Formed for a tour of the Dampier Peninsula in 2007, Overlander brings together four of Australia’s leading musicians, combining the funky rumbles of didjeridu superstar William Barton, the dulcet vocals of singer/ songwriter Mel Robinson, the boundless charm and wit of composer/performer extraordinaire Iain Grandage and the voluptuous strength and energy of percussionist Claire Edwardes.
Overlander’s unusual instrumental force of voice, cello, percussion, didgeridoo and electric cello makes for a completely different concert experience. Its program features works composed and arranged exclusively by members of the group.
Each musician has a different approach to musical language and their works combine to form a rich tapestry of sonic colours. With its casual approach to concert giving, Overlander creates a deeply evocative and poignant soundscape that is at once, moving, virtuosic and eclectic.
