Event Description

Spend the Saturdays of Summer at Cockatoo Island's Sunset Sessions, our relaxed live music series. 

2 March – Bec Sandridge

Supported by FVNERAL

A unique stage presence, Bec Sandridge commands audiences with her distinct vocals. She draws upon her folk roots to create 80s-esque, nostalgic-driven pop songs. Inspired by Cyndi Lauper, David Byrne and Prince, Sandridge transports listeners into a sentimental space via fuzzed out guitars, ethereal vocals and arpeggiator synthesizers, and in more tender moments, carries a story with just a guitar.

Bec has supported the likes of The Naked And Famous (NZ), Mitski (US), The Rubens, Missy Higgins, Cub Sport and Montaigne. She was the winner of triple j Unearthed’s Yours And Owls Festival and International Songwriting Competition finalist (Unsigned category) which was judged by Dua Lipa, Chris Martin of Coldplay and Tom Waits.                         

Far from the sombre connotations their name might evoke, FVNERAL is a celebration of life’s nuanced beauty. Since bursting onto the scene with the release of their debut EP in late 2022, the band had a busy 2023 - from hitting the road across the East Coast with the likes of Trophy Eyes’ John Floreani and Late November, as well as international heavyweights The Aces (US) and KiNG MALA (US), to releasing their sophomore EP ‘HONEST’, which debuted at #27 on the NACC (US College Radio charts).
