2 Nov 2020 Once Only Event
Spring into toe tapping Music on Flinders for some relaxing time out over lunch. This Monday
Gene Phoa will perform with full audio backup outdoors on the Pilgrim Church forecourt under the trees. Seating is provided.
Gene is an emerging, alternative singer-songwriter based in Adelaide. He transforms malady into melody to find the light within the human experience. He pairs a luminous voice with infectious hooks and anthemic shots of truth.
Gene has been classically trained in piano throughout childhood. He picked up the guitar in a teenage bid to emulate his indie/alt heroes. When he moved to Sydney, in the hope of landing a job in the music business, he detoured into the world of PR, startups and advertising. That was, until he went off backpacking. An impromptu open mic night in India reminded him that the stage was where he was supposed to be!
He finds inspiration in the likes of the Arctic Monkeys and Panic! at the Disco.
His original song “Folklore War” took out the lyrics category at the 2019 SCALA Festival of Original Music and he will be sharing his yet-to-be-released debut of works, “Young Love Days” – a collection of lovelorn guitar ballads for the hopelessly romantic.
