Posted: 19 Jul 2020
LOVE LOCAL LIVE concludes this Monday 20th July. This series was proudly presented and supported by Blue Mountains City Council in partnership with Fusion Boutique and Shelter Studios.

The series of 6 live streamed music performances by local artists held at a local recording and rehearsal studio with production by KFM Media was held every Monday 7-8pm from 15th June.

LOVE LOCAL LIVE included:
• Monday 15 June – Linda Mizzi
• Monday 22 June – Le Hot Club de Katoomba
• Monday 29 June – Bonniedoon Duo
• Monday 6 July – Aurora Li & Ace Evergreen
• Monday 13 July – The Three Handed Beat Bandits
Monday 20 July – CJ Stranger

Love Local Live was Council’s first-ever series of local events brought to the community via live streaming. It was an extension of the Council’s Love Local campaign launched in January to help support local businesses.

Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill said: “While restrictions are slowly easing, public gatherings are still limited and we understand many in our community are hesitant to venture out into crowds. That’s why Council is still looking for creative and safe ways to engage with you. The new Love Local Live series will bring a little entertainment to you, wherever you are, while supporting and promoting local businesses and creatives.”

All artist photos by photographer Lona Logan from Inertia Photography who as a part of the project has completed a photo shoot of each act to give them some further images to use for their portfolios and for further promotional use.

We had a marvellous launch on Monday 15th with a fabulous and personal performance from LINDA MIZZI, followed by a highly enjoyable performance by LE HOT CLUB DE KATOOMBA, and we are really looking forward to the further performer showcases to come.

A big thank you to Blue Mountains City Council for enabling this project to happen and for recognising the impact our current situation has had on our local music industry and acknowledging the value that music can have for the audience.

The final live stream of Love Local Live #6 – CJ STRANGER
Monday 20th July 7-8pm
FREE LIVE STREAMED MICRO MUSIC CONCERT

CJ Stranger hones a unique sound and spirit. He carves out contemporary Australian music and perfectly matches gentle simmering with the raw honesty of reflective coming-of-age lyrics.
Slinging a small-but-powerful arsenal of instruments, CJ Stranger crafts his distinctive sound using an old weathered resonator, a weird vintage organ, and his beloved purple guitar Frankenstein-ed out of discarded bits and pieces. This array of re-purposed musical antiques allows CJ Stranger to sculpt a vivid and honest landscape for his musings.

These days based in the Blue Mountains while regularly Sydney-side, CJ’s 2016 debut album established his prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitar player, but it was a different kind of animal. CJ Stranger is an exaggerated and more nuanced side of Henderson, brought forth by exploring this new artistic persona.
A singer-songwriter through and through, CJ Stranger’s captivating voice, tell-all lyrics and natural feel for fingerpicking walk together in perfect synchrony.
