Phoenix is part of a new crop of empowered and com

Phoenix is part of a new crop of empowered and compelling songwriters said Clare Bowditch, who won best female artist at this years ARIAs. Phoenix will be one of those forerunners who, in years to come, makes us continually proud to be in the midst of such a vivacious, independent, music-making culture, said Clare. Phoenixs music incorporates elements of blues, folk and the spoken word. Phoenix reckons her music is fuelled by a social consciousness and she hopes to incite a spontaneous dialogue with her audience, creating an atmosphere of empowerment and change. Catch her next Thursday, November 30, when she features for the last Songwriters Collective gig for the year. There will be 10 songwriters doing two songs each as well as Phoenixs featured bracket. It all happens at the Tatts Hotel in Lismore. $3 gets you in and the riffs start at 8.30pm.
