Ullah is an indie-folk, singer songwriter who writes about the ordinary lovely (and not so lovely) things that are encountered each and every day. Her inspiration coming from the seemingly mundane aspects of life that she finds beauty. From an old man’s existential crisis to the infatuation of a simple stranger, her songs are created. With her band, each song is written with the intention to create a story in the audience’s mind.
4:50 PM – 5:30 PM band, live performances
Formed in early 2022, Happenings are a five-piece collective of music-makers based in Walyalup, WA. The band have created their own unique approach into the world of alternative folk-pop and art rock, executing this exploration via song and performance. Leading the project as the songwriter and caretaker of Happenings, Georgia Siciliano has taken a reflective and honest approach to their writing, delving into themes of self-identity, love stuff and general ponderings of time and place. The band released their debut single ‘Now is the Right Time’ in early October.
