The next Love Local Live is on Monday, July 6, featuring two young performers, Aurora Li and Ace Evergreen.
Presented and supported by Blue Mountains City Council in partnership with Fusion Boutique and Shelter Studios, Love Local Live is a series of six live-streamed music performances by local artists held at a local recording and rehearsal studio with production by KFM Media.
At only 17, Katoomba singer/songwriter Aurora Li is fast becoming a seasoned performer, playing at live venues and events around Australia and collecting a slew of awards along the way.
Aurora writes songs that are sometimes upbeat and irreverent, occasionally sad and angry, and often deeply moving, but always showing a wisdom and insight far beyond her years. Her spare, indie pop/folk sound is complemented by sharply observed lyrics that urge you to close your eyes and listen in, as she ponders the regrets, worries and passions of teenage life with a voice that will gently carry you along for the ride.
People who have heard her sing tend to describe Ace Evergreen (Luca Zumwalt) as an old soul. At eight she picked up her first ukulele, at nine she dubbed herself 'Ace Evergreen' and she's been quietly and earnestly crafting a unique musical identity ever since.
Ace, now 11, has swapped the ukulele for a guitar and comes armed with a truckload of vocal skill and charm, writing songs pulled from places you wouldn't think an 11-year-old capable of going. Ace Evergreen: a sensitive and sm.all soul living an inconceivable conundrum just trying to make sense of it all through song.
