Fresh on the heels of a 32-date European tour Canadian soul songstress Ann Vriend is returning to Australia to promote a single from her upcoming new album For The People In The Mean Time.

ann-vriend-This past year Vriend was busy in the recording studio while also delivering her unique brand of retro soul, blues, and pop to thrilled audiences in Europe, Canada, Australia, and Malaysia.

This past July she won the nationwide Canadian She’s the One contest at the Ottawa Bluesfest in the solo category.

Onstage Vriend tells hilarious tales of the road and always has the audience laughing in between her dynamic songs, which combine her poetic, often double-entendre lyrics with classic soul piano in the style of Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin.

Ann Vriend with support Andrew Veivers. Doors open from 7.30pm, show begins at 8.30pm. Tickets $15 online, or $18 at the door unless sold out.
