Balloon Machine presents Natalie Evans w/ Bonniesongs + Tea Leaf.

Please note this is an 18+ event

Our series of specially curated evenings continues with art-folk virtuoso Natalie Evans, the incredible, inimitable Bonniesongs and the beautifully melancholic Tea Leaf

Natalie Evans

Fusing a virtuosic talent on guitar, harp and piano with a distinctive playing style and finely tuned songwriting sensibilities, Kent-born Londoner Natalie Evans’s music glows with a rare self-contained grace, as she wraps her minimalist and deceptively simple lyrical lines in winning hooks and harmonies.

Bonnie’s sweet ethereal vocals sail over the polyrhythmic backgrounds created between her guitar, percussion and vocal loops. Her imaginative lyrics tell stories of treehouses, mice, birds, flying and video games.Described as “dreamy experimental indie folk” and compared to artists such as Bjork and Joanna Newsom, Bonniesongs is creating a unique sound in the Sydney songwriting scene.

Tea Leaf.

Intimate and emotive acoustic indie storytelling with clarity, depth and nuance from Leeds-based singer/songwriter. With stark poetic imagery chronicling depression in a minor key, Tea Leaf refracts the confessional lyricism of John K. Samson through a melancholic northern lens.
