Missed out on tickets to SITG? Or just can’t be bothered to battle the 18 hour drive up to Byron Bay? What ever your reason may be for missing the festival, you can still get a slice of the SITG action sans tent pegs, gumboots and over-priced beer.
Combining layers of cello by making live laptop loops, Canadian-born artist Zoe Keating is a different kind of musician. Hitting the top 10 of the classical and electronic charts in the US, and using her training in both music and engineering, Keating transcends genres and injects deep meaning into her pieces. Not only has she shunned conventional promotional methods and self-releasd her albums (that have sold over 45,000 copies), but she's an entrepreneur and pioneer for sustainable and economically-minded artists.
