Great Southern Nights presents Phil Jamieson with special guest Sophie Ozard
Phil Jamieson comes to Hurstville Entertainment Centre on Thursday 12 November in a special intimate show as part of the Great Southern Nights series of events throughout NSW.
As the voice and face of Grinspoon, Phil Jamieson fronted one of the most popular Australian bands of the last two decades. An accomplished singer, songwriter and guitarist, Jamieson’s generation-defining lyrics and vocal melodies first became etched into rock fans’ DNA in 1995, when the Lismore-born quartet rode a new wave of alternative music to become the first act Unearthed by national youth radio station triple j with its debut single ‘Sickfest’.
So began a love affair that maintained its heat and passion for over one thousand live shows, six consecutive Top 10 debuts and multi-platinum album sales. That initial romance with triple j’s listeners blossomed into full-bloom infatuation: an incredible 17 Grinspoon songs have polled in Hottest 100 countdowns over the years, led by the much-loved ‘Chemical Heart’ (#2 in 2002; #63 in 2013’s Hottest 100 of All Time).
With the release of their seventh album Black Rabbits came the news in late 2013 that Grinspoon were entering hibernation. That was until the massive Guide To Better Living 20th anniversary tour, which took place in 2017. Fresh of their 31-date tour, the band wrapped up the year at NightQuarter with a Best Night Ever! New Year’s Eve bash.
Since then Jamieson’s writing and vocal talents have been put to good use in a solo career which has seen the singer sell out rooms all across the country.
Outside of studios and music venues, Jamieson co-founded the Rock N Ride tour for headspace, the National Youth and Mental Health Foundation, in 2013. The initiative is aimed at engaging local communities to raise awareness about mental health issues faced by young people. This passion project has allowed Jamieson to draw on an extensive network of musicians, friends and media personalities who have ridden over 5000km together while visiting dozens of headspace centres along the way.
Jamieson also starred as St Jimmy in the Australian premiere of the award-winning Broadway musical ‘American Idiot’. With over 80 shows under his belt and numerous sold out shows, Jamieson charmed critics and audiences alike with his performances.
Joining Jamieson for this show is Sophie Ozard.
Sophie’s two self-released singles have attracted both national and international airplay, and she has played alongside artists such as Bernard Fanning, Tex Perkins, and Dami Im. With radio presenters calling her a “sonic gunslinger” and “sharp, angular lyricist”, a live show honed over the last few years of playing shows and festivals across Aus and NZ, and a debut EP due in late 2020, she is quickly finding her feet as an artist.
Don’t miss Phil Jamieson with special guest Sophie Ozard at Hurstville Entertainment Centre’s Civic Theatre in this special performance as part of the Great Southern Nights series of events.
