Opening Solo Set

Chloe Gill - Singer/Songwriter

Chloe Gill, 17, is an aspiring alternative contemporary Singer, Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Newcastle, Australia. Her songwriting takes inspiration from art, pieces of music, nature and other people’s words. Her music emotionally explores a lot, and she hopes people find a deeper meaning in her lyrics and connect them to their experiences and lives.

Chloe likes to think she has created her own genre, somewhere between contemporary and indie rock. Listeners will find hints of jazz chords, scatting and unpredictable melodies entwined in her music. Her inspiration is drawn from the likes of Joni Mitchell, Elton John and Missy Higgins.

Adam Miller Trio  

Thursday 20 January 

5pm – 8pm  |  Museum Park

Newcastle guitarist Adam Miller's music is groovy and approachable, whilst having a melodic sophistication that only comes from years of cross genre hopping. His inclusion of complex rhythms and dissonant haunting phrases, combined with breathtaking riffs and melodies are his signature. His jazz influenced style with finger-picking mastery creates a improvisation filled live performance that is beautifully unpredictable. This has seen him share stages with Les Paul, Tommy Emmanuel, Matt Schofield, Russell Morris, Charlie Hunter, Adam Levy, Ariel Posen, Tony McManus, Ben Gillies (Silverchair), and the list continues....

Miller has had a relentless international touring schedule the past few years which has seen him perform in the USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Japan & Australia.

He released his latest album, Unify, on August 7, 2020. Recorded in Los Angeles in December of 2019, Unify features prominent LA musicians with bassist Joel Gottschalk and drummer Justin Glasco. Composed entirely by Miller, these songs are born from the adventure of settling not only into a new city, but a new country, drawing from both the incredible highs and the seemingly mundane. The album is equally influenced by the Los Angeles jazz scene and the Australian pub rock scene of Miller's hometown, Newcastle.
