Kristy Apps At The Milk Factory W/ Brad Butcher & June Low says
This May 7 West End’s Milk Factory is playing host to three of Brisbane’s best folk / nu-country / roots singer-songwriters, with dirty folk artist Kristy Apps, country-man Brad Butcher and indie goddess June Lowe taking the stage.

This show is the first time these three celebrated artists have been on the same bill and it’s an opportunity not to be missed.

Fresh from her third full-length album tour and release and her solo performances in the nationally acclaimed “Soldier’s Wife” shows, Kristy Apps is ready to reclaim her band.

“I loved working with some of our nation’s best performers, as well as performing solo for these shows. Selling out Sydney’s Opera House was more than I could have anticipated. I’ve been writing a heap of new music and am more than ready to try out our new material with my band, The Shotgun Shirleys.”

Kristy’s lineup includes honorary Shirley, Geoff Green on drums, for this their first full band show of the year.

Brad Butcher’s song writing has been described as a mix of working class grit not too far removed from Springsteen, with the tender expression of Ray LaMontagne. In 2012, he released his well-received self-titled debut album earning him nominations for a variety of Australian and international song writing and artist development awards. As if that wasn’t enough, he also scored top-of-the-line support and guest appearances alongside Busby Marou, Bill Chambers, Mark Seymour and Pete Murray.

June Low is the project of Brisbane-based singer-songwriter Emma White, who has played her brand of indie-folk around Brisbane for more than 15 years. An eclectic mix of folk, roots, rock and indie-pop, White combines rawness with a translucent beauty not often seen in the scene. A stirring voice, distinctive lyrics and a strong sense of adventure in her guitar playing, White’s June Low is meditative, unexpected and confronting.

Doors open at 7.30pm, tix $15 on the door
