SAMA (South African Music Awards) nominated artist Laurie Levine is best known for her fresh blend of Americana and folk music. The release of her new solo record, Canyons, brings with it a whole new sound and outlook.

Levine will perform at Aintree in Pietermartizburg (31 Alice Grange Road) on Friday, February 23, at 7 pm. Tickets cost R100 and can be booked by phoning 033 386 7956 or 076 158 9881.

She has moved away from the acoustic terrain of country and folk into a lush world of electric guitars, beats, synths and spacious reverbs. Canyons delves deep into the recesses of longing and nostalgia, with a burning hope as the undercurrent that gently washes through the record.

Dark at times, introspective and pierced with a sublime beauty, the songs reverberate and shimmer with otherworldly elegance and intelligence.

Over seven records and countless live performances, the singer and songwriter has taken her original material to a growing fan base, earning multiple accolades along the way. Among these were four nominations at the annual Samas, the most recent being for Tigerlily, her project with singer and songwriter Josie Field.

Over the past few years, her performances at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival have led to two Standard Bank Ovation Awards. Her music has also received some recognition abroad.

The UK release of Six Winters led to two successful UK tours in 2012 and 2014, and rave reviews internationally (No Depression gave it 10/10 and Uncut gave it 8/10).

Levine will be bringing her new sound and album to KZN in February, delivering the songs in a stripped-down duo format.

She will also be performing a selection of older songs from her previous albums. She will be performing with guitarist Zam Boney.
