Multiple ARIA award winning songstress Megan Washington has announced she will bring her jazz-tinged tunes to audiences at two intimate shows in Brisbane and Melbourne this April, in support of her new single Who Are You.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2009 Megan Washington has walked a path of highs and introduced the music world to her own brand of pure eclectic shining pop. After winning Triple J’s Unearthed Artist competition in 2009, she went on to nab the inaugural Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition followed by the 2010 APRA Songwriting award and a bunch of ARIAs just 12 months later.
Washington spent the beter part of 2013 locked up in London, reconnecting with Australian record producer Samuel Dixon (Sia, Adele) to record her second full length album, yet to be titled, which is due out a little later this year.
Washington’s latest single Who Are You was recorded in both London’s RAK Studios and Peter Gabriel’s New World and features a special guest. “Stella Mozgawa from Warpaint is playing the drums,” Washington told Triple J. “She came over to London and we spent a couple of weeks recording the tracks. Pretty much anything awesome has her on it.”
Before her intimate performances, Megan Washington will also appear at Sydney’s Lost Picnic event at Centennial Park, on Sunday 23 March. Pre-sale tickets for the Melbourne and Brisbane show are available to Frontier members from Monday, 3rd March at 2pm AEDT until Tuesday, 4th March at 2pm AEDT.
General public on sale from 9am local time, Thursday 6 March.
