Bio

DJ Gosper has been singing the blues after she fell helplessly in love with the Harmonica. She has since developed a reputation as one of the tastiest blues-harp players in Australia.

After spending 2007 to 2008 recovering from breast cancer, DJ is “performing with a passion that knows no tomorrow.” Bill Arnett, the Folkus Room, Canberra.
Raised in a musical family with sing-a-longs being a regular occurrence, DJ had piano lessons for many years and was heavily influenced by the blues and bluegrass records that were played in the family home. Her mother, concerned with her obvious passion for music, encouraged her to ‘get a real job’ to fall back on. So, like many musicians, DJ did just that and trained as a secretary which kept her in food and comfort until she recently decided that music spoke to heart and there was more to life than just surviving.
Her professional musical career began in 1995 fronting The Dynamic Lifters as singer, keyboard and harmonica player. This band exposed DJ to a range of music, from original songs to obscure folk songs to pub-rock and blues-rock covers and helped her to begin her journey toward finding her own sound.
As member of renowned vocal trio The Blues Cowgirls from 2002 – 2005, DJ played at various Australian blues and folk festivals. The independent release of ‘Ask Any Woman’ was awarded "Best CD of the Year" by Canberra Roots Music.
She formed the KarismaKatz in 2004 and wrote and produced her second CD “Spirit on the Rise” described by Phil Birch-Marston of Artsound FM as: “… something special, superb performances, lyrically powerful and thought provoking, a strong message of getting on with life through adversity. The spirit and adaptability of love shine through beautifully.”

In November 2007 DJ scooped the Canberra Blues Society Awards winning three of the six music categories: "Best Vocalist", "Best Instrumentalist" and "Best Song" (Burn Baby Burn, co-written with ‘Katz guitarist, Christo Carlsen).

DJ has shared the stage with some of Australia’s great blues performers including Kate Meehan, Phil Manning, Fiona Boyes, Dutch Tilders, Jan Preston, Ross Ward and the USA’s Eugene Hideaway-Bridges.
DJ’s third CD, Hot Flush Blues is her first solo album. The CD is true DJ style, one she has made her own. It walks a fine line between rock, swing, jazz and traditional blues.
