Soulful and honest, STAV (Stav Shaul) writes thoughtful, uplifting songs in English, French and Hebrew with bursts of rhythmic fire. Contemporary folk and a hint of something else, she has a compelling ability to tell a story in song. Tears and laughter are the main ingredients in her songwriting process. An expressive voice and a natural affinity for guitar, live performance brings this songwriter’s introspection, playfulness and raw passion to life.
Corey Theatre is an Indigenous singer-songwriter who calls Adelaide home. Hailing from Western Victoria, the Gunditjmara-Belgian artist’s music conveys a sense of country and place. Drawing on community knowledge and historical documents, Corey is using his music as medium to revive the Gunditjmara language, a tongue that has not been spoken fluently for close to a hundred years. His music is timely and profound, curious and playful: it keeps love at the core of its message and always advocates the merits of taking a laidback approach to life.
STAV and Corey will perform individually and then join each other on stage for a shared song or two exploring their cultural and artistic experiences in contemporary Australia.
