Power House held host to the Salty Sessions who coordinated 2 amazingly talented groups, Majak Door and Velvet Bloom to play to an interment audience of 50. Salty Sessions, made up of 2 young ladies, Saacha and Tilly who after discovering the lack of live entertainment venues for up and coming artist, have set about making positive inroads for emerging musicians. Salty Sessions historically have hosted artists at family and friends back yards and homes lead their first event at Power House.
Majak Door is a toxic honeypot of Indie surf, jangle rock and dream pop nonsense, but the four-piece are quite happy to let the listeners describe it as they please.
The boys spent 2018 by releasing their debut EP ‘Weird Guy’, (which has enjoyed over 35,000 streams on Spotify), playing a barrel-load of shows, including support slots for NSW act PLANET on the Melbourne leg of their ‘Save.Sold’ single tour, as well as a juicy slot supporting SEASIDE on the Melbourne leg of their ‘Golden Girl’ single tour, fresh off their Splendour in the Glass slot.
Velvet Bloom is a Melbourne based music project – foundered by Maddy Herbert. Maddy is a story teller who uses her jazz/ balled style vocals and soul/pop sound to bring her emotive lyrics to life.
Currently Maddy performs solo & with her live band; ‘The Vito Collective’. The band has five members including, Anthony Rennick (bassist), Nic Morton (drummer), Alex Marko (lead guitarist), Noah Hunter-Dorsey (keys/ backing vocalist) and Shani Turner (backing vocalist).
If you missed this event at the Power House, keep an eye out as the Salty Sessions is sure to return.
