Women of the Hills

$10 presale, $15 at the door

The Skylark Room presents, "Women of the Hills", a special show featuring four of the finest up-and-coming female singer-songwriters based in and around the Dandenong Ranges. Each with their own unique style, Pia Nesvara, MissMay, Tyller and Bec Sykes will showcase their powerful vocals and earnest songwriting in a celebration of local female music. The night will encompass an eclectic mix of genres including folk, soul, roots, jazz and rock.

Pia Nesvara

Pia is a small but powerful Chilean/Australian songstress from Gembrook. Always armed with her flamenco guitar and her cheekiness, she takes on elements of folk, roots, jazz, soul and Latin music to create her own truly unique sound. The 19-year-old finds power in vulnerability and through her introspective lyrics offers you a new perspective, one of empowerment and honesty. Pia’s powerful voice, her exploration of genres and use of timing and syncopation will captivate you and leave you feeling a little more whole.


Big voice, red lips, huge attitude! MissMay is a powerful female singer/songwriter from the Dandenong Ranges. To sum up MissMay’s sound imagine 1980's New Wave, Indie, Alternative and Rock. Her original songs tell tales that are honest and raw. She has a way of making you feel like you are the only person in the room having a conversation over a glass of wine.


Tyller is a 19-year-old, up-and-coming singer/songwriter from Melbourne's eastern suburbs, with a distinctly unique sound that comes straight from her heart and experiences. She vibes between genres such as Alternative Pop, Folk, RnB and Soul, and strives to become an international artist and motivational speaker.

Bec Sykes

Bec Sykes is a contemporary folk musician who can see the hills from the top of her street in Boronia. Layering moody melodies upon minimalist piano and guitar, Bec practices the art of subtley, taking cues from artists such as Paul Dempsey and Daughter. 2017 saw Bec release an EP and tour throughout Victoria as one half of Someday June. She will re-emerge at The Skylark Room as a solo act with a new set of material that exhibits her honeyed vocals and signature brand of moody folk.
