Genevieve Chadwick

"She looks like an angel...roars like a lion… and plays guitar like a deamon!”

Imagine if Janis Joplin and John Lee Hooker had a baby together; musically, this girl would be the offspring of that union.

She looks like an angel… roars like a lion… and plays guitar like a demon! She’s been likened to the great Janis Joplin… ‘a female John Butler’. In his article at, reviewer Lloyd Bradford Syke called her “Australia’s answer to Melissa Etheridge”.

Every once in a while an artist emerges who touches the very soul of an audience. Genevieve Chadwick is such an artist. Without doubt, Genevieve is an extraordinary performer who exudes raw energy by the bucket load. She has the power to bring an entire venue to a complete standstill. Her own original brand of Blues and Roots – poignant songs full of rich melodies, sung with a voice that’s confoundingly gravel-like and smooth all at once – has given this singer/songwriter from the NSW South Coast a loyal and ever-growing army of followers.

We are super excited Genevieve can come and play for us. She’s a small town girl and her home town is even smaller than Perenjori! We know she will feel right at home here in the bush.

“Raw energy in bucket loads, fuelled by the passion for the music.”Lottie Norman, Channel V Reviewer

“With her rich melodies, gravelly voice and poignant songs of love, loss and freedom, this talented singer and guitarist from the south coast of NSW is starting to catch people’s attention, even being likened to icons like Janis Joplin and Tracy Chapman.” - Rebecca Howden, Lip Magazine
