Iowa born Pieta Brown is no stranger to folk mu-
sic having been brought up on a diet of traditional
and rural songs from the likes of Iris Dement to Bob
Dylan and Bonnie Raitt. Not surprising when you
consider her Dad, Greg Brown, penned tracks for the
likes of Willie Nelson. Is there any wonder this young
artist has turned out to be a soulful crooner that can
give PJ Har vey a run for her money?
Described by one of Pieta's own musical favour-
ites Iris DeMent, as 'the best poet I've heard in a long
time" Brown has ser ved up two critically acclaimed
albums Remember the Sun and Shimmer. Her third
album One and All has just been released and proves
Brown has a voice that can capture not just the hearts
but the heartland of Americana.
Brown will be landing down under in November
for a series of showcases, performing alongside ac-
claimed guitarist and long time collaborator Bo Ram-
sey (Mother Blues Band, Lucinda Williams).
Tour dates: Mon Nov 22, 8pm - The Basement,
Sydney; Tues Nov 23 & Wed Nov 24, 8pm - The
Northcote Social Club, Melbourne; Thurs Nov 25,
Fri Nov 26, Sat Nov 27 -- The Mullum Music Festival
- Modern Day Addiction
These whimiscal casio
inspired pop songs from
the lovely Ms Bowditch
celebrate the maladies of
our twenty rst century life.
Bowditch's waxes lyrical on our many modern day
addictions (hence the title) to reveal a sublime piece
of pop magic. De nitley one to add to your collection.
Pieta Brown - One and Only
One part PJ, a dash of Dylan
and the ferocity of Feist, Pieta
Brown is perhaps the best
singer songwriter to come
out of the US in years. Little
wonder when you consider
her pedigree - her Dad wrote songs for many of the
US's most renowned country singers. Still Brown
need not trade off her family name - this is one
talented gal - and the songs on this album prove it!
- Eliza Doolittle
if you're imagining sweet
little ditties by a cocky lass
- you're not that far off -
Eliza Doolittle much like her
namesake is a refreshing
breath of air on the often times jaded UK pop scene.
This talented 22 year old has served up some garage
inspired punk pop that will instantly set your toes
tapping. Listen out for radio friendly tracks such as
Australian fans of London-born songstress Eliza
Doolittle can rejoice as dates for her promo tour have
been confirmed. Doolittle will be playing exclusive
headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne from
November in support of her debut self-titled album.
Inspired by the garage mentality of 1960s and 70s
pop, Doolittle's infectiously catchy tracks 'Pack Up'
and 'Skinny Genes' have seen her quickly become
one of the artists to watch in 2010.
At only 22 years of age Doolittle is amazingly no
stranger to the music business; she began writing
songs at the age of 12 and co-wrote all of the
tracks on her debut with a little help from top-notch
collaborators such as Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, SIA),
Craigie Dodds (Amy Winehouse) and the late Jonny
$ (Kylie, Massive Attack). The result is a fresh sound
that celebrates the fun side of life.
Doolittle's album was released in the U.K in July
debuting at No.3 and after just four weeks was
certified gold; a remarkable feat for such a new
Be sure to catch Eliza Doolittle when she heads
