28 years ago, in a two-bit, flea bit, roadside bed-sit, under a blue moon, MOJO JUJU came into this world, howlin and hollerin, baring the mark of a born blues singer.
Today, still howling & hollerin, she is a formidable force onstage, charismatic and charming.
Outrageous as it sounds, it is no stretch at all to say that Mojo Juju would sit comfortably in the company of vocalists as epic as Billie Holiday, Nina Simone & Bessie Smith.
She could hold her own amongst entertainers eccentric as Cab Calloway and Screamin Jay Hawkins. And her songs could easily belong between the covers of a Raymond Chandler novel, or on the B-side of a Tom Waits record.
Over the last five years her reputation has grown rapid and wild as founding member, songwriter and vocalist for notorious, seven piece noir punk/garage swing band The Snake Oil Merchants, who have been a favourite on the Australian festival circuit, including both Woodford and Bluesfest for the last two years running.
Mojo Juju is now set to embark on new musical projects as a solo entity.
Drawing inspiration from film noir and hard-boiled fiction, the Jazz age, Latin American Pachuco culture of the 1930s & 40s and early blues music, this is the first opportunity to see her at her most frighteningly raw and heartbreakingly honest.
