Melbourne songwriter Little Wise, AKA Sophie Klein, is thrilled to announce her second Western Australian tour. The tour follows her memorable first journey out West in June 2018, where she won over new fans across Perth, Margaret River, Bunbury and Bridgetown. Little Wise will be bringing her band this time, featuring Rosie Burgess on bass guitar and guest drummer for the tour Cat Leahy of This Way North fame. With the force of her rhythm section behind her, Little Wise will showcase her louder, more raucous side with driving guitars and her signature vocals as the centrepiece. The trio will appear at Nannup Music Festival and Settlers Tavern, Margaret River. Plus, a secret Perth show to be revealed one week out via social media.
The band are still revelling in the recent release of ‘Want it All’, the first single off the upcoming sophomore record. The track drew praise from broadcasters, critics and fans alike:
“Somewhere between the growl of PJ Harvey and simmering tension of The Velvet Underground sits
Melbourne songwriter Little Wise with her return single.” – Scenestr.
“I love the instrumental outtake. So cool and so dreamy” – Nkechi Anele, triple j.
“She calls herself Little Wise, but I think she’s a lot wise!” – Henry Wagons, Double J.
2018 was a stellar year for Klein and Little Wise. Her recording project was awarded funding from Creative Victoria, supplemented by a highly successful Pozible campaign raising over 10K in presales for the album. She recorded the album at The Aviary Studios in Melbourne. Little Wise showcased at Mondo NYC in New York City and played a sold-out farewell show at Melbourne’s Caravan Club Winnebago Lounge at the end of the year, before going on a short hiatus to welcome her new baby.
The WA tour hails the return of Little Wise to live performing. She is back and eager to preview material off the new album with Western Australian audiences. Don’t miss Little Wise this February and March: “a little wiser, stronger and grittier!” (Nkechi Anele, triple j).
