Saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist Oscar Lavën with special guest, Wallace Gollan, bring an exclusive show to Capital Blues Inc. Nothing but raging rock n roll sax bangers in tribute to the great 1950s R&B/Blues saxophonists Sam Butera, King Curtis and Earl Bostic.
Rock n roll that jellyroll with Darren ‘The Fonz’ Mathiassen, drums Patrick ‘Knuckle sandwich ‘ Bleakley, bass and Al ‘Forget about it ‘Campbell on guitar.
Wallace’s music has been described as a vibrant mosaic of soul, hip-hop and pop, her trademark jazz-influenced vocals and magnetic presence demonstrating her evolution as a songwriter to watch. Her refreshing talent has granted her the opportunity to work in the studio with Dutch legends Kraak & Smaak, Australian hip-hop staples Thundamentals, Botswana-raised, Melbourne-based rapper Sampa The Great, laying vocals over beats by Godriguez, and working closely with producer Simon Cohen (behind Justin Bieber’s global #1 song “Love Yourself”).
Celebrated for her electric live show, Wallace has previously toured alongside the likes of Rag ‘N’Bone Man (UK), Morcheeba (UK), Little Simz (UK), Jordan Rakei (AU/UK), Gabriel Garzon Montano (USA) Masego (USA), Electric Wire Hustle (NZ), Kllo, Winston Surfshirt, Ngaiire and The Kite String Tangle.
Consistently connecting the dots between genres and influences, Wallace’s artistic identity has become uniquely recognisable, with her jazz training and distinct harmonies captivating audiences around the globe.
