Singular Voices: Amanda Brown's 'Eight Guitars'

When

Friday 30 June 2023 from 8pm to 10:30pm

Songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist Amanda Brown of the legendary Go-Betweens enlists some of Australia’s most talented artists to help bring together a live performance of her debut solo record Eight Guitars, 20 years in the making. Unifying the songs through one instrument, and with each track featuring a different guest guitarist drawn from a pool of regular collaborators and friends, expect a venerable who’s who of music industry icons to take the stage.

Before turning to composition, Amanda Brown built a noteworthy career as a multi- instrumentalist in several bands, including The Go-Betweens, with whom she recorded Tallulah and 16 Lovers Lane. Outside of her own projects, Brown has also recorded and performed with a wide range of artists including REM, Silverchair, The Church and David Bridie. In 2000, Amanda Brown began working as a composer, with her imaginative, emotional and heartfelt style affording her the ability to work across TV and movies, with credits that include the award-winning Babyteeth, Brazen Hussies and The Secrets She Keeps.
