On the second Saturday of each month, three singer / songwriters take to the Turbine Stage at the Brisbane Powerhouse to chat about their inspiration and perform their songs. This is one of the many free programs available at the Powerhouse in New Farm.
In March, Kellie Lloyd hosted the lover (Alan Boyle), the joker (Asa Broomhall) and the fighter (Alex Henriksson of Bang Bang Boss Kelly and John and Alexander). The regular format for Waxing Lyrical has each performer talking about and performing around five songs in a listening room environment, with the audience encouraged to have a chat with the musicians after the event.

In May, Kellie Riordon had Loren, Dana Gehrman and Shelley Evans up on stage. Loren had travelled up for Northern NSW for the night, and also held the May Friday night residency at the Powerhouse. My highlight of this night was Loren playing the Churango.

In June, Kellie Lloyd facilitated social conscience (Jack & Marcello from Jack & the giant killers), passion (Anthony Dettori from The Sunburys) and sensitivity (Tom Kline, visiting from Melbourne). Kellie talked with the gents about their favourite chord and given there were a few university "drop-outs", there was a discussion about trying to study music in a formal setting.

Waxing Lyrical is held on the second Saturday of the month, running from 5pm to 7pm, with food and drinks are readily available from Bar Alto. I'm looking forward to seeing who'll be featured next. See you there!
