Harry Mitchell- piano
Zac Grafton- bass
Daniel Susnjar- drums

In celebration of my first year out of uni and into the "real world," I would be so excited to see some mates at this gig. Come watch me have traumatic uni assessment flashbacks as I attempt to create listenable sounds with my mouth hole. Will be doing new tunes, and old tunes, and old tunes that sound like new tunes.

Graduating last year from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts with Honours for the Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, she has performed in Europe playing at the Terni Jazz Festival in Umbria and at the Jazz Dock in Prague.

She draws inspiration from artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Katie Noonan, Billie Holiday, Norma Winstone and Haitus Kayote, bringing a unique style to a classic genre of music, with what has been described as a “pure and haunting tone.”

Earlier last year after being selected as one of six finalists Australia-wide, Priscilla competed for the esteemed James Morrison scholarship at the Generations in Jazz Festival in Mount Gambier.

Priscilla is currently travelling and performing both here and in the Eastern States and is presently fine tuning her own original material, with the hopes of recording her debut album for release early next year.
