Gyan – ‘This Girl’s In Love’ Tour

Gyan hits the road after a hiatus from touring with her incandescently gorgeous album ‘This Girl’s In Love’. This perfectly crafted collection features classic and less-familiar love songs plucked from the songbooks of great composers from Burt Bacharach and Henry Mancini to John Lennon and Tom Waits. Focus tracks are Johnny Guitar by Peggy Lee/Victor Young, Tumbleweed by Neil Young and a pared-back version of her hit single from 1989, Wait, the only original song to appear.

It was a strange kind of education, singing someone else’s material, putting on their masterful jackets. But songs we remembered fondly turned out to be bombastic when we revisited them, so we’ve made the production of ‘This Girl’s In Love’ come from the place where we live now artistically. There’s a dream-like quality to our approach to going back in time.” – Gyan

Gyan ran a successful crowdfunder in 2014 to record ‘This Girl’s in Love’. She co-produced it with her partner, musician and arranger Simon Greaves, and they recorded and mixed it in their studio in Byron Bay. It features a stellar roll call of jazz and classical players, including a string ensemble (Veronique Serret, Cleis Pearce, Bridget Crouch and Tara-Lee Byrne), brass and woodwind (John Hoffman, Nicole Tait, Jeff Mead and Peter Kaldor), drums (Simon Barker), double bass (Thierry Fossemalle) and piano (Alan Park and Tim Sponder).

‘This Girl’s In Love’ is Gyan’s first release since Superfragilistically (2010), an album of original songs described by the Sydney Morning Herald as ‘intensely beautiful, emotionally honest, sensitive and seductive,’ and by the Courier Mail as a ‘staggeringly beautiful record.’

‘This Girl’s In Love’ is an artist’s odyssey into the musical minds of the singers and composers she has always admired. Between them, Gyan & Simon have conjured up a dreamy, haunting, captivating soundscape.
