LEIGH CARRIAGE ENSEMBLE Chris Tarr, Simon Jeans, Dylan Hooper, Steve Russell & Pete Jeavons.
Following up on her highly acclaimed “Mandarin Skyline” which drew a nomination for the 2014 Australian Bell Awards, this outing sees Carriage digging deeper into her past and drawing upon her vast knowledge of genres. Blessed with stunning crystal clear tone and pitch her nuanced delivery, masterful story and compositions mesh divinely, weaving stories ancient and new. There’s a timeless quality to her singing, likened to water flowing over river stones.
