A torch song is traditionally a sentimental love song in which the singer laments an unrequited or lost love; providing a shoulder upon which the audience rests their collective broken hearts.

And we've all been there.

“Torchbearer” is a brand new show celebrating this genre, featuring the renowned recording artist and jazz noir male contralto, Graham J, accompanied by Ian Elmslie on the piano, formerly of award-winning cabaret duo Katrina and The Boy and author of the acclaimed book A Marvellous Party.

The evening features songs that are all traditionally sung by women and drawn from an eclectic roll-call of songwriters, that explore the myriad of joys and woes inherent within relationships, the blissful simplicity and the dreaded complications of love.

From off-Broadway to inner city bedsit, from bar-room to ballroom, from reimagined standards to original compositions, from laughter to tears and everything in between... expect the unexpected.
