NIMA Presents: Kate Wadey @ The Underground
8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Kate Wadey is quickly becoming a voice in Australian jazz to be reckoned with. Her upcoming album A Hundred Years From Today is the perfect introduction to Kate’s effortless charm and sophistication that so many jazz fans are becoming familiar.
Warmly embraced by a band of excellent and celebrated accompanying musicians, Wadey sings standards selected for their particularly fine character with a sweet, sure and rich voice. Without fuss or bravado but with pure assurance, she navigates the emotions and melody with equal skill; a brilliant young artist displaying a level of craft beyond her years, and producing fine, characterful and swinging jazz fare for the ears.
“Kate is one of the best singers that the Sydney jazz scene has encountered for a very long time.” – Geoff Bull.
“Kate has a relaxed and charming stage presence, and brings freshness & vitality to whatever song she is singing. Sharing the stage with her and experiencing her jazziness is a real pleasure.” – George Washingmachine.
