Aminah Hughes Single and Album Launch


Perth Happenings is so excited to be the first to premiere amazing Perth based artist, Aminah Hughes, new single and upcoming album - Blue Wooden Boat.

When I first heard the single, I had to listen more than once. There is a Sarah Blasko like quality to Aminah's voice and I was honestly drawn in.

Blue Wooden Boat has depth and emotion and I truly felt something magical.

Aminah Hughes brings her brand new album back to Perth, launching independent label, Blue Wolf Records.



Recorded in Ireland, USA, Australia & Germany, Blue Wooden Boat features special guests Tommy Emmanuel, Waterboys fiddler Steve Wickham and Nashville gospel singers, The McCrary Sisters. Launched by some of Perth's finest musicians at The Ellington Jazz Club on 14th November.
 
“Trying to pin down what this singer can do with her voice is hard because she can do some amazing things. She can belt out a roof-raising blues tune just as readily as she can deliver a folk tune sweet enough to make you cry.” - Nadia Mitsopoulos (ABC Radio Perth)

“An intelligent and vocal woman of extraordinary musical talent...a powerful musical force.” - Robert James (GANGgajang/Yothu Yindi)

“A sort of magic fell over the intimately gathered crowd. This lady can SING. But she also tells wonderfully vivid tales with every lyric, every word. I felt an
air of romance and possibility that hasn’t been awoken in me in a long time.” -
Kate Winter (Journalist and Reviewer, Ireland)

Hi I'm Pieta. I'm the boss lady here at Perth Happenings. I love getting grass roots with people - who, what, when, where, why and how. We have been growing Perth Happenings to support the small local businesses and events that perhaps can't afford large scale exposure and this is my passion.

We work with only locally based businesses so we can keep their families with income, conversely if you work with Perth Happenings you are keeping my children in soccer - it is a win win!

I have a team of amazing bloggers and look forward to introducing them to you - Thanks for supporting us.
