Julie Byrne Announces 2024 Australian Tour

Singer-songwriter Julie Byrne will bring her new album The Greater Wings to Australia early next year. The New York-based artist will play a handful of shows in Australia, first in Sydney as part of Sydney Festival in mid-January, and then two shows in Victoria later in the month.

Byrne will play two shows at Sydney Festival on Wednesday, 17th January, and Friday, 19th January, followed by the Darebin Arts Centre on Wednesday, 24th January, and finally Theatre Royal in Castlemaine on Thursday, 25th January. See all dates and grab tickets below.

Julie Byrne: ‘Summer Glass’

The Greater Wings, released in July, is Byrne’s third album and follows her breakout 2017 record Not Even Happiness. The Greater Wings began to take form in early 2020, Byrne working alongside her longtime creative partner Eric Littmann. But tragedy would strike a year later when Littmann died at the age of 31.

The album sat on the shelves for a number of months before Byrne returned to finish it, and the resulting record is informed by the loss.

“Grieving, in my experience, isn’t just sorrow,” Byrne told The Guardian earlier this year. “I’ve heard it described as a motivational state, a state of yearning. The record does contain grief but it’s so much more about life and memorial, what it really means to count on someone. There’s a lot of unending love there that was clear before and it’s perhaps even more clear now.”
