Tinpan Orange’s heavily stylised dark-folk-country music combines the highest levels of song-craft with an aching, sweeping romanticism. Supported by local singer-songwriter Joe Mungovan and legendary percussionist Greg Sheehan.
Tinpan Orange are one of Australia’s most loved brother-sister outfits. With the ethereal and mesmerising Emily Lubitz at the helm, joined by her brother, guitarist Jesse Lubitz and violin virtuoso Alex Burkoy, Tinpan Orange’s heavily stylised dark-folk-country music combines the highest levels of song-craft with an aching, sweeping romanticism.
Tinpan Orange spent 2017 working with producer Anna Laverty (Courtney Barnett, Meg Mac, The Peep Tempel) on a suite of new tracks and touring throughout Europe and Australia. The new songs draw on the trio's chemistry and create a rarified, naturalistic world, in which the few essential elements have been arranged to perfection. The deep, throbbing tremolo guitar, the shimmering strings, haunting autoharp and the fine threads of Emily Lubitz’s gossamer voice, are the defining components of the band's sound, never relying on tricks of production but rather the raw, live performances that each band member brings.

Joe taught himself guitar and unconsciously developed a style that blends indie folk and pop together to produce his unique style. With attention to articulate lyrics, catchy melodies and rhythmic detail, Joe’s songs express his genuine emotion. His authenticity and passion is conveyed in his intimate live show, and is an experience not worth missing.
Joe’s sophomore EP ‘Way Down South’ was released in March 2016 and debuted at #2 on the iTunes Singer – Songwriter charts. The first single ‘My Jumper’ received airplay on Triple J and was added to rotation on the Unearthed Station.
