The 2015 ‘South Australian Female Artist of the Year’ finalist will play tonight at The Old Stone Butter Factory in Whangarei, 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.
Along with her power-packed live performances, her reputation as an ‘artist to watch’ is well and truly justified - and the critics agree.
“Sexy and sleek. If you like soul, wrapped in pop, driven by funk and laced with Hip-Hop, then this show is for you.” - Beat Magazine
“Powerful, soul-infused pop that delighted the audience. Intelligent songwriting skill.”
- Drunk on Music
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.
