Finnish singer-songwriter and Subpop recording artist Mirel Wagner makes her Australian debut this January appearing at Sydney Festival, Hobart's MOFO Festival and for a headline slot at Melbourne's Toff In Town.
Drawing on the Appalachian murder ballad tradition and haunting early Delta blues, Wagner is a storyteller like no other, accompanying her rich, velvet voice with a delicate acoustic fingerpicking. Its little wonder she topped the Finnish national album charts for her 2014 release When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day, an album that also won her the coveted 2014 Nordic Music Prize.
"The likes of Mark Lanegan and Nick Cave have a new rival in the practising of dark musical arts." - Record Collector
"Simply put, When The Cellar Children See The Light Of Day is one of the best albums of the year" - musicOMH.com
"Mirel is a wonderful story-teller while stories themselves are terrifying." - Lodz
"Ghostly and erotic Delta blues" - MOJO.
