Ella Fence & Will Anderson headline the Live at Bond 2017 concert series finale.
This double-header event will kick off at 3pm with Will Anderson, followed by Ella Fence & band.
20 year old Will Anderson blends earthy roots of the didgeridoo, acoustic guitar, and harmonica with percussion to create a soulful and original sound. He’s a talented multi-instrumentalist originally from Mackay, now living on the Gold Coast, who plays over 6 instruments at once – his unique sound could be compared to a mashup of Matt Corby, Chet Faker and Xavier Rudd.
Will’s talent has seen him supporting the The Cat Empire, Busby Marou and Kingswood. He drew national recognition after winning the Telstra Road to Discovery 2015 People’s Choice Award. He went on to be named runner up in Queensland Music’s Most Promising Male Songwriter (2016), followed by appearances at the Caloundra Music Festival, Caxton Street Festival and Bluesfest.
His debut single, Notions earned him Triple J airplay after topping the Unearthed charts. He continues to receive notable accolades, and has the music industry on their edge of their seats waiting to see what he offers next. Check out Notions here.
Born and raised on the Gold Coast, and having studied at both Griffith and Bond University, singer-songwriter Ella Fence is one talented human.
This multi-award winning musician approaches her craft with passion and authenticity. Working within the genre of cinematic folk/pop, Ella has toured the US, Canada, Europe and the UK, where she recorded her critically acclaimed Wanderlust EP at the renowned Brighton Electric Studios with producer Dan Swift (Snow Patrol, Passenger). She later recorded the B-side track with Ken Stringfellow (REM, The Posies) in Paris. Since Wanderlust, Ella has returned to the UK and worked with Grammy Award winner Terry Britten (who has written with Tina Turner, Cliff Richard, Olivia Newton-John and Michael Jackson) and several other industry heavyweights.
Ella Fence is an alluring and captivating multi-instrumentalist fast emerging as one of Australia’s best new talents. She was a Grant McLennan Fellowship Finalist in 2015, with musical theatre as a point of difference, performing key roles in Jesus Christ Superstar followed by playing the lead in Snow White, a collaboration between Opera Queensland, La Boite Theatre Company and the Brisbane Festival.
Ella is a little cloud with a lot of lightning. You don’t want to miss this jetsetter’s new work. Check out her Gold Coast Music Awards Video of the Year and Song of the Year, Unknown Water
