+ BEN MASON & BAND + MADELINE DUKE (SOLO)
Longtime Darebin tunesmith, Tobias Hengeveld sings rare and valuable stories - swaying between local landscapes and otherworldly themes. Like a melodic Cormack McCarthy, Tobias plants honest narratives in the Australian psyche. His steady-burning 2014 release The Daylight Express is an acclaimed collection of rousing rock tunes, poignant riff-based reflections, and magnetic ballads.
The album was written during an artist residency at Brunswick Railway Station, then recorded and produced in Darebin with local artist Robbie Rowlands.
Gaining a nomination for The Age Music Victoria Genre Awards, Tobias and band went on to play a Falls Festival Lorne slot at the end of 2014. The Daylight Express live show continues to gather attention around town. For this Darebin Music Feast Show Tobias Hengeveld features songs from the album as well as sneak-peak at some fresh fodder for an upcoming new release.
