"Milena is in Cairns in December 2018 for a quick tour, sandwiched between Europe and US! Lucky are we." Gordon Sheard (well known musician and organiser for Milena's visit.
For lovers of authentic blues and soul, the sonic shockwave that is Milena Barrett is like a rip in the space-time continuum. Considered by many as the wild child of Etta James and Steve Marriot, her voice is a time machine transporting us back to a jumping back-woods BBQ shack somewhere deep in the Delta but with a sensitive touch of Parisian nights.
Whether she performs in London, Memphis, or Sydney, the Aussie-born, British singer resonates all the way through the blues, soul and roots rock era. Milena delivers a mystic blend reminiscent of the late great Janis Joplin, but don't be fooled, it's also a voice of today, a knowingly street smart power that evokes the spirit of Amy Winehouse touched with the sensitivity of Adele.
So while Blues Time Magazine compares her with Aretha Franklin, Glen A Baker describes her as 'One of Australia’s most talented Blues & Soul female vocalists, an outstanding Talent like no others' and Steve Arthur of the LA Weekly writes 'Milena’s voice will transport you to this cherish place where only true lovers go, her voice is loaded with pure, genuine and spontaneous passion”
