Jessy Lanza’s high soulful vocals and house-inflected 90s R&B promise a woozy, late-night atmosphere. With the addition of a drummer for her first-ever Australian shows, Lanza will be out from behind the gear desk and free to weave her bright, steamy magic on one of the Festival’s most intimate stages.
Lanza’s silky R&B productions have been setting her apart since well before the 2013 debut Pull My Hair Back scored her a Polaris Prize nomination. Her incredible follow-up, Oh No, has been hailed as one of the best albums of 2016, seen her compared to Prince, and saw her build a warm, self-assured identity on the icy, hazier foundations of her debut. Never one to fade into the shadows, Lanza is a bold voice – as unafraid to challenge misperceptions about female artists in a male-dominated genre as she is to push the boundaries of pop and electronica in unexpected directions.
