Friday I’m In Love – Celebrating The Music Of The Cure

Prepare to be immersed in the magic of The Cure’s music at ‘Friday I’m in Love’ – performed by some of the Sunshine Coast’s most exceptional talents on Friday 3 November at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi. TOBiAS, Alys Ffion, Emma Beau, and Ryan Giles will grace the stage, each bringing their unique flair to the beloved and iconic music.

This evening promises to evoke nostalgia, stir emotions, and create lasting memories as these talented artists pay homage to one of the greatest bands in music history. 



Soulful. Engaging. Enigmatic. Indie/folk pop artist Tobias has been described as “Beck meets Paul Kelly meets War On Drugs”. After two decades performing on the international stage, Tobias has played alongside Missy Higgins, Jen Cloher, Archie Roach, Fanny Lumsden, Mark Seymour and Shane Howard. Known for his exceptional breadth, craftsmanship and songwriting ability, Tobias comes to life in his live performances with his band. Tobias had toured for the past five years, performing at festivals and organising drought relief concerts in towns throughout Western Queensland. He recently returned to the Sunshine Coast hinterland and released a new album ‘Behind The Valley’.

Alys Ffion

Alys Ffion

Alys Ffion has seen recent success as the pen behind #1 country radio hit Get it Girl by Sunshine Coast alumni Taylor Moss, and epic family moment I Move Slow on Aussie icon Jimmy Barnes’ most recent release. This year has seen her win nominations for an APRA AWARD – Most Performed Country Song for her efforts on Moss’ Get It Girl and a Q Music Award for Country Song of the Year for Moss’ What Am I Gonna Do? She’s spent 10 years honing her craft whilst living between Nashville, LA and Australia, and her deeply personal storytelling style and intricate knowledge of alternate guitar tunings has made her a sought-after musical collaborator on an international level. The prolific songwriter is rearing to release as an independent artist, beginning with heartfelt confessional I’ve Never Loved Anyone and uncomfortably honest Please Don’t Say Hi (both in collaboration with Jay Bovino of Sheppard). She’s dusted off songs she thought may never see the light of day with the release of ‘2018 Demos’ – a 9 track EP featuring long lost recordings born of her escapades in Nashville. A humble nod of respect to her past as she boldly steps into a future of new music. 

Emma Beau

Emma Beau

Emma Beau is a creative powerhouse, a multi-instrumental, ethereal vision set to burst onto the electro/pop scene with her combination of retro/witchy synth vibes. Having shared the stage with Australian legend Kasey Chambers and performed with her violin on The Voice, Emma Beau has all the potential of an undiscovered gold mine. She’s the secret ingredient in the special sauce. Beau’s achievements include taking out the Queensland Music Awards in 2019 for her #4 ARIA charting song Wild Heart (#1 on the independent charts), and touring around Australia as session musician at Australia’s major festivals, including Woodford Folk Festival and Caloundra Music Festival. Her new single The Nerve sees Beau stepping out of her old skin with a new sound and attitude, combining her sultry vocals with electronic production, recorded, mixed, and produced by Beau and her bandmates in her bedroom on the Sunshine Coast.

Ryan Giles

Ryan Giles

Ryan Giles is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, and a born performer. His strong groove-driven guitar, and fingerpicking accompanied by soaring harmonica solos, has left audiences in awe all over the Great Southern Land. He’s a seasoned vocalist and guitarist drawing inspiration from the 50s to the 90s, funk to blues, folk to hip hop.  Watch in amazement as all his limbs are moving, never keeping still … the guitar, the stomp, the harmonica, the voice, barely stopping for air.
