Charlie Mayfair

Charlie Mayfair

Brisbane’s best looking band Charlie Mayfair will be back in Sydney this month, playing a string of shows at the Oxford Arts Factory. Tim and I spent the night there last Friday and were blown away with their live performance. The devilishly talented sextet exudes enthusiasm on stage as they belt out tracks from their EP, Watch my Hands. Wonderful harmonies, wickedly entwined with wistful lyrics counterpart the more upbeat moments when drum sticks and mayhem are shared as the band go a little bit nuts in the name of a song.

They recently played Sunset Sounds and you’ll find them at the Oxford Arts Factory every Friday for a month, for free. You’ve missed one, make sure you make it to one of the next three. They’re supporting Sydney’s songsters Phatchance and Coptic Soldier and they’re not afraid to get onstage and join their fellow bandmates, mixing it up for a little hip hop.

Hooray, finally a band who are not only talented, they’re also really likeable. So much so they’re on the show this coming Saturday 19th Feb, come down to the Cafe and watch for yourself or listen online and on 88fm across the Bondi beach area.

See you there xxx

The very first Polyphonic Three kicks off with local hero and friend of the show John Vella.

John is a Sydney born and bred singer/songwriter. Performing on stage with his band, their sound is characterised by depth, lyrical story-telling, and intelligent composition & arrangement. John is a firm believer in the groove and spreads his vibe light the sun spreads its warmth. Key influences can be found in John Mayer and Ryan Adams. Recently supported Thirsty Merc @ the Metro.

Next up are Babe Shadow.  Floating on a summer’s breeze of good vibration moonshine, NME declared them as ‘an Arcadian beat-combo for our time’ and has featured heavily in press and on their blogs. We think they’re the breakthrough band to watch this year. With good management behind them and a string of high profile support acts including festivals and Florence & the Machine. They make a jubilant and lovelorn guitar-twanging type of pop music, for steamy nights with romancers and dancers.

Lastly we had Johnson-Jay who we didn’t know too much about. But it was our first show, and we liked his music so we gave it a whirl. It went well. Let us your thoughts, we’re new and would love some feedback! xxx
