FRIDAY 7.00pm Narissa Campbell (NYC) 

Narissa's music has its roots in jazz, weaves its way through sombre pop-ballads, bluesy folk songs, moody instrumentals and a lyricism full of thought and space. She explores a tricky, dark emotional landscape, lit with fleeting flashes of joy. You can get caught up in the late night jazz club ambience, but there’s always some hint of lost love and loneliness lurking around the corner. Ms. Campbell has developed a unique and deeply personal writing and performing voice. There is a sincere, raw and open emotional quality to her songs. Her voice shifts in mood and expressiveness, becoming rough and syrupy, plaintive, or smooth and sexy. She delivers a song with laid-back assurance and attitude of a young Peggy Lee. A prolific writer and seasoned performer, Nerissa penned all three of her albums, Paint Me Orange (2003), Musings of a Telescopic Tree (2009) and Blue Shadows (2012) and is currently finishing her most ambitious work yet, Little Little Just which combines her love of jazz & Balinese gamelan and explores a cross-cultural musical narrative commenting on identity, community & culture. The work not only explores her own relationship with Indonesia after a childhood spent in Bali, but also what community and culture means musically in the 21st century. Click here for tickets

FRIDAY 10.30pm The Spread featuring Danny Martin, Jade Webb and Aaron Malone

Tonight it's a team effort for the final week of the Spread residency at the Ellington. The band is bringing 3 amazing singers to the one stage for the royal send-off!

They'll be returning to the northern hemisphere to put the finishing touches on the album in the coming months, with a view to releasing the record mid-2014.
