VIKKI THORN (of The Waifs) is heading to The Imperial Hotel Eumundi to take to the stage in The Brewery for a beautiful evening of new music on Friday 18 March, supported by Andrea Kirwin.
The performance will celebrate the release of her debut solo album.
After 28 years of singing and touring as one third of ‘The Waifs’, Vikki Thorn (aka ThornBird) has returned home to Australia to find her own voice in the wild places of WA.
Known for her evocative song writing including Bridal Train, Sun Dirt Water and Take Me To Town, Vikki’s new solo material was born out of 10 years living in the canyons of Utah.
In these songs she explores the recurring theme of home and connection to place, and portrays the humour and heartbreak of life just south of Hell’s Backbone.
A dynamic and passionate performer who has sung with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Kelly, John Butler and Missy Higgins, Thorn is renowned for her powerful vocals and unique blues harp playing.
Her songs weave through country and blues, slightly side stepping away from the folk format of The Waifs, to indulge her love of the old R&B singing style. Thorn’s voice can swing and roll or radiate the intimate warmth of the morning’s first cuppa inviting you to sit at the kitchen table while she sings about life in the wild places.
ThornBird’s debut solo album will be released in March 2022.
Supporting Vikki on the night is Andrea Kirwin, an Australian/Fijian soul artist and producer based in Nambour, releasing music under her own independent Record Label Peace Run Records since 2013. Andrea’s original music is an earthy blend of folk, roots, hip hop, funk, reggae and soul and is born from love and her desire to understand humanity. Her signature voice can be honey toned, calming and a balm to the soul, and at other times a bluesy soulful gospel wail that can bring the house down.
18+ event. Doors open at 7:30pm
This show is proudly supported by Live Music Australia – an Australian Government initiative.
TICKETS: $40 (+ booking fee) through Oztix.
