Sydney Fringe Festival 2016: Jen de Ness Trio in “See things like You”

 “See Things like you is TOP QUALITY CABARET” Broadway World Review, 2016

 “Sultry, Scintillating and totally mesmerising.”  Pheasantry Club LONDON, 2014

  “If you like Jazz, Easy Listening, Bossa nova and Blues you'll love Jen de Ness. Her version of "Cry Me a River" is my new favourite. Take a listen.” Best of Summer Listening 2016 (US)

 Perth based Singer/Songwriter/Cabaret performer, Jen de Ness brings her trio to The Newsagency to present two soulfully entertaining shows in celebration of the release her new album, “See things like you”.

The album is currently featured on the US based “Best of Summer listening 2016” and receiving Australian airplay.  The show includes songs from the Album featuring the smooth, sultry and entertaining vocals of Jen alongside her ability to entertain, tell some good tales and connect with her audience.  Jen is supported by slick guitar playing and backing vocals from fellow composer, Bill Atkinson and long-term percussionist Satish Krishnan with cool rhythm and grooves.

See things like you is “a cleverly devised cabaret piece about the quirky people who regularly attend an imaginary venue, The Green Tile Tango Club.”

Cool swing tunes, beautiful blues, smooth bossa, zesty tango, Kerouac Beat poetry and a French dancing tune (which you won’t findonthe CD!) are all played with much fun and passion. The title track to the show, a cool swing tune called “See things like you”, is sung by Jen’s Kerouac inspired character, Sam who comes to the  club to revive his ailing writing career. Jacquie, a hilariously sultry combination of Piaf, Dietrich and Madeline Kahn, a woman who got on the plane, got dumped and lived to tell the tale!
