NYC based Australians Karen Jacobsen, MiG Ayesa and Tracey Yarad collaborate to bring you AussieMusicFestivalNYC, a regular showcase of Down Under songwriters living in and visiting the Big Apple.
Our first showcase at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3 features Nadia Ackerman of Natchie alongside the founders. Join us for original songs and the occasional classic Aussie hit, March 22nd at 8:30 PM at one of the best indie singer/songwriter/jazz/rock rooms in Manhattan; Rockwood Music Hall, 185 Orchard St on the LES.
Tracey Yarad’s musical journey has seen her perform regularly on live television, with the who’s who of Australian music and releasing seven albums. She has lived and toured extensively in Japan, Europe and her native Australia and has a love for music education that was expressed in the music academy she founded in 2004 in the Blue Mountains.
MiG Ayesa has had an extraordinary career, performing on Broadway (Rock of Ages, Burn the Floor), the West End (Rent, We Will Rock You), on television, film and releasing his songs internationally. Calling NYC home since 2007, MiG became known to US television audiences as a finalist in the ROCKSTAR:INXS reality television show.
Karen Jacobsen moved to NYC in 2000 realizing her childhood dream. Her speaking voice unexpectedly ended up in over a billion GPS/smartphones and as the original Aussie Siri. She has been a clue in The New York Times crossword puzzle, called hypnotic by Harry Connick Jr on his talk show, and is currently recording her 10th album.
Singer, Songwriter and Illustrator Nadia Ackerman arrived for good in 1998 and released her sixth album The Well in 2019. Uniquely, she draws and writes each song, which led to her brand and store Natchie at Blackbarn in Chelsea. Nadia’s designs are available as prints, homewares and gifts. She has an international following for both her art and her music.
