Liz Stringer

Liz Stringer, AUS

Melbourne’s Liz Stringer is one of Australia’s most respected and versatile songwriters and musicians, recently completing a year on the road, both in Australia and internationally, in support of her acclaimed 2016 LP “All The Bridges”. Recorded in Portland, Oregon, USA at Type Foundry Studio, and released independently in Australia and in North America through Toronto’s Roaring Girl Records,  “All The Bridges” has continued to solidify Stringer’s reputation for the highest quality musicianship, creative autonomy and intensely moving live shows.

A passionate advocate of independent music and extensive regional touring, Liz has become a favourite among punters across Australia for her generous and engaging stage demeanour and her skill as a storyteller. Her powerful and emotive live performances and melodically rich, story based songs have delighted audiences and festival goers around the country on national tours with the likes of The Waifs, Eric Bibb, Mia Dyson, Ron Sexsmith and The East Pointers.


“I am a big fan of Liz Stringer – and you can tell her that!” – Bonnie Raitt

“‘All the Bridges’…gives us the most imposing distillation of Stringer yet… transcending the influences of individual producers, musicians and genres” – Martin Jones, Rhythms Magazine

“In anybody’s language, Liz Stringer is a star.”  – Jeff Jenkins, HOWZAT

Vance Gilbert

Vance Gilbert, USA

Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90’s when the buzz started spreading in the folk clubs of Boston about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking ’em dead at open mics. Word of the Philadelphia-area bred performer quickly spread to New York City. Then Shawn Colvin invited him to be a special guest on her Fat City national tour. Vance Gilbert took audiences across the country by storm.

Ten accomplished albums later, Vance continues to refine his unlikely union of humour, virtuosity and the unexpected. Whether with classic, original songwriting or ageless interpretations of covers, his is a presentation steeped in deep humanism and bravery, stunning artistry and soul, and contagious, unbridled joy – inarguably the blue ribbons that tie and seal the seemingly impossible package that is… VANCE GILBERT.



“Gilbert took the stage, accompanied only by an acoustic guitar, a whimsical sense of humour and an astonishly smooth, pure tenor voice. But that proved to be more than enough.”
– The Chicago Tribune

“….the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil and the guitar playing of a god…”
– Fort Worth Star-Telegram
