"Lottie Liams, the Melbourne soloist with a tender heart, opened the evening serenading the crowd with her rich vocals, wholesome acoustic guitar and some friendly ukulele. Using her folky charms, Lottie Liams placed her soul on the edge of the stage through her honest songwriting. The eighteen-year-old played a small set of originals, including both of her singles; 'Sunflower' and 'Running Home'. Lottie Liam’s sound was somewhat opposite from what the night would later hold, but her flowing, poignant vocals helped set a softened excitement heading into Ruby Field’s set."
"[Middle Kids'] arrival onstage was received with tremendous enthusiasm, galvanised by two supporting acts that brought just the right amount of energy to warm The Corner Hotel crowd on an 8 degree evening; the first was Lottie Liams, a Melbournian singer/songwriter who’s aura of mystery formed the instant she took the stage without a band. This atmosphere transformed into one of overwhelming serenity as she submerged the audience in a sea of ethereal acoustic folk ballads, casting a gentle light under which the succeeding performance by Ruby Fields shone frenetic."
