Acclaimed singer-songwriter Bloom comes to the Koala Tavern, Capalaba at 7.30pm on June 10 to perform her Stevie Nicks, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt songbook.
The show is part of a tour which runs until October 7. It is also her first performance in the Redlands.
“Regional audiences are my favourite because they are very warm,” she said.
“They are always so appreciative of live music and I find them to be very down to earth – my kind of people.”
Bloom said her show was not a tribute show, rather a show that was true to the style and nuances of the music.
“The music of these artists is cross generational. It’s timeless. And the artists each communicate differently,” she said.
“Carole King is chatty and conversational in her music. I love this connection. Her songs offer authenticity.
“And then there is Stevie Nicks. There is a magic about her, about the way she moves. She gives me freedom to explore,” she said.
Bloom said she had also been told she looks and sounds like Linda Ronstadt.
“It’s true. She could pass as my aunty,” she said.
“I love the fact that she sang a lot of genres and didn’t box herself into a certain style.”
In honour of Linda Ronstadt, Bloom said money from the shows supported Shake Up Australia, a charity supporting Parkinsons research. To date, the concerts have raised $30,000.
“Together, the music makes for a fun show and its music, all the hits, that you don’t hear so much.
“They all have their own artistry. The audience often tell me that they forget they know the songs but the words just come out of their mouths.”
The shows also coincided with Bloom’s new album Elevate, which has had more than 200,000 streams and is featured on BBC Radio 1 UK and Capital FM UK’s Spotify playlists.
Tickets are $39.90 and can be booked on oztix.com.au.
