Who are Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan?
Around the world and into your brain, vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentalist and looping beatboxing songwriter Mal sings his songs about all manner of stuff. He’s like Bobby McFerrin, Skrillex and Cole Porter playing scrabble. “You’re a freak!”- Ani DiFranco. “Not much uke, but brilliantly enlightening and entertaining!” – Mark Jackson
Catch him in Newcastle for a rare visit before he heads off back to Melbourne, Germany, the UK, Woodford – wherever this global genius is booked next.
Read more than you can at his Mal Webb site.
This video doesn’t capture all of the styles that Mal does (he does play uke, trombone, guitar, bass as well). But this is fascinating stuff that he infuses throughout his performances. Only made better by the live harmonies and fiddle of Kylie Morrigan.
Mal’s vocal workshops are a ‘cultural jaunt into your gob’, exploring the physics, physiology and phrivolity of every sound a face can make. Sideways yodelling, beatbox, throat singing, looping and safe vocal distortion. Be a band with your voice and the lead singer too. If you can’t sing, this is for you. If you can sing, you’ll find a new obsession with what your voice is capable of!
