Two of indie pop’s newest darlings, EMMY BRYCE and KATE VIGO, are proud to announce their upcoming co-headline “HUNTER & GATHERER” tour.
The girls met in late 2011 and immediately connected over their mutual passion for music. After spending some time together, the pair decided to team up and create a new live music experience for their fans. Moving from town to town, making new best friends every day and bonding with everything around you – life on the road is a truly magical experience for any artist. Inspired by this, Emmy and Kate wanted to come up with a way to forge closer relationships with their fans and let them in on the fun of touring. The result: THE HUNTER AND GATHERER TOUR.
Throughout the April trek, Emmy and Kate will be engaging with their fans through social media, sharing ideas, images and stories of their travels. In turn, fans will be invited to connect directly with these unique artists and contribute to the whole touring experience.
“Emmy came up with the idea and I really liked her music. We met up a few times and I realized she was a top chick. We played together at the Evelyn and decided that it would be a great idea to do a tour together and join forces. I really liked the brightness and optimism of her sound. It made me feel good inside and I thought it would be great fun and that our shows would complement each other. We are both Melbourne artists who have a style that can be labelled as alternative/pop but within that category we are each incredibly different. We are both coming from opposite ends of the spectrum. Emmy comes from a pop back ground, which is produced and structured and I come from a jazz background which is deconstructed and improvised.” – Kate Vigo
“I approached Kate to join forces and tour because I loved the sound of her music (and her stunning voice) and could see she was kicking real goals with her career – she was serious. It’s inspiring for me to work with other independent artists who are putting their butts on the line for their dream. I wanted to create a community of likeminded artists to get involved with. The tour name came from the fact that I’m hunting for new experiences to be the best I can be, on stage, and in person. I’m gathering knowledge and fun and wisdom along the way and having a bloody great time doing it. I’m only living this one life and it’s been an absolute hoot so far. Ultimately this is my career, my life, and I’ve been hunting this dream for a long time, now it’s a reality.” – Emmy Bryce
Melbourne-based songstress Emmy Bryce is certainly creating waves with her uplifting polaroid pop songs that hint at the ghosts of her childhood. With its minimal percussion opening out to a bedroom-dancing chorus, Emmy’s debut single EVERY STAR IS A SETTING SUN FOR SOMEONE has already earmarked Emmy as a young songwriter of tomorrow. Emmy’s debut EP SEVEN DAYS will be released on March 9.
