The South Australian songwriter & multi-instrumentalist spends most of the year around a campfire in her 1992 Toyota Hiace Van called “Pamela Vanderson”.
Her debut album “40,000 Star Hotel” tells the story after leaving her marriage and mortgage behind in the pursuit of happiness. The single of the same name, co-written with Aleyce Simmonds is a big, ballsy, freedom-esque blues which captures the heart of the Australian landscape and the lure of off-grid living.
Choosing to pursue the road less travelled after learning of her father’s althzeimers diagnosis – this album captures heartbreak and grief in a way that leaves you breathless. A diverse first offering from an artist you absolutely need to hear.
You cannot put her unique style into a box. From soulful country to big blues, it is real and raw and vulnerable.
