The Punch Sessions was created by Phil Punch of Electric Avenue Studios, and Paula Punch with their music friends, to showcase local singer-songwriters and musicians for an evening of beautiful tunes and entertainment. This session includes:
Paula Punch has recently returned from touring the Californian West Coast and Nashville! The band includes Robin Gist on guitars, and Marko Simec ( Waiting for Guiness, Soul Movers and Rufino and the Coconuts) on keyboards plus other friends. Her music is hard to define – but indie folk is probably closest.
Jason Walker is well known in the live alt-country music scene with his deep and distinctive voice, and his strikingly beautiful pedal steel guitar and mandolin.
Lisa Schouw, an ARIA nominated Australian singer/songwriter, interprets an intoxicating blend of songs from the distant past and the near future that speak of the tender borderlands that lie between lovers meeting for the first or last time. Moving effortlessly from pop to jazz to folk and beyond Schouw leaves her audience wondering, “where the hell that voice was coming from. There was a quality to it that was sublime” (Ella James, 2UE).
Bleeding Gums Murphy like mashing up songs and sticking them back together, paper-mache style! This duo, with Reuben Ryan and Elliot Peck, have been entertaining local audiences with their unique fun style of music.
