Tess Hannah (Live at Small Time)

Thu 25 Nov 2021 Evening
Naarm/Melbourne-based artist Tess Hannah, the queer champion of moody rock, has learned that giving voice to their inner demons is a shitload more cathartic than letting them fester and rot.
Inspired by artists like Sorry, Angel Olsen, and Phoebe Bridgers, Tess wrote and recorded their debut EP in lockdown with close friend Sebastian Chesney (Blyolk). In true pandemic style, cross-continent collaboration brought a new level of depth to the record with Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, St Vincent) on drums.

Following ‘Filth’ and ‘Heavy’, the first taste of their EP, which gained praise and recognition for its bold, brooding sound and an air of dark humour, Tess follows through with ‘Closer’. This seductive track follows the story of queer sensuality and intimacy, showing a more sombre side to Tess while staying true to their gritty indie/rock vibes.

*Showcasing new and established artists, Live at Small Time prides itself on variety and the Australian music scene. 

*The event will be both live streamed on Facebook and performed in our venue to a limited capacity. Live streamed via Small Time + the artist’s Facebook pages.

*This is a non-ticketed event. To watch the studio recording, we recommend either arriving early to reserve a seat in the main studio lounge or booking the patio for the live stream. Most of the venue has direct or indirect studio vantage points (find out more details here).

Thursday 25 Nov, 8.30pm
