In late 2020, select nominees of the Music Victoria Awards were given the opportunity for a paid and professionally filmed livestream event, thanks to funding from the Victorian Government’s Victoria Together Program.
These live-streamed concerts will provide a valuable income and promotional stream for the nine lucky recipients, along with providing income and networks to the crew behind the scenes.
Each Tuesday over the past 9 weeks, Music Victoria has introduced you to a new award-nominated artist, via live performances filmed at some of Victoria’s most iconic music venues, exclusively for Victoria Together.
Music Victoria presents Elizabeth – Live at Corner Hotel, Richmond
Presented by Music Victoria
Still and Video Production by Semiconductor Media
Stepping into her sound like a silk robe, Elizabeth is the patron saint of sad girls on her debut record, The Wonderful World of Nature (nominated for Best Album at the 2020 Music Victoria Awards). Elizabeth is a glamorous tragic, a queer pop anti-heroine holding a curtain of glittering melodies over ugly truths. Casting herself as the antagonist wielding pop songs as weapons, she wipes away her running mascara and escapes a destruction of her own making. This debutante divorcée has traded in her white veil for a cocktail and concocted a collection of shimmering heartbreak bangers that celebrate the femme and her indulgent indiscretions. In facing the futility of holding onto something that’s already slipped out of her grasp, Elizabeth has created a new kind of heartbreak album.
Catch a teaser of Elizabeth's set below and catch up on the other concerts on Victoria Together's website.
Elizabeth – Live at Corner Hotel, Richmond is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria
