Connell is touring NSW & the ACT in Ooct 2019. Now based in Castlemaine, Connell has a devoted following on the East Coast, and you can see why. Even her soundcheck is impressive. A commanding voice inspired by blues and the Australian sound, Connell is steeped in anglo celtic folk and writes from the heart. Her guitar style is unique, invoking light and shade to devastating effect, shadowing a voice that can whisper as powerfully as she can shout. Connell is not a performer at home on any stage, but be warned- you are in for a real show. This is not just any night. The former frontwoman of five piece Stray Hens, Connell is the creator and host of web series An Otherwise Quiet Room, and is now based in Castlemaine, writing a new solo album. Prolific, intense, devastating. Mandy Connell.
