Sat 07 Septemberw/ The Alan Ladds
For 25 years, the glorious voices of Vika and Linda Bull have comprised one of the most distinctive, versatile and emotionally charged sounds on the Australian music landscape.
Since their multi-platinum conquest of pop radio with the Black Sorrows in the late 1980s, the sisters have forged diverse pathways into soul, gospel, blues, country and the island music of their Tongan ancestry.
By turns tender and powerful, their rich solo vocals and instinctive harmonies have spawned eight albums of their own, as well as illuminating studio and concert performances by Paul Kelly, Renee Geyer, John Farnham, Hunters & Collectors, Tim Finn, Kasey Chambers, John Butler and many more.
Their invitation to join Joe Camilleri’s Black Sorrows ushered in that band’s most successful era: Hold Onto Me, Harley and Rose and Better Times were all triple-platinum albums between ’88 and ’92, and the sisters’ prominent vocals captivated massive audiences, here and worldwide.
Vika & Linda, their debut album of 1994, was produced by Paul Kelly and written by some of the most accomplished songwriters of the era, including Paul, Joe, Stephen Cummings, Mark Seymour and Nick Barker.
On stage, the sisters continue to seek challenges as diverse Tell The Angels, a gospel album recorded live in a Brunswick pub; John Butler’s Live From Federation Square DVD; the Voice collaboration with Renee Geyer; and Meet Me In the Middle of the Air, an innovative mix of jazz and gospel created by Paul Kelly and Paul Grabowsky.
Vika & Linda perform a very special one night show at The Yarraville Club, on Saturday September 7th. Dinner & show or show only tickets are available.
