While in Byron Bay for Bluesfest, Larry Heath caught up with French musician Yann Tiersen after his first performance.
The show I got to see of you was incredible. It sounded great. How do you feel about the show?
Really good. It’s kind of growing so it’s a good feeling. It’s the first big festival so you’re always afraid of stage sound and everything so... it was really good, I enjoyed it.
Are you doing another set before you leave?
Our Day 4 began with Mama Kin, whose set mixed sassy keyboard progressions with big soul vocals and the odd ballad thrown in. Her inter-song stand-up routine engaged her very relaxed audience, as did an awkward-looking but gutsy-sounding drum solo.
Welcome back for another week. As we get slightly further into 2012, the album releases from week to week just keep growing and this week’s edition is the biggest yet!
