The first thing that strikes you about Thandi Phoenix is her voice. Powerful, soulful and honest, her vocals will stop you in your tracks.
At just 24, the Sydney singer-songwriter has been touted as “one of Australia’s most promising up and comers” (The AU Review), with songs that blend pop with electronica and raw, honest storytelling. Her talents come endorsed by internationals like Jhene Aiko, Tinashe, Rudimental and Tinie Tempah, all of whom have called on Thandi for support slots on their Australian tours. Thandi was called upon by powerhouse Vera Blue, as her main support on her 2017 sold out national run.
Thandi Phoenix’s latest single ‘My Way’, is a drum & bass-flavoured track produced by none other than Rudimental, who heard and fell in love with Thandi’s music on their Australian tour. “It’s pretty mental to have Rudimental do it, because I loved their first album Home so much,” she explains. As she tells it, her lyrics have a message about carving out your own path: “it’s about not conforming to what people want or expect of you. Making yourself happy through what you do, and being proud of yourself with what you do.”
