Bertie Blackman delivers pop music with depth. Her voice is seductive, her lyrics are inventively honest and she mesmerizes as a live performer. "When I’m playing music, I just disappear into what's going on," she says, "it all just sort of channels through."
Constantly evolving as an artist, Bertie continues to develop her sound on her upcoming album, Secrets and Lies, by blending electronic influences with her signature vocal style. "I wanted to do something more electronic and less band-oriented" says Blackman, "It's dark, but it's also a pop record".
The album is a meeting of great minds including Sydney based UK producer Lee Groves (Goldfrapp, Gwen Stefani) and Francois Tetaz (Gotye, Architecture in Helsinki). The single, Thump, was mixed by Dave Bascombe (Tears For Fears / Royksopp)
