Ange Takats will host her 'Arva' album launch at Sandgate Town Hall tonight, 2 February at 7.30pm. Featuring: Ange Takats + Band (Steve Cook: Mandolin/Banjo, Caroline Trengove: Violin/Vocals, Tim Finnigan: Double Bass).
One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene - Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.
The Sunshine Coast local has spent the past year working on her much-anticipated second album - Arva - which blends Americana folk music with the sounds of 1930s jazz ... think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals.
Since releasing her debut album Aniseed Tea in 2009, Ange has spent the past few years performing at some of the country's top music festivals. Her worldly adventures and natural gift for storytelling have allowed her to develop a unique performance style - weaving lighthearted travel tales between darkly emotive songs.
The launch will take place at Sandgate Town Hall at 7.30pm (doors at 7.00pm). Tickets are $20 ($15 concession). For more information, visit www.musicbythesea.com.au.
