GIG - Glory B Single Launch + Eastward - Saturday, 18 September 2021 - 8pm-11pm
Progressive soul band Glory B release their first single 'It's Alright' from their upcoming fourth album 'Arsenic & Gold’. Produced by Nick Edin at the legendary Aviary Studios.
Glory B infuse elements of jazz, blues, bossanova and rock into their original sound, built around upright pianos and vintage keyboards of the 70’s. The music is characterised by emotional intensity and lyrical wit, inspired by diverse and eclectic influences. Led by pianist, vocalist and songwriter Bryson Mulholland, the line-up is completed by drummer Daniel Brates and bassist Mimmo Panunzio.
Formed in 2005 in the deep jungles of Goonengerry, NSW, they relocated to Melbourne in 2009. Their 2012 parody hit, 'Sex Party' caused quite a stir, with over 125,000 views on YouTube. They have played recently at the Mornington Music, Waterfront and Queenscliff Music festivals.
Bryson's body of work includes musical contributions for artists including Tex Perkins, Spoonbill, Ghost Mountain, The Re-Mains, The Witness and CBD Dub. He also works as a successful children's entertainer in the kids' comedy percussion group The Bongo Brothers.
Also performing on the night is Melbourne electronic producer Eden Altman aka Eastward. Eastward operates out of a highly individualised Melbourne based home studio. For the better part of two decades, Altman has collected rare and vintage synthesisers and possesses an unhealthy collection of high-end guitars and basses. Eastward’s organic touch is rich with vinyl-esq beats, percussion, acoustic guitar and funky bass. Throughout his music, Eastward often opens up a portal to a psychedelic web of retro-future collage that gently blends the foreign with the familiar. As per his pseudonym, Eastward persuades his listeners to embark on a journey, and that journey seems to go where the sun rises; east.
