Wanita and Her Wild Women Live at the Piping Hot Chicken Shop

Friday 11th October 

Tickets just $20 online

Wanita is more than a country singer, she is a country song! Raised on the Murray River in Yorta Yorta country, she began singing along to Loretta Lynn and Hank Williams cassettes long before she started school. Wanita always knew she was born to be a country star, and dreamed of performing at the Grand Ole Opry from the moment she learned to strum a guitar and press record.

Her music career has taken her to great heights including a tour of Sweden, and some lessor known dusty tracks as she juggled the demands of motherhood and autism.  With three successful albums under her belt, Wanita finally realized her lifelong dream by recording an album in Nashville Tennessee.

I’m Wanita is a scorching and honest collection of self and friend penned songs, produced by US country legend Billy Yates and recorded in the Larry Beaird Studios.

The album has captured the dichotomy of Wanita’s life and torrid mood swings, her monumental stage presence, her exceptional vocal capacity, and her deep connection with traditional country music. She sings directly to the emotionally undernourished, the disenfranchised and the downtrodden.

I’m Wanita is set to be officially released early 2020, along with a feature length documentary about her life and music.

On this tour, she will be accompanied by a couple of other "wild women", the singer truck driver from Katherine NT Kate Oliver, and the scallywag troubadour of Newcastle Gleny Rae Virus (know for her work with the Junes). The backing band is made up of crack honkytonk musicians Rob Luckey and his Lucky Bastards.

Opening the evening is the incomparable Jackie Marshall showcasing her unique interpretations of 60s folk and blues classics from her new album "Songs from the Start" alongside a care-filled selection of her own well-love tunes. At times intimate, at others infinitely raucous, Marshall's vocal delivery warmth humour and playfulness will captivate you.
