Make Way For Love / MARLON WILLIAMS with The Impossible Orchestra

Australian Premiere/Festival Exclusive

as part of Supersense: Festival of the Ecstatic


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, 9 JULY 2019 – In his first ever Australian performance supported by a live orchestra, New Zealand's Marlon Williams will take to the Hamer Hall stage on Friday 23 August as part of Supersense: Festival of the Ecstatic for one special night of music in Make Way For Love / MARLON WILLIAMS with The Impossible Orchestra.

The Impossible Orchestra is an ensemble specifically brought together to complement Williams' song writing style, led by Brett Kelly, one of Australia's leading conductors. This hand-picked collection of the country's best musicians – many current or past members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Melbourne Symphony Orchestra – will join Williams and his band The Yarra Benders as they span his award-winning catalogue.

Williams possesses one of the greatest voices of his generation. His effortlessly, distinctive tone and affecting vibrato have garnered widespread love around the world, and made him a household name since his Hollywood debut in A Star is Born.

The past year has seen Williams on a stellar career ascent from singing duets with Florence Welch and Lorde to winning New Zealand's most coveted awards for Album of the Year and Song of the Year. His deeply personal second album Make Way for Love is taking him around the world selling out venues every night.
