The Saddest Songs in the Universe.

Home grown singer-songwriters Julia Deans and Sean James Donnelly invite you to come and wallow in a selection of some of their most treasured sad songs.

Casting their ears over the last 50 years of musical sorrow to pluck a song or three from the world’s greatest misery merchants, Julia and Sean will also play songs of sadness from their own back catalogues, plus brand new laments wrought especially for the occasion.

There will be tears of laughter, tears of woe… along with many guitars, synthesisers and mysterious musical objects. Expect to sniff, to sob, to complain bitterly about your lot in life, but also to know that you’re not alone in your despair.

Hear melodies glum and glorious, harmonies of heartbreak and hurt… all in service of the downhearted, the disconsolate and the damned. Come join the beautiful losers.

“Deans' expressive, pure voice and Donnelly's uncanny ability to create sympathetic soundscapes with just a few notes, somehow combined to give beauty to songs full of yearning, regret and missed opportunities.” - Otago Daily Times
