With his repertoire as a recording artist, soundtrack composer, producer, lyricist, uniquely Australian songwriter and singer, as well as a specialist in the music of Melanesia, Bridie has certainly stamped his mark.

A founding member and songwriter of critically acclaimed musical groups Not Drowning Waving and My Friend The  Chocolate Cake whose success both in Australia and across the world is well documented, Bridie has also released a number of albums under his own moniker with the 2002 “Act of Free Choice” being released in the UK, Canada and America as well as Australia.

Live: Pikelet


Having shared stages with the likes of Ariel Pink, Dirty Projectors and Shellac and appearing at festivals like Golden Plains, Laneway, Mona Foma and Melbourne International Arts Festival, Melbourne synth-pop four piece Pikelet return in 2013 with their third album Calluses.
 
Calluses follows on from their Australian Music Prize-shortlisted 2010 album Stem, and 2007 solo debut Pikelet. The band began as a solo project mid last decade for Melbourne musician Evelyn Morris, and has progressed in bold, inquisitive steps since becoming a fully-fledged live band in 2009, with the addition of drummer Matthew Cox (Witch Hats), synth wizard Shags Chamberlain (Lost Animal) and bassist/guitarist Tarquin Manek (Bum Creek).
 
Following their performance at NGV’s Monet’s Garden until midnight, Pikelet tour Calluses nationally in September & October.
