On the eve of the Secret Garden Festival, The Trouble with Templeton’s Thomas Calder teams up with D.D Dumbo and Maples for an intimate night in the Danceteria!
Thomas Calder is the singler/songwriter from Brisbane’s “The Trouble With Templeton”. He’s taking some time out from his busy band schedule to play a special intimate solo show for the folks of Sydney, trying out some new songs and playing some old favourites from both “Bleeders” and “Rookie”. The Trouble With Templeton have just been signed to seminal UK Indie label Bella Union, who also signed Fleet Foxes, Beach House and Midlake among others. This announcement follows a huge 18 months for the band that saw them release “Rookie” to rave reviews across Australia, tour extensively here plus 40 dates across the US and UK!
Joining Thomas is an exciting new act from Castlemaine, Victoria – D.D Dumbo. D.D’s debut release is a five-track self-titled EP, which is aptly described as ‘experimental blues loop pop’. His lead single ‘Tropical Oceans’ has already made its mark on numerous blogs around the world, including Line of Best Fit, Abeano, The Guardian and NME.
Sydney songstress Gabby Huber, aka Maples, is last to join the lineup. Huber has spent several years crafting her sound. Stepping out into the world as Maples, she blends acoustic and electronic worlds with soaring vocals and keyboards. Maples is inspired by change, life’s only constant, and the illumination drawn from undiscovered places deep within the soul.
