After 28 years of singing and touring as one-third of The Waifs, Vikki Thorn returns home to find her own voice in the wild places of WA.
Known for her evocative songwriting including Bridal Train, Sun Dirt Water & Take Me To Town, her new solo material was inspired by 10 years of living in the canyons of Utah. In these songs, she explores the recurring theme of connection to place and portrays the humour and heartbreak of life just south of Hell’s Backbone.
Renowned for her powerful vocals and unique blues harp playing, Thorn is a dynamic and passionate performer. Her songs weave through country and blues and slightly sidestep away from the folk format of The Waifs to indulge her love of the old R&B singing style.
For this special concert Vikki returns to Fremantle Arts Centre for an intimate concert in picnic mode. So bring a rug and good friends to huddle under the stars with for a night of evocative WA songwriting.
Her forthcoming debut album is set to be released early 2021. Vikki will be joined by Ben Franz and Simon & Tammy London aka The Red Tails.
