Mietta & Rosie Henshaw (SYD) Official Melb’ Album Launch
Wednesday 12th November 2014
DOUBLE BILL…NOT TO BE MISSED!!!
INTRODUCING ROSIE HENSHAW (OFFICIAL MELB’ ALBUM LAUNCH) …
You may have seen her wielding a Sitar & traipsing the globe with Australian band Old Man River, or donning an eccentric costume singing her lungs out as lead singer of Sydney party band The Bakery. Or groovin’ on a Cajon with songstress Ngaiire. ROSIE’s musical chameleon-like superpowers, over the years, have proven there to be no doubt that she has music oozing from every pore.
With an upbringing spent between a boarding school in the Himalayas of India, the laid back shores of Australia & the fast paced buzz of Hong Kong, Rosie Henshaw has always been surrounded by eclectic sounds. These have been a large influence in her life, and given her the opportunity to pick up many interesting instruments along the way.
This year started off with a bang for Rosie, with the release of her debut album Rosie & The Bees, receiving them rave reviews. Rosie will be performing the OFFICIAL Melbourne launch of this album on Wednesday 12th November at the Paris Jazz Cat, on a double bill with her good friend and musical companion, Mietta.
Rosie has also had a successful stint on The Voice Australia 2014 on team Kylie!
Some of Rosie’s career highlights include the Spirit of Soul Festival in Sydney, several shows at Parramasala, a festival of South Asian Arts in NSW, and in 2012 she was invited to play a headline spot at Takatsuki Jazz Festival in Osaka Japan, as part of her debut solo tour.
