Twenty-one-year-old, English-born, Sydney-based singer/songwriter Odette (not to be confused with Perth’s own Odette Mercy) is embarking on her first ever national tour this August, playing in Perth on August 17 at the Newport Hotel in Fremantle and August 18 at Amplifier Bar.
Since the age of seventeen Georgia Odette has been writing songs for what would become her debut album To A Stranger. Influenced by her South African mother’s love of soul and funk and her grandfather (a jazz pianist), her style has been described as eclectic—fluttering from spoken word into warm, soulful vocals, with arrangements circling through soul, jazz and pop.
Her first single Watch Me Read You was released in 2017 and since then Odette has worked with Canadian producer Damian Taylor (Björk, Arcade Fire, The Killers, The Temper Trap) to create her debut album To A Stranger, due to be released on July 6, 2018 through EMI.
Odette hits Perth in August playing at The Newport Hotel on Friday, August 17 and Amplifier Bar on Saturday, August 18.
