“Her voice fits the moods, ranging from strong and rich to raw and desperate.” – The Australian
Award-winning vocalist Tina Harrod is one of Australia’s great singers and songwriters. Her jazz standards are all her own, while nodding respectfully to Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughan. Her own compositions are inventive, finely structured, and soulful. The past two years have seen Tina headline major festivals around Australia. These include sold-out performances at the Perth International Jazz Festival, Melbourne Jazz Festival, Mullumbimby Music Festival, and recently the Sydney Festival for two major shows with the Orszaczky Budget Orchestra.
Having just returned from Germany, where Tina appeared as part of bandmate Stu Hunter's The Migration project, Tina and her powerhouse band will present new music from her forthcoming album.

Neither coarse, gross, nor brutishly sensual, or in any way hog-esque, drummer/programmer Nick Meredith and guitarist Peter Koopman entreat you to experience a rare natural sighting of their musical brainchild Neutral Swine, to take you on an improvised journey through dark, evocative, ever-evolving soundscapes tinged with jazz, rock and electronica.
