Gabriel Lynch Dependent State Asia Tour
Date: 26 January 2013
Fee: $180 incl 1 standard drink
Australian troubadour, Gabriel Lynch, returns to Asia in 2013 to present songs from his new mini-album, Dependent State. After wooing audiences throughout the continent in 2012, Lynch will take to the stage with a renewed energy and vibrancy that has earned him the accolade of possessing “one of the best Aussie male voices you’ve never heard” (BMA Mag, Australia).
The independent musician has performed at festivals internationally alongside the likes of Elbow, The Whitlams, and Architecture in Helsinki and has often been found sharing the stage with long-time musical colleagues and rising indie stars, Charles Lim (Singapore) and Svavar Knutur (Iceland). At age 25, he has toured extensively throughout Australia, Asia and Europe, garnering the title of “Australia’s Damien Rice, minus the cheese” (Iceland National Radio).
Dependent State, which features the lead single “Another Apology”, is Lynch’s most evocative and intricate release to date. His extraordinary lyrics document episodes of guilt, emancipation and, in the case of the tumbling centrepiece “What Friends Are For”, even murder. The record demonstrates Lynch’s prowess as a songwriter and storyteller and is carried by his unorthodox and delicate guitar work and distinctive baritone.
Watching Lynch in concert is like “being regaled by a solemn bard with a series of absorbing tales” (Rave Magazine, Australia). His music is “sweet, darling and emotionally charged” (The Grapevine) and he is just as likely to inspire a spontaneous sing-along as he to reduce his audience to complete silence.
Throughout January and February, audiences in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the Philippines will once again have the opportunity to see Gabriel Lynch live performing songs from his latest release.

’Kaona’ is a fearless explorer of life, unabashedly questioning

She is a living example of the type of awe-inspiring next generation leader potential within the synergistic areas of arts, education, social enterprise, consciousness and innovation; of which an amazing city like Hong Kong has the capability to produce.
At 18, she debuted as an independent solo singer, after teaching herself the guitar from age 11 after a traffic accident which left her hospitalised. Having performed for audiences in HK, Taiwan, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Tokyo, Macau and Seoul; from supporting guest artist for Angie Hart from Frente! in 2010 to international music festivals, radio interviews and performance with music host Leung Dont; Kaona is a mature performer beyond her years who sings from her heart, true to her spirit and is passionate about creating a new industry sector supporting independent artists with a meaningful message.
