Misspent youth, adultery and substance abuse shaped these musical giants.

Sum up your musical sound in four words? Queens of the blues.
Will you do a different show at Fringe or what you'd normally do at regular gig? This show is different because the songs focus on these three iconic women: Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington — empress, lady and queen of blues. Channelling their songs on double bass, piano and voice.
Reckon you'll head out on the Frusic walking trail (taking in iconic music spots of Adelaide)? Sure, will check it out! Can't wait for the guide to be released.

Why should people come and see your show? Misspent youth, adultery and substance abuse shaped these musical giants. Songs from their short, tragic lives remain an inspiration today.
