ANYBODY who attended Dashville Skyline last weekend knows Tori Forysth delivered one of the moments of the festival when she performed a rousing version of Audioslave’s Show Me How To Live.
While nobody could ever accuse Chris Cornell’s heavy rock outfit of ever delving into alt-country territory, their music left an important impression of Forysth.
The Kurri Kurri gothic country songstress revealed after her Saturday set that it was the first time she had performed the cover live and she credited Audioslave with making her fall even deeper in love with music.
“I’ve never been so nervous to sing a song but it’s an iconic moment I wanted to note,” Forsyth said.
“I also added a new song and gave a new energy to the songs I’ve been singing for four years, thanks to all the emotions that came with this Audioslave record.”
Meanwhile, Forsyth released a new video for Redemption last week, the third single taken from her debut album Dawn Of The Dark.
IT was a massive weekend for Newcastle Americana artist Ben Leece.
Not only did the Sydney Roosters fan celebrate an NRL grand final victory by performing at Dashville Skyline, he was also riding high from winning the Sydney semi-final of the Listen Up Songwriting Festival for independent artists last Friday.
