Gig Information

Join Americana artists Matt Joe Gow, Melissa & The Dr and Jo Little for a Songwriters In The Round session. The four artists will take the stage together to share their own unique methods to songwriting. Discussing songs from their catalogues and guesting on each others music.

Audience interaction is welcomed and the musicians will be open to answering questions. The show be part of Matt’s final New Zealand tour before heading back across the Tasman to finish his new album.

Matt Joe Gow
From Day On The Green festival to boutique Americana festivals, from supporting Chris Isaak to Marlon Williams, Matt Joe Gow has built a simmering credibility to go alongside the authentic Alt. Country tones. After a guest lecture at Otago University on this very subject – songwriting, and with his second consecutive Music Victoria Nomination winning the award for Best Country Album for ‘Break, Rattle And Roll’, critically acclaimed New Zealand born troubadour Matt Joe Gow brings his soulful sound back home where it all began for him.

Melissa & The Dr
Take two keen country music aficionados from two different countries, generations and stylistic leanings, season with lead and harmony vocals reminiscent of Emmylou and Gram, Dolly and Porter, Tammy and George, add a dash of musical chemistry and you have the duo that is Melissa Partridge and Dr Twang (Hyram Twang).
Both have years of performing experience under their hats, that is if they wore hats. Together they play a collection of stripped down classic country duets as well as alt-country and Americana tunes – some sweet, some bittersweet, some downright tragic – all delivered with feeling and style.

Jo Little
Is a singer-songwriter from Dunedin in the deep south. Little delivers her own style of road-worn, slow burning, folk-country effortlessly and has toured NZ and Australia many times over including shows in the UK. Her delicately crafted songs are like photo albums of her memories. Jo’s first EP release was ‘A Short Burst Of Hot’ in 2009 with her band Midnight Kitchen. In 2012 she released a solo album ‘Till The Blue Skies Come’. Both are available on Bandcamp and Spotify. An eagerly anticipated EP ‘Otherside’ is now in post production and is due to be released in 2021.
