Sydney singer/songwriter Jesse Younan passed away on 22 July 2008 after a short battle with leukaemia after just finishing his fourth studio album ‘A Good Day for a Migraine’.
The album received outstanding critical acclaim and an ever increasing number of fans who have been deeply moved by Jesse’s unique, beautiful singing and masterful song writing.
The night promises to be a moving and powerful celebration of a exceptionally talented musician who used the magic of words and music to cope with life’s struggles.
To mark the 10 year anniversary, a special posthumous double-album of Jesse’s incredible demos and home-recordings entitled ‘Fragments’ has been carefully compiled and will be available officially at the Show.
“There is no softness in a Jesse Younan song but there is much tenderness. By that I mean that he doesn’t avert his eyes, or yours, from harshness lived or observed … Astonishingly good.” – Bernard Zuel (SMH)
This show WILL SELL OUT as it does each year. Get in early and DON’T MISS OUT. All proceeds go the Leukaemia Foundation.
