Abby Dobson is back!

April 19 will be Abby Dobson’s first performance in Melbourne since fronting Leonardo’s Bride, and it promises to be very special.

Abby Dobson formed the band Leonardo’s Bride with Dean Manning in 1992. After releasing several independent EPs, in 1997 they released their critically acclaimed debut LP Angel Blood which achieved gold sales as did their hugely popular single, ‘Even When I’m Sleeping’ – which also won the APRA ‘Song of the Year’ award. In 2000, they released their second album, Open Sesame and decided to split indefinitely at the end of that year to the surprise of their many fans.

Abby has since collaborated with other musicians, including working with Paul Mac on his album 3000 Feet High, which went gold, releasing the single ‘gonna miss you’ and contributing to his second album The Panic Room and touring the country extensively. She was also invited to contribute new songs for special television episodes of ‘The Secret Life of Us’ and the soundtrack albums. Her songs, ‘I’m Not Missing You’ and ‘Don’t Ask for More’, received widespread radio play.

Using April 19 to showcase songs from her highly anticipated new album Rise Up, due for release later this year, Abby has put together a new Melbourne band for the show. Plus there’s a special guest appearance from Paul Mac on the Wurlitzer. A limited edition EP sampler called Stealing Sunshine will also be available only at the show.

Don’t miss your chance to catch Abby Dobson at Northcote Social Club on April 19.
