What's an OXJAM?

This week, we here at Forest Falls HQ caught wind of a pretty amazing venture by Oxfam that you might want to know about. Might want to know about? SHOULD know about! Check it out below - we're sure you're going to love it.

Friends, OXJAM has finally hit Australian shores! This August, Oxfam and Musicians from all around Australian will join forces to help end poverty. And it all begins in your lounge room.

Join thousands of other music lovers and music makers to either host your own gig, hit the stage or get your party on. We agree with Oxfam: saving the world has never sounded so good! All the details are below. 

And who knows... if you have an idea of how you might like to get Forest Falls involved, why not drop us a line?

PARLOUR: Forest Falls in your lounge room

And here it is! We're so proud to present to you the footage that the wonderful folks at Parlour shot of us at our very own Parlour show on Sunday 19 July. As Lucy recounts:

"Preparing for a Parlour gig is equal parts excitement and slight trepidation; especially as an artist/host. Exposing your art to a willing and gorgeously quiet audience in the raw intimacy of your own lounge room is confronting, yes, but it’s also incredibly rewarding. It gives a sparkling new life to your work, presenting it in the very context in which it was born: your own space. It was an experience my band, Forest Falls will look to recreate in the future.

On the day of the gig, we decked out the lounge room in fairy lights and got the mulled wine happening on the stove. Our aim was to invite people to experience the space as their own; to feel comfortable and relaxed and have a simple night in.

Matt and the Parlour crew were spectacular to work with. They helped us shape the experience to our liking and sell it as a concert, with creative control and the modest but ultimately very welcome profits landing almost entirely in the hands of the artist. Parlour’s approach is a rare but welcome addition to the music industry; there’s no “middle man” and as a host/artist you’re charged with the exciting responsibility of creating an experience for your audience, which is exactly what we're born to do anyway."

JULY WRAP-UP

What a month it was... Finders Keepers Markets at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Victoria, a Parlour gig in a lounge room in leafy Armadale, and pre-production started for - you guessed it - another EP. We're so excited to show you our new work, but all in good time.

Thanks to Gail Hislop at #thrumylens photography for the shot of Lucy at Finders Keepers (you can see it in the News & Updates section of our homepage).

A WINTER TREAT: FOREST FALLS COMING TO A HOME NEAR YOU!

When we think Winter, we think mulled wine, pastries, fairy lights home cooking and... music! What else? We're about to do exactly that: on Sunday 19 July, we bring the music to you with a special and very intimate set in a beautiful Melbourne home. 

Dubbed the AirBnB of gigging, Parlour connects musicians and hosts to create a cosy venue for an intimate performance for a lucky few. Don't miss your chance to be part of this very special Winter event!

And here's another Winter warmer for you: this is a great way to support us directly as artists, because a huge percentage of the very reasonable door price goes directly to us to fund our next tour and release.

For privacy reasons, the location will be announced the day before so please remember to include your email when making the purchase. The home is located in the leafy inner suburbs of Melbourne and very easily accessible by public transport (ca.20 mins from CBD, door to door!)

We can't wait to share this experience with you. Tickets are available by PRESALE ONLY from THIS LINK.

Get your mates involved. We'd love to see you there.
