Fremantle Arts Centre’s intimate winter music program Gallery Sessions returns each Thursday night in August. Each show features a double bill of Perth’s most talented songwriters performing stripped-back sets up-close in FAC’s Main Gallery and Pavlich Room. With a small, cosy crowd and the beautiful backdrop of artworks from Panacea, FAC’s latest exhibition, Gallery Sessions is a unique and unforgettable return to live music.

An eternal student of sound and song, Jay Watson’s study reaches new levels of distinction on Out In The World, his fifth GUM solo album in almost as many years. After landing on the title which evoked an imaginary mood board of 80s English jangle pop and wintry blue skies, Out In The World emerged following a year of experimenting, writing and recording at home in Fremantle. Stealing studio time between his commitments with Pond and Tame Impala, Watson’s ever omnivorous taste for styles, sounds and eras coupled with his ongoing quest to make sense of this madness we call life has gifted his most potent, vibrant GUM album to date.

Rachael Dease’s artistic practice encompasses art music, film and theatre scoring, installation and songwriting. She won the inaugural Martin Sims Award at Fringe World, the Melbourne Fringe Music Award and received critical acclaim at New York Fringe Festival for her contemporary song cycle City of Shadows. Her composition and sound design for theatre include the Helpmann Award-nominated It’s Dark Outside (The Last Great Hunt), Sunset (Strut Dance/Maxine Doyle) and Rest (WAYTCO). Here she performs with longtime collaborator, and Schvendes bandmate, Tristen Parr. 

Gallery Sessions begins with a guided tour of Panacea before audiences take their seats for the cabaret style show of songs and stories. Enjoy a heartfelt set from one artist before moving to the other performance space and doing it all again for the second half of the show. 

Please note that the audience will be split into two groups so purchase tickets together in Audience Group 1 or 2 to ensure you’re seated with your friends or family.
