He's dropped a new single, announced a new EP, and now he's (virtually) touring the world
This month Melbourne singer-songwriter Angie McMahon was set to kick off her first headline band shows across the UK and Europe before spending some time in Ireland to write and explore.
When that trip was cancelled she didn’t slow down, instead, McMahon rallied to raise funds for Support Act – collecting a whopping $50,000 to help music workers in need of financial support due to the industry’s shut down.
With touring still halted, McMahon is turning her attention to the digital world. Later this month she will be premiering a live-streamed solo piano concert.

McMahon will performing stripped-back, remagined piano versions of songs from her debut album Salt, as well as a selection of covers (we’re still thinking about her Isol-Aid cover of The National’s ‘Pink Rabbits’ and all the tears we cried). As an added bonus, the concert will also give fans the first chance to hear a new song from McMahon.
The special online piano concert was filmed at The Perch Recording Studio in Castlemaine. The regional Victorian studio has been adapted to allow for a solo artist to record in an isolated setting that abides by social distancing rules.
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Clothing The Gap’s ‘Free the Flag Campaign’ in a bid to fight to free the Aboriginal flag from its current licensing and see Aboriginal people have equal rights and access to their flag.
“[The Aboriginal flag] is the only national flag in the WORLD that is copyrighted. The flag should belong to the people, to the culture, it is a symbol of pride and strength and not a corporate logo.
“This campaign wants the Aboriginal flag to be treated like every other recognized national flag. Let’s be part of the movement that changes this,” McMahon said in an Instagram post.
