International touring swamp-blues-rocker 8 Ball Aitken is bringing his party gig to Hobart on Friday July 14 at The Founders Room supported by mystical soul rocker Taya Chani.
8 Ball Aitken has toured the world for more than a decade performing his swampy-blues-rock across twenty countries to date. He’s earned a loyal fanbase from his live shows and internet videos, while paying his dues as a singer, songwriter, slide-guitarist, and producer.  
8 Ball won second place in the 2021 International New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival hosted by blues woman Samantha Fish. His album release ‘ICE CREAM MAN’ hit #1 on the Australian Blues & Roots Charts in March 2021.
8 Ball moved to Nashville, Tennessee, USA in 2012 and worked for nine years with many of the best in the blues business today.
Taya Chani is a Sydney based singer, songwriter, and guitarist. With a soothing voice, she effortlessly incorporates blues, soul, Americana, jazz, funk, and R’N’B. Taya delivers a genuine and comforting set that digs deep. Her debut album Restless Heart features an top notch lineup of her Sydney musician friends. 
Her showmanship and strength in dynamically leading a band shines through, and her powerful yet silky voice is the highlight of her show.  
Taya has shared stages with many of Australia’s top blues and roots artists including Ian Moss, Simon Kinny Lewis, Ray Beadle, Clayton Dolley, Adam Pringle, Mitch Anderson, Harry Bruce, Jesse Redwing, Matt Ross, Rob Susz, Pat Powell, Lisa Ohlback, Sally King, Big Mamma Fran Liddle, Shane Pacey, and many more. 
Taya has performed at many festivals including Woodford, Australian Blues Festival, Echuca Blues Festival, Marrickville Blues Festival, Surry Hills Blues Festival, Sydney Blues Festival, Girrakool Blues Festival and others. 
Taya has travelled to the Deep South of America and performed in New Orleans, Clarksdale, Nashville, and Memphis. Taya always returns to her native Australia, with a stronger goal, greater drive and overflowing with inspiration to write and create authentic music.
