Fremantle Arts Centre’s intimate winter music program Gallery Sessions returns each Thursday night in August. Each show features a double bill of Perth’s most talented songwriters performing up-close and stripped back in FAC’s Main Gallery and Pavlich Room. With a small, cosy crowd and the beautiful backdrop of artworks from our latest exhibition Panacea, Gallery Sessions is a unique and unforgettable return to live music.

Odette Mercy has a well-earned reputation as one of WA’s best live acts. Odette and her band are no strangers to life’s lessons and heartbreak. Entwined with a pervasive thread of social commentary, their songs are brutally honest and tell a personal story of love and life through soul-filled groove. Odette will perform as a duo for this show.

WA folk-pop chameleon Timothy Nelson is a fixture of WA’s music scene for good reason. You may have spotted him in one of his own band’s shows, through his pop solo project Indoor Fins or as a member of the Kill Devil Hills and Drapht’s touring band.  He’s got miles on the clock and the songs to match.

Gallery Sessions begins with a guided tour of Panacea before audiences take their seats for the cabaret style show of songs and stories. Enjoy a heartfelt set from one artist before moving to the other performance space and doing it all again for the second half of the show.

Please note that the audience will be split into two groups so purchase tickets together in Audience Group 1 or 2 to ensure you’re seated with your friends or family.
