Noosa Jazz Festival

NOOSA JAZZ ADDS FOR A MASSIVE LINE UP 2014!

27 May 2014

 It’s here!  Introducing the 2nd round of Artists joining us at the 2014 Noosa Jazz Festival!

 
We’ve been busy working on adding more artists into the Festival Village just for you and we’re thrilled to be able to share with you who else will be joining us at the festival this September!
 
We’re excited to announce that we’ll be joined by STEVE CLISBY, EMMA PASK, JAN PRESTON, MILAN, THE ROYAL JELLIES, BEATEN BODIES, INGRID JAMES, the JOHN WITHERS BAND and THE WINTER OF REASON!
 
These artists join the already announced VINCE JONES, GRACE KNIGHT with SCREAM BIG BAND, GALAPAGOS DUCK, GREG GOULD and THE CHASE, LAURA BERNAY, the AUSTRALIAN ARMY BAND BRISBANE, JUZZIE SMITH, FEEL THE MANOUCHE, ANGE TAKATS and CARL WOCKNER to name just a few.
To get you in the mood here’s a little bit about our artists!
 
Respected within the music industry, STEVE CLISBY and EMMA PASK both became national sweethearts through their time on Channel Nine’s THE VOICE with both artists having judges turn their chairs and STEVE CLISBY making it through to battle rounds.
 
“I visit Noosa often because my 11 year old son lives nearby. I have a favourite Japanese restaurant there and love the beaches.  It’s one of the few places besides Sydney that I’d consider living. I’m addicted to the climate and beaches.  For me, jazz is the highest form of musical performance simply because you compose spontaneously.  It should flow from the deepest part of your emotional experience and be transformed into melody and rhythm. When four or five people are doing that together and feeling each other it’s ecstasy”, said STEVE CLISBY.
 
EMMA PASK is a stalwart of the jazz industry and one of the most celebrated performers of the genre. Legend James Morrison recognised Emma’s potential early in her career and since then she has remained a fixture on many of his albums and live shows.
"I'm thrilled to be a part of the 2014 Noosa Jazz Festival, Noosa holds a very special place in my heart and I can't wait to play for the ever wonderful audiences of Noosa”, said EMMA PASK.
Steve and Emma will be performing on the main stage within the Festival Village at Noosa Heads Lions Park.
 
Back by popular demand and performing mainstage shows in the festival village this year is Australia’s foremost Boogie Piano player and composer JAN PRESTON. 
 
Jan’s stunning ability as a boogie woogie and ragtime piano player is matched by a richly resonant voice and a joyful and communicative personality, which leaves audiences mesmerized. 
 
You’ll also be able to catch Jan’s Boogie Woogie Piano masterclass in the festival village this year so those of you who want to learn some tips are in for a special treat!
 
A perfect complement to the festival this year will be the fresh sounds that MILAN will bring to the stage.  Milan effortlessly blends soul, jazz, electro beats and laid back, hip-hop tinged pop, overlayed with sweet melting vocals. Her honest, incisive lyrics speak clearly and imaginatively.
 
Milan Ring is a confident songwriter of exceptional talent who plays impossible electric guitar runs as well as keys, superbly complimenting her trademark dreamscape voice.
 
Her song writing style is genre bending, continually evolving and best described as ‘future, urban soul’.  MILAN’s music is original, borne of modern urban influences including Frank Ocean, Lauryn Hill and Hiatus Kaiyote.
 
MILAN will also conduct a song writing workshop in the festival village.  Have a listen to MILAN’s debut EP Glassy Eyes here: www.soundcloud.com/milanring
 
The ‘Festival Village’ is the home and heart of the Noosa Jazz Festival and offers 2 stages presenting over 45 performances including main stage performances, workshops, master classes, jazz river cruises, the legend series, big bands, swing bands, soul bands, jazz bands and Australian Jazz royalty.
 
“This year’s festival is going to be one of the best yet.  We’ve worked extremely hard to secure the right talent to ensure there is something for everyone.  Attending the Noosa Jazz Festival is about an experience.  It’s the performances, the atmosphere, the location and the memories which we want to help make”, said Ms Vickii Cotter, Festival Director – Noosa Jazz Festival.
