Inner-Soul #2 **LIVE SOUL MUSIC** [TUESDAY – 25.02.2014]
After an incredible first show, displaying some of Sydney’s finest live musicians, the team is back with more fresh talent on display
What is INNERSOUL LIVE @ PLAY BAR going to be all about?
Innersoul Live is an exclusively secured event space for people in the Entertainment Industry to come in, enjoy, relax, and most of all appreciate good music.
Our entertainer’s are carefully selected to cater for the strict genres of music we are going to be blasting week after week. Only giving gratitude and thanks to the origins and classics of our times, with everything from Aretha Franklin to Jodeci, Jill Scott to Marvin Gaye and J Dilla to John Legend, without forgetting such classics as Bob Marley to RUN DMC.
Our aim is to take you way back to the sweet sound of soul, incorporating that with the funky sound of reggae and transitioning to the best beats of Rhythm and Blues, at a venue that is engulfed with the atmosphere and culture that urban music today, in Australia, has been aching for.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE…
Unlike our competition in the industry, our unique purpose will not only be to support a newly flourishing culture, but to also play a key role in it’s development and evolution.
We wish to provide the urban music community, here in Sydney, with a venue and event that will provide a platform for all members of this culture to meet, greet and showcase the love they have for the art.
From Live performances on a bi-weekly basis from Sydney’s raw unseen talent, collaboration events, bringing the arts, such as photography & street art (Graffiti) together as well as Web designers, publicists, managers, musicians, producers and all industry heads, bringing forth our own family of dynamic individuals into the one space simply for the unconditional love we all have for our Roots and what we see is possible for our future.
So come down and lets celebrate for the past, for the present and for all that’s to come in our future’s.

Billie McCarthy //
Billie McCarthy is a country girl who took the jazz bus to the city and had a dirty love affair in a back lane with Neo Soul.
Billie McCarthy is a unique smoky brew of jazz diva, soul songstress, folk balladeer and cabaret comedienne.
Resonating with Billie Holiday, Jill Scott, Joni Mitchell and Blossom Dearie.
The result is a soulful, edgy and intimate music which transfixes the audience with her passion, presence and style.
Hailing from Tamworth , and the daughter of country and blues musicians . As an infant Billie had absorbed her mothers eclectic vinyl collection. It was little surprise she was singing Sophie Tucker blues at 3 and writing to Dolly Parton at 6.
Billie is now one of Sydney’s most popular singers and workshop presenters. She has collaborated with several international and local acts including New Soul sensation ‘Omar’ and hip hop legend ‘Charli 2na’.
Billie has been seen at Java Soul Nation Festival (Jakarta) , Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival, Brisbane Festival, Moorambilla Festival , Woodford Folk Festival, Sydney Festival and on ABC Classic FM.
DANIEL MARCH //
It is about the song.
Not about playing guitar, not about singing incredible runs in perfect pitch; but about getting a message out there and only a good song can do this to its full capacity. I wanna bring about change and relativity to peoples lives, in my art through the vehicle of music, to anyone who has ears to listen.
