Felicity and Josh celebrate new album

Singer-songwriter Felicity Urquhart is set take to the stage with Josh Cunningham.

Singer-songwriter Felicity Urquhart will soon take to the stage with Josh Cunningham in The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi.

The event on Friday 28 May is set to be a super special night, as they celebrate their new album ‘The Song Club’.

Felicity Urquhart has long been one of the best-loved and most decorated country singer-songwriters in Australian song, while Josh is renowned as a member of the beloved and multi award-winning folk-rock trio The Waifs.

Both have both enjoyed lengthy, successful, enduring musical careers.

A collective haul of Golden Guitars, ARIA Awards, multi-platinum album sales and extensive touring over nearly three decades forms a body of work that serves as a ready definition of success.

In January 2020, Felicity and Josh were invited to join Song Club – a creative collective that tasked members with writing a song a week.

This challenge gave the pair a lifeline to creativity and community as well as an abundance of new material, enough in fact to make a whole album. The album is titled ‘The Song Club’ and will be out 7 May via ABC Music.

So, from a year that many would have gladly sent back for a refund, a joy bringing, spirit-lifting collection of songs emerged – as a reminder that even in the darkest of times, the light of music and love can never be extinguished.

Long-time admirers from afar of each other’s work, the pair consider it an honour to be creating music together.

“To harness our collective passion for story and song and get to tell our own story in the most personal way through the most personal medium we know is truly inspiring,“ Josh said.

“I can’t think of a time when I’ve felt such a need for the healing force of music,“ he said.

“The world seems to be groaning under the burden of upheaval on many fronts and while music doesn’t make hard realities disappear, it certainly softens them and provides an opportunity for folks to celebrate and come together.

“In the face of all that’s wrong in the world, music will always be right.”
