Hard to imagine but it’s 25 years since Deborah Conway burst in to the Australian rock charts with her smash-hit String of Pearls album.

"Since then she has gone on to show that, alongside Paul Kelly, she is the most consistent and important singer-songwriter we have. She is Australia’s Annie Lennox, but a true original, and there’s no mistaking her voice, energy and musical intelligence." - Steve Moffatt

"…the rich and mostly acoustic base of Zygier's guitar playing is delicate and adept, while Conway’s voice still has that bell-like clarity and occasional growl or questioning sneer, now coloured by life experience." - Ross Clelland

Conway & Zygier have just released their 9th studio album Everybody’s Begging and will be performing it as it was written, a stripped back acoustic duo delivery that reveals all the intricacies, the ecstasy and the intrigues and lays it bare for the listener to fully appreciate this latest piece by one of the great mature songwriting partnerships in the southern hemisphere.

Deborah Conway & Willy Zygier are significant and eloquent contributors to Australian music and have been for over 30 years. Conway’s first band Do Re Mi topped the charts; her first solo album achievedplatinum sales and earned her an ARIA award. Conway started working with Willy Zygier in 1991; together they have written, recorded & released 9 albums that have all attracted appreciative audiences & critical acclaim from reviewers. Alongside the core business of writing, recording and performing songs they pioneered the house concert concept in 2004 called Summerware; produced the national concert series called Broad of all female singer/songwriters 2005 – 2008; Conway was the Artistic Director for the Queensland Music Festival 2009 – 2011; and they are running the Shir Madness Melbourne Jewish Music Festival as Festival & Artistic Directors in 2015 & 2017.

In 2016 Conway & Zygier’s 1993 5/4 anthem Alive & Brilliant was inducted into the National Film & Sound Archive and the Leaps & Bounds Festival named Conway a Living Legend.

Conway and Zygier have just released a new album ‘Everybody’s Begging’.
