Parvyn is a Punjabi-Australian singer best known for her work in cult psychedelic band The Bombay Royale, and performing globally since childhood with her father Dya Singh. Parvyn’s current solo project represents a new step in her career and is informed by pop, electronica and jazz, her background in Sikh devotional music and her training in classical Indian music and dance.
Her debut solo record ‘Sa’, released Sep 2021, heralded as an ‘multigenre, multicultural, masterpiece’ – The Australian, was nominated for the prestigious Australian Music Prize and has collaborations with producers Joelistics, Yelderbert and Bob Knob (HopeStreet Recordings). With influences from Bjork to Anoushka Shankar, it is immersed in a reflective world of different cultures and perspectives.
EMILY-ROSE AND THE WILD THINGS
In a world which dances between jazz, folk, songwriter and experimental, one finds lyrics of weight and beauty, underpinned by profound but constantly fresh acoustic and electric worlds. Headed by Songstress and keys player Emily-Rose Sarkova, her full band will be presenting songs from their debut album ‘Upon These Open Skins’, which has been compared to sounds as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Hiatus Kaiyote, Sam Amidon and Dirty Projectors.
From performing classical piano in French cathedrals, klezmer accordion across Poland, tango in Buenos Aires and funk keyboards and synths at the infamous Pineapple Lounge, Woodfordia, there isn’t much music Emily-Rose hasn’t explored. You may know her from ARIA nominated group Chaika, soft songwriting duo Little Clouds or improvising solo piano as ‘Slow Streams’.
