Sophie Head, The Fairy Lights, Sarah Strashko @ SCALA

What’s up next at SCALA?

Winter. That’s what.

We can cry and complain about it or we can get cosy, get comfortable and get to the Wheaty on Thursday May 30th where a trifecta of talent take to the dais and treat all of us to some great winter grooves over a glass of smooth red. Or two. Check-out the line-up below and never take a dim view of Winter again.

SCALA Live @ The Wheaty

Thursday 30th May 2019

1. Sophie Head

Singer-songwriter Sophie Head breathes rich, summery vocals into mellow tunes of life and love. Inspired by folk, jazz and pop rock, she shares honest reflections on what it means to be human. Sophie returns to Adelaide after 6 years in Sydney, where she recorded and released her debut single, ‘Yours’. Her recent songwriting journey has opened her to exciting new expressions in her artistry, with new music and a debut EP set for release in 2019.

2. Sarah Straschko

From dusty red  Port-Augusta to the Barossa Valley Sarah Straschko has been performing soulful tunes likened to Joni Mitchel, Joan Baez,  jewel, Kate Miller Heidke and Laura Marling.

This 21-year old has been performing in bands and as a solo act from scrub to cities across the Australian coast capturing sweeping melodies and sweet yet powerful vocals all wrapped up in striking lyrics that are guaranteed to sooth any punter’s soul.

Having toured the East coast and Further as a part of an Album launch for the Americana artist Tristen Bird, Sarah is on the verge of releasing her own debut EP which looks to encompass Sarah’s rich tones, stunning delivery  and enlightened perspectives. Keep an eye on this young  songstress, she’s got some stories to tell that you might like to hear.
