Four years after Cascadia (Futuresequence and 1631 Recordings), Australian Brisbane based composer and musician release a new album. Ithaca is out now via ROOM40 Imprint’ Someone Good. It was mastered by Lawrence English. She explains: “I wrote “Ithaca” after returning to live in my home town of Brisbane, Australia after many years away living in Melbourne, Seattle and New York. Writing “Ithaca” was a raw, personal and cathartic experience for me and explores the complex and varied emotions I have felt since returning home. It canvasses feelings of optimism, frustration, heartbreak, melancholy and ultimately hope.
Whilst the title “Ithaca” is derived from a previous name for the neighbourhood I currently live in, I acknowledge the Jagera and Turrbal people as the first inhabitants and the traditional custodians of the lands where I live.”
