Evento Rock

MARTY & OLIVIA WILLSON-PIPER
“After playing together in South America in 2016, Olivia and I set about discovering
the possibilities of the 12 string acoustic and the violin, currently interpreting songs
from my own back catalogue, and adding a completely new magical layer to tunes
that you thought you knew, taking them to new planets, new dimensions and new
emotions.”
Best known as a member of Australian luminaries The Church (from its inception
through to 2013), Marty Willson-Piper has been writing and performing music for
almost four decades. He was also a member of All About Eve and The Saints, and has
co-written music with Grace Slick, Aimee Mann, Jules Shear, Susanna Hoffs and Linda
Perry, among others. Today he represents one half of Cornish duo Noctorum. Marty
is also lead singer and lyricist with Swedish band MOAT and a member of Swedish
Prog legends Anekdoten, joining in 2015. Since the mid-1980s, Willson-Piper has also
maintained a steady solo output, with nine releases to date.
Born in a leap year near Cologne with a Polish surname to a Swedish air hostess
mother from Västmanland and a German scientist father from “Kraftwerk” city
Düsseldorf (who is currently designing bricks for a future moon station), Olivia
Willson-Piper started playing the violin when she was nine years old and joined an
orchestra at eleven. Playing concerts in Sweden, Russia, Lithuania, Spain and
Germany, she became leader of the orchestra at 18. During her Uni years she
focused on busking, jam sessions and Jazz violin.
The Willson-Pipers have been featured on Noctorum’s fourth album The Afterlife,
are members of Atlantæum Flood and will be part of MOAT’s 2021 release Poison
Stream (Schoolkids Records).
It's the couple's Italian debut concert!
