Montgomery Church (W. Band) 'Where The Quiet Can Hide' Tour + Special Guests Charlie & Jensen
"Montgomery Church make a rare kind of hill country magic: spinning gossamer tapestries with timeless acoustic sounds, quicksilver vocal harmonies, and the kind of unassuming storytelling that burrows deep into the subconscious." - Gareth Hipwell (Country Update Magazine)
Cielle Montgomery and James Church are, Montgomery Church - a blend of acoustic folk, americana and bluegrass influences, grown and distilled in the Snowy Mountain ranges of country New South Wales.
With their organic union of dobro and guitar, harmony vocals and thoughtful songwriting, this captivating duo, accompanied by their band, are enthralling in their dynamic intimacy and offer up some of the sweetest acoustic sounds being heard around Australia's folk country scene right now.
They have graced the stages of many iconic music festivals including Nannup Music Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, National Folk Festival & Americanafest in Nashville.
Montgomery Church's debut album In the Shadow of the Mountain, earned them 2 nominations in the prestigious 2019 Golden Guitar Awards. The duo recently teamed up with 7 x GRAMMY nominated Producer & Engineer, Erick Jaskowiak (Crooked Still, I'm With Her, Darrell Scott) to record their highly anticipated follow-up, Where The Quiet Can Hide, and are thrilled to be celebrating it's release.
"Montgomery Church are like the Australian version of Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings but if Gillian was the daughter of Allison Krauss… sitting on a porch, with tea not whiskey… I'm a tad obsessed… The most graceful duo literally gracing stages right now." - Fanny Lumsden (Golden Guitar & ARIA Award Winner)
This beautiful evening of live acoustic music will be complimented by the addition of very special guests, Charlie & Jensen.
Charlie & Jensen is a musical conversation between acoustic artists Hunter Beasley and Luke Wright. They journey through genres, shifting from vocally charged original songs, to virtuosic instrumental tunes, taking a stripped-back, raw approach to music and performance.
Having toured Australia many times, including with Italian and World Music sensation Unavantaluna, Charlie & Jensen have also pleased crowds at some of the country's favourite Folk & Bluegrass Festivals, including The National Folk Festival, Cobargo, Dorrigo and Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Their musical chemistry is evident in their self-titled album, a collection of recordings, unedited and undeniable which saw them at the Golden Guitar awards with two award nominations.
