It’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that that makes the sounds of Larissa Tandy so good. Southern rock, ’90s alternative, vintage gospel and country soul is all there. She’s been doing her thing since the late ’90s, playing in a number of Melbourne bands while also writing music for film and television. After dividing her time between Canada and Australia for a few years, Larissa was granted permanent residence by the Canadian Government. While it’s never easy to say goodbye to friends and family, the strength of the Canadian music scene proved too strong. However, along with her band the Strine Singers, Larissa is set to pay a visit to old friends. The Bridge, Castlemaine – April 4.
