Australian singer-songwriter Babitha, the solo project of Gadigal/Sydney creative Imogen Grist, is proud to announce her signing to Spunk Records and the release date of her debut EP on February 26. Following a string of sold out performances across Sydney, Babitha will be celebrating the launch of her EP at Mary’s Underground on Friday March 12, and at La La La’s in Wollongong on Thursday 18th March.
Babitha (pronounced ‘Tabitha’ with a ‘B’), is the first musical project of Imogen Grist, a modern day Jolene inspired by the mythology of the ‘other woman’. Both reflective of music’s golden years yet critically of our time, Grist drapes self-reflection in heartache through a folk-country ballad hybrid of rich harmonies and soaring melodies, reminiscent of contemporaries Julia Jacklin, Big Thief, boygenius and more. Babitha is equal parts vulnerable and evocative, commanding and detached.
