Australian-born and Northern Rivers based indie artist, Ladi Abundance draws on diverse influences from jazz, electro-pop, R&B and soul.
A vocalist, pianist and producer, Ladi Abundance weaves live looping and vocal harmonies with self-produced electronic beats and live instrumental pieces to create melodic, harmony rich and dramatic downtempo urban grooves.
Celebrated as a constantly evolving and dynamic artist, Ladi moved from leading her 9 piece Brisbane based band, Ladi Abundance Project towards her solo career in 2016, which marked a new beginning and work on her first wholly self-produced electronic album - to be released later this year.
In 2018 Ladi Abundance released her single, "I can't get in," coupled with music video created by BLAC Media Productions, showcasing her enduring shift into ambient electronica while speaking to mental health issues born of the cultural inclination to shut down and shut others out when in pain.
Released off the back of her India tour, and two other electronic singles, which were released in 2017, "When did we become Native" and "Out The Door," audiences are being given a taste of Ladi's album to come and her evolution into the electronic music scene, hearing hints of influences FKA Twiggs and Bonobo.
Ladi's live shows can range from laid back soulful pop and R&B melodies to passionate groove and harmony driven electronic loops that can stir the spirit and inspire movement. Intricate and sometimes spontaneous, Ladi Abundance's performances will always feature her signature vocal layers, and cover themes that span a spectrum of fragility and empowerment, social critique, loss, love and lust, inviting an openness in audiences by allowing them to share in stories of the heart and spectate in an on-going journey of personal growth and transformation.
Ladi has regularly played the Australian East Coast festival circuit since her debut in 2011, including: Woodford Folk Festival, Earth Frequency Festival, Island Vibe (Stradbroke Island), Byron Spirit Festival, and Wallaby Creek (FNQLD), as well as Melbourne's Sisters for Sisters and Seven Sisters Festivals.
After the successful release of her debut EP, "Slice You Up" in 2013, Ladi Abundance found a second home in Bali, gaining a fresh perspective and muse in the land and culture, which inspired her first official music video and single, "More Time With My Soul," from her 2015 LP, "Softening to Saturn". She has since found inspiration in India, performing in Goa, as well as from supporting touring artists at home, such as Ngaiire and Deya Dova.
Moving crowds from Asia to Melbourne with honest and heart-felt performances, Ladi Abundance is now planning a Europe tour to complement her 2019 album launch, focusing on finding a base in Berlin after touring Australia later in the year.
