Event description

Description

Abbe May tours Australia this February with band to
celebrate the release of her highly anticipated fifth
album “FRUIT” - A soul, pop & gospel juggernaut
that tells the story of her life as a gay woman, from
childhood through to present day.


May spent her late teens and early twenties
performing in Australia’s most notorious rock venues
and busted up studios, touring relentlessly in
unreliable tour vans in various solo and band
incarnations. With sly humour, Abbe graduated from
her critically acclaimed early explorations of rock
and blues to become a guitar-slinging, beat-driven,
iconic performer with an atmospheric cocktail of
sexy, indie riff-rock, gospel, soul and electronica.
Abbe is one of the strong women of the Australian
music industry with much respect across radio,
blogs and venues around the country. She is an
ARIA, WAM, AIR, AMP winning and nominated
artist, the hand-picked guitarist for Peter Garrett’s
Alter Egos and a champion of the LGBTQIA+
community. A constantly evolving artist, she has
performed at a myriad of summer music festivals
including Big Day Out, Meredith, and Pyramid, and
supported Neneh Cherry, The Black Keys, Midnight
Oil, The Motels, Art V’s Science, Tim Rogers, Adalita, Magic Dirt, Emiliana
Torrini, Killing Heidi, You Am I, Peter Garrett, Bob

Log III, Kim Salmon, Dave Graney and Claire
Moore.


Abbe has had huge success with ‘Design Desire’ in
2012, and ‘Kiss My Apocalypse’ in 2013. Associated
singles Mammalian Locomotion, Taurus Chorus,
Design Desire, Karmageddon, and T.R.O.U.B.L.E
were huge hits after all being added to high rotation
on Triple J. Her Like A Version of Ginuwine's Pony
is still widely considered a classic. Several of her
songs have been used in worldwide marketing
campaigns for Jagermeister as well as featuring in
HBO's Entourage and Jane Campion’s Top Of The
Lake.


Abbe is known as a phenomenal singer, songwriter
and guitarist, a poetic, insightful, hard-hitting lyricist,
performer and visual artist who harnesses and
openly expresses her sexuality without shame. She
has spent the past three years creating her fifth
studio album “FRUIT”, scheduled for release on
February 2, 2018, and it is her most succinct and
powerful declaration of identity yet. A melodic,
upbeat and soulful collection of songs made to
honour the lives of those who don't quite know how
to stand in line.
