Berardi/Foran/Karlen at The Sydney International Women's Jazz Festival, November 6

I'm very excited to launch the 'Hope in My Pocket' album with Kristin Berardi and Sean Foran at the Sydney International Women's Jazz Festival this weekend.
We had a great time performing in Victoria last weekend and are looking forward to playing at the Foundry in Sydney on Saturday night.

We hope to see you there.

"Hope in My Pocket", Sydney Premiere 
 
Reading through hundreds of letters and diaries this is an insight into the lives of people living with the reality of war. Inspired by the centenary of Anzac Day it celebrates love, human inspiration and most of all hope, all held within a pocket, close to the heart.
 
Commissioned to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the ANZAC Legacy, Berardi, Foran and Karlen explore this moving historical and personal content whereby we catch glimpses into the hearts and minds of fathers, mothers, wives, girlfriends, sons and friends.
Vocalist Kristin Berardi is one of Australia’s first calls when it comes to jazz. Having won a swag of awards both here and abroad including the Montrauex Jazz Festival’s International Vocal Competition (2006); Freedman Jazz Fellowship (2007); National Jazz Award (2012) and Bell Awards (2012, 2010), Berardi delights audiences with her “warm beautiful tone, extensive jazz vocabulary, pop appeal and magical stage presence.” (Chris Walker, USA).
