Cash Savage released the concert record ‘Live at Hamer Hall’ this month, recorded at the Arts Centre in Melbourne to no audience during the peak of the city’s coronavirus restrictions.

The singer-songwriter told NME in an interview that the pandemic weighed heavily on the performance.

“At first I was bummed because I’ve always wanted to play Hamer Hall with people in it,” Savage said.

“Then I woke up the next day feeling lucky we had a show to do. I did enjoy the silver lining of not having the pressure to sell any tickets…Everything felt ominous at the time, the Black Lives Matter movement was a real thing for us and still is. There was a lot of civil unrest around.”
