Peace Run Records is proud to present Coda Chroma live at Black Box Theatre, Nambour on Saturday 24 June. Having just released their third studio album, Dreamself on 31 March 2023, Coda Chroma are touring nationally and we’re stoked their visiting Nambour. Supported by one of our favourite QLD artists and recent QMA award winner Monique Clare, this will truly be a world class night of Australian entertainment. Tickets are $30 + booking fee and doors will open at 6.30pm with a 7pm start. The old ambo will be running a licensed bar. Read more about the artists below.
Coda Chroma (aka Kate Lucas) is an award-winning songwriter from Ballarat, Victoria, and is described as “one of the most innovative and noteworthy musicians in Australia.” (Tone Deaf, 2021). Coda Chroma creates music that sways between cinematic and baroque pop, with otherworldly harmonies, honest and existential lyrics, suspended in deeply nuanced production.
The new album celebrates the liminal space between awake and asleep, where stories unfold through abstraction and try to make sense of experiences and situations. Dreamself has landed album of the week on PBS, 2SER, and Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR), with tracks added to Double J rotation and landing in the AMRAP charts.
Winner of Queensland Music Award 2023 for Classical category, Monique Clare is not your ordinary Classical musician. Wielding a cello and strikingly crafted vocals, Monique Clare delivers indie-folk laced with chamber pop. Driving rhythms collide with intricate cello lines; heart-tugging harmonies are woven through compelling vocals. Her lyrics speak to the ruminations of her generation and dive deep into the universal experiences of love and loss. Her disarmingly candid stage presence is born from years of international touring with The Maes and session work for everyone from Kate Miller-Heidke to Eminem. With a smile as wide as the Cheshire cat’s, and an audacious tendency to reveal her deepest secrets onstage, her live show is cathartic, adventurous and mesmerising. She draws listeners into her storytelling, sifting through the raw, the imperfect and the unspoken. Always seeking connection, she craves the rush of an intimately honest performance.
Raised by a singer and a pipe organist who shared a mutual love of Bach, Gregorian chant and French Impressionist harmony, Monique grew up in a habitat of choirs, surrounded by layers of individual voices forming an immersive wall of sound. While she grew up in a musical family, it took her 13 years to discover Björk, 16 to form a Radiohead obsession, 21 to catch on to The Beatles and 26 to fall in love with Joni Mitchell. Peace Run Records has hosted a sold out show for Monique last year and she also came and performed in January to another full house at Black Box Theatre and we cannot wait to see her perform again supporting Coda Chroma on Saturday 24 June.
