Event Description

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

16 March – Gabriella Cohen

Supported by Billsbry

Gabriella Cohen plays music which is all-at-once laidback, tongue in cheek and earnest, peppered with 60’s girl groups and a love for Lou Reed. She is known for her her magnetic performances, drawing in audiences effortlessly with her off-hand charm and brilliant songwriting. 

Hailing from a tiny permaculture village you definitely wouldn’t have heard of, Gabriella has self-produced three critically acclaimed albums to date and has toured the world with the likes of Big Thief, Brian Jones Town Massacre, Foxygen, Alice Phoebe Lou, Devendra Banhart and Babe Rainbow.

Pitchfork hailed her as a ‘clever and wise-cracking songwriter’, Rolling Stone predicted she’ll be house hold name in no time and NME said ‘Cohen reflects the truth of humanity’.

Billsbry is the musical alias of Eora/Sydney based solo artist, Charlie Billsberry-Fisher. Starting out experimenting with instrumental psychedelic music, Billsbry’s sound has progressively evolved incorporating soul, jazz and experimental soundscapes to his repertoire, along with discovering his own voice.
In a live setting, Billsbry showcases his unique blend of genres using an electric guitar, drum sampler and a handpicked selection of boutique guitar pedals to craft his original songs through multi textured layering.
