Saturday - Special Jazz by the Bay presentation

$35 per person, 7.00-9.00pm New York Artist, Nerissa Campbell, Tickets

Nerissa Campbell, an "enigmatic art-rock/chamber jazz singer" (New York Music daily) concludes her multi-city Australian Tour at Jazz by The Bay this June. On June 2nd she'll be reuniting her with her longtime friend and colleague, Daniel Susnjar (drums), as well as Harry Mitchell (piano) & Zac Grafton (bass) - the evening will include original music, both new and from her acclaimed past four albums. Campbell's "beautifully ethereal" (JazzSpeaks) music weaves its way through somber pop-ballads, bluesy folk songs, moody instrumentals, and a lyricism full of thought and space. She has developed a unique and deeply personal writing and performing voice - immersed in the jazz tradition, but strongly forging her own direction. The blues is in her wistful and melancholy voice, but it plays hide and seek with space and sound, creating a depth of feeling beyond the obvious. She creates a fine blend of styles dipped in a smoky batter of late night living.

A graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, she has called New York home since 2001, performing 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 of original music 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).
