Cementing themselves as the newest home for live music in Melbourne’s South-East, The Count’s are about to welcome their resident artist for June, Audrey Powne. Housed in the Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts at Monash University, The Count’s is a sophisticated jazz oasis right in the middle of the suburbs, and your new home for live music in Melbourne’s South-East.
The budding phenom, Audrey Powne is a name synonymous in both jazz and R&B circles with ingenuity and inventiveness. Having previously fronted outfits ‘Leisure Centre’ (F.K.A. The Do Yo Thangs) and genre defying synth- pop duo ‘Au Dré.’, the Trumpeter/Vocalist released her first solo EP Bed I Made in 2020, to praise from Earmilk, NME, and BBC Radio 6 presenter Gilles Peterson, who went on to commission her for a track on his Brownswood Recordings Compilation and premiered her debut single on his BBC show.
