After a fantastic kick-off event on Sunday 24th November, Eumundi Live has a delectable menu of fine musical grooves planned for our New Year’s eve lead-up gig on December 29!
Headlining are The Trouble With Templeton, who’s new album, ROOKIE has become one of this year’s most critically acclaimed releases. Picking up from the Qld Music Award’s Rock Song of the Year and just back from a sell out national tour, the band also appeared on triple j’s Like a Version, resulting in more than 30,000 views.
Brisbane’s Courier Mail announced it Album of the Week along with Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, Time Off and more… with the band’s songwriter Thomas Calder picking up an APRA PDA Award. ROOKIE marks the arrival of a band truly comfortable in their own skin. Unncompromising and uniquely Templeton – a band passionate about only creating music they truly believe in.
Principal support for TTWT are Gympie sensations Red Beard… a pop, punk and dance set to get you up and grooving. Having toured the east coast of Australia a bunch of times as well as New Zealand, they’ve garnered a ton of radio play on over 30 radio stations and received reviews from the mighty Triple J and various other credible media. And, it’s all encapsulated in their just released a new single ‘One Love’… “If you have a dream, don’t stop chasing it, no matter how impossible the odds. Appreciate yourself so you can appreciate others, better yourself so you can better others, but most of all love yourself so that you can love others! ONE LOVE!” We’re pumped. Here’s a taste.
Also on the bill are stunning Sunny Coast outfit Soula… After forming in Septermber 2011, Soula are quickly becoming a reason to get out of the house and delve into the local music scene. A seamless mix of edgy riffs and melodic funk/rock, Soula’s attention to detail and emphasis on bringing back the lost art of real music is quickly turning them into one of the best live music groups on the Sunshine Coast. Check out their fantastic and infectious new cut ‘Over Our Head’ reaching 14,000 Youtube views after just two weeks…
Completing our line-up for this fabulous feast of pop, funk, dance and rock on Sunday 29th December is Eden Mulholland. Former writer and frontman of popular NZ group Motocade, with singles reaching the top 20 and featured in major Hollywood films, festival appearances at The Big Day out, Homegrown and CMJ and a reputation for electrifying live performances, Eden’s Solo music also packs a massive punch. An acclaimed and highly respected theatre composer, Eden’s music traverses genres and taps into more experimental and dramatic sources of inspiration. The results of which are utterly compelling. Mulholland is currently promoting his debut solo album FEED THE BEAST, which is gaining notoriety as an epic soundscape where you can expect the unexpected. The album was recorded and mixed by Neil Baldock (Crowded House, Sarah Blasko) and has received a tip of the hat from triple j.
