Globally adored for her commanding voice, virtuosic guitar work and uncompromising bravery, English singer-songwriter Anna Calvi will be showcasing her latest masterpiece Hunter for Australian audiences this June as she pairs a performance at Tasmania’s beguiling Dark Mofo festival with intimate shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Exploring freedom, identity and gender with an approach that has become uniquely her own, Hunter arrived in mid-2018 to rapturous critical acclaim.

Pitchfork fawned over it’s “remarkable evolution” which “pushes her artistry to another level” while the Guardian could only sit back and pronounce it as “glorious and triumphant”.

Calvi’s signature vocals, so bold and striking, permeate the record as they dart and weave around her dazzling guitar playing and synchronize perfectly with world class accompaniment supplied by Portishead’s Adrian Utley (keys) and The Bad Seeds’ Martyn Casey (bass).
