Every now and then a musician appears that has to be seen and heard to be believed.
On the afternoon of September 22, at 2pm the Nambucca Valley will have the opportunity to experience such an artist when Joanna Wallfisch comes to the iconic Bowraville Theatre.
It is said that Joanna's music defies genre classification as she effortlessly imbues her songs with nuances of jazz, classical, art-song, and folk, carrying her "clear-eyed poetry" (Boston Globe) and "striking vocals" (Hothouse).
Her songwriting extends beyond just lyrics and melody - Joanna also arranges for ensembles including string quartets, winds, a cappella voices and more.
Described by Downbeat Magazine as "an exquisite singer-songwriter", Joanna's music conveys a beauty of a many-coloured sort that speaks to straight to the human condition.
Her songs reveal personal truths about love, loss, adventure, home and hope. World Music Report described it as "quintessential heart-music by a vocalist who seems to have connected with the deepest recesses of her being emerging into brightness again with songs of haunting beauty."
Joanna is a master in the art of live vocal looping and as a multi-instrumentalist plays baritone ukulele, piano, flute, Indian shruti box, kalimba and melodica.
Honing her craft in cities such as London, Paris and New York, Joanne comes to Bowraville following the release of her fifth album, Far Away From Any Place Called Home. It is this beautiful work that Joanna Wallfisch will show case at the Bowraville Theatre on Sunday, September 22.
Joanna Wallfisch will be the first of a succession amazing talent to appear at the Bowraville Theatre in the coming months. The highly successful fundraiser held at the theatre in July this year demonstrated that there are so many people in the Nambucca Valley and beyond who have an affection for this beautiful theatre and want to see it as a venue for wold class artists.
Bowraville Theatre Box Office opens at 1.30pm for ticket sales.
