Live in the Lyre

To celebrate the opening of our upstairs theatre space, The Lyre Room we have put together a weekend of live music and sound experiences featuring local musicians of legendary status.

Live in the Lyre ~ a local line up that is music to our ears, will pluck our heart strings & rock our socks off.

Fri July 30 - Sun Aug 1 | The Lyre Room

Live in the Lyre

Carolyn Oates | Khristian Mizzi

Fri 30 July 7.30pm | The Lyre Room

Carolyn Oates

Roots/pop artist, Carolyn Oates mixes jaw dropping guitar work with heartfelt songs that speak to the human condition. Known for her staggering array of guitar chord voicings, she adds to this a fine mastery of the lyric form, creating beautiful stories. "Unique" is a word that genuinely describes what Carolyn Oates is doing. With vocal stylings of Suzanne Vega, she combines the adventurous guitar tunings of Joni Mitchell with the dexterity of Paul Simon.

Khristian Mizzi

With a ‘strong and gentle’ voice, and an art for weaving beauty and truth into the words of each song, Khristian Mizzi reaches the hearts of his audiences with performances that are joyful, uplifting, confronting, spiritual, comedic and vulnerable all at once.

Having been crowned the winner of Melbourne label, Pieater’s ‘Pie School’ competition in late 2019, Bec has recently been in the studio with Tom Iansek (Big Scary, #1 Dads, Airling) to record her first single, 'Edithvale'.

Daisy West play music that has deep musical substance, their sound is based on the essential elements of great songwriting and long honed, tasteful musicianship.

Live in the Lyre

Grand Baxter | Clint Wilson

Sun 1 Aug 3.00pm | The Lyre Room

Grand Baxter

Grand Baxter is the introspective folk project of Melbourne singer-songwriter Ben Langdon (The Bean Project). With artists such as Jason Isbell, Dawes, James Taylor and Paul Simon in his easel, he paints vivid pictures of social anxiety, deep depression, interpersonal struggles and growing older. This project captures the darker, more candid part of Langdon’s songwriting soul.

Clint Wilson

Melbournian Singer/ Songwriter Clint Wilson possesses that rare and special something in his songwriting, that makes his fans instantly connect to his story. Justifiably compared to the likes of Paul Kelly and Crowded House, Clint’s nostalgic Folk, Alt-Country music is an enjoyable amble through the tradition of storytelling in song..
