Melbourne singer-songwriter Jess Locke is eager to showcase her sound to a Bunbury audience.
Locke will deliver her collection of indie-pop-rock tracks at the Prince of Wales Hotel on Friday, November 24.
The artist is thrilled to be taking Bunbury and Western Australian audiences a memorable musical journey.
“I’ve been to Perth a couple of times but never for one or two days, so I’m keen to check out what is around and go for a bit of a drive,” she said.
“It’s all going to be new to me, I don’t really have any expectations so it’s going to be exciting just to go and explore somewhere completely new and play to a new crowd.
The show is part of her Universe album tour, heading to venues in Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth before reaching Bunbury.
The new album features songs created at different times in her career.
“I released my last record in 2015 and since then I have been playing with my new band and we’ve been jamming and working together for the past few years,” she said.
“This record feels like the outcome of that process.”
Locke’s work has been described as music to “waltz, cry and fall asleep to”.
The singer-songwriter said exploring and interacting with new places made the touring experience whole.
“You can often get used to playing to the same people in your own little bubble, in Melbourne or wherever you’re from, and it’s nice to go out and get some genuine reactions,” she said.
