The Brassett Hounds

Resonate – Kanishk, Savidas, The Brassett Hounds

Resoante kicks off again this Thursday night at the Grand Hotel with three sensational acts.

First up playing the 7.00pm slot is Kanishk. Kanishk made a big impact on the Resonate crowd when he debuted a while back, make sure you get in early to catch his set this time. Kanishk is a solo acoustic singer/songwriter who began performing live last year in Cairns. Drawing influences from artists such as Ben Howard and Matt Corby, Kanishk combines mellow vocal tones and intricate finger-picking techniques to create a unique folk sound. He has just recorded his debut EP ‘In The Water’ with producer Mark Myers (The Middle East, Emma Louise, Passenger) and will be releasing it later this year.

Playing the 8.20 set is the always popular Savidas. From their warm down to earth vibe you wouldn’t expect that the duo Savidas had done shows that include a Royal Command performance for The Lord Mayor of Melbourne and have played at most of the biggest festivals in Australia. Consisting of band members Gumpy on Vocals, Guitar & Breaks and Uma Vernau aka Umalicious on Vocals & Percussion, the duo have been likened to the sounds of John Butler, Ben Harper and Micheal Franti.

It’s always a pleasure having new acts play Resonate and The Brassett Hounds make their Resonate debut this week when they play the 9.30 slot. The Brassett Hounds formed in 2015, performing their collection of eclectic originals in the bars and local haunts of Far North Queensland. Their unique sound and raw, emotional lyrical performance provides a deeply engaging experience.

With influences ranging from Jack White and Smashing Pumpkins to Gary Clarke Jnr and the Lumineers, the Brassett Hounds will take you on a journey of lust, covortion and heart break.

From the delta blues numbers “hold my own” and “Drink to Myself” to the energetic Grunge Rock numbers “Spinster” and “Heart in 2”, the Brassett Hounds provide a truly eclectic and entertaining performance. The Brassett Hounds will be performing as a duo for their Resonate debut.

Resonate is staged every Thursday night at the Grand Hotel in Cairns. Resonate blasts off at 7.00pm and entry is free!
