A real mix of musical genres with Paula Punch, Lisa Schouw, and Bleeding Gums Murphy.
The Punch Sessions was created by Phil Punch of Electric Avenue Studios, and Paula Punch with their music friends, to showcase local singer-songwriters and musicians for an evening of beautiful tunes and entertainment. This session includes:
Paula Punch who has recently returned from touring the Californian West Coast and Nashville with fellow singer-songwriter Jackie Bristow, and has just released her first album produced by Robin Gist (Girl Overboard). The band includes Robin Gist on guitars, Catherine Golden (Bonnie Kay and the Bonafides & The Honey Bogans) on Double Bass, and Tim O’Driscoll on percussion.. Her music is hard to define – but indie folk is probably closest.
Lisa Schouw, an ARIA nominated Australian singer/songwriter, interprets an intoxicating blend of songs from the distant past and the near future that speak of the tender borderlands that lie between lovers meeting for the first or last time. Here with her partner Rob Gist, a record producer and multi instrumentalist, and who was in the band “Girl Overboard” with Lisa. Moving effortlessly from pop to jazz to folk and beyond Schouw leaves her audience wondering, “where the hell that voice was coming from. There was a quality to it that was sublime” (Ella James, 2UE).
Bleeding Gums Murphy like mashing up songs and sticking them back together, paper-mache style! This duo, with Reuben Ryan and Elliot Peck, have been entertaining local audiences with their unique fun style of music.
