The future of soul music is bright, and we have Ngaiire to thank for it.
Boasting a selection of future-soul sounds, Sydney and Papua New Guinea based artist Ngaiire is rising up the industry ranks, touring alongside the likes of Alicia Keys and Sufjan Stevens. She also has a range of awards in her repertoire including four National Live Music Awards and the inaugural Australian Women in Music award for Artistic Excellence.
Ngaiire is set to perform a highly anticipated show titled Ngaiire Takeover 2.0 at Sydney’s Factory Theatre on June 12, performing an array of her unique and tasteful tunes. Having previously performed a sold-out show at the Sydney Festival, the likes of the Sydney Morning Herald have praised the bold artist, describing her as “some kind of neo-soul Wizard of Oz.”
As well as this, Ngaiire has recently been signed to Dot Dash Recordings and Remote Control Records, marking her place in the industry. Speaking on this exciting development in her career, Ngaiire has said, “it’s really exciting to finally having a small but incredibly dedicated army of people to help carry this project.
“What means even more is that Dot Dash came to the table really wanting this partnership and have already shown how fearless they are about taking on an artist that has never really fit the moulds. So you know we about to shift gears now.”
Jun 12 (4:30 & 8:30pm). Factory Theatre, 105 Victoria Rd, Marrickville. $38.90+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.factorytheatre.com.au
