If you’re a loyal Scoop subscriber or even just the occasional online visitor, you’ll know we love the WA arts community. Galleries, museums, theatre- but this week we drew our attention towards music, and the lovely Perth icon Natasha Pinto.

Florence and the Machine, Brandy, Boyz II Men- They’ve all got one thing in common, and that’s working with Natasha. The Perth born R&B singer/songwriter has certainly had a huge career so far.

Her new single, ‘Beyond All Else’, is the pinnacle of all she’s worked on to date- and we had the chance to ask her about it.

“It’s definitely taking off quicker than I thought! I didn’t expect it… its reaching the UK” Natasha told us.

“Kyle and Jackie O are playing it next week! It’s really cool; people are more accepting of a sound that’s not seen as commercial. It’s a great time for music”.

What sets her apart, though, is the refreshing concept her music is based upon- and it’s not exactly what you’d expect.

“I studied fine arts at uni, and I’ve always just been in love with the Renaissance Movement. I wanted to bring that concept (it means rebirth) and the way we live to my music”.

Natasha says there’s not enough music that speaks to inspire and give a sense of hope- and that’s exactly what she plans to do.

It’s clear growing up in Perth influenced her road to success (proud moment). She told us having a quiet, remote place to call home fed her creativity, and motivated her to build her career- most isolated city in the world? Challenge accepted!

Like many creative people, Natasha is also involved in other areas of the Arts, including fashion. Previously a blogger for New York Fashion Week, Natasha is now working with Australian Fashion Week (much better- we like to keep our homegrown talent close!)

Natasha is in Perth at the moment, and unfortunately no official shows are confirmed. But you can’t keep a good girl down- “if I pop down to a gig, I’ll probably sing!”

Piano Battle is heading to Perth Concert Hall

Piano Battle started more or less by accident – with only one concert slot left at the Hong Kong City Festival, the organisers suggested the pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis share the stage. What emerged from their festival scrambling was a performance battle, and one that would go beyond a single night and expand to a global tour with a rapturous following. Since then the duo has played to sold-out audiences in Asia, Europe and the USA, and this Sunday, the contest lands at Perth Concert Hall.
