Kerrie Sweeney

Some great sounds from down under. Should I say some great blues sounds. If you’ve been here before you know I am very partial to female blues singers, and this young lady can surely sing the blues.

Kerrie Sweeney hails from Wollongong, a place that ranks second to my favorite Australian place-name, Wangaratta. They both roll of the tongue so beautifully.

Kerrie Sweeney has recently returned to the music scene after a long absence. Kerrie has won a swag of awards during her musical career as a blues and soul singer /songwriter /entertainer including her first award Best New Female Artist at the Australian Blues Music Awards in 1998.

Kerrie is currently working with members of the fabulous ‘FINN Band’ a well-respected group of musicians that have been working in and around Sydney for over 20 years. And is currently recording her next CD with the guys due for release in September 2017.

While we are waiting for that CD let’s take a stroll through her catalog of awesome live blues.

This is a hot of the presses video, just dropped on YouTube.
Here’s Kerrie in fine voice as part of the Women of Blues and Soul Showcase @ Corrimal RSL.
And boy does Kerrie have blues and soul sewed up.
