Larissa Tandy To Return To Australia For National Dates

Australian-born Canadian based Larissa Tandy is heading home to Australia for a series of gigs to support her new album ‘The Grip’.

Larissa will tour Australia across June before heading to the USA to Nashville where she is the recipient of The Australia Council’s prestigious Nashville Songwriter Residency.

‘The Grip’ documents an 18-month period in Larissa’s life. “To say these songs came out of a difficult time is an understatement. When I wasn’t in and out of hospital, I was in and out of a lawyers office. I was fighting for my health, and fighting to keep my home, and everyone I loved was dying in horrible ways. I was shaken, and I was suffering. But so what? We all are. I didn’t believe in anything anymore, not even death, so I spent every day just trying to grow enough food to live on, and writing to make sense of it all.”

The album features guests Liz Stringer, Tracy McNeil, Cat Leahy (Sal Kimber), Ben Franz (The Waifs), John Flanagan and Ryan Tandy.
