After establishing herself in Australia as an act ‘to watch’, urban soul singer Jay Power and her award-winning band are bringing their mesmerising live show to New Zealand this August.
The 2015 ‘South Australian Female Artist of the Year’ finalist will play at Meow in Wellington on August 10, with support from local collective, Spitfire. She’ll then head north for a show at The Old Stone Butter Factory in Whangarei on August 12 with special guest, the super-talented musician and actor Troy Kingi, before performing at the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival on August 13 and 14.
Power’s live shows combine urban beats with hints of funk and splashes of neo soul. She has supported Australia's mother of soul Renee Geyer numerous times and recently shared the stage with UK’s hottest vocal group The Sons of Pitches and New Zealand’s award-winning Hollie Smith.
Helping Power bring her electrifying performances to life, is her world class band including Darren Matthiassen (Shapeshifter, Hollie Smith) bass player Marika Hodgeson (Hollie Smith, Sorceress) and guitarist Mikey Chan (Roots Manuva). Between them they have played at some of the biggest festivals in the world including Glastonbury and Womad NZ.
