Cornerstone w/ Debra Byrne
“I am thrilled to have formed the band CORNERSTONE with Dion Hirini on guitar Chris Paraha on bass, Vashti Sevill on keyboard and Nick Karasavvidis on drums and me on lead vocals”says Debra Byrne. “The name CORNERSTONE epitomises what music has been and always will be for me. It’s the experience that brings me joy, friendship, love and emotional and mental stability. Music, and especially singing, is my yoga. Twenty years ago, Dion, Chris and I played together at the Zbar in Prahran on Sunday afternoons. Those sessions sparked the beginning of a freedom and camaraderie I had not felt before and I have longed to return to the musical genre where I feel most at home and most myself”.
CORNERSTONE marks a return to that home with songs from The Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, Steely Dan, Michael McDonald and James Taylor.
Showcasing their lyrical purity and sensitive instrumental arrangements, Hive Park traverses musical boundaries with its blend of rock riffs and pared-back folk. Comparisons never quite hit the mark, but vocalist Cassie Serpell’s mellifluous tones instantly evoke Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorn.
Multi-platinum winning producer Jimi Maroudas who recorded Hive Park’s debut album “things we should have said” recalls he was “blown away by the intimacy and depth of the material… these stories are not only strong and beautiful – they need to be told.”
