"Weekend Liftout"

Take two acoustic guitars, add a violin and a mandolin and the voice of an angel and you have TinPan Orange.
This popular five piece outfit, headed by brother-and-sister duo Jesse and Emily Lubitz, sets quirky lyrics on gentle melodies and generate a unique sound.
Which sort of explains why TinPan Orange is in demand for guest spots: the likable Lubitz duo really know how to surprise people.
Soulster Renee Geyer, a long time fan, has said "If my voice had a baby, it would be hers (Emily)."
TinPan's lead singerreturns the compliment: "Renee has been hugely supportive and so gracious with her time and energy."
Any other memorable gigs?
Emily nominated the night Clare Bowditch supported TinPan Orange ("that was quite humbling for us"), and Jesse recalls a not-so-great night at the Espy, where they preceded Tim Rogers.
Emily: "We probably weren't the most suited band"
Jesse: "yeah... we weren't Tim Rogers. - Herald Sun

“If my voice had a baby, it would be hers” – Renee Geyer

Singer songwriter duo, Jesse and Emily Lubitz, write with flare about the poetics of the everyday uncanny. Their band, TinPan Orange, find on their musical journeys love in a flood and solitude in a crowd, binding the momentary with the eternal and the playful with the wretched.

Supported by the weeping violin of 'maestro' Alex Burkoy, and a stirring rhythm section provided by Gidon Symons (bass) and Chris Doig (drums), the songs are dynamic, dramatic, almost cinematic, yet truly wholesome.

Their debut album Aroona Palace (2005) brought them great success gaining both local and national airplay and significant public attention. Featuring artists such as Pete Jones (Crowded House), Harry Angus (The Cat Empire / Jackson Jackson) + Ollie McGill (The Cat Empire / The Conglomerate), the album has secured a dedicated fan base eager to see them live and hear their new works.

Having just released their second album 'Death, Love & Buildings', featuring Renee Geyer, TinPan Orange are currently traveling the country performing their unique blend of profound perceptions and musical insights.
