June 10th Helium debut performance at the Velvet Lounge with special guest Troy Roberts
Helium combines the talents of Western Australian musicians Daniel Susnjar- drums, Harry Mitchell-organ and Jeremy Thomson- guitar to deliver high-energy original music influenced by a wide variety of sources including contemporary jazz and traditional Afro-Peruvian rhythms.
All 3 musicians have recently earned national accolades, with Susnjar winning 2 Australian Jazz Bell Awards in 2015 for his debut album Su Su Nje, Mitchell winning the 2014 Toyota scholarship and Thomson being selected as a finalist for the 2014 Australian National Jazz Awards.
Presenting a fresh new sound in Australian music, Helium aims to push the organ trio format into exciting and unchartered musical territories. For this debut performance, they welcome acclaimed NYC-based saxophonist Troy Roberts as their special guest artist.
