9:45pm - BK : MW with special guest Daniel Beinke

Expanding on over half a decade of collaboration in various projects, vocalist Bianca Kyriacou and guitarist Maximilian West explore the intimacy of composing and performing as a duo. Drawing from styles that allow for an expression of softness, BK : MW aim to create music that makes the listener feel known and included in the closeness of the duo.

Double bassist Daniel Beinke will be joining BK : MW in their first of a series of gigs transforming the duo into a trio, exploring the addition of another instrument and its interaction with the BK : MW material.

Multifaceted, Melbourne based artist Joanna Kerr joins with guitarist and composer, Curtis Reardon.

A recent graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts, she continues to explore and hone her crafts as a musician, taking on a variety of performance projects, utilising her versatility in solo and duo settings, larger ensembles, and experimental vocal groups.

With a keen ear and a penchant for melding her jazz training with pop sensibility, she adds to her prolific repertoire as a songwriter, working towards releasing her debut album. Her latest collaboration is with up and coming electronic artist and drummer, BARNARD, on the single "Separation Street".

Curtis is a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts, where he was awarded the Marion Thomas Scholarship and received the Allan Zavod Jazz Fusion Composition Award.
