TAASHA COATES FROM THE AUDREYS
DEBUT SOLO ALBUM IS OUT NOW!
ANNOUNCES A STRING OF TOUR DATES
With success as the voice of the multi ARIA Award winning folk-rock darlings The Audreys, singer/ songwriter Taasha Coates has now released her first solo album ‘Taasha Coates and Her Melancholy Sweethearts’ and has been on the road for a string of tour dates that will no doubt keep fans happy.
During The Audreys temporary hiatus, Taasha kept busy in the studio recording with fellow singer-songwriter and producer Shane Nicholson; showing off a new voice through her solo material.
I’m really proud of these songs. They’re raw and real and very personal, and they were a lot of fun to record and have been great to play live. I think maybe for the first time in my life I feel like an actual songwriter.
With elements of sauciness and sadness, in a more personal and direct style; the album sees Taasha display her incredible, enchanting vocals as she flirts with the Alt-Country/ Americana genre. The first single from the album‘This House is Gonna Burn’ is complimented by a truly stunning clip SEE HERE
In September, Taasha will be a guest songwriter at SongHubs in Brisbane before heading off to Austin, to House of Song, where she is 1 of 3 Adelaide Song-writers selected to participate in a songwriting residency working on some unfinished Al Brumley songs. Taasha will then head to Nashville to showcase her new tunes at prestigious Americanafest.
