We are stoked to kick off the Little Quirks 12 May concert with opening act, Melbourne’s Sadie Mustoe.
Sadie has been steadily putting together a very promising musical career and at 19yo, is a young veteran, with “years” of busking at folk festivals all around Australia, winning a swag of awards along the way. Most recently at Queenscliff Music Festival’s Foot-in-the-Door competition 2022 and Runner-up for Folk Alliance Australia’s ‘Youth Folk Artist of the Year’ 2021.
In 2020, Sadie took part in an international youth songwriting competition called Song Academy. It’s the leading songwriting platform for young people aged 8-18yo, with a focus on the craft of songwriting, creating lyrics and music. Sadie’s excellent song “A Million Hours” is one of 26 songs featured on Song Academy’s 2020 compilation album.
She is described as a modern-day storyteller who takes audiences on a journey as seen through the eyes of a Melbourne teenager. Featuring a unique and captivating voice, her folk-pop songs are gripping and personal.
Arts Rutherglen’s Scott Landells has been following Sadie’s progress for a while and describes her as a prodigious talent. “I fondly recall a 14yo Sadie taking the stage at Chiltern’s gorgeous, iconic Star Theatre on Australia Day 2018 in support of a Canadian touring group Belle Miners. Back then she played and released music under the name “Sadie Girl On The Hill”. Sadie confidently delivered a set of captivating original songs. In those intervening 5 years, Sadie re-branded a little and now releases her music simply as Sadie Mustoe. She is unsurprisingly pursuing music studies at Melbourne Uni and is a very exciting talent.” You can check out some of Sadie’s recent releases such as Open My Eyes and Midnight on Spotify and Triple J Unearthed.
Doors open 6:00pm, Music from 7:15pm.
