Singular Voices: An Evening With Marlon Williams

past event

Description

New Zealand’s Marlon Williams possesses one of the greatest voices of his generation. His effortlessly distinctive tone and heartstring-plucking vibrato have garnered widespread love around the world.

Williams draws on folk and country traditions – often compared to Leonard Cohen, Roy Orbison and Elvis – but what makes Williams so special is his unique ability to traverse genres on both his award-winning records, and in his famously captivating live shows. It has led Williams around the world in recent years, appearing on Conan, Jools Holland, a film role in A Star Is Born, tours with Bruce Springsteen, Eagles and Florence + The Machine, and duets with Lorde, Courtney Barnett, and Brandi Carlile.

An Evening With… is Williams first Australian solo tour in nearly 10 years, and it captures his most loved songs, new material, and both original and traditional Māori Waiata. A once-in-a-generation talent with a voice that crosses continents.

“Williams’ new album probably establishes him as the most commandingly stylish male singer-songwriter since the gruffer Father John Misty.” – Rolling Stone

“Marlon Williams has a voice that’s always a surprise when it arrives. […] It’s the way he sings, which is so completely at ease, yet in total thrall to the lyric, that makes his audience hold its breath to better absorb each note.” – NZ Herald

“His voice soars so gallantly into the rafters that he can’t be easily ignored. He channels old school country music with pure authenticity and a voice that is sometimes reminiscent of Jeff Buckley’s.” – Under the Radar Mag
