Australian RnB Soul artist, Prinnie Stevens, will wow Adelaide Fringe Festival audiences with the world premiere of ‘Lady Sings the Blues,’ a thoughtful cabaret telling a story of empowerment through the songs and journeys of women of colour, all of whom are long admired by the artist.
The Voice Australia alum co-wrote and produced the show, and its debut performance at Adelaide Fringe 2021 at the Queens theatre will last four nights.
“I can’t wait to hit the stage with my all-female band and share all my favourite music from the greats like Billie Holiday to modern-day queens such as Beyonce,” Stevens says.
The artist’s work was inspired by a variety of musicians from the past and present.
“I have created a vintage feel with a modern twist; Think Great Gatsby meets Michael Jackson vibes with the essence of Etta James blues and Beyonce’s Soul Pop,” she says.
“I was not only inspired musically but also through fashion, the elegant use of gowns and even the significance of the gardenias use in Billie’s Holidays story play a significant role throughout.”
Stevens, who has worked with Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and several musicals in the city, such as “THRILLER” Live, is excited to bring her show to Adelaide.
“I have a special connection with Adelaide,” she says. “This will be my very first Adelaide Fringe Festival, and I’m so excited about premiering this show for Adelaide.”
Lady Sings the Blues has four shows from March 4th through 7th at new Adelaide Fringe Festival venue, The Queens, which is Australia’s oldest standing theatre.
