Oh Pep!: 7pm
Martha Wainwright: 8pm
Canadian folk-pop singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright makes her Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ debut to close the 2017 series, with support from Melbourne duo Oh Pep!
With an undeniable voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha Wainwright is a beguiling performer and a refreshingly different force in music. Throughout her career spanning two decades, she has shown great musical maturity and talent as a songwriter, performing sold out shows across several continents, and stunning audiences with her incredible range and ability. Martha Wainwright will bring her timeless hits from the past 20 years to the Twilight stage, along with material from her upcoming fourth studio album. Goodnight City (November 2016) is poised to be her best record yet, returning to the rawness of her critically and commercially successful debut LP.
Australian folk/pop band Oh Pep! were drawn together by a shared love of songs with no boundaries or expectations. The duo have finally unveiled their long-awaited debut album Stadium Cake (2016), which truly showcases their uniquely compelling collaboration. It was released in June to positive reviews with The Brag asserting Stadium Cake is “hauntingly beautiful yet powerful…consistently original and catchy.”
