Felicity Lawless, Sheoak Shack, Sunday

Felicity Lawless is a one-womyn, gypsy/folk experience stolen from the stars and singing her way home. Jimi Hendrix-inspired guitar riffs meet soul and reggae for tea to discuss creation of the most beautiful melodies ever unleashed. Welcome to the soul of Felicity Lawless. Her love of all musics of the world is evident in her worldly sound. As a major songwriter for Anarchist Duck and Bertha Control, Flawless perhaps is better known for her funk, reggae and rhymes. Stripped from her bands, she sings a new breed of reggaefolk with deeply moving and inspired lyrics.

See her at the Sheaoak Shack on Sunday.
