Bluesfest Touring presents
At just 14 years old, Sydney born bassist turned singer-songwriter Tal Wilkenfeld began playing guitar. It wasn’t long before she dropped out of school and emigrated to the States to study electric guitar where she then began making a name for herself in New York’s jazz clubs, working with some of the industry greats.
Having spent the bulk of her career playing with veteran rock musicians like Jeff Beck, Prince, Herbie Hancock and Eric Clapton, Tal Wilkenfeld, a bass virtuoso, is no stranger to the limelight. The 10-song collection displays the Australian born, LA based musician as a talented vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer.
With highly praised reviews from Rolling Stone, Billboard and Forbes, don’t miss out on your chance to hear these dense, riff-heavy tracks with introspective lyrics proving her incredible songwriting abilities.
“There are instrumentalists who are great writers, but I can’t think of another instrumentalist that has ventured into the area that Tal has ventured into…” – Jackson Browne
“She's a genius. She will pick up mistakes that even Vinnie Colaiuta and I miss.” - Jeff Beck
