A songwriter for 10 years, Genevieve mixes folk with soft rock and heartfelt lyrics, reflecting her life experience.

She has a wide appreciation for music of various styles. Her influences range from artists like Tracey Chapman to legends such as Van Morrison and Janis Joplin which gives her compositions an eclectic style allowing her to glide between genres. Genevieve has been playing in bands from the age of 14, from metal bands to acoustic duo’s, rhythm and blues to rock n roll and has now ventured out as a solo artist. Genevieve has had the opportunity of performing with members of the B.B. King orchestra and supporting the likes of Little Birdy, The Screaming Jets, Diesel, Borne and Shihad to name a few.

Genevieve combines her youthful enthusiasm with musical ability and lyrical insight beyond her years to capture the attention of any audience.

John Hill & Cora James

Described as having a voice like whisky, honey and cigarettes Cora blends Jazz, Blues, Soul, Rock and R&B into her own stylish & cool musical cocktail. Cora sings with a passion, interprets a song and makes it her own.

Cora has played all the major venues in Sydney and had a Tuesday night residency at the hip Monkey Bar in Balmain with her band The Whisky Angels from 1999 to 2001. With John Hill on vocals/keys Darrio Bortolin on bass and Lloyd G on drums she sang her special brand of soul/jazz/blues and played to a packed house every night.

Cora James and John Hill
From 2001 Cora based herself in London for 8 years. She played all over the capital and had stints living and working in Amsterdam, Osaka and Nagoya in Japan and touring Sri Lanka.

A first rate musician, John Hill plays piano with purposeful and heartfelt intent and always in his own individual style. A singer, possessing a soulful, mellifluous voice - full of deep beauty and soaring exhilaration. His way with a melody is impeccable and highly original. A songwriter, par excellence, John writes music, from the heart and lyrics, that will illuminate the mind before touching your soul.

Cora and John will be underpinned by Paul Meader (direct from Amsterdam) on double bass, for this gig.
