Brunswick Music Festival and Shadow Electric present a night of exquisite blues, roots and alt-country from the smoky, sultry voices of Melbourne’s female tour de forces, Mia Dyson and Jess Ribeiro with guests.
The four-time ARIA nominated and award winning Australian singer songwriter has been dividing her time between LA and home. She returns to Brunswick with her new EP Right There performed alongside her favourites; all tied together by her signature whisky-tinged voice and ballsy take on rockin’ blues. Her live shows continue to “explore the boundaries of what one woman can do with a rock and roll band, a guitar built by her father… and a sublime grit & gravel voice that lands her squarely between Lucinda Williams & Bob Dylan” Boston Globe.
Mia is joined on stage by her formidable band including Danny McKenna (drums), Tim Keegan (bass/vox) and the inimitable Liz Stringer (keys/vox).
“A luminous album that haunts the ground between believing and beseeching where the human soul resides.”
Songwriter Jess Ribeiro plays hauntingly intimate folk music, incorporating elements of subtle and psychedelic rock, and alt-country – producing an enlightening storytelling experience you’ll cherish forever.
No stranger to acclaim, Jess Ribeiro’s album debut, My Little River, was awarded ABC Radio National’s Album of the Year, Best Country album at the 2012 AIR Awards and was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize.
Inspired by artists as diverse as The Velvet Underground, Dusty Springfield and Patti Smith; Jess Ribeiro presents her latest album, Kill It Yourself. Collaborating with Mick Harvey, Ribeiro dives headlong into hazy rock, landscape ambience and melodious 60’s psych-folk.

Karl S. Williams
Drawing comparisons ranging from Son House to Antony Hegarty and Nina Simone,Karl S. Williams’ music attempts to appeal to our fundamental humanity.
Growing up in a nowhere rural river town and somewhere between the flooded cane fields and deep forests, Karl came to identify with the music of the southern United States. His sound is strongly influenced by the blues of the Mississippi delta but also spirituals, country gospel, Appalachian banjo tunes and swampy soul.
His debut album “is so good it might even save your life.”
