Seymour Centre's contemporary music program, Seymour Nights, returns for Sydney WorldPride.
Offering free gigs at dusk in the Seymour courtyard and coinciding with eight brilliant Sydney WorldPride events, Seymour Nights @ Sydney WorldPride will champion local LGBTQI artists and new sounds, with appearances by Seann Miley Moore, Tanzer, Dyan Tai, and more.
Join us for free performances from some of Australia's most vibrant voices, wickedest DJs, and most daring drag artists, all in the leafy, summery surrounds of the Seymour courtyard.
Seann Miley Moore is an Indonesian-Australian singer known for competing in season 12 of the X-Factor UK, and in season 10 of The Voice Australia.
In 2021, he competed in season 10 of The Voice Australia on Jessica Mauboy’s team, turning all four chairs in his blind audition where he performed The Prayer by Andrea Bocelli. That led him to compete as one of the artists at Eurovision: Australia Decides 2022, with his song, My Body.
Plucked from rural New South Wales and raised in the crumbling majesty of Rome, Tanzer delivers culture-clash disco dramarama and hyper-colour haughtiness with a voice from another dimension.
Known for her cinematic, high-glamour, escapist works that are at once intensely powerful, deeply fragile, and darkly humorous, her work spans stages, clubs, galleries, and festivals, and fuses musical forms for a multitude of performative and artistic outcomes.
Her musical compositions move fluidly from opera to disco and from the experimental to pure pop, exploring self-image, gender, romance, and the power of the alter ego.
LAVRENCE, from the queer fringes of Sydney, has arrived.
Growing up in a music-obsessed household, LAVRENCE’s taste for performance was quickly established as he’d race home from school each day to perform to Spice by the Spice Girls (dressing up as either Ginger or Posh). He later honed these skills at a performing arts high school where he studied singing, dancing, and acting.
Bursting onto the scene in late 2018 with his debut single Shine, and accompanied performance at Sydney’s most popular queer event, Heaps Gay, LAVRENCE has become one of Australia’s most exciting rising artists, quickly establishing a reputation for meticulously choreographed and powerful live performances.
Troy has spent the last seven years honing his craft in some of Australia’s most notorious nightclubs, rounding out the set list alongside house and techno royalty at the country's greatest parties and clubs.
Troy kicked off his career at the peak of Sydney’s draconian lockout laws. A classically trained pianist from his school days, Troy has been heavily influenced by the soundtrack of his family’s eclectic taste from a young age.
His now signature sound is a blend of classic house, electro house, and techno, overlaid with unexpected a cappella and a stomping 808 house beat. He was a curator for Arias Great Southern Nights movement and took the stage at Mardi Gras Laneway Party in 2018.
