SONGS FOR OUR PLANET

“We are all born bonded to nature” - Bob Brown

Junction’s Songs For Our Planet will bring together Tasmanian musicians, artists and youth to perform in a unified concert of amazing voices, inspired ideas and passionate protest for our planet.

You will be captivated and moved by the creative leaders of our state, as they celebrate the beauty of the natural world and articulate the importance of protecting it through their artforms.

Tasmanian singer songwriters Tom Fowkes, Oscar Lush, Billie Raffety, Warren Mason, Kenna Reid-Clark, Celeste Evelyn and The Runaway Belles will perform original pieces as Songs For Our Planet. Joining them will be the Songs For Our Planet choir, a group of young Tasmanians who will come together for this once-only performance.

Featuring stunning film and photographic work from artists and activists Ramji, Anna Brozek and Tim Cooper, this multi-sensory experience will be performed as part of Junction’s 10th Anniversary Festival.

Inspired by the Global Youth Climate Strikes, this timely and relevant concert brings together young Tasmanian singers, photographers, filmmakers and environmental activists to create a powerful concert experience like no other.

Billie Raffety

Ever since picking up a guitar at 13, Tasmanian singer songwriter Billie Raffety has been writing. Her compositions are often powerful ballads, utilising vivid imagery to share personal stories and emotions. All together she creates an immersive and personal experience for the listener, somewhat reminiscent of artists such as Phoebe Bridgers, but with the vocal chops and stylings of Lianna La Havas.

Celeste Evelyn

Celeste Evelyn is a Tasmanian born artist/singer-songwriter, honing an original sound that borrows from roots, soul, folk and alt rock, yet strays into a genre undefinable.

Kenna Reid-Clark

Tasmanian musician Kenna Reid-Clark has been playing to streets, places and people for a while and still gets a kick out of how it unfolds each time. Strumming dirt road folk songs is his way of conceptualising stories and things which are otherwise hard to say.

Oscar Lush

Oscar Lush's deeply personal songs are rooted in the poetry of now. He is a songwriter who is, most of all, looking to understand the how and why of the lives we lead and the worlds we all inhabit.

Runaway Belles

Runaway Belles is a Tasmanian indie folk pop act featuring Tash Parker and Emma Anglesey. With a focus on uplifting storytelling and singing in constant harmony, Runaway Belles offer something unique. Described by Tone Deaf as ‘a harmony of indie-folk brilliance’, Tash and Emma’s voices are almost inseparable -- even their mothers can’t tell who’s singing.

Tom Fowkes

Tom Fowkes is a folk singer from Northern Tasmania. His simple, heartfelt, acoustic performances have been fondly received on the island, while more elaborate recordings have captivated audiences across the globe.

Warren Mason

Warren Mason is a proud indigenous man with lines to the Yorta Yorta and Yuwaalaraay tribes. He uses a range of mediums in his art practice with all works linking back towards the idea of healing scars. Warren feels blessed to be a self-taught artist as it gives him the opportunity to reflect himself into the art and music he creates, showing who he is and where he comes from.
