“Soulful, sublime and shining!” Three words sum up this Melbourne based, exotic singer-songwriter from Sri Lanka.
Suzette Herft is a contemporary troubadour and award winning songwriter with a sublime voice. She shines with a natural grace and presence that lights up any stage. Her live performances captivate the audience and she has been described as ‘charismatic… with her heart in tune with her world’ (The Australian Songwriter – Australian Songwriters’ Association).
When Suzette sings, she invites the listener to dive deeper into the heart of what it is to be human and the grace to overcome life’s obstacles. She turns the looking glass onto her own life with lessons of finding joy from sorrow and distilling the light from the darkness. Her music is indeed medicine for the soul!
Her show at Humph Hall will include her widely acclaimed tribute show to her hero Joan Baez which she has performed at numerous festivals around Australia, including to standing ovations at recent Port Fairy Folk Festivals. With her band, she has recently breathed life into the songs and the story of Emmylou Harris – another performer she admires.
Her songs have been finalists in the Australian Independent Music Awards over the years.
Suzette was awarded the 2019 Folk Victoria Award for services to Folk Music and shares this honour with many prominent figures in the music industry.
