One of Australia’s finest live performers Lior, supported by Melbourne based Indie Folk singer songwriter Domini Forster, will deliver an unforgettable performance at Sunshine Coast Council’s Lake Kawana Community Centre on Saturday, July 12 at 7.30pm.
Lior burst on to the Australian music scene in 2005 with his stunning debut album - Autumn Flow. Recorded and released entirely independently, and spearheaded by This Old Love and subsequent singles Daniel and Autumn Flow, the album became one of the most successful independent debuts in Australian history. A swag of accolades followed, amongst them three Aria nominations (including Best Male Artist), as well as Triple J’s prestigious ‘J Award’ nomination for Album of the Year.
Subsequent releases Corner of an Endless Road, (2008) and Tumbling into the Dawn’(2010) were also a huge success, debuting at #2 on the Australian Albums chart and topping the Independent charts for several weeks, as well as earning the gifted songwriter a further three Aria nominations.
In 2013 Lior worked with renowned composer and conductor Nigel Westlake to produce the album Compassion which premiered at the Sydney Opera House and debuted at number One on the classical music charts.
In complete musical contrast, 2012 had ended with Lior receiving The Screen Writer Song of the Year Award for his much-loved children’s song Lullaby commissioned by the ABC for Giggle and Hoot.
His latest album Scattered Reflections was released earlier this year and is a collection of songs written throughout his travels over the past few years.
Lior is known for his dynamic and moving performances, and has earned a reputation as one of Australia’s finest live performers. He is part of a rare breed of artists that has achieved a great degree of success and critical acclaim, while maintaining an independence and individuality in their craft.
