Innersoul Live #14 **LIVE SOUL MUSIC** [TUESDAY – 12.08.2014]
featuring NUSU, SCOTT TEU & DANIEL MARCH, AND WAYNE CHATER.
InnerSoul Entertainment & Play Bar present Innersoul LIVE.
Innersoul LIVE is a showcase of music artists in Sydney. Held fortnightly, Innersoul LIVE provides a platform for the next generation of artists in the Australian soul movement to have their music heard. Set in the inner city creative hub of Surry Hills, Innersoul Live at PLAY BAR sees carefully selected artists present an acoustic set of their original music in an intimate setting.
With the Australian soul movement out in full force, thanks to the international success of artists like the GRAMMY nominated Hiatus Kaiyote, Innersoul LIVE is here to keep that momentum going locally and beyond. Defying genre boundaries and stereotypes to cover everything from nu-soul, raw and real hip hop and reggae to soulful Rhythm & Blues, Innersoul LIVE is your mid-week dose of soul that will have you transfixed by the talent on display.
Artists that have previously showcased at Innersoul LIVE include ARIA nominated singer/songwriter Jeremy Gregory, Billie McCarthy, Ron E Jones, Tabitha Ojeah, Michael Duchesne (The Voice) and Chantae Cann (featured vocalist with GRAMMY winning Snarky Puppy and GRAMMY nominated The Foreign Exchange), Thandiwe Phoenix and more.
Come down, kick back, and let yourself be moved by the musicality of our local artists at Innersoul LIVE.
NUSU is fronted by the voice of Amy Iheakanwa – Who brings a unique blend of Poetry, Rap and Melody.
Jasper is a multi-instrumentalist who lends his vocals gracefully for a perfect blend of harmony alongside singer songstress Jess Ankomah – the three of them form NUSU. And deliver a soulful original sound that has been no stranger to the Sydney scene in the last 12 months. Youthful, Beautiful and Soulful. NUSU.
SCOTT TEU AKA BROWNTONE //
Scott Teu is a phenomenal vocalist hailing from Sydney, and of Tongan background.
He was born and raised singing in the church. And no wonder when you hear his vocal and delivery inflicted with similarities of Gospel singers and the likes of Lauryn Hill and Stevie Wonder. He mentions Lauryn Hill’s debut album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” as the album that made him want to sing.
WAYNE CHATER //
Wayne Chater is a singer/songwriter and busker based in Sydney, Australia. Born and raised in Calcutta, India, his journey has definitely been one reflective of the wide eyed Slumdog sans the millionaire bit. He moved to Sydney in 2008 embracing every moment of living, learning and adapting to life in a beautiful new land.
The year 2011 saw his life shaken to the core when his father was diagnosed with a brain tumor. A pivotal change came about when his father (his partner in crime) lost his eleven month battle fighting the aggressive cancer. On his return to Sydney, Wayne was left feeling empty, lost and confused and saw the world as he knew it crumble around him both professionally and personally.
Searching for the true purpose of his existence and as a means to cope with the emotions pulsing through him, he found his outlet in songwriting. He reconnected with his childhood passion for poetry and singing, following his dream of sharing love and experiences with the world around him through song.
Wayne began busking at Sydney’s Central Tunnel at the end of 2012 loving the acoustics of the space and also because he could not afford an amplifier and a microphone. He primarily performs his original songs and covers a small set of songs that have helped him along on his personal journey. He loves busking, knowing full well that everyone who passes through the tunnel has their own story and has often shared meaningful connections through the messages in his music.
Wayne’s songs you will speak to you in their simplicity and touch you with their rawness and an honesty that comes from experiences where life has brought you to your knees and then shown you just enough to know what is truly important.
He began his you tube channel Wayne Chater Music in July 2014 and is currently working on his first project called Tunnel Vision with a team of people very close to his heart. On his journey Wayne has found the strength to reveal himself without any smoke and mirrors. Each day he remains committed to living his true purpose …. which to put quite simply is … be love.
