Mea Culpa @ The Penguin Club

Mea Culpa @ The Penguin Club

Sat 13 Jul 2024, 7:30 AM - 12:00 PM

The Penguin Club Emulsion Lane Oamaru 9400

For the second show in their first tour, Mea Culpa will be performing at none other than the infamous Penguin Entertainer's Club in Oamaru! Joining us to help celebrate will be Matt Schöbs of The Flaming Bridges, performing an acoustic solo set.


Mea Culpa is a Dunedin-based band, built around two unique singer/songwriters, Emma Wells and Leigham Fitzpatrick.


Emma Wells is a musician originally from Invercargill now living in Dunedin. Her influences are vocalists such as Florence Welsh (Florence and the Machine) Eva Cassidy and Beth Gibbons (Portishead). Her originals take on a vulnerable soulful feel with bouts of power. Classically trained she is able to control her voice to express different emotions capturing the essence of her songs.


Leigham on the other hand is heavily influenced by the likes of Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave. Their often dark lyrics are accompanied by an unconventional guitar style which uses a mixture of alternative tunings and capos.


Separately, their vocal styles are strikingly different and together they form intoxicating harmonies that will sweep you off your feet and into the stars, where dreams come to life and everything is not as it seems... The band also has one of the smoothest fretless bass players, Ari van Eerten, and a master of the beat, percussionist Nashoba Addai.


Door sales only, $10 members and $15 everyone else.

Doors open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8, don't be late!
