Larissa Tandy is one of Australia’s finest emerging talents, a powerful, instinctive songwriter with an arresting voice. She joins forces with alt country all stars Brooke Russell and the Mean Reds for a run of Australian shows this Winter, landing at the Gasometer in hometown Melbourne on July 2nd. Hailing from rural Australia, Larissa came up from the underground of Melbourne’s music scene, mining her difficult life for potent stories and spinning them into songs that made their way onto radio in America, the UK, and Canada where the CBC ordained them as “songs you need to hear”.
Filtering the urgent poetry of Patti Smith and the untamed cool of Liz Phair, while fearlessly laying bare her road worn heart, Tandy is carving her own path in the world of modern Americana. Her momentum continues to gather, and in 2017 she makes the move to Music City Nashville as the recipient of The Australia Council’s prestigious Nashville Songwriter Residency.
