Australian singer-songwriter Odette ends the year with the announcement of UK and European 2019 tour dates including a headline show at The Grand Social Dublin on Wednesday 13th February 2019.
Odette also announces spellbinding new single ‘A Place That I Don’t Know’ featuring fellow Aussie songstress, Gretta Ray - out 30th November 2018 via EMI Music Australia / Caroline International. Odette also announces the release of her highly anticipated debut album ‘To A Stranger’ on 8th February 2019.
Odette covers Gang Of Youths 'Magnolia' for Like A Version.
‘A Place That I Don’t Know’ is the latest instalment from the gifted young artist, following on from this year’s previous critically acclaimed releases ‘Take It To The Heart’ and ‘Lotus Eaters,’ and features Gretta Ray. The single is a further display of Odette’s syncopated, soulful delivery that is harmonised beautifully by Gretta’s dulcet vocal - a well-crafted, standout track that sets the tone for her debut album.
2018 has been an exciting year for Sydney based Odette, having sold out her first ever headline tour of Australia, received two ARIA Award nominations including ‘Breakthrough Artist’ and secured an ‘Album of the Week’ nod from the influential taste maker Triple J. Earlier in the year she visited the UK, to give stunning performances at The Great Escape and at her headline show in London at The Slaughtered Lamb. ‘Take It To The Heart’ video premiered with CLASH and has received support from the likes of Idolator, Red Bull UK, 1883 Magazine and Baeble Music.
‘To A Stranger’ – produced by Damian Taylor, whose previous accolade of work includes Björk, Arcade Fire, The Killers and The Temper Trap - is an inherently personal record; it’s Odette’s study of herself, capturing every fear and hope she had in her final teenage years before adulthood took hold. Its songs map every scar and heartbreak enacted during what she describes as “the hardest years of my life so far”, and she’s immensely proud of being able to use music to write her way out of that time.
"Odette is another newcomer worthy of your immediate attention." – IDOLATOR
"Enduring hardship and deciding to persevere, she turned these experiences into her finest material to date, soaring moments of soulful pop that bewitch at every turn."-CLASH
"Odette is a sweet, smart and bad ass woman to look out for. The singer-songwriter’s music is an intoxicating blend of soul, jazz, pop and spoken word." – 1883 MAGAZINE
