Husky lends voice to trib­ute

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music - Laura Pond

PERTH fans will have their last chance to see Mel­bourne mu­si­cian Husky Gawenda for some time when he tours Aus­tralia as part of the Rub­ber Soul Re­volver con­certs next month.

Gawenda, of band Husky, is based in Ber­lin but will re­turn to Aus­tralia for the shows be­fore head­ing back to Ger­many.

He, along with Mar­lon Wil­liams, Jordie Lane and Kingswood’s Fer­gus Li­nacre, will present The Bea­tles’ iconic al­bums Rub­ber Soul and Re­volver back to back.

“We spent a day to­gether al­ready and we got on like a house on fire,” he said. “I think the four of us have a par­tic­u­larly good chem­istry in our voices to­gether, so I think it will be amaz­ing.

“There’s a bunch of songs that we all sing to­gether, like Nowhere Man and What Goes On, that I think will be a re­ally ex­cit­ing part of the show. It will prob­a­bly be my favourite part of the show as well.”

Gawenda said he grew up lis­ten­ing to The Bea­tles and was look­ing for­ward to do­ing some­thing out­side of Husky.

“I think it will be a nice lit­tle healthy break for me,” he said.

“It will be nice to be in­volved with some­thing that just kind of sweeps me along and I can just fo­cus on the songs and get­ting them across in the best pos­si­ble way and that’s it, I don’t have to think about any­thing else.”

Gawenda said per­form­ing hits such as Nor­we­gian Wood (This Bird Has Flown), Yel­low Sub­ma­rine, To­mor­row Never Knows and Eleanor Rigby “feels like big shoes to fill”.

“I hope peo­ple re­ally en­joy it and have a great ex­pe­ri­ence and con­nect with the songs,” he said.

“I think that’s al­ways the aim when­ever I get up and sing – to try my best to de­liver the songs so that peo­ple can con­nect with them and these are such great songs, so easy to con­nect with, so I’m hop­ing that I don’t stuff that up.”
