Tinpan Orange (Australia)
In 2012, critically acclaimed Australian folk-pop darlings, Tinpan Orange released Over the Sun, an album singer-songwriter Emily Lubitz refers to as “the greatest album of my life.” Months later, just to pay the bills, Lubitz sang the anonymous lead vocal on an Australian train safety commercial that became the viral internet sensation Dumb Ways To Die. 45 million YouTube hits later, Tinpan Orange is touring the world, slightly bewildered and keen to set their creative record straight. Imagine Edith Piaf in the body of Mrs. Jessica Rabbit, twirling her hair out across a complex and original musical creation in which virtuosic instrumental performances and intimate songwriting merge to form a wholly unique sound. Fresh from a national Australian tour with Martha Wainwright, Tinpan Orange is excited to return to Canada following their 2012 tour with The Cat Empire.
