Janelle Ashley presents Neo Soul Essentials

Friday 15 October 10.30pm

Kickstart your weekend with a night of non-stop neo-soul hits. The music that silkily blends elements of jazz, soul, R&B and hip-hop to create the hot, steamy and sultry genre we all know and love. Founded by 90’s artists such as Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, J Dilla, The Roots – expect to hear their greatest musical concoctions sung and played live by Janelle Ashley backed by Perth’s greatest upcoming musicians.

Janelle may be petite, but her voice is far from it. Power and range you would have to hear yourself to believe it. Coupled with the sassiest tone and attitude you couldn’t dare to ignore. She and her exceptionally talented line-up have been mastering their craft at the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) in areas of jazz and contemporary. Party with them as they bring the most impressive display of musicianship to Perth’s beloved Ellington Stage.
