Northern-rivers singer-songwriter Bethanie Jolly is a true teller of tales and an exciting new talent emerging on the music scene. Her unique raw vocals tell heart stirring personal tales. Bethanie’s rich folk style is coloured with splashes of old time blues and deeply moving soul. It has been likened to a dulcet blend of the soulful sounds of Tracy Chapman and Eric Bibb, mixed with a lyrical song-craft akin to the likes of Joni Mitchell and Gillian Welch and drenched in Australian soil.
“I aim to get to the heart of this shared, imperfectly perfect human experience, through the age-old magic of music and song.”
A long time coming, Bethanie has just released her debut album ‘Woo Me From My Sleep’. Recorded in Byron Bay with the legendary Jordan Power and a melting pot of exceptional musicians, including Bobby Alu, Peter Hunt (from much loved Brisbane-band ‘Kooi’), Benny Fowler (from ‘Benji and the Saltwater Soundsystem’), Ben Wilson and ‘Two Lion’s’ Kara Mallory, she is excited to be taking the album on the road with a variety of special guests joining her along the way.
To accompany the launch of her new album, Bethanie has also launched the ‘Woo Me From My Sleep’ painting series. Go to Art to see.
