Taasha Coates To Release Solo Album


With success as the voice of the multi-ARIA Award winning  The Audreys, singer/ songwriter Taasha Coates is now set to release her first solo album ‘Taasha Coates and her Melancholy Sweethearts’ out August 26.

During The Audreys temporary hiatus, Taasha has kept busy in the studio recording with fellow singer-songwriter and producer Shane Nicholson, showing off a new voice through her solo material.

To tempt fans and give a taste of what is to come on August 26, Taasha has released the first single from the album ‘This House is Gonna Burn’ which is complimented by a stunning clip.

Taasha said“I wrote these tracks through March and April either on the piano or on the ukulele if my kids were in bed, then we started putting them down in May. The songs are more personal and direct than anything I did with The Audreys, but I like that about them. There are some cheeky songs, some sexy songs and some sad songs. Shane Nicholson did an amazing job working with me to get them all down and sounding great. He reckons I did alright “for a girl”. Ha! I hope you dig it.”
