For those of you who aren't familiar...Nestled in a heritage-listed courtyard in the heart of the CBD, you'll find The Garden Stage at Since I Left You. For one Saturday afternoon every second month, this enchanting space hosts The SILY Sessions; a series of intimate boutique music events showcasing a diverse mix of musical talent. But this isn't just your average gig. The crowd enjoys access to the famous SILY Antipasti Table and cocktail specials all day. The industrial courtyard is styled up as a tropical oasis, and the musicians don't sound like they usually do. You see, noise and capacity restrictions (max. 50 people) dictate everything at SILY, so the performers are forced to step outside their comfort zones and create stripped-back sets to suit the space.

Think experimental arrangements of favourites, exclusive new material those songs you would normally never hear live, and inventive acoustic covers. This month we have the soulful vocals of Esmé who is debuting her EP a collaboration of songs written by herslef and Royce Wood Junior (NAO, Jamie Woon).  She draws upon influences from the speakeasy era, with her inflections, breathy tone and narrow vibrato, reminiscent of Erykah Badu. Each one of her songs is personalised with artistic production work, painting a colourful picture in audio as her voice floats above broken hip hop inspired beats, swelling synths, orchestral movements and deep melodic bass lines. Her music leans into the electro acoustic realm alongside artists such as Charlotte Cardin, Jordan Rakei, Billie Eillish and Sabrina Claudio.  Supporting Esmé, is Billsbry, a Sydney based musician.

He started out experimenting with psychedelic ambient music, and his sound has progressively evolved incorporating soul, jazz and funk in his repertoire. Billsbry showcases his unique blend of these genres using an electric guitar, loop pedal, sample pad and acoustic percussion to craft his original songs through multi-textured layering.  Grab a ticket and enjoy an afternoon of antipasit, live local music and big vibes.
