With a love of songs with a story to tell and that rare ability to transform a lyric to make it her very own, Helen is looking forward to returning to The Drunken Poet to perform her album Someday Love - eleven tracks of atmospheric country soul pop. The album features a duet with Spencer P Jones on the classic Lee Hazlewood tune Lady Bird. Since her last release Helen has been writing for her forthcoming second album and will perform a selection of new material along with an eclectic mix of her favourite songs. Joining Helen on stage will be Bruce Haymes (Archie Roach) on keyboards and Jeff Burstin (Vika and Linda) on guitar.
