As most artists, we are here for the purpose to create - we can be down to nothing and still have so much inside that is untapped - for myself, this is usually music, words and the songs. Realistically we are not all fortunate enough to dedicate our time to this alone. And sometimes this can become frustrating but the balancing of it all is usually where the best songs come from. It's not the perfect life which culminates the best tunes! And a lot of artists get that. And for me personally, it has never necessarily been about the money (although it sure as hell helps with the process). My journey with music and healing has been a long one. There has been much joy, sadness, frustration and much freedom attained through being a singer songwriter. And I will always be grateful to the amazing musicians who have become good friends I have worked with over the years. I have learnt much and continue to learn and grow as a musician and songwriter. They are the ones who sit with me and arrange my songs to give them their final wings.
LINDA MIZZI TRIO
Linda Mizzi brings light, honesty and a touch of darkness into her songs. The singer songwriter based in her home town of Katoomba is blessed to be surrounded by so many like-minded artists and musicians. It is on the festival circuit and in front of a listening audience that Linda Mizzi truly comes into her own. This year she is excited and proud to bring 'The Linda Mizzi Trio' to all, featuring Glenn Skarratt on Mandolin and Alex Keller on Bass guitar. With a strong direction toward country/folk once again, you will still hear undertones of blues that is very common to Linda's style on previous albums - however the older and new handpicked songs written and arranged together, will be more stripped back - with a primary focus on Linda's often thought provoking lyrics. After reforming again after four years, this collaboration is a strong one, and one to watch.
