Angie McMahon announces global livestream piano concert with Jensen McRae

First time's the charm, second is better!

Following the success of her original solo piano concert live stream, Melbourne singer-songwriter Angie McMahon is hosting a global rescreening.

The rescreening celebrates the upcoming release of McMahon’s ‘Piano Salt’ EP.

This time, McMahon will also welcome 22-year-old LA native, Jensen McRae – performing solo with her guitar – as the night’s special guest.

McRae is a biracial black and Jewish woman who has grown up predominantly in white spaces. Jensen’s music explores aspects of identity, race, gender, depression and unrequited love. She is currently working on her debut album with Grammy Award-winning producer, Rahki (Eminem, Kendrick Lamar).

Elements of Angie’s riveting, stripped-down companion piece to last year’s debut album Salt were recorded during this online concert. 

McMahon says of the concert, “Piano is the first instrument I learnt and the one that made me first love singing… the concert and EP feels like a return to my piano-cover-loving inner kid.”

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.

Angie McMahon Livestream Performance

McMahon will perform stripped-back, reimagined 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.

Angie McMahon will perform her solo piano concert livestreamon Wednesday 7 October, with special guest Jensen McRae. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.com.au
