Helen Townsend is a songwriter who tells stories as big, open and enduring as the ancient land of Australia that is her home. She will break your heart and save your soul all in the same night.
A performer who draws her audience close, Helen's brand of Americana has already attracted attention nationwide. With her first EP, 'Wayward Heart', nominated for a slew of WAM Awards and a set of new songs that sees her climbing even greater heights.
Helen is an artist at the peak of her powers. Her voice is a unique blend of honey tinged with the warmth of a pure single malt. Drawing on film, literature and her life experiences as inspiration for her songs, Helen threads narratives through her music that are poignant, acutely observed and heartfelt.
Every performance is an observance of the rituals of life, love, loss and strength - the strength that brought a girl from Sydney's east via the heart of Africa and the streets of London to the creative hub of Fremantle, Western Australia, where she is now a leading musician in a vibrant and diverse scene.
