LIOR – Live in Deni
South West Music proudly presents LIOR – Live in Deni on the evening of Friday, 1 March at the Deniliquin Multi Arts Centre! This performance sees one of Australia’s most successful and respected singer/songwriters performing an intimate concert of songs drawn from his new album – ‘Between You and Me’ as well as selections from his vast back catalogue of recordings.
This is a chance to hear the acclaimed singer songwriter Lior in a manner harking back to archetypal ‘salon’ concerts; where both audience and performer share an evening enjoying the connection that only proximity can offer.
Lior burst on to the Australian music scene in 2005 with his stunning debut album – ‘Autumn Flow’. Recorded and released entirely independently, and spearheaded by ‘This Old Love’ and subsequent singles ‘Daniel’ and ‘Autumn Flow’, the album became one of the most successful independent debuts in Australian history.
A swag of accolades followed, amongst them three Aria nominations (including Best Male Artist), as well as Triple J’s prestigious ‘J Award’ nomination for Album of the Year. Subsequent releases ‘Corner of an Endless Road’, (2008) and ‘Tumbling into the Dawn’ (2010) were also a huge success, debuting at #2 on the Australian Albums chart and topping the Independent charts for several weeks, as well as earning the gifted songwriter a further three Aria nominations.
Lior is known for his dynamic and moving performances, and has earned a reputation as one of Australia’s finest live performers. He is part of a rare breed of artists that has achieved a great degree of success and critical acclaim, whilst maintaining an independence and individuality in their craft.
Don’t miss the chance to see him in this one-off intimate solo show. Purchase your tickets here …
