Wow! What a crazy year! Pandemics, lockdowns, cancelled tours... Hope you've survived ok, with your family, your business and your sanity intact. Fortunately in Australia, the music scene is slowly returning to some degree of normality, sadly however, not without its casualties. Please check-in here and my social media channels to stay in the loop with all I'm doing in the coming months. And, please, feel free to drop me a line.
Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Taasha Coates was the voice of multiple ARIA Award winning folk-rock band The Audreys.
The Audreys launched in 2006 with Triple J faves “You and Steve McQueen”, “Oh Honey’ and “Banjo & Violin”, then went on to grace almost every major festival in Australia. They rocked theatres and clubs in Europe, North America and Australia, sold songs to films and tv shows far and wide, wrote music for live theatre, won awards, hit the charts, went gold and pawned their very hearts for rock and roll.
Taasha released four studio albums with The Audreys, then in 2016 she released her debut solo album, "Taasha Coates & Her Melancholy Sweethearts" produced by Shane Nicholson and released on ABC Music.
Switching between piano, guitar and ukulele, Taasha performs songs from her solo album, the odd cover and of course a solid dose of The Audreys' hits. With songs about love, death, sex and an embarrassing array of ex-boyfriends, Taasha’s shows are sassy, charming and often unexpectedly funny. They often sell out fast, so be sure to book your tickets and don’t miss out!
Availble for purchase online and at shows.
