Sydney based future-folk/soul artist Ngaiire (pron. Nighree) will perform songs from her upcoming debut album Lamentations at The Bridge Hotel Castlemaine on Saturday 9th March. Ngaiire’s peculiar vocal arrangements and rare sense of soul, reminiscent of vocal greats gone by, sets her well apart from other singers.

Standing on the triple j’s 2010 Next Crop list alongside Kimbra, Lanie Lane, and The Jezabels, Ngaiire was born in one of the last great frontiers of the world, Papua New Guinea, migrating to Australia at just 16. Since then she has been building a reputation for herself as one of the country’s most recognisable and dynamic vocalists and performers combined with her love for uniquely flamboyant stage attire. Moving to Sydney after a brief stint studying for a Jazz degree at the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Ngaiire embarked on a long period of touring overseas and in Australia with roots collective Blue King Brown, mentor and electronic maestro Paul Mac and gypsy jazz outfit Monsieur Camembert lead by ostentatious front man and Camelot venue owner Yaron Hallis.

Ngaiire has finally settled on an eclectic sonic identity that is uniquely hers and one that can easily transcend universal territories with its electronic soul elements as well as gratify the folk sphere with her great adoration for storytelling and heartfelt laments. Catch her at The Bridge Hotel Castlemaine with Ainslie Wills supporting on Saturday 9th March.
