Magpie Diaries and Suicide Swans

Concert or Performance

20 Jun 2019

Magpie Johnston is a unique fella. Born and bred to be the Dashville man, he grew up on the same rural property where he now hosts some of the best weekend outdoor parties Australia has to offer. Generally consumed by festival creation and the running of the project, it was the desire to play music that started it all.

Originally Magpie Diaries was a performance concept where Magpie set out to compile and perform all his random writings amongst various books and scrap paper. The songs are old soul, unique and somewhat timeless, some are new, some are about 18 years old. One thing is for sure though, a catalogue of music has begun that will appeal to anyone who enjoys laid back music from the heart.

Open the gates and stand clear Suicide Swans are heading to town. Through constant live shows they display the ragged glory and swagger of rock, laid back country and dashes of pop that has seen the band grow into the live force they term cosmic country. Their live sound includes waves of keys, textures and a new found penchant for experimentation, tossing in a mix of country, rock and a hint of pop.
