Renee Geyer The Story Aust Soul

Filed under: Festivals & Major Events — site admin @ 6:23 pm

Renée Geyer and an all-star cast of Victoria’s finest musicians told the story of Australian soul to a near capacity crowd last night at the inaugural The Age Music Victoria Awards at Billboard, with Renée playing a 45 minute set of her greatest hits and delivering a passionate rendition of ‘It’s a Man’s Man’s World.’
A thrilled Geyer said, “This award means so much - it is a career-topping milestone and I’m thrilled to be the first female solo inductee to The Age Music Victoria Hall Of Fame.”
Nominees for Best Album, Big Scary, opened the night with a 30 minute set, warming the crowd up with their stunning psychedelic pop sound. Other highlights of the night included 2013’s Best Soul, Funk, R’n’B and Gospel Album Genre Award winner Kylie Auldist and Lance Ferguson together on ‘Stares and Whispers’; Linda Bull covering Paul Kelly’s ‘Sure Got Me’, and a stunning duet from Saskwatch vocalist Nkechi and Henry Wagons. The EG Allstars rocked steadily along with special guest vocalists Dan Sultan, Daniel Merriweather, Remi Kolawole, Talei Wolfgramm and Ella Thompson, and Archie Roach’s ‘Heal The People’ brought the house down.
This year The Drones won big twice, capturing City of Melbourne award for Best Band as well as the RocKwiz award for Best Live Band; and Paul Kelly also bagged two trophies with The Age EG Best Album for his ‘Spring and Fall’ album, and Select AV’s Best Male Artist Award.
