Red Line 4 are an original Melbourne jazz band playing dynamic, driving and melodic music. Influenced by Pat Metheny, John Scofield, John McLaughlin and others the quartet creates a unique blend of jazz/fusion music. Since forming in early 2016 the band has performed at various Melbourne venues. A highlight of the bands year was its energetic performance at the 2016 Wangaratta Jazz Festival.

6pm Soft Power

Matthew Roche - guitar

Oscar Neyland - bass

Chris Cameron - drums

Led by guitarist and composer Matthew Roche, ‘Soft Power’ was born in early 2016 after a quarter-life crisis following a meditation retreat in 2014 that led Roche to re-focus his musical and spiritual outlook. Inspired by a journey into the mind’s undertow where it is not out of the ordinary to find epiphanies and nostalgic ghosts making strange bedfellows, Roche’s debut album ‘A Breath Is Like A Swinging Door’ features music that traverses jazz harmony with fluid, rock orientated grooves and wordless melodies that recall a pop vernacular of childlike innocence.
