Event description

Description

Honest, traditional Australian roots.

Morningside Fats is an Australian blues artist whose original songs have appeared on film and television and at the top of the Australian Blues charts.

This journeyman bluesman has been one of South East Qld’s hardest working acts since anyone cares to remember. Performing at most of the East Coast festivals and blues venues as a sideman for other artists, as a soloist, in his duo or as part of his extended Morningside Fats band this guy has played on bills with or supported a veritable who’s who of Australian and visiting overseas blues acts.

Fats sees the blues as an always evolving and challenging music form upon which to write his original tales of heartache, struggle, and resilience. He has found that in recent years the message in the songs has really struck a chord with contemporary audiences. It seems that audiences would agree with Fats playing to wrapt packed crowds at the 2018 Australian Blues Music Festival.

Vintage fingerstyle guitar picking, sweet resonator slide and a voice that you know is singing the truth. Morningside Fats makes the blues mean something again.

The Morningside Fats Band’s fifth collection of original blues tunes, Lies Damn Lies and the Blues was released in late 2017. By January 2018 it was number one on the national ABARAC chart.

In solo mode Fats is more intimate. Not only do you get the story in the songs, but you also get the stories behind the stories as he introduces each song. There is a lot more resonator slide playing than in band gigs and you may even be treated to some blues harmonica playing. All in all the solo show is more down home and genuine in its bluesiness than the band show.

MORNINGSIDE FATS will be supported by Taleena Peck

Taleena began creating songs as soon as she discovered that music was just another language, and as her understanding of syntax developed, so too did her music.

Raised in a family of music enthusiasts, Taleena quickly became enthralled by music and performing. Her musical influences range from the likes of Johnny Cash and June Carter to Shania Twain and the Dixie Chicks.

Taleena's reputation for writing authentic and unapologetic lyrics makes for a captivating performance, every time.

As a songwriter, Taleena has a tendency to write songs that are brutally honest and reflective of her life as a young musician, which is evident in her debut single, 'Shouldn't Be Here' - out now.

'Shouldn't Be Here' is Taleena's introduction to the music industry. Laced with sultry lyrics, drum loops and even a banjo track, Taleena has admitted that releasing this song was a risk, both professionally and personally.

Having played on the same line up as The Black Sorrows, the Hoodoo Gurus and Adam Brand, Taleena's career is only beginning.

"The only thing in my life that I have ever been sure of is music, and I cannot wait to see where that takes me."
