Inner-Soul #7 **LIVE SOUL MUSIC** [TUESDAY – 06.05.2014]
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 two – four 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 R&B, Innersoul LIVE is your mid-week dose of soul that will have you transfixed by the talent on display.
Come down, kick back, and let yourself be moved by the musicality of our local artists at Innersoul LIVE.
TABITHA OJEAH //
Tabitha is a captivating entertainer. A proud Nigerian-Australian woman hailing from a blessed musical family, this pocket rocket has made a name for herself performing regularly as a session singer in the Soul/Funk/Rnb/Dance music scene alongside some of the finest musicians and Djs in Australia.
A graduate of the Australian Institute of Music, currently she is fronting her own band “Tabitha and The Clique” and working as backing vocalist to touring Aria award winning artist, Jessica Mauboy. Tabitha’s powerful stage presence draws you in and will leave you wanting more after every show.
A recent review referred to Tabitha as a woman who “totally surrenders to music in a sensual and disarmingly powerful way.” This really says it all.
