Holly Mae & The Painted Room + Susanna Berivan

  Holly Mae and The Painted Room is a literate art-folk project that draws inspiration from myths, fairtales and Greek tragedy, heavy on swooning, sparking sounds and harmonies. "At her rootsy best, Susanna Berivan combines un-flashy delta style guitar with... a good line in 60s sounding pop-rock, and has moments of folkiness, her voice tying it all together with a fragility that invites the audience into an intimate and melancholy sound world." LIVE REVIEW
Einlass 19:00. Eintritt 6€.

Ian Fisher (USA) + guest

Sean Nicholas McMahon
+ A Seated Craft

As Sofa Salon continues the tradition of being a Berlin home for Australian independent music, we present two Australians: Sean Nicholas McMahon and his plaintive Alt.Country/Folk sounds. He comes from acclaimed Melbourne roots band Downhills Home.
A Seated Craft
is the warm, gossamer music of Alexia Peniguel. The underlying melancholy in her emotive music is leavened by its great, delicate beauty.
