MELBOURNE INDIE VOICES
SING SESSIONS

SATURDAY & SUNDAY

Melbourne Indie Voices is a new breed of community choir - non-traditional, frequently viral and thoroughly Australian.

Led by two indie musicians Phia and Josh The Cat, Melbourne Indie Voices has over 150 regular members spread over two nights as well as hosting special one-off Sing Sessions for everyone to get involved in.

Sophia Exiner (Phia) started Melbourne Indie Voices in February 2016 with producer/songwriter/guitarist Joshua Teicher as a weekly drop-in night in her front room in Fitzroy, in order to highlight the work of contemporary songwriters in a community singing environment.

Since forming in 2016 MIV has performed live on ABC 774, showcased at Melbourne Music Week 2016, been featured on ABC News Online, and performed for over 500 people at the Melbourne Museum for White Night 2018. MIV has performed onstage with iconic Australian artists Paul Kelly, Paul Dempsey (Something For Kate), Vika and Linda Bull, Ali Barter, Georgia Fields, Clare Bowditch, and coming up in November 2018; Jen Cloher.

Phia composes imaginative new choral arrangements for the project, and Josh contributes to the choir’s unique and non-traditional sound by accompanying them on electric guitar.

For this special BAM Sing Session, Phia and Josh will teach you a Melbourne Indie Voices song in one session - 3 part harmonies, no experience necessary, all welcome.
