Fantine

Named after the mother of the better-known Cosette in the great humanist epic Les Miserables, Fantine has all the soul, all the fire, all the ever-present vocal power that her namesake lacks in fiction.

There are some things you can hear about, some things you can ken from a tv tube, pair of pc speakers or a sharply printed word. And then there's Fantine Pritoula's voice. Named after the mother of the better-known Cosette in the great humanist epic Les Miserables, Fantine has all the soul, all the fire, all the ever-present vocal power that her namesake lacks in fiction. It's hard to think of her as an emerging artist, but Fantine still hasn't had some of the high-profile exposure of other local acts. Wednesday night that changes, as she launches her first single, 'Rubber Room', by showcasing her talent at Goodgod Small Club.

Fantine grew up in Russia, the Dominican Republic (a Spanish-speaking country on the same island as Haiti) and Perth. All these cultures, and more, mix in with her songs, her covers and her style. It's a surprise that she's only now producing her first single, after so much musical work around town. She's been promoting this show on the streets of Sydney, Mariachi-style. But don't be fooled, her shows won't stay this small for long. Get a listen in, while it's still possible to do it on a whim.

Tickets will be on sale at the door on the night. Photo by Luke David Kellett
