Gliding through earthy rhythmic tones, hypnotising melody and a voice from the golden realm, Abbey Howlett has created a significant buzz amongst the Australian music landscape. After recently walking away from the South Australian Music Awards winning BEST ELECTRONIC ARTIST, Abbey has been top-shelfed for an exciting 2018.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Abbey has progressively mastered the fine art of looping, introducing eclectic rhythms and beats to her ever-expanding wilderness, creating melodies atop melodies and patterns within rhyme. Her style has morphed from acoustic vibrations to colourful percussive vocal loops, blending hip-hop and neo-soul in a uniquely creative way. Drawing influence from all over the world, Abbey Howlett provokes memories of greats such as Bjork, Erykah Badu and Portishead.
Through Abbey’s travels she has become a draw card on boutique festival stages around SA including Blenheim Fest, Adelaide Fringe, Porch Sessions, Telltale & Vine, Root Down Festival playing alongside Sampa The Great and Godriguez and has recently been added to the 2018 WOMAdelaide line-up. She has blended her vocal techniques with a range of different bands and hip-hop artists. Recent times, have seen Abbey collaborate live with Adam Page and Oisima at the South Australian Music Awards, release and tour new single 'The Mother' and play to a sold out Northcote Social Club with mentor Mojo Juju.
