Listed by


"Andrea Kirwin has a rare voice that runs deep....deep enough to carry you back to an era where the way an artist delivered their message was everything" - LIOR

Andrea Kirwin is an Australian/Fijian singer-songwriter/producer and storyteller based on the Sunshine Coast. Currently working on her 4th independent album release with a central theme of love, belonging and inclusiveness. Andrea’s local shows are usually as a solo artist or duo, however she also performs with her band at Festivals around Australia and NZ. Her music can be best described as feel good roots/soul/folk with an emphasis on sweet melodies.

In 2009, Andrea founded her own independent record label, Peace Run Records, and has released 3 full length studio albums; From the Ground Up (2013), The Story of Us (2015) and A Quiet Revolution (2017). She has been a regular performer at Folk festivals around Australia for over 10 years including The Woodford Folk Festival (QLD), Wintermoon (QLD), Palm Creek Folk Festival (In her hometown Townsville), Fairbridge Festival (WA), and more recently Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival in New Zealand.

"The heart is a thousand-stringed instrument that can only be tuned with Love."

The Dawn Light is an exciting new project by Angela Iimura & Oj Newcomb which also features highly acclaimed musicians Charles Wall (aka Bobby Alu) on drums and Brodie Graham (Thump, BGB, The New Buzz, Golden Sound, Dave Orr Band) on guitar.

After many years of deeply connecting with the profound verses of the great mystic poets - Hafiz and Francis Brabazon - Angela Began to use their poems as lyrics, writing songs that could be described as a dear companion to the human spirit, shedding beams of light, joy and inspiration on the path of life.

To share the love, Angela teamed up with her husband and music partner Oj Newcomb (John Butler Trio, Afro Dizzi Act, Band of Frequencies) to bring to life 'The Dawn Light', named after one of Francis Brabazon's poems.

Influenced by artists such as Erykah Badu, Ledisi, Allen Stone, Emily King, D'Angelo, Jill Scott, Jon Cleary, Joao Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim, The Dawn Light's sound is angelic, playful, moving and deeply soulful, paying homage to these great poets. This combination of musicians, words and music will surely inspire your heart and soul to dance.
