Live and lush – catch songstress Emma Dean in an intimate one-off performance at Brisbane Powerhouse

Live and lush – catch songstress Emma Dean in an intimate one-off performance at Brisbane Powerhouse

We know we’ve harped on about how much we missed live music during lockdown, but the fact bears repeating – nothing compares to the spontaneity, joy and pure entertainment of seeing artists do their thing in person. One performer who really embodies the spirit of live entertainment is Emma Dean, a multifaceted Brisbane artist who will sing, play and work her way into your heart with her repertoire of pure folk gems. Performing for one night only at Brisbane Powerhouse on Saturday January 30, Emma is set to bring her intimate stage show to life again – and it’s sure to dazzle you.

Making her return to the stage is Emma Dean, a musician with layers, complexity, depth and emotion like no other. With her work being compared to greats such as Tori Amos, you can draw the conclusion that Emma’s music is something of a folk-cabaret hybrid come to life in glorious technicolour – and the comparisons check out as she has shared stages with the likes of Kate Miller-Heidke, Katie Noonan, Placebo, Macy Gray and loads more. She’s also a staunch advocate for the healing power of group singing, having conceived her popular (and award-winning) Cheep Trill choir right here in Brisbane.

So, what exactly does the Emma Dean live experience entail? In the post-Covid landscape, you can expect a rich and layered performance jam-packed with hits from Emma’s extensive back catalogue, as well as some never-before-heard tunes as a sonic treat. Audiences will even be in for some special guest appearances from Emma’s brood of fantastically talented friends – so trust us when we say this is one night you won’t want to miss. If you like your live shows a little bit weird and imperfect laced with a heady dose of passion, Emma Dean and her baby grand piano have got you covered.

Ready to be charmed by this soothing songstress? You can nab tickets to Emma Dean’s solo show at Brisbane Powerhouse here – but be quick because places are strictly limited.
