    Event description

    Anousha Victoire is a weaver of everyday dreams, stitching together folk/world influenced melodies with bell-over-water clarity of vocal tone. The introspective singer-songwriter blends delicate ideas with a heart-aching immediacy. Her trademark fingerpicking folk guitar style and haunting vocal melodies are complemented by soaring, emotive strings and vocal harmonies, blending into folk storytelling songs that could be timeless classics. Once they discover her, her fans prove tenacious, if not downright possessive.

    After a surprise win of an ABC Music Award for Folk for one of the first songs she wrote in the early 2000s, she went on to build a loyal local following, while the early songs gained indie and ABC radio airplay. Performance credits include the National Folk Festival,  St Albans Folk Festival, Planet Dungog, Woodford’s Women Out Front showcase, and tours of the east coast of Australia, particularly at home in intimate concerts and folk clubs.

    Initial EP releases back in early 2000’s won additional awards and gaining her recognition with her song on the plight of the last asylum seeker on Nauru with “Last Man Standing“. She returned to the studio with 2020 full-length album ‘Precious Things’, and the single ‘Rather Be Your Lover (Than Your Wife)’  featuring guest bluegrass musicians Gleny Rae and Robbie Long, received airplay on Double J. 2023 heralds the launch of a brand new studio EP ‘Embers of the Night’ produced by Gareth Hudson.

    “I love it when I find a young singer-songwriter who understands the tradition from which their music grows. Anousha Victoire is one such performer. She knows where her songs come from, both in form and content, and her music is the more powerful for that knowledge” (Judy Small)
