Southern Comfort is presenting Southern Sounds, a string of curated nights inspired by the spirit of New Orleans – set to descend upon some of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane’s most celebrated venues throughout summer – kicking off in January 2018. Southern Comfort have handpicked some of their favourite Australian performers to celebrate the diverse and thriving culture of New Orleans, a city built on a love of live music and shared experience.
One of Australia’s most diverse musical acts Joyride will wrap the Southern Sounds tour in Brisbane at The Foundry on Thursday February 1, bringing with him his rising calibre of contemporary rap, rhythm, RnB and hip hop beats. The pioneering producer, DJ, singer & rapper has contributed in carving out Australia’s growing hip hop scene, as part of One Day (with Horrorshow, Jackie Onassis and Spit Syndicate) alongside his solo career. Also performing will be one of Brisbane’s finest in Tiana Khasi, bringing her smooth soul and jazz inflections to the evening, with highly sought after DJ and writer FlexMami, opening the night with her ultimate, handpicked narrative of tunes ranging the funk, hip hop and RnB spectrum, celebrating the southern culture.
Entry to the Southern Sounds shows is on Southern Comfort, with a first come, first serve policy; so be sure to get down early.
