An Awesome Aussie: Interview with The Plum Trees

Australia isn’t only about shortening words while elongating band names. No, Australia is also known for its familial ties. Or maybe that’s just Perth-natives Shannon and Clancy Lethbridge. Either way, this brother and sister musical duo are so N’SYNC it’d put 98 Degrees to shame. Nice one, Josh. But seriously, these guys are tight. Whether the folk/rock/experimental duo are taking stages by storm in the outback of their native country, touring with a full backing band in Beijing or separately setting up shop and making their own IG videos in their bedrooms, they own it. Shannon sits down with us virtually to share her stories of songwriting, sibling squabbles and sexy sounds.”

Punk Night at Hot Cat

Shannon Lethbridge (lead singer of The Plum Trees) opened the stage with her experimental music with her sweet sounds of the ukelele, a wee bit of harmonica, looping outcries, celebrating womens day and sharing an instrumental song written for her cat. “Rooftop” is my favorite song, because it’s the simplest of joys to hang out with our favorite person on a rooftop, but the evening will never be forgotten .............. Shannon is Awesome. Awesome in it’s true meaning; something igniting the Aw.”
