Ben Lee, Clare Bowditch & The Exchange to Headline 2014 FESTIVAL OF VOICES, July 4-13
Australia's premier celebration of the human voice, The Festival of Voices, is delighted to announce its exciting headline artists for 2014. Two of Australia's finest singer/songwriters, BEN LEE and CLARE BOWDITCH, join US contemporary a cappella champions THE EXCHANGE to thrill Hobart in July.
Headlining a glorious ten-day program of performances from national and international artists, these three artists will also participate in the festival's inspiring series of major workshops, which are run by the artists and suitable for singers of all ages and experience.
Forming his first band at 13, BEN LEE has nurtured a life-long obsession with music which has seen him become an ARIA Award-winner and Top 10 artist in Australia and overseas. Lee's quirky, spiritual pop and deep connection with audiences has won him fans worldwide. In addition to his exclusive Festival performance, Lee will run an intimate, 90-minute vocal workshop on July 5, which he is looking forward to.
"While I'm not a technical singer by any means, I've always believed that a unique voice is all about the authenticity and communication of intention. I am looking forward to getting to know the singers, their voices, and what they each have in their hearts to share," said Lee.
Fellow ARIA Award-winner, beloved pop singer/songwriter, Offspring star and creative-business mentor CLARE BOWDITCH will charm Hobart with her beguiling brand of folk pop. Festivalgoers keen to learn something from Bowditch, who was recently invited to tour with Leonard Cohen, can also take part in her unmissable three-hour performance workshop on July 11.
