Ever wondered what a day in the life of an emerging solo artist is like? We followed Thandi Phoenix, one of Australia’s most promising gems in the resurgence of R’n’B, on a typical day in her world. From AM to PM, we joined the Aussie songbird from the moment the sun peeked through her curtains to when darkness fell.
Stamping her mark on the on the Sydney soul and electronic scene is Aussie R’n’B sensation, Thandi Phoenix. With a sound that is equal parts raw and emotive, Thandi kickstarted her career in 2015 by collaborating with Ta-ku, B-Wise and Coin Banks. This was followed by her single, ‘Come Around,’ which received fanfare from Triple J. Her first record in 2016, ‘Tell Me Where The Lovers Have Gone,’ attracted rave reviews, and she has been described as “one of Australia’s most promising female artists.”
