The Milk Factory says
Alias Tones is proud to present local acoustic Fugitive and the Vagabond, performing on 11/2/2016 at 8pm. The performance, supported by Winter Solstice and John Cole will be held at the Milk Factory, Brisbane.

Inspired by the everyday lives of people and the world we live in, Fugitive and the Vagabond takes you on a journey down the road of hard times and the strength of the human soul to endure. Influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Nick Cave and the Avett Brothers, this Brisbane based group has had a string of successful gigs in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast and have recently recorded their first studio recording titled ‘the Lonesome’ at James North Productions in Brisbane and are currently on the triple j unearthed charts. Singer, songwriter and guitarist Jordan Merrick, who refers to himself as the Fugitive, is always looking for new ways to evolve his sound and has recently been joined by Sam Hattersley, who brings another dimension to the group with his melodic guitar melodies and complimentary vocal harmonies. Jordan started out writing short stories when he was young so the transition to song writing was a natural progression and the inspiration for those stories are shown so well in his lyrics and vocal melodies. The mostly laid back tune of the songs provide a perfect platform for the listener to be captivated the same way a good book does to a reader.

Winter Solstice are a five piece Alt-folk act hailing from Brisbane, who combine their penchant for story telling with pastoral harmonies and moody undertones. Formed in 2010, they released their debut EP and began gigging in Brisbane, and the next few years saw them playing on festival line-ups alongside Matt Corby and Last Dinosaurs, and supporting renowned local acts such as Inland Sea and The Mouldy Lovers. After a short tour up the east coast to Cairns, Winter Solstice started working on new music, a process which saw them reinvent themselves with an altered line-up and a matured sound. Fast forward to the present day and they are finally gearing up to release a new EP in early 2016. Their first offering ‘Riverbend’ is already making an impression with an exciting taste of what’s to come.
