Gold Coast alternate folk duo The Altais, comprise of 20-year-old Perth-born Eliza-Jane Doherty and 22-year-old Tully Davidson, two independent solo artists who loved each others’ music so much that they decided to join forces last year and have been warming the hearts of Queensland audiences since.
Having recently performed at the Black Bear Lodge’s 50 Years of Bob Dylan Tribute in Brisbane, as well as secured spots at both Bleach Festival and the highly anticipated 2high Festival on the Gold Coast, the young band are quickly making their mark in both Brisbane and Gold Coast circles, and this morning announced that they will tour for the first time down the coast with two Sydney shows this month.
Inspired by the likes of Bon Iver, Ben Howard and Damien Rice, The Altais are drawn to music’s emotive power. With inimitable rawness, truth and delicacy, these two young storytellers come together to paint a fragrant picture of the heart, the soul, love, loss, their travels and their triumphs, as well as the occasional hillside, ridge-line and snow-capped mountaintop.
If you like your music to be written with honesty and performed with a level of humbleness and humour that warms the soul, then you’ll love this little duo. The Altais appear at their first ever Sydney Shows on the following dates:
Wednesday 27 February @ Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinemas, Bondi
Thursday 28 February @ The Newsagency, Marrickville, with Little May & Ryan Collings
