Enigmatic and excited Byron local, Gyan, is joined by John Hoffman and the Con Artists for a spectacular show at the Mullum Bowlo on Friday night.

The 80s pop star, 90s global drifter and new millennium poet-recluse had platinum sales and won an ARIA award for her debut album.

She took out a Sydney Theatre Award 2008 for sell-out Sydney Opera House shows with Michael Leunig.

Gyan will be on the national Morning of the Earth tour in January and at the Melbourne Recital Hall in April, again  collaborating with Leunig.

 Recording-wise, Gyan has yet again blown away national reviewers with the artistically beautiful and truly genre-defying album Superfragilistically, which was runner-up Sydney Morning Herald Best Adult Album 2010.

‘… this slow-moving and sometimes staggeringly beautiful record feels like an overlooked classic from the vaults when singer-songwriters ruled the roost, circa 71,’ wrote Noel Mengel in the Brisbane Courier Mail.

‘… is it possible to be totally original? Certainly Gyan seems to elude easy categorisation in her determination to find sounds, silences and lyrics… It is intensely beautiful, emotionally honest, sensitive and seductive,’ mused Bruce Elder in the SMH

Gyan performs with John Hoffman and the Con Artists at the Mullum Bowlo on Friday at 8pm. $15/12 at the door.
