6:15 - Leigh Carriage: ‘Weave’ Album Launch

Following up on her highly acclaimed album “Mandarin Skyline” which drew a nomination for the 2014 Australian Bell Awards, this outing sees Carriage digging deeper into her past and drawing upon her vast knowledge of genres. Blessed with stunning crystal clear tone and pitch her nuanced delivery, masterful storytelling and compositions mesh divinely, weaving stories ancient and new. There’s a timeless quality to her singing, likened to water flowing over river stones.

“My parents were weavers; my mother of wool, fabrics, the soil and healing words and my father the repairer of broken toys, car engines and skinned knees. I follow in their footsteps weaving melody and word.  Joni Mitchell wrote ‘we are condemned to wires and hammers, strike every chord that you feel’. Welcome to Weave an evening of music weaving wood, metal, muscle, wire and heart.”
