Sarah Blasko (AUS)
Sarah Blasko writes songs that strike with rare immediacy, clarity and purpose. Melodies beguilingly simple, lyrics honest and direct. Music steeped in atmosphere and mood. On the cusp of releasing her sixth studio album Depth of Field, Blasko has reached rarefied status in her home of Australia. From the now-classic debut The Overture & The Underscore (2004) through to the stunning synth-laden ARIA Award winning Eternal Return (2015), her five-album run of genre-defining indie-rock and art-pop is unparalleled.
Much of Depth of Field was written and recorded during a two-week period as artist in residence at the Campbelltown Arts Centre in her home town of Sydney. The purpose of those Western Sydney sessions was to “manufacture a vibe” which mimicked live performance; to explore the influence of space in the song-writing process. On a stage, under bright lights and in a room with resonance and atmosphere, Blasko and her band captured performances of warmth, sensitivity and power.
