Blanche DuBois' music is a unique blend of sweet acoustic pop, tinged with a hint of country and a smattering of heart. It's the beauty in the ordinary, the every day. Early reviews of the first single, THE WAR IN ME, go a little something like this… "The harmonies and structures…have them heading somewhere more towards Bush or Bjork than the strum and reveal of the more typical Singer/Songwriter types." DRUM MEDIA SYDNEY. "Infused with a quick, clickity marching beat, nuanced strings, beautifully balanced harmonies and the catchiest of choruses, it's incredibly hard to resist tapping on the dashboard and singing along, let alone getting the chorus out of your head." - DRUM MEDIA PERTH. Click here for tickets
