indie /Rock /Americana songs and stories. Bek-Jean and the band will be playing new songs from the latest double album 'Fierce Attachments'. They will also play some of the old favorites from previous records and a sneak peak into some of the new tracks from the forthcoming album 'Under Stars'.
Stewart is a world class act, and commands their audiences through the storytelling nature of the songs. With their raw and honest accounts of living authentically as a non-binary person, the songs are dynamically woven; a telling of intimacy whilst being playful and deeply cinematic. The integrity of the songs is often in contrast with the irreverent nature of their performance.
Audiences will experience an intimate and feverish performance, both liberating and fascinating to watch. Stewart bares all and is unfailingly willing to delve deeper into self-reflective themes which include grief and loss, addiction, death, gender stereotypes and the unfettered challenges of the human condition. Stewart’s gritty unrestrained vocal contrasts with the vulnerable, fragile emotion of the lyrics, jolting the storytelling to life. Stewart brings the stage alive as a captivating front person with a musical breadth that spans composing, arranging and playing acoustic and electric guitar, drums, banjo, harmonica, keyboards and percussion.
Opening the night is Emily Vera White, presenting her debut album 'Kingdom Of No Thing', playing a set of self reflective sublime songs stripped back - just her and piano. DON'T MISS!
