The seven-date run will see both artists performing in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Maroochydore, Melbourne, Castlemaine and Ballarat. Tickets are on sale now.
Though touring plans (and an SXSW slot for Skye) were disrupted last year, both artists kept fairly busy throughout 2020. Elizabeth released a deluxe edition of debut album ‘The Wonderful World of Nature’, including a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Go Your Own Way’.
Last year also saw Skye release singles ‘Grand Ideas’ and ‘Stay in Bed’. Both will feature on the Wergaia/Wemba Wemba songwriter’s forthcoming, Jen Cloher-produced album ‘I Feel Better But I Don’t Feel Good’. More recently, she has released her latest album single, ‘Party Tricks’, and covered Cub Sport’s ‘Come On Mess Me Up’ for triple j’s Like A Version.
Both artists have also performed regularly since the return of live music in Australia. Skye has played a headline show at the Corner in Melbourne and supported the Avalanches at their Sidney Myer Music Bowl gig.
Skye also went on tour with Midnight Oil earlier this year in support of the band’s ‘Makarrata Project’ album, contributing vocals for the album track ‘Terror Australia’. In August, she will be performing at the 2021 Darwin Festival.
Elizabeth, meanwhile, has featured on a number of festival lineups in recent months, appearing as part of Brunswick Music Festival, Meadow, Inward Goods Festival and Small Town, Big Sound.
