Women Of Soul

Women Of Soul Are Back In 2013 With An Awesome New Show!

Soul music comes with a history and legacy that stretches across generations of music artists. A soul singer is not taught the art of soul, but rather born into a world of melodies, deep rhythms and sexy tones. Soul music comes from the ‘soul’ and reaches out to music lovers across genres, connecting with people on all different levels. It is with this ethos that the special Women of Soul live show has been created. Originally launched in 2009, the Women of Soul show already has two successful tours under its belt and this time around brings the talents of two more great Australian soul divas to the stage.

Growing up Mindy Kwanten & Evie J Willie were both inspired by a host of Motown, northern and modern soul international music icons to become professional singers. They grew up listening to the music, captivated by the powerful vocals and melodies. Now these fine and powerhouse vocalists will combine their enthusiasm and energy in this special live show, Women of Soul – Tribute to Soul Divas. These two talented performers have been touring the country over the last year supporting Christine Anu’s successful REWIND- The Aretha Franklin Songbook tour.

Women of Soul isn’t your ordinary live show, it jam-packs two hours of back-to-back music, paying tribute to the world’s greatest soul divas, including Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Tina Turner, Thelma Houston, Diana Ross and many more. Women of Soul pull together a set-list of soul classics and contemporary favorites with remarkable style and energy. Seeing these two amazing performers on stage it’s evident they are soul divas within their own right.

Mindy Kwanten is a well-known name in industry circles. She’s an accomplished session vocalist who started out in musical theatre and has leant her voice to numerous television and radio jingles. She has also performed backing vocals for some of the country’s most prominent touring musicians. In addition to her session work, Mindy has established a name for herself in her own outfit – Bow and Arrow – an eccentric duo with husband Mitchell Kwanten. They’ve previously released two EPs – Return to Me and Don’t Play Roulette in Russia – and are currently working on a third EP due for release in the near future.

Evie J Willie has a similar music history and has been penning her own original material since her teen years. Last year Evie teamed up with producer and friend Phil Rigger to create her long awaited EP Lady Soldier. Recorded with her five-piece band, which features Shane McGrath on lead guitar, the EP is the perfect showcase of her talents. The songs, written about personal experiences and stories, are uplifting and inspirational. As an up-and-coming Indigenous performer making her mark on the local scene, Evie continually draws back to her cultural roots, creating a uniquely Australian soulful musical experience.

Adding something special to this already spectacular concert experience, Women of Soul will be joined on stage by three of Australia’s very own soul sisters – Deni Hines, Casey Donovan and 2012 X-Factor finalist Angel Tupai. Women of Soul is the ultimate show – oozing soul, class and musical proficiency. Don’t miss this chance to hear soul as it’s meant to be performed!
