Still working on that hot first release.



In 14 years this bi-continental artist has notched up award-winning pop songs, Japanese and North American tours, and numerous film credits. Her current work is her most crucial and magnetic yet: Filmic, shameless songs unifying beautiful pop, strange country, indie soul and splintered rock.
It started when she stole a guitar from her brother and left town. Barely able to play at the time, she formed chords she couldn't name and fashioned them into songs, playing a few quiet shows here and there, and recording when the opportunity arose. Eventually there were bands, the recordings they made, and a nod from Australia’s national youth broadcaster Triple J – who named her as a winner of their Unearthed competition alongside Missy Higgins and Silverchair. After a crack at a solo project and a low-key release or two, she carved out a niche in Canada, making music for films.
In one homesick moment, recording alone in a converted attic in Chicago, she realized what she had searched for, from her hometown to the city, along the eastern seaboard, through the dark alleys of Ni Chome and Yutenji, from the Pacific northwest to California and the Midwest, was back where she began. She headed home to the Mornington Peninsula in Australia, and rallied some of her musical heroes, her family, and her childhood friends to become a proper band.
With the help of Darryl Neudorf (Neko Case, New Pornographers) a full length record is now taking shape and will be released in 2012. When asked why it took so long, she’s at first evasive, but then her answer bursts out like it is has been stored too long under pressure “I’ve stayed out of sight. I’ve behaved like I had something to hide from. But I’ve reached the point of not being able to contain it anymore”.
