Danny Widdicombe & Trichotomy
Fresh from their Queensland Music Festival performances, DANNY WIDDICOMBE and TRICHOTOMY are bringing their new LP ‘Between the Lines’ to life in a live performance which launches its international release in The Bunker at the Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 20 July. They will be supported by songbird ANDREA KIRWIN.

Danny Widdicombe wrote the songs for ‘Between the Lines’ during health and relationship crises that reflect both his tenacious and positive attitudes to an all too common affiliation with adversity.

This exciting collaboration between singer / songwriter Danny Widdicombe, and internationally renowned instrumental improvising group Trichotomy (Sean Foran, John Parker and Sam Vincent), is a refreshing confluence of musical styles, portraying both their wealth of experience as musicians and also their deeply diverse influences.

Building up the tradition of such seminal albums as John Martyn’s ‘Solid Air’, JJ Cale’s ‘Naturally’, Nick Drake’s ‘Pink Moon’ and Neil Young’s ‘On the Beach', Between the Lines digs up the roots of music that merged blues, folk, country, rock, jazz and pop.

This exciting new cross-genre collaboration features ARIA nominated Danny Widdicombe (Wilson Pickers), merged with the harmonic and melodic versatility of the award-winning jazz trio, Trichotomy. The distinctive sound of Widdicombe's storytelling compliment Trichotomy's intuitive improvising and creates an engaging blend of sonic tapestries.

Widdicombe's steel string guitar and earthy vocals are the perfect match for the bass, drums and piano of the trio's intimate interplay. Featuring a suite of songs by Widdicombe, and lush improvising from all musicians, the music is a delight for lovers of jazz, folk, country and everything in-between.

DANNY WIDDICOMBE is a Brisbane-based songwriter and musician, who has had three ARIA award nominations with his band The Wilson Pickers, released four albums as a solo artist, overcome leukaemia three times, played lead guitar for the likes of Bernard Fanning and Tim Rogers, and is also an overly enthusiastic amateur astronomer.

TRICHOTOMY are one of Australia’s most inventive contemporary music ensembles. So much more than a traditional jazz trio, this group expands the capacities of the classic piano/bass/drums combination by skillfully blending dense, exciting improvisations and delicate atmospherics, conjuring up sounds of modern jazz, ambient music, avant-garde rock, free improvisation and contemporary classical music. Wonderfully unpredictable and absorbing, dramatic and always distinctive.

ANDREA KIRWIN is an Australian/Fijian singer-songwriter/producer and storyteller. Over the past seven years she has become one of the hardest working performers on the Sunshine Coast music scene 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. Andrea’s greatest musical influences include Tracy Chapman, the Beatles, Norah Jones, Bebél Gilberto and John Mayer.

In 2009, Andrea founded her own independent record label, Peace Run Records, and has released three studio albums; ‘From the Ground Up’ (2013), ‘The Story of Us’ (2015) and ‘A Quiet Revolution’ (2017). She has been a regular performer at festivals around Australia for more than 10 years.
