Mahalia Barnes & The Soul Mates + Lee Coulter & Dixie Maxwell @ Camelot/Django
Marrickville Rd & Railway Parade
Mahalia Barnes has been in and around music her entire life which helped shape her into the powerhouse soul and blues vocalist that has jaws dropping every time she picks up a mic.
Don’t expect a quiet, polite, restrained gig, or a gimmicky soul show with costumes and scripted banter. This band covers the full range of the soul music spectrum, the show is dynamic, organic, raw and exciting. Great players, great singing and so much feeling.
On the night, Mahalia will be joined by The Soul Mates Franco Raggatt (guitar), Clayton Doley (keys), Benjamin Rodgers (bass) and David Hibbard (drums) as well as a few special guests!
Lee Coulter & Dixie Maxwell @ Django bar
When you start something new, you don’t expect success at first attempt. But when unsigned singer-songwriters Lee Coulter & Dixie Maxwell teamed up for the first time, their single “We You Me” shot to the top of the itunes singles chart in Australia and New Zealand.
It was no accident. “Overnight success” doesn’t apply when there are decades of paying dues between the two of them. As two seasoned singer songwriters – Coulter originally from Brisbane, Australia and Maxwell from San Diego, CA (with a year stint in the Nashville scene) – they have quietly honed their crafts in the background of cafes, bars and restaurants across the USA.
Together, their sound is exponential. It’s like modern indie-folk meets a classic movie. Encouraged by this fact, the success of their first single and a Kickstarter that reached their goal in just 2 days, they have now teamed up for a full duo album as “Lee Coulter & Dixie Maxwell,” to be released in late May this year, and will be touring Australia to play both solo and duo sets for their new fans down under.
