Since holding down the Foundry 616 jazz hip-hop jams for the better part of 2015, Ziggy has been performing weekly at local events, whether its hosting a full house jam or performing solo, Ziggy commands the stage with a weaponised vocal Thu'um that is hard to ignore.
After his latest release "ZiggyRaps", Ziggy supported the Australian Hip-Hop veteran Drapht at the Metro theatre for his Seven Mirrors tour and since then has been front-manning for the always pumping Lamb Jam at Black sheep in Newtown, freestyling with finesse for hours on end!
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
CLOSE TO FOREVER
Audiences are raving about the recent sell-out shows of Close to Forever, an exciting project from seasoned performers Dale Caldwell (Voices from the Vacant Lot, Martenitsa) and Ben Fink (The Whitlams, Lior, Christa Hughes, Stiff Gins, Waiting for Guinness, Voices from the Vacant Lot). Sharing their handcrafted interpretations of songs of love and loss, sorrow and joy, they transport you into a world of lush harmonies, beautiful silences and timeless melodies.
Armed with just their voices, one guitar and haunting atmospheric effects, they will share original works, favourite rarities and uncovered gems. Anything from Tim Buckley and PJ Harvey to Nina Simone and Armenian traditional laments.
This is a rare opportunity to share the music of Dale and Ben up close as they perform Close To Forever in the cozy Level 1 Lounge.
iHearMusic.com welcomes you to come and celebrate another night of community, diverse entertainment and fun as we enjoy original music by Australian artists. We host our events on the first Thursday of every month!
