This Saturday night Speakeasy HQ will present the launch of a new show that is set to blow away out audience of croon loving, tune loving, comedy adoring fans, as Swing Digity hits the stage of the stars!
Presenting a line up of four artists from vastly different backgrounds, all performing various musical and comedy numbers, Swing Digitywill turn the spotlight over to an incredible singer for part of the journey, as Lady Fox takes to the stage. Known and loved as the emblem of Australian soul and blues, Lady Fox’s modern interpretation of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday and Aretha Franklin have left her audiences stunned!
So, we took the stunning starlet aside as she prepares for this week’s show, to ask her a bunch of questions about what makes her tick!
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Lady Fox. I have a long history in performance. I’m a singer and also a burlesque artist. Sometimes I do both.
What was your first professional gig and how did it go?
I think it was with a band i joined last minute because their singer never showed up. We played a wedding. I’m pretty sure it went perfectly.
What’s your career highlight?
Singing in a smokey speakeasy? There are so many great things I’ve done. I’ve enjoyed them all. And every week, performing at different venues, bars and clubs around Melbourne, it feels like I’m adding a new highlight.
What’s your greatest dream for your career?
To sing in a massive sold out venue like the Sydney opera house with a full orchestra!!
How would you like to be remembered in 100 years time?
As a woman with a voice that healed the worlds pain.
What will you be performing at Speakeasy HQ this weekend?
A collection of songs that speak of my journey as a black woman in white Australia, who loves art. Summertime, all about that base, no diggity, what a difference a day makes. I might swap no diggity if I am confident with a new one.
