Sunday Session with Little Forest – 17 September15 September 2017 – posted in: Event News, Winery, Restaurant
Relax and unwind with live music and a cold Cupitt Craft Ale with Little Forest . Their repertoire is a blend of folk, soul and blues; you can expect to hear us put our own spin on our favourite pop covers with a little bit of New Orleans fun thrown in!
Little Forest originates from the south coast of NSW but met through studying contemporary music at Southern Cross University in Lismore. Alyssa began song writing at the age 14, and was a fixture in the local Eurobodalla scene during 08/09, supporting touring acts such as Zeahorse (Sydney), Otouto (Melbourne), Teeth & Tongue (Melbourne), Josh Rawiri (Vic), The Temperamental Pocket (Sydney), Zounds (Sydney) and Ember Swift (Beijing). In 2012 Alyssa was awarded 8th place in the national ‘Catapult Song Contest’ with her song “Leaving town,” recorded by herself and Matt in their home studio.
Matt, a Milton local, gained a valuable background in blues, jazz and funk when he completed a major in guitar performance under Australian fusion legend Jim Kelly, during his studies. Performing regularly in a number of ensembles, the greatest enjoyment for Matt was the experience gained from gigging in the Northern Rivers and Gold Coast with his fellow students.
