Bio

With her infectious new single Boat getting airplay in Sydney and Melbourne – which ascended to #1 on Triple J’s Unearthed pop chart – and a five-song EP just launched, nice things are happening for Sydney singer/songwriter Larissa McKay. Boat is a bouncy, cheerful tune written about a summer romance whilst sailing the Mediterranean. Not nearly as soulful as her usual fare, Boat is guaranteed to bring a little sparkle to an Aussie Summer. Now comfortably embedded back in the Sydney music scene, Larissa is enjoying the sand between her toes after three years spent performing and recording in London. Described as "the hardest working unsigned artist in London" Larissa played many prominent London clubs including Ronnie Scott’s and shared the bill with fellow Aussies Sarah Blasko, Eskimo Joe, Hungry Kids of Hungary, Ellie Goulding and one memorable night jammed with INXS. Festival appearances included The Great Escape UK, Festival Of The Sun, and The Aussie BBQ. Briefly slipping across the Atlantic, she played in New York (at the legendary Bitter End, and the Living Room among other venues) and Hollywood (Viper Room). Along the way, her song Ricocheted (a previous #1 on JJJ’s Unearthed pop chart) won her a Billboard Songwriting Award, and her UK-made music videos were shown on the ABC’s Rage. In the Clouds, the second single, is set for release in 2014 in conjunction with a music video filmed in an underground bunker.
