Blasko coming to the Moncrieff

SARAH Blasko's softly spoken conversation could not be any further from the big, velvety voice she uses on stage and in the recording studio.

The talented singer and songwriter has come a long way since first exploding onto the Australian music scene in 2004, but the vocalist still appears timid, but polite.

Bundaberg music lovers will have a chance to experience the songbird's latest when she performs at the Moncrieff Theatre on October 18.

“I think what is great about playing in theatres is that it makes for a really intimate and really warm setting,” she said.

“I really like the idea of old theatres and those things.”

Blasko said she was looking forward to performing in Bundaberg - the first time she has had a concert in the rum city.

“It's really nice to play for people out of the cities,” she said.

“It's really nice that people who go usually get really enthusiastic because they don't usually get to see many acts or bands.”

The concert will feature songs from all of three of the artist's albums, including her latest record As Day Follows Night, which heavily features the piano.

“The last record I started to use the piano and this is the first album that I've written using the instrument,” she said.

“I love it. There's so much you can do with it, it has such a rich, beautiful sound.”

The songstress said she hoped the audience felt just as strongly about her older music as she did.

“It never really does feel old,” she said.

“Particularly when you can play it in a different way and it can become like having a relationship and remembering how you felt when it was written.”

Blasko's stop in Bundaberg is a part of a nationwide tour and follows an extensive international tour in the United Kingdom and the United States.

During the tour, she will be supported by her friend and fellow musician Seja.

Seja is well-known for her work with Regurgitator and Sekiden and has recently released a solo album We Have Secrets but Nobody Cares.
