How would you describe your music?
Describing music is hard for me as I have so many influences. Mostly my music comes from a very soulful place. I grew up listening to artists such as Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding. I think that reflects in what I do. If i had so categorize it i would say something contemporary soul/R&B.
Are you working on an LP?
Right now I am in the studio working on the upcoming EP. We just completed an Indie GoGo campaign earlier this year. The goal is to release in the fall.
What’s your background – how did you get to this point in your career?
I’m an Australian born soul singer. I have been in the USA for nearly 7 years. After a failed record deal in Melbourne I came to the US to try my luck and fell in love with America. I have lived between LA and Nashville, TN. All the while, writing, recording and performing. I have found that consistency is key in anything you do.
What can folks expect at you NoHo Plaza performance?
You can expect and eclectic set of soul, blues and funk. With a full band of incredibly talented musicians behind me, there will be little bit for everyone. I also love a good power balled so naturally I’ll throw one or two in for good measure.
KEEP UP WITH MAGENTA HARLEY
