Bethanne’s dream combo of prog rock + 70s vibes came true this week as we got to sit down with Morgan-Leigh Brown, lead singer of Australian band, Acolyte. We talk about what it’s like to be a woman in the rock space and their new album, Entropy.
About Acolyte: Hailing from Melbourne, Acolyte stand alone in the Australian music scene as a powerful and exploratory blend of classic and modern progressive rock. To experience an Acolyte live performance is to embark on a mesmerising journey through theatrical melodies, crushing riffs, cavernous soundscapes, soaring leads and exemplary technical musicianship. Following the 2016 release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Shades of Black’ (Best Heavy Album nomination: Victoria Music Awards 2016,Best Live Performance shortlist: Oz Independent Music Awards 2016), Acolyte has become a staple on the Australian live scene – headlining their own national tours as well as supporting Prog-Metal legends 12 Foot Ninja on their national ‘Outlier’ tour, home town kings Jericco at their final show in Melbourne and more recently Voyager, Leprous and a host of others on the main stage at Melbourne’s PROGFEST.
