Dancehall at Louse Point

5 Apr

New, free single download

I am so delighted to be able to bring you Dancehall at Louse Point, the first single from my debut solo record Close as a Slow Dance. In Gold Coast parlance – I’m stoked as! No, it wasn’t named for the PJ Harvey/John Parrish album per se, but the song was always called Dancehall and the ‘at Louse Point‘ just seemed so appropriate to the theme of a Fifties dancehall singer trying to get over a louse who broke her heart. Please have this free Bandcamp download to help me celebrate the record.

Single launch

Tonight, I play the Berlin launch show at Laika (Emser Str 131, Neukölln) with another ex-pat Australian, Jason Kenny, who launches his album Fugitive. Doors at 19:30. Music at 20:00. I’m on at 21:00. The after-party is at Bethanien in X-Berg.

Album launches – May the fourth be with you!

I’m doing two Berlin album launches, a club show at Heroes in Neukölln on International Star Wars Day, Friday 4 May AND a special Sofa Salon house concert at my place on my birthday Friday 11 May.

Plus I’m doing house concerts and club gigs across Germany and France through late May and June and a whole heap of Summer gigs. If you would like to host me for a house concert, email waspsummer [aet] gmail dot com

Welcome!

Greetings!

I’m told I look naughty in this pic, but I’ve just had a mouthful of custardy pinolata at Osteria Chiacchiera in Siena. I am nearly crying from foodal delight. It was my first time in Italy and I hope to return.

Welcome to my Wasp Summer blog. I’m a singer-songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, currently resident in the wondrous city of Berlin. I make Alt.Country Folk-Pop if you need a label – melodic, rootsy songs that I hope tell good stories. A friend said I had a “voice to break bottles and songs to break hearts.”

I’m out on tour in Europe throughout June and July 2011 with great Melbourne musician Water Music. Joining us for some of the shows is our friend, the Oslo-based Mark Steiner and His Problems.

I’ll update this blog with gossip, pics and tour information as we confirm shows and keep a diary for you of all the tour shenanigans. In the meantime, check me out online:

I also run a living room concert series in Berlin called Sofa Salon. If you’re in town, come and see some of the best Berlin-based and international singer-songwriters and poets perform in someone’s living room.

I don’t promise daily updates here but subscribe to my mailing list by sending an email to waspsummer [at] gmail.com and I’ll send you pretty emails every so often.

Liebe Grüße,
Wasp Summer
