On May 17, Madeline Leman and the Desert Swells will bring their fresh brand of Americana nostalgia to The Post Office Hotel. Both hard to define and easy to love, their combination of 60s surf rock, 70s pop and country twang will take you on a wild ride that you won’t want to get off. Influenced by Bonnie Raitt, Patsy Cline and Eilen Jewell, Madeline captivates audiences with lush vocals and stories of strong females, lonely lovers and vengeful vixens who ramble their way through the mundane and the profound. Special guest Amarillo's live performance is at times hushed and intimate, with fingerstyle acoustic guitar influenced by British folk of the 1960’s, paired with dark tremolo electric guitar, viola and ethereal vocals. Ruby Gill, South Africa's folk darling, is wowing Australian audiences with songs about privilege and great dane tongues; stories hummed through clenched teeth, piano keys and rusted strings, without fear of feeling things. Don’t miss a night of Melbourne's finest songwriting at the Post Office.
