High energy duo This Way North will be taking to the stage in The Bunker at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 20 April, supported by songbird Andrea Kirwin.
Recently taking out Best Regional – Outer Suburban Act 2018 at The Age Music Victoria Awards, This Way North are on a steady incline.
It’s easy to forget they are just a two-piece band. Drummer/vocalist Cat Leahy and guitarist/vocalist Leisha Jungalwalla create an explosive energy and expansive sound that translates effortlessly from the studio to the stage.
Hailing from regional Victoria, This Way North recorded their latest offering of tracks in Toronto with Canadian producer Derek Downham (Eagles of Death Metal, Broken Social Scene). ‘EP Vol. 2’ is a six-song collection that showcases the band’s evolution from the rootsy rock of 2016’s EP Vol. 1, to a new realm of luscious, groove-laden alt-pop and synth-rock.Andrea Kirwin is an Australian-Fijian singer-songwriter who has become one of the hardest working performers on the Sunshine Coast music scene over the past eight years along with her talented band of gentle men, Mitch Francis on drums, OJ Newcomb on bass and Brodie Graham on electric guitar.
Andrea’s original music is an earthy blend of folk, roots, hip hop, funk, reggae and soul and is born from love and her desire to understand humanity. Her signature voice can be both honey toned, calming and a balm to the soul, and at other times a bluesy soulful gospel wail that can bring the house down.In 2009, Andrea founded her own independent record label, Peace Run Records, and has released 3 full length studio albums.
