It’s been 30 years since ARIA recipient Gyan sang her hit Wait from the cliffs of Kiama on Countdown. Since then her career has followed an international trajectory working with the likes of Bon Jovi, Ricky Martin and LeAnn Rimes before returning to Byron as part of The Museagency, scooping a Sydney Theatre Award for her collaboration with Leunig at Sydney Opera House, with runner-up/shortlist awards for her album, Superfragilistically (SMH), and children’s book, How Weird Is That (CBCA).
Her anniversary retrospective tour was delayed by COVID but the interruption has afforded time to workshop the stories and re-imaginings of her early work in a casual and intimate way. She has invited masterful violinist Veronique Serret to join her multi-instrumentalist partner Si Greaves in a COVID aware celebration of heady days at the famed Prince of Wales Opera House in Gulgong.
‘Is it really possible to be totally original? Certainly Gyan seems to elude easy categorisation in her determination to find sounds, silences and lyrics that are unpredictable, never clichéd. … intensely beautiful, emotionally honest, sensitive and seductive… The more you listen, the more you will fall in love with Gyan’s unique talent.’ Bruce Elder – The AGE
