Fetherstone + Steph Russell + Future Shock – Triple Bill

past event


Jazz, pop, folk , funk

Fetherstone combines jazz, pop, folk and electronica to showcase a very personal, modern expression of her luscious songwriting and sublime vocals. Working as a seasoned jazz vocalist and composer in Australia since 2009, Briana Cowlishaw moved to the UK in 2015 where she started a new musical adventure; Fetherstone. The project is named after Bri’s grandmother (Edith Featherstone/Cowlishaw), a renowned printmaker in Australia, and is what Bri channels all her creative energy through; songwriting, painting, performing and creative play. Fetherstone’s debut EP was produced by UK’s Harry Tarlton (Union J, WarnerUK), followed by 3 singles released between 2018 and 2020, and she is now about to release her first self produced body of work in mid 2023. Performances in Brighton, London, Sydney, Melbourne, Prague and Brno have seen Fetherstone utilise a 5 channel vocal loop pedal and beats machine to craft stunning vocal arrangements of her songs, as well as acapella arrangements of covers from her artistic role models, such as Madison Cunningham, Phoebe Bridges, Tom Misch, Lianne La Havas, Emily King, Bon Iver and Joni Mitchell. This show features her live band, with a sound that fuses her love of folky guitar, her jazz roots, and electro pop influences from London. Briana Cowlishaw (vocals, guitar, loop pedal), Gavin Ahearn (piano/keys), Yutaro Okuda (guitars), Jeremy Badcock (synth/bass) and Nic Cecire (drums).
Steph Russell is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Newcastle. She’s a graduate from the jazz course at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and was the recipient of the 2018 Generations In Jazz Vocal Scholarship. Her music is a ‘Stephified’ brew of future soul, funk and contemporary jazz. Steph released her debut album ‘In The Water’ in 2019 and is releasing her new album later this year. She has the pleasure of playing with some of her favourite Sydney musos; Matt Thomson (keys), Felix Lalanne (guitar), Casey Allan (bass), Ryan Mooney (drums) and Ned Olive (sax).

Future Shock draws inspiration from the early jazz/funk greats of the 70’s, the likes of Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Curtis Mayfield, Weather report and John Scofield to name a few. With an impressive lineup of Sydney’s most accomplished players, their aim is to bring the funk with unique originals and inspiring improvisation.
