Nai Palm Announces Special One Off Melbourne Performance

Taking place at The Evelyn Hotel, Melbourne Saturday 18th August.

She is a composer, instrumentalist, producer, vocalist and poet who approaches all of these self-taught disciplines with an intuitive, infectious grace which sent her on a journey to sculpt songs that have been received and treasured across the world. It is a world she has travelled many times over with her live band project Hiatus Kaiyote, who along with Nai Palm have become household names since they first began playing together in Melbourne in 2011.

This success has set the stage for Nai Palm’s first solo release Needle Paw.

“This record is a very personal leap into the deep end.  I wanted to make something with no landmarks to hide behind and no team to fall back on.” -Nai Palm

Compromised almost entirely of her guitar playing and vocal arrangements Needle Paw is Nai Palm’s self-imposed challenge to explore the potential for immortality and timelessness within her music by stripping away the produced layers to focus on the element that is closest to the source of the human soul, the voice.
Nai Palm’s approach to vocal arrangements is orchestral. At any moment the instruments she hears in her mind are presented in an organic blossoming of sound. A voice can be presented as a horn or strings or a choir of wild dingos. Her sonic environments celebrate the synthesis of sound and the points of contact that gather us together within it, steadily moving away from the artist as ego and fitting each heartfelt offering into the ecosystem of the entire arrangement.

At this point in her journey she has nothing to prove to anyone,
just something that provides for everyone.
