Perfect Tripod’s Australian Songs is a breathtaking harmony-pop experience from four of the most gloriously warm and seasoned voices that ever entwined across this wide brown land.
Take the alternately rib-tickling and tear-jerking giants of Melbourne’s live musical comedy scene, add the peerless vocal and arranging skills of one-man showbiz powerhouse Eddie Perfect, turn them loose on the Great Australian Songbook, and let those neck hairs run free. http://www.facebook.com/PerfectTripod
Perfect Tripod found its genesis in the smoke and feathers of Melbourne’s Famous Spiegeltent, where Eddie and Tripod first performed Paul Kelly’s a capella psalm Meet Me In the Middle of the Air to a rapt cabaret audience. It was described by Kelly himself as “stunning”.
In 2013, the new band of brothers expanded the idea into a touring show, Australian Songs, spanning the breadth of our best-loved music from Aussie Crawl to Clare Bowditch, leading to ecstatic reviews and standing ovations.
“You’d be hard pressed to find four more versatile voices in the country...A wonderfully balanced tone of gravitas and comedy.” themusic.com.au
“A first-rate musical and mirth delivery from some of Australia’s best performers... The singing is beautiful. The comedy is irreverent Aussie gold.” Theatre People
