Heavenly Sounds presents
with special guests Vance Joy

JULIA STONE will be the first artist to perform under the HEAVENLY SOUNDS banner in 2013, bringing her haunting vocals and mesmerising performances to churches and cathedrals around Australia next February.

Julia's new solo album 'By The Horns' has been receiving rave reviews worldwide, her recent tours saw her captivating audiences in Europe, the UK and her sold out national tour here in Australia.

Described by Triple J Magazine as "emotionally fraught, stunningly beautiful, chilling and evocative," this collection of new songs is bound to give you goose bumps in the extraordinary live setting of historic churches and cathedrals.

Julia is looking forward to bringing her music to Heavenly Sounds unique venues next year "Always on tours when booked to play in an old church, which happens fairly frequently through Europe where many old churches now are converted into venues, we all get excited about the night. The room has a way of taking music and transforming it into something else - the walls carry the voices and the sounds - it's as though the building itself were a part of the sound... adding its own voice to the songs."

For these concerts, Julia will be touring with Ross Irwin (Cat Empire, The Bamboos), Ben Edgar and Ed Fairly (Gotye), who will all be playing a variety of instruments.

Julia explains, "The most exciting for me is that between the four of us, 3 of us play the trumpet - so it will make for some very sweet horn arrangements. From years of playing big band music through school I am so thrilled that I will be able to harmonise with other brass. All the boys sing beautifully so there will be lovely vocal arrangements that take the songs to more dreamy places."

Melbourne indie pop outfit Vance Joy will open proceedings on this HEAVENLY SOUNDS tour. Vance Joy has an original voice which at first he kept to himself. Feeding on a diet of The Pogues, Paul Kelly, and whatever else was playing, he cut his teeth performing at open mike nights in Melbourne. It is folk music with pop influences. Songs that grab you by the scruff of the neck and hold on for a moment.

Tickets for these very special shows will go on sale on Wednesday 5th December through Members of the Heavenly Sounds mailing list can access a pre-sale from Monday 3rd December - sign up via

Tickets cost $62.50 plus booking fees and all shows are open to all ages.
