This year, the annual Rolling Stone Live Lodge has returned to Sydney, showcasing the best of Australian music — both established and emerging acts — via a program of conversations with artists and live shows across September and October at the resurrected Lansdowne. For EMI New Music Night, three burgeoning singer-songwriters with distinct, innovative sounds were hand-picked to charm an audience and reveal exciting homegrown talent in 2017. As expected, the triple-headliner bill of Nicole Millar, Odette and Evan Klar did not disappoint. We were there to capture it all.
