Justin Whyte - 15th July

 

Justin Whyte returns to Laika after a couple of trips to Egypt, a long stint at Sotano, Hilton Southwarf, twelve months writing and producing in the Northern Rivers NSW and a new solo album due out at the end of the year.  This multi-instrumentalist musical chameleon is predictably unpredictable.  With the smokey velvet voice, mad piano skills and phrasing that is impossible to pin down, you may be locked into an intimate jazz ballad one minute and dancing the next depending on the night or the mood as he delves into a vast repertoire of styles and genres from his musical travels.  Drawing from his extensive experience in Jazz, Blues, Latin Jazz, Salsa, House, ambient and time honored classics, Justin very much enjoys getting lost in the music, transporting audiences with warmth and humor to other musical realms and places with his own very unique musical twist on things.  Don’t miss this amazing artist at Laika!
