On tour throughout April & May, Australian-born, USA-based Nerissa Campbell brings an intimate show that spans 15 years of original music to her home shores. In her debut Brisbane performance she’ll be joined by Steve Newcomb -piano, Luke McIntosh -bass, Aaron Jansz -drums at Doo-bop Jazz Bar on April 12th.
Nerissa Campbell’s music weaves its way through somber pop-ballads, bluesy folk songs, moody instrumentals, and a lyricism full of thought and space. She has developed a unique and deeply personal writing and performing voice – immersed in the jazz tradition, but strongly forging her own direction. The blues is in her wistful and melancholy voice, but it plays hide and seek with space and sound, creating a depth of feeling beyond the obvious. She creates a fine blend of styles dipped in a smoky batter of late night living.
A graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, she has called New York home since 2001, performing at well known haunts such as 55 Bar, The Jazz Gallery, Fat Cat, Le Poisson Rouge, Zinc, & Rockwood Music Hall. A long term member of NY’s Balinese Gamelan Dharma Swara, she has also been the feature vocalist in post-metal band, A Storm of Light, and was the recipient of an Australian Arts Council New Works grant for her album, After The Magic, a project that explores the use of Balinese Gamelan, a jazz trio, fleeting guitars and moody instrumentals.
Nerissa has performed at Basilica Soundscape (Hudson NY), Festival Centro (Bogota Colombia), Roadburn Music Festival (Tilburg, NL), Singapore Arts Festival, Stanford Jazz Festival (Stanford, USA), Perth International Arts Festival (Perth, AUS), Asymmetry Festival (Wroclaw, PO), as well as at clubs throughout Europe, USA, Canada, & Australia. Her music was featured in ‘Freddy’s – the Documentary’ (screened at Brooklyn International Film Festival), ‘Stranger Love’ (original music performed as part of Eva Minemar & Tony Lepore’s play). She has been a part of performative literary readings, modern dance pieces, off-Broadway plays, and a 32-piece orchestra.
Campbell has released four albums under her own label, Crooked Mouth Music: Paint Me Orange (2003), Musings of a Telescopic Tree (2009), Blue Shadows (2012), and After The Magic (2016).
