Folk rock band The Audreys’ Taasha Coates is heading off on her debut solo outing, with tour dates around Australia with a Bunbury appearance on November 5.
Taasha said her solo music writing project was very different from The Audreys and was an almost visceral experience.
“It was really hard to open up and write music that is so personal to me, it’s something I haven’t done before,” she said.
“It was like opening up a wound and bleeding all over the place.
“I think some people hit the ground running when they’re writing music and it can be very personal off the bat but I’m not a very sentimental person so there was this part of me pulling back.”
Her tour will feature music from her album, Taasha Coates and Her Melancholy Sweethearts which Taasha said features songs about deep emotional feelings about love, lust, sex and domestic violence.
Taasha hopes everyone will come to the show with an open mind and a positive attitude.
“Lots of the songs can be quite sad and do deal with some heavy topics but our music has always been on the darker side,” she said.
“But I hope everyone who comes does so feeling happy and leaves feeling emotionally touched, that’s my goal,” she said.
Tickets are available at The Prince of Wales Hotel pre-sale and at the door on November 5.
