Genevieve Chadwick is a 32-year-old singer and songwriter from the NSW South Coast.
Her destiny as a musician was known from a young age when her mother went to a Dire Straits concert whilst pregnant with her and she rolled and kicked in the womb the whole time!
From then on, Genevieve’s mother knew music was going to play a huge role in her daughter’s life.
Her music has been described as the ‘female version of John Butler’ and has grown to create her own style of Blues and Roots music.
Genevieve is recognised for her energy and ‘gravelly’ voice and is often referred to as ‘Australia’s answer to Melissa Etheridge’.
She plays electric and acoustic guitar, but wins the audience with her husky vocals.
She released her popular debut album ‘Riding the Wind, Forgetting Time’ in 2011.
In 2013, she was awarded the People’s Choice Award at the Telstra Road to Discovery Finals in Tamworth.
In 2014, Genevieve was chosen as one of three Australian artists to be part of the global ‘Playing for Change’ music project.
She has recently signed a new record deal and her much-awaited second studio album will be released soon.
She has scored various spots in major music festivals around Australia as well as getting the chance to open for renowned artists such as Joan Armatrading and Ben Caplan.
Some of the key music festivals she has performed at include Bluesfest Byron Bay, Woodford Folk Festival and Sydney Blues and Roots festival.
