A few weeks ago we found ourselves at The Toff throwing back a few beers and enjoying the beautiful sounds of Georgia Fields, Second Hand Heart and Paperhouse - all as part of Melbourne Music Week.
The evening was the collaboration of original music with string infused sounds from players from from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Totally cool.
The intimate crowd sat at candlelit tables around the room and enjoyed lyrical and atmospheric sets from each artist. On a personal level, it was nice to be sitting down after a busy day out and kicking back to light sounding music from multi-talented MELBOURNE musicians!
Georgia Fields dazzled the crowd in a sleek white dress by Alpha60 and her chirpy original tunes and quirky nature did that also. Her pop-filled songs were complimented beautifully by string undertone..perfect for a Sunday! It's truly nice to see an artist who's honesty and playfulness is evident through their art - you get a real impression that 'what you see is what you get' with Georgia!
The graphics of the performace are worth a special mention too! A shot of Georgia was posted in mirror-image on the wall behind her as she performed. I guess going off to a gig these days has to be as visual as it is sounding to keep a crowd engaged. It was a nice 'icing' on the performance cake and definitely added some extra ambience to the room....
