123 Agency presents:
Riley Pearce + Gostwyck
Entry Requirements: 18+
2017 has delivered great things for Perth singer-songwriter Riley Pearce. Not only did he play his first international shows in London, Pearce picked up a ‘WAM Song of the Year’ Award, and also had one of his songs feature in the US hit show ‘Shadowhunters.’ His ‘Outiside The Lines’ EP, released early 2016, has amassed over 6 million streams on Spotify, leaving crowds eagerly awaiting new material. That wait ends today.
Riley Pearce’s new single ‘Misplaced’ expresses Pearce’s inner monologue, describing the uncertainties and overthinking that comes along with entering into a new relationship. Recorded with Andy Lawson (Debaser Studios) who produced Pearce’s last EP, the track is both haunting and uplifting, blending a mixture of bare bones space and grander orchestral elements to reflect the dynamic highs and lows of what a relationship can be like.
Riley heads off around the Country for the first time in over a year, with shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay, Brisbane & Gold Coast, including a spot at Swagger Music Festival in regional Victoria.
With an EP planned for release in 2018, his new single ‘Misplaced’ is our first taste of things to come.
SET TIMES Riley Pearce: 9:30pm – 10:30pm Gostwyck: 8:30pm – 9:10pm
Tickets will be $15.00 on the door if available
Calling on a mixture of percussive guitar slapping, raw vocals, and an honest brand of songwriting, 23yr old alt-folk artist Riley Pearce is quite possibly one of the most exciting acts to be coming out of WA right now. With two EPs (We Are Fools, Outside The Lines) and just as many WAM ‘Song of the Year’ nominations, his well-crafted songs are earning a lot of industry praise. His tracks have been featured on everything from Qantas Flights, to key music blogs Indie Shuffle, BuzzFeed and Stereofox and that love has continually flowed into Triple J and community radio support. His impressive one man live shows are catapulting him onto bigger and bigger stages with an impressive array of support slots for big international acts (Lifehouse, Lord Huron) and for some of the homegrown gems (Kim Churchill, Little May, Josh Pyke). Taking inspiration from his musical heroes in Paul Dempsey, Justin Vernon & Ben Howard, meeting in the middle is Pearce; an incredible lyricist, passionate songwriter and truly talented artist.
