An accomplished Broome songstress, who has shared the stage with some of Australia’s biggest names, will launch her second album at a local event next week.

After the success of her first album It Is What It Is, Tanya Ransom is set to release her second album, The Art of Departing, at The Good Cartel on September 1 entitled The Art of Departing.

The singer-songwriter has been performing since the age of 19 and supported artists such as Missy Higgins, Kate Miller-Heidke and Dan Sultan.

She recorded the album in Margaret River earlier this year at The Hairy Back Marron studio.

Ransom said she was excited to be launching the new album in her hometown of Broome

“I’ve always felt so supported by the Broome community with my music,” she said. “I want to celebrate it with those people who have been there from the start of this journey.

“This album is quite different from my first and I feel my music has grown immensely in the last four years since that release.”

Ransom said her album is filled with songs of loss and love, heartbreak and the beauty of Australia.

“The lyrics and melodies accompany a laid-back soulful folk blues with a hint of alternative country.

“I’ve had overwhelming positive feedback from everyone who has heard the album already, so it’ll be great to keep that ball rolling when the album is officially released.” The folk singer will be joined at her launch party by local talent Dave Mann, Albert Gray, George Bishop, Wil Thomas and Bec Schofield, as well as Tonchi

Tickets are available at The Good Cartel, which is set to be transformed from a cafe into a theatre space come the September 1 launch.

Doors open at 7pm.
