The NT Songwriter Spotlight Series is an intimate live music performance series, that showcases local original NT singer/songwriters at the much loved Darwin City live music venue Happy Yess.

Three local performers will share the stage and take turns performing original material and sharing the story behind each song. The relaxed setting allows the artists to really unpack who they are and what inspires their musical drive.

This is a great opportunity for audiences to get to know these talented musicians in an engaging, intimate and memorable way.

Show #1 features:

🎤Crystal Robins - one of the sweetest singer, songwriters & multi-instrumentalists you'll ever get to meet. Over the past year she has performed her original music throughout Darwin, was mentored by international star Toni Childs, supported Wendy Matthews at Darwin Entertainment Centre AND released her debut single "WILDFIRE" which made it to No 6 on the AMRAP Regional Music Chart. Always a delight, Crystal will shine in this intimate setting.

🎤Josiah Greer - the kind of performer that makes you stop mid-conversation and become transfixed on the stage. His  voice sores over acoustic guitar as he opens up on personal experience, struggle and the world around him. Creating sombre but sweet sounds and influenced by the likes of 'Angus & Julia Stone' and 'The Smiths', Josiah is a performer that doesn't perform enough, but when he does, you feel blessed to be there.

🎤Mandy Garling is a First Nations singer songwriter who grew up singing in the church. Her big voice is matched by her big personality and her shows always give you goosebumps and a few giggles. A natural story teller and entertainer, we are so lucky to have Mandy return to the Happy Yess stage.
