Alissa Arnason is a self-confessed working-class Patsy Cline, but a bit more ethereal.  

If you’re about to shelve Alissa Arnason amongst the other folk/country artists in your library, dust off that shelf and think again, for Arnason is in a league of her own. Conceived in the prairie town of Mozart SK ( ..yes that’s right), on Schubert St, (yes, right again..) it’s as if the stars had already decided music would be her path in life. 

By day, however, Arnason works as a cook for gold miners and treeplanters in bush camps. These bush camps are so remote that we’ve never heard of them, and it’s this nomadic, brave existence along with the deep submergence into nature, that make this woman, and her music what they are. Songs about being tired from work, the relentless passing of time, memories, unconventional ways of living, along with love songs and lullabies to nature and the universe.


With support from local duo Lord Knows.
