Friday, November 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Trumpeter and vocalist Audrey Powne is a name synonymous in both jazz and R&B circles with ingenuity and inventiveness. A stalwart of Melbourne’s burgeoning jazz/soul scene she is known for fronting alt. RnB outfit ‘Leisure Centre’ (F.K.A. The Do Yo Thangs) and genre defying synth-pop duo ‘Au Dré.’
Described as “..the very brilliant Audrey Powne” by legendary BBC radio DJ Gilles Peterson she is very much a name on the rise. 2020 saw the release of her debut solo recording “Bed I Made” named one of the best soul releases by Bandcamp Daily. Her prowess as a trumpeter has seen her play with artists including Maceo Parker, Vince Jones, The Teskey Brothers, and Midnight Oil.
This is your chance to see her in her element, to perform a collection of choice standards, hard-bop classics and originals alongside an incredible band including James Bowers on Piano, Myka Wallace on drums and Ryan Munro on bass.
