ISLA KA is Tasmanian musician Frankie Andrew, who performed for a number of years in Tas and Melbourne under that name. Accompanied by Dave Edwards on double bass for Melbourne gigs, ISLA KA is soon to be a Tas-based collaboration performing as a full band.
Since making the change to ISLA KA in 2014 with her third release, a digital 3-track recorded at home in Melbourne (the previous two were released in 2010 & 2012 under Frankie Andrew), she's been experimenting with nylon, electrics and new collaborations for an upcoming release and future performances.
Praised for her lyrical and vocal finesse, a set from ISLA KA is a collection of stories and guitar-woven melodies inspired by island imagery, connections with people and places, internal struggles and social injustices.
Since moving back to Tas in 2015, ISLA KA has playing a number of festivals including Junction Arts Festival, Festival of Voices, Til the Wheels Fall Off, Marion Bay Falls Festival, Royal Eve and Party in the Paddock.
