This will be the first time the singer has visited Gladstone, and she is really excited to explore our town! Dami said she was looking forward to bringing her live performance to the region.
Audiences will hear songs from Dami’s current studio album ‘I Hear A Song’ which was recorded in Nashville, TN. “Tunes by Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Norah Jones and Beyonce, songs that I grew up listening to,” Dami explained. “I recorded them at my piano and I am really looking forward to playing them again live,’” she added. “I recorded this album with the live performances in mind.”
Dami said she has always been strongly influenced by strong female vocalists. “I always looked up to women who sang, who could speak their minds through their music, and that is who I wanted to be,” she said. Dami explained she was really looking forward to performing in Gladstone because of its intimate setting,

In between touring and recording Dami has been working really hard every day writing new songs for her next release, and she is hoping to give the Gladstone audience a taste of her new music while she is here. “When I come to Gladstone, I will be able to share some of the new songs I have been working on as well,” she said.
