After leaving her mark on the Australian cultural landscape with The Clouds, Jodi Phillis has returned to her default mode of acoustic singer songwriter, mining the deep seem of neo-romantic folk pop.Jodi will perform songs from her new album ‘Becoming’, many of which were born out of grief from the loss of both her parents in the last 3 years, as well as a selection of songs from earlier solo albums and a few favourites from her other musical incarnations. Jodi will be stripping it bare and singing her songs solo, with just a guitar for accompaniment.Real, raw, vulnerable and life affirming are a few words to describe what you will experience from Jodi’s performance.Come along and hear Jodi on this most intimate occasion.
