LJ_YARRA_POSTER

 

Come and see us warm up for the launch of my self titled new album which is out on Chapter Music August 22. We’ll be at The Yarra Hotel on the last 4 Wednesdays in July. It’s FREE :-)

I have a new band made up of some of my favourite musicians. Evelyn Morris, the genius behind Pikelet. Raquel Solier, drum warrior princess that has played with Jens Lekman, Geoff O’Connor, and of course has her own project as Fatti Frances. Biddy Connor, my musical soulmate and hero otherwise known as Sailor Days.

July the 9th with Lucy Roleff
the 16th with Ela Stiles
the 23rd with Susanna Scurry
and the 30th with Emma Russack.

The performers I asked to support us are exceptional and I am surprised they all said yes. What an honour.

Dinner at Yarra Hotel Abbotsford is delicious. Support on at 8:00, us on at 9:00. COME!!!!!!! :-)

Recording new album

Hey all

Over January I went to Bristol in the UK. I recorded and mixed an album with John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Giant Sand etc) and Ali Chant. It’s sounding great and I can’t wait to share it with you in winter this year. Have a look at www.instagram.com/laurajeanmusic for photos. Here is one of JP on the drums.

Performing… it’s ART

Barnaby Smith at ABC arts interviewed myself, Gareth Liddiard, Dan Kelly and Kram for his blog about the art of performing. Have a look here: http://www.abc.net.au/arts/blog/studio-shots/art-live-performance-barnaby-smith-121101/default.htm

I get a bit new age when I talk about performing. Fortunately Barnaby was kind enough to edit most of it out but the phrase ‘in the moment’ does appear at least once.

This article surrounds an exhibition I was a part of called ‘Live – an intimate study of the art of performing’. Some amazing artists were involved. Here is a picture of director Jasmin Tarasin showing Rufus Wainwright how to browse the internet.
