Helen Townsend is one of those artists who genuinely lives music, understands it’s power and knows how to harness it to tell a story which gathers you up and sweeps you along.
While the Perth-based singer, songwriter and guitarist’s style lives broadly in the world of country, her music runs the gamut from Folk through Americana, Bluegrass and Alt-Country. But what rings through all of her songs is a sweet, sincere voice which simply glories in the telling of a story and injects just the right emotion into the words. There’s also an intimacy in her music which gently invites you in to share slices and snippets of life’s journeys.
Whilst her debut CD, Wayward Heart has resulted in multiple nominations including a WAM Song of the Year for Streets of Glory 2016, Boyup Brook Country Music Awards Single of the Year for Red Light 2016 and currently nominated for Independent EP Of the Year to be announced in February 2017. Helen is currently recording her latest album
to be released mid 2017
