SUNSHINE COAST based teen singing/songwriting sensation, Alys Longmate is set to launch her debut full-length album, Magic at a free live concert at The J Theatre Noosa. Magic is a 14 track musical masterpiece comprising all original material and a celebration of Alys' jazz-pop-folk style. Evocative vocals, sophisticated story-telling, kooky chord progressions and strong, memorable melodies combine to reveal a musical maturity well beyond Alys' 16 years.
Already a seasoned performer at music festivals nationwide and having appeared to rave reviews at a recent pre-Grammy Awards performance in Los Angeles, Alys and her production team have been planning, recording and producing Magic for the past 18 months.
After such a long time in the making, Alys says that she can't wait to perform Magic live on stage with her five piece band and promises an inspiring and enchanting night for those attending:
"It is my absolute dream to share a little bit of Magic with attentive audiences," Alys said.
"As well presenting the album, there will be some extra magical moments included in the evening including the freakishly flexible contortionist and aerial acrobat, Lucia Carbines; the magnificent and mysterious magician, Sean Tretheway; and performance poet, Danksta Downunder."
"I'd love for people to come to the album launch and share our adventures in that world. Although the album will definitely be available for sale, the performance and magical, spontaneous experiences will be provided at no charge."
