Nerissa Campbell (New York)

Wednesday 05 June 7.00pm

Nerissa Campbell’s music is a fine blend of styles dipped in a smoky beer batter of late night living. There’s an easy, swingin’ film noir feeling that evokes dark bars and mystery dames and she is wistful and melancholy, like Billie Holiday singing a Nick Cave song. The blues is here, too, but it plays hide and seek with space and sound, creating a depth of feeling beyond the obvious. A graduate of WAAPA, Nerissa has called NYC home since 2001, performing regularly at well-known haunts such as 55 Bar, The Jazz Gallery, Fat Cat, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Zinc, & Rockwood Music Hall. A long term member of NY’s Balinese  Gamelan Dharma Swara, she has also been the feature vocalist in post-metal band,  A Storm of Light, and was the recipient of an Australian Arts Council New Works grant for her album, After The Magic, a project that explores the use of Balinese Gamelan, a jazz trio, fleeting guitars and moody instrumentals.

Nerissa has performed at Basilica Soundscape (Hudson NY), Festival Centro (Bogota Colombia), Roadburn Music Festival (Tilburg, NL), Singapore Arts Festival, Stanford Jazz Festival (Stanford, USA), Perth International Arts Festival (Perth, AUS), Asymmetry Festival (Wroclaw, PO), as well as at clubs throughout Europe, USA, Canada, & Australia. Her music was featured in ‘Freddy’s – the Documentary’ (screened at Brooklyn International Film Festival), ‘Stranger Love’ (original music performed as part of Eva Minemar & Tony Lepore’s play). She has been a part of performative literary readings, modern dance pieces, off-Broadway plays, and a 32-piece orchestra.

Campbell has released four albums under her own label,  Crooked Mouth Music: Paint Me Orange (2003), Musings of a Telescopic Tree (2009), Blue Shadows (2012), and  After The Magic (2016).

“[Nerissa Campbell] explores a tricky, dark emotional landscape, lit with fleeting flashes of joy. You can get caught up in the late night jazz club ambience, but there’s always some hint of lost love and loneliness lurking around the corner; the New York City streets she sings about are deserted and poorly lit.”  – Little Village Magazine
 
“Smoky voiced songs of good bourbon and bad love affairs” – Time Out London
