Lily Morris, Jim Dusty, and Drive Safe to welcome in the second Sounds from the Suburbs show


Homegrown Sounds is proud to present Sounds from the Suburbs - our new series of all ages live music gigs, showcasing the best in local music in the heart of Canberra’s inner-north suburbs.


Returning Sunday 21st February, Gang Gang Cafe will see Lily Morris, Jim Dusty, and Drive Safe perform exciting new sets in a warm and intimate setting for eager local music lovers.


Braidwood's best Lily Morris has been in and around the scene for a number of years now, and blew us all away with the release of her debut solo single 'Grand Illusions' in August last year. Since having Lily at a Homegrown Sounds show one year ago, we've been eager to have her back since, and this time she's returning with her full band.



Jim Dusty is the first who comes to mind when we think of Canberra music. His often experimental take on the indie folk genre marks Jim as one of the most memorable and iconic performers in the territory. Last year Jim released Perpetual Customer, his lo-fi EP that embodies what we know and love about Jim Dusty.



Drive Safe is the new project from Gavin Styles, who made the big move to Canberra from Melbourne at the start of last year, and quickly set themselves out to release their solo material. As their name suggests, Drive Safe's music feels warm and comforting, and it's why we've been eager to have Gavin play one of our shows since meeting them last year.
