Acclaimed songwriter Mckisko brings an intimate headline show to the Skukum Lounge. A unique and singular voice in Australian music, Mckisko balances dappled fragility with bright-lit imagery and clear-eyed intention. She has released two celebrated albums, 'Glorio' (2009) and 'Eximo' (2013), where shadows shift seamlessly, and solitary folk songs stretch and unfold into expansive dreamscapes before finding their way easily back to themselves.
For this one-off show, she will be previewing songs from her forthcoming third record, 'Southerly'. Following the mercurial movement of close and open water, 'Southerly' is a deeply luminous song-cycle. It is a record that drifts in and out with the tide, allowing the listener to be carried curiously along with it. 'Southerly' will be released on Little Lake Records in late 2018.
