Naomi Keyte + Leah Senior (VIC) + Mary Webb

Naomi Keyte gives a voice to voiceless things: trees, colours, water, the very air we breathe.

Musically there is a delicate meeting of electronic pulses and rhythms, and physical vibration: nylon guitars, violins and pianos. Keyte and her band write and perform minimalist alt-folk pop music that sings to the heart and human experience. Their music resounds with the restraint and warmth of artists like Joni Mitchell, Julia Holter, Sharon Van Etten and Sufjan Stevens.

Keyte’s words are ‘beautifully simplistic and are drawn together to tell fascinating stories which she accompanies with vividly painted images’ (June Murtagh, The AU Review). Thoughtfully produced, the group’s music has a narrative in every string plucked and bowed, and a message conveyed in every beat struck and muted.
