Since forming in 2006, Julz Parker and Leesa Gentz have forged their own, very unique way into the global music scene.Their influences are drawn from family record collections of old skool blues and country, and from their travels, combining a distinctly Australian roots edge with european gypsy guitar, arabic rhythms and optimistic social commentaries. The Hussies have been welcomed with honorary memberships into blues, folk, country and jazz circles, spreading their good vibes across festival stages and venues throughout Europe, America and Australia, with the single goal of playing music for the absolute joy of it. Their latest release ‘The London Sessions’ winning NCEIA album of the year, the first single making it to #2 in the national Airit radio charts (behind the Cat Empire) and 3 songs making the finals of the National Musicoz Awards. They have been touring constantly and playing festivals and venues all over the world including:Beijing Midi Festival (China), Marienplatz Festival, Stuttgart (Germany), Dubai Original Music Festival, UAE Memorial Unleashed, (Florida), Hangout Festival, (Alabama), Madame Guitar Festival, Tricesimo (Italy) Alcamo Blues Festival, (Sicily), Byron Bay Bluesfest, NSW, Falls Festival, NSW Port Fairy Folk Festival, Gympie Muster, QLD and many many more.
“Watching Julz Parker play her custom-made acoustic dreadnought is nothing short of breath-taking; a stark reminder of the huge gap between simply ‘playing guitar’ and the ability to make an instrument the extension of your musical imagination.” – Sabian Wilde, X Press Magazine
Born and raised in the North of England, Chris’s songs are forged beneath the landscape of the bridges and shipyards of working class Newcastle. His ingenious guitar style melds open tunings with rhythmical bass lines where he wrenches the tuning pegs up and down mid song all the while fingering complex chords at lighting speed. Chris’s soulful breathy voice reminisces his love of old English folk singers such as John Martyn and Sandy Denny against his own contemporary alternative folk sound, giving us an insight of his past and his very bright future.
She is currently in year 12 at Barrenjoey high school and usually performs sets with just acoustic guitar and vocals although she also plays piano and flute in the symphonic wind ensemble. Her usual style is mostly acoustic indie and folk but she also enjoys writing her own music which is a mixture of both these genres.
$20 per person (children under 16 are $10)
