Alice Night & Jesse Witney


Sat 02nd December 2023, 7:30 PM - 10:30 PM


21 Queen St
Murwillumbah NSW 2484


Join Northern Rivers based artists Alice Night and Jesse Witney for a unique co-headline event that will be sure to nourish you in ways you didn’t even know you needed. 


Alice Night is a candid singer-songwriter and performer likely to make you laugh, cry or both. She delivers soul-stirring songs alongside entertaining off-the-cuff banter. Alice has won the hearts of many over the last ten years of recording, releasing and touring original folk music. 

This November she’s touring the east coast to launch the first singles ‘Peace Now’ & ‘Eventually’ from her upcoming album ‘Wild Ivy.’ For this launch she will perform ‘folk songs, joke songs & bespoke songs’ at intimate venues from the Sunshine Coast to Melbourne. Most of this material has not been heard or seen before and is a celebration of the Weirdo Alice and the weirdo in us all. 

Expect outfit changes, character play, cuss words, poignant, provocative and playful assessments of reality, fake pop songs and authentic folk songs, (and odd mergings of the two,) all woven together into a night of expression through song. There is an aliveness to Alice’s stage presence that means that no two shows are ever quite the same. 

Alice offers her audiences an oasis for feelings and contemplation, while singing songs that dip seamlessly between the mundane and the profound. Her vocal tone is both soothing and evocative as it draws out the truth in the room. 


‘brings tears to my eyes every time’

‘an unapologetic realness’

‘I was instantly struck by her warm wonderful voice’

‘thrilling to witness’

‘I’ve never heard a voice so honest’

‘saucy, poetic & real’

‘healing, reassuring & empowering’

‘oddly funny’


Jesse Witney was one of those kids you see on groovy parents’ shoulders at festivals. His family has a strong musical pedigree, with both his parents being musicians and festival producers of the Imbil Folk festival for over 15 years. His older brother Matty Witney, who he performs with, in the Brothers Witney, is currently a Chicago resident musician. 

Jesse started singing at an early age, with obvious talent. At 13 years he picked up a bass guitar and helped form the punk band, ‘Better than Britney’, by 16 years old he was winning music competitions, including the “George Hoya Tribute Award’, and getting a name for himself in the surf-music scene. 

He moved to Lismore to study guitar performance at Southern Cross University with Jim Kelly. One day Doug de Vries, the leading exponent of Brazilian guitar in Australia, gave a lecture about Brazilian guitar music, and “a light came on” and Jesse began to study Brazilian music with a passion. By 20 years old he had learned the language. By 21 years old was in Brazil, gigging as much as possible across the country and recording with a plethora of Brazilian talents, including Producer – Marcelo Müller. 

His deep appreciation and immersion into the Brazilian tradition have been a constant in his musical journey and infuses his music with a spicy edge. His debut album of originals, Animal Cities, is out now.
