Political Ember

Shes Canadian; shes green; shes a musician; and shes coming to the North Coast. Who is she? Ember Swift of course.

Ember Swift is overtly political in her music and in her life. She has played across Canada, the USA and Oz. When she performs at Coorabell Hall on Friday, September 22, she will have a band consisting of Lyndell Montgomery on bass and violin and Adam Bowman pounding the kit. Ember, of course, will be doing weird things with her guitar.

Her music is where art meets activism. She believes that through dialogue and exploration of global issues positive social changes can develop. Despite the state of much of the world, she is positive and doing her most to create that dialogue.

Her latest album The Dirty Pulse (her ninth) is a celebration of life and hope. (Activists need hope.) This is a very danceable CD and has new musical influences for her like South African styles. No doubt she will bring that celebration to Coorabell Hall.

Her special guest for the show is Liz Stringer, whose recently released album Soon has made a big splash in the music industry pool.

The doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

Tickets are $20 at the door.
