Leaps and Bounds Music Festival and APRA AMCOS present
The Gasometer Hotel, 484 Smith St in Collingwood over two evenings.
Tuesday 5th July and Tuesday 12th July
The Song and Stories nights offer a genuine insight in to the craft of song writing from 20
different perspectives in various stages of artists’ careers. Some of the participants are
still in high school while others have been writing and performing music for more than
four decades. The focus of the night is essentially is the song-writing process and the
stories that inspired something which then goes on to have a life of its own.
Each evening will features ten songwriters delivering a total of 30 songs over two sets.
Some of the songwriters generally play solo while others will be performing without their
band behind them for the first time. Five musicians will be on stage at the same time,
taking a turn to introduce and play a song in three rounds.
This is the second year that the Songs and Stories series is part of the Leaps and Bounds
Music Festival. The format proved to be popular with both audiences and performers last
year and its return anticipated. Programmed as an early week event on a Tuesday, the art
of listening is not overly commanding, especially when presented with some moving and
entertaining preludes to songs and melodies. A sense of camaraderie also unfolds on
stage between the songwriters during the rounds as anecdotes, heartaches and laughs are
Appearing over the two weeks are the following Melbourne based songwriters who have
a rock, indie, pop, folk, electronic and country musical persuasion including Alice Sky,
Amaya Laucirica, Arun Roberts, Ben Mastwyk, Ben Salter, Bob Harrow, Brooke Russell,
