Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham
Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham (of The Waifs), have a collective haul of Golden Guitars, ARIA Awards, multi-platinum album sales and extensive touring over nearly three decades that serves as a readymade definition of success.
But success can be defined in many ways and when the irresistible forces of music and love brought Felicity and Josh together, something wildly successful and truly special was set in motion.
When they accepted an invitation to join “The Song Club” (a creative collective that tasked members with writing a song a week to a prompt) they were just looking to be productive during lockdown and push themselves beyond the comfort zone.
The experience proved to be a lifeline to creativity and community during a challenging year, but in time Felicity became not just a fellow song club member to Josh, but a muse. Identifying herself in many of his weekly offerings, she decided the only thing to do was invite him over more frequently for cups of tea, so she could get to the bottom of why he was writing songs about her and explore writing songs together.
Fast forward and The Song Club has spawned a story of inspiring beauty, a family and an eleven-track album, appropriately titled The Song Club.
The Song Club debuted at #1 on the ARIA Country Album Charts and #10 on the ARIA Album Chart.
These accolades reflect the unique chemistry created by the pair. Joyous and uncontrived, their music translates seamlessly from album to stage with masterful musicianship providing the perfect vehicle to transport their exquisite song writing directly to the heart.
The pairing is unexpected, the songs unforgettable and the aura unique. Untainted by the demands of what’s fashionable, Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham are able to unpretentiously be who and what they are in a way that description cannot capture and experience alone can convey. Their song Club story and sound is arrestingly beautiful and quite unlike anything else.
