Does Australia have Soul?

A few years ago I asked the question ‘How Slow Can Perth Go’. At the time I was wrestling with the disappointment of a lack of ‘slow jams’ in the Perth scene – a problem that remains unresolved.

Price, 57, has played music nearly her whole life, starting with piano when she was five years old. But in the fall of 2009, the guitar was still something of mystery to her. She had been playing for only a couple of months and was struggling a bit with the new challenges. Yet, instead of holing up in her living room to practice until she felt more confident, she did […]
