Karen Lee Andrews - Lazybones Lounge
Jade MacRae and Karen Lee Andrews are two of Australia’s preeminent Soul and Blues voices. This is a rare opportunity to witness the two come together in a one off intimate show that will feature selections from both artists solo repertoires, coupled with some unique takes on material from the world's great Blues and Soul artists, current and classic. Both these women have their feet firmly planted in roots of Soul, Gospel and classic Rhythm and Blues sounds, and their shared Polynesian heritage provides a common backdrop which continues to inform their individual creative paths. Despite many common influences, these two artists possess distinctive, unmistakable and almost divergent vocal characters. Karen’s smoky gravel and grit, which transcends effortlessly to a sweet pure falsetto, answered by Jade’s unswerving power and jazz soaked phrasing - the combination of the two leaves no colour undiscovered, no emotion unexpressed. With Karen’s weighty guitar playing laying the foundation, Jade at the piano and Wurlitzer, and some very special surprise guests, this is sure to be a deeply moving night of Blues based music, not to be missed.
Festival of Voices has been bringing joy to Tasmanian winters since 2004. The state’s original marquee winter event, has become known as Australia’s premiere celebration of the voice, attracting audiences of 30,000 people over two weeks.

Karen Lee Andrews has reconnected with her guitar, hitting new strides and a unique style, which can only be described as Oceanic Blues. And now this commanding woman of soul is back with her original music and her EP “Far From Paradise” to set stages alight. The depths of her voice unlimited, she is already a fast festival favourite. Karen has that rare gift to communicate the unspeakable. Oceanic Blues is the newest sub-genre of the Blues. Oceania’s narrative tradition and the introduction of American Blues, Soul and Gospel since the 1960s, has shaped this distinctive style. The roots of the sound are gritty guitar, glowing valves, lush tremolo and deep reverb in a distinctively fluid Oceanic expression. This sound carries the mood and tones of Oceania expressed in rich, warm vocal tones. Karen Lee Andrews debuts her new sound and EP “Far from Paradise”. This EP mines the vibrant blues and soul at the heart of her musical heritage. Andrews mostly tours as a formidable trio, teaming up with Yanya Boston on drums and Adam Ventoura on bass – two exceptional musicians. Each musician is outstanding in his or her own right, but the dynamic of the group is exhilarating to witness! The trio delivers a classic hard-hitting blues rock. $50 entry includes band and a pizza 🍕 of your choice 7pm doors 8.30pm bands 12am late night band open late Lazybones Lounge Restaurant & Bar is a COVID Safe ✅.
