@Imperial Hotel Eumundi
Saturday 12 December, Doors open 7pm
Following the sell-out shows of CoVibes 1, 2, 3 and 4, The Imperial Hotel Eumundi has announced ‘CoVibes 5’ will take place on Saturday 12 December, with AYLA and SYCCO set to take to the stage in The Brewery, supported by COLIE.
The CoVibes series of events is all about bringing the live music back in an intimate, seated event in the beautiful Brewery room in a Covid-safe environment.
In the world of modern music AYLA is a refreshing force. At once humble and unassuming, yet as an artist, daringly bold.
Ayla’s brand of decadent pop, effortlessly combines otherworldly vocals with sharp-pop blows and multi-faceted production, all the while never underplaying deep lyrical sentiments.
In 2014, at just 18, Ayla released her debut single ‘Wish I Was’, which immediately gained attention with Australian radio. By the end of the year this debut single came in #15 on Triple J’s most played songs of the year and #1 by a solo female artist. The track also gained traction on European radio, resulting in a distribution deal with EGO Records in Italy (Emma Louise, The Jezabels) and a place on a remix EP, which has a total of 2 million listens on YouTube alone. ‘Wish I Was’ then featured on Ayla’s debut EP, with two further singles, ‘Waiting’ and ‘When the World Ends’, also gaining high rotation play on Triple J radio. A coveted ‘Like A Version’ session with the station later that year cemented Ayla’s place on the stage of the Australian music scene.
Ayla has since performed at festivals including Big Pineapple, Festival of the Sun and Woodford Folk Festivals, as well as supported acclaimed acts including Kate Miller-Heidke, San Cisco, Kim Churchill, Asta and toured the country with her own headline shows.
18-year-old Brisbane songwriter and producer Sasha McLeod is SYCCO.
Equally at home in the studio and on the stage, Sycco demands attention for her soulful voice, observant lyrics, psychedelic jazz aura and undeniable charisma.
Following a buzzy set at Bigsound, Sycco was added to the line-ups of the 2020 Laneway Festival and Groovin The Moo and asked to support the likes of Spacey Jane and Vera Blue.
Sycco released her third single ‘Peacemaker’ to widespread acclaim. She was made Triple J Unearthed’s feature artist of the week and the track was added to full rotation on Triple J as well as Spotify’s New Music Friday, Front Left and Indie Arrivals playlists, as well as several key Apple playlists.
Colie is a project from North Queensland singer-songwriter Nicole Cross. Sincere songwriting drawn from personal experiences and embracing vulnerability has always come naturally to Colie. She is a storyteller at heart, creating crisp clear poetry in music-motion filling the hearts of her listeners with warm assurance.
From Julia Jacklin and Gretta Ray to Johnny Cash and The Police, Colie’s sound has been inﬂuenced by an interesting mix of genres. Colie is proud of her folk roots, and her sound has been described as a fully realised folk tinged indie sound with an intimate feel.
2019 saw Colie release her debut single ‘Sunday News’ through Triple J Unearthed and it was a featured entry in the 2020 Queensland Music Awards. She released her debut EP ‘Bug On A Lamplight’ later that year.
Colie has supported the likes of Lime Cordiale and Greta Stanley and played extensively throughout Queensland, including the Neck Of The Woods Music Festival and Woodfordia’s Festival of Small Halls.
2020 so far, despite unprecedented times, has seen Colie release a further two singles and her sophomore EP ‘Second Hand’. Shortly following the release of her second EP, Colie was announced as a Triple J Unearthed Level Up Grant winner, allowing her to level up her career with funds going towards her next single ‘Table for Two’.
Celebrating amazing local talent, the CoVibes series is a collab between local artists, agencies and the Imperial Hotel, and is proudly supported by the Queensland Government by Arts Queensland.
