“With her rich melodies, wonderfully gravelly voice and poignant songs of love, loss and freedom, this talented singer, songwriter and guitarist deserves comparisons with icons like Tracy Chapman.”
- Rebecca Howden, Lip Magazine, Australia Arts Council
“Genevieve Chadwick channels into her music a huge personality and exciting energy, which makes for unforgettable entertainment!”
- Faster Louder Magazine
“Australia’s answer to Melissa Etheridge”
- Lloyd Bradford Syke, Australian Stage
It’s been said that if Janis Joplin and John Lee Hooker had had a daughter together, musically, Genevieve Chadwick could be the offspring of that union.
Genevieve has scored opening slots for some of Australia’s top acts and is a winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Telstra Road to Discovery Finals in Tamworth. She has tirelessly toured her popular albums, captivating audiences all over Australia. In doing so, she’s earned appearances at many major music festivals including Bluesfest Byron Bay, Woodford Folk, Thredbo Blues Festival, Echuca Winter Blues, the Nannup Music Festival , Sydney Blues & Roots Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival , Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival and many more.
Genevieve was also selected as one of only three Australian artists to become part of the global Playing For Change music project, which in turn saw her support Joan Armatrading and Ben Caplin for their Australian sideshows. Her much-anticipated second album was produced by The Hit Factory’s Grammy award-winner Mark Johnson (Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal, Rickie Lee Jones, Keb’ Mo’, etc.).
From the moment she takes to the stage, she captivates the audience with her glowing smile and incredibly warm and humble personality. Then from the first chord struck, she instantly lives up to her reputation for giving her all as a performer. Her impassioned, husky vocals and raw stage energy give her the power to bring an entire venue to a complete standstill.
This time backed by The Stones Throw comprising EL favourites Dave Fester on drums and Mick Malouf on bass, Genevieve Chadwick is guaranteed to rock Eastern Lounge. Welcome back Gen!
