TINA HARROD - CITY OF LONGING ALBUM LAUNCH Tickets
7:00pm, Wed 11 April, 2018
The Basement, Sydney, NSW
Songwriter and vocalist, Tina Harrod, releases a breathtaking new album CITY OF LONGING, with a launch concert at The Basement, Sydney on Wed April 11th.
Produced by brilliant composer/arranger/pianist STU HUNTER, Tina's fifth album takes her songwriting and mind-blowing vocal skills to another plane. City of Longing is an emotionally charged, soul-wrenching set with real musical depth, performed by creative and adventurous musicians.
TINA HARROD: "My goal is to achieve cohesion, marrying different styles and ideas together to create their own sound. I don't want to make a new soul record or a new funky jazz album; I want to create something that is unknown to me."
"Stu (Hunter) recorded and mixed the whole album. He went above and beyond with this project - meticulously researching and boldly experimenting with sounds - which is time consuming and it is really thanks to him that that I have an album I am really proud of."
The songs are delivered with cutting edge production in an aural landscape of cinematic breadth: Stu Hunter's innovative arrangements are outstanding.
Tina is acknowledged as one of Australia's finest vocalists and she continues to find further seams to mine and depths to plumb within her craft. Her voice is a mature and powerful tool conveying emotions that many of us wouldn't dare feel. Brace yourself and grab a drink before listening...
