In 2019 acclaimed singer/songwriter Bloom brings the music of Linda Ronstadt to life with an incredible band featuring some of Australia's most respected musicians in a concert tour of Australia and New Zealand. Constantly feeling she was born in the wrong generation, for Bloom, this tour is as personal as it gets. Bloom has a feverish connection with music from the decades of the 60's and 70's and has a strong urge to bring Linda Ronstadt and the music that is her legacy to future generations, embracing and reinvigorating Linda's rich musical history and the architecture she has left on the music industry. Expect to hear tracks that made up Ronstadt's 1979 tour set list including Blue Bayou, When Will I Be Loved, It's So Easy, When Something Is Wrong With My Baby, That'll Be The Day, Just One Look, Back In The USA and many more.
It is widely known that Linda was forced to retire from singing in 2009 as a result of Parkinson's disease. Subsequently Bloom is lending her voice with this tour to help raise awareness of Parkinson's disease supporting the Shake It Up Australia Foundation who are partnered with The Michael J. Fox Foundation in their quest to fund research to find a cure. Bloom joins the likes of TV presenter Liz Cantor, TV personality Sally Obermeder and fellow artist Peter Byrne (Neil Diamond performer) as an official Shake It Up Ambassador and will utilise her shows to raise funds for the foundation.
"I am very honoured to be an Ambassador for Shake It Up" says Bloom. "I not only to get to perform the songs of one of my all-time favourite artists, Linda Ronstadt, but at the same time raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease in the hope to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for Australian's and their families living with Parkinson's.
Bloom has had heads turning and has been gaining International critical acclaim with her effortless soulful vocal resonance of power vocalists Adele and Amy Winehouse with her Adele and Amy Songbook Tour. She has been described as "one of Australia's finest vocalists" and Six-Time Golden Guitar Award winning singer/songwriter Melinda Schneider describing her as "the next generation of amazing vocalists".
As Linda did to Australian audiences in 1979, come and be charmed by the Australian vocal powerhouse that is Bloom and celebrate all that is Linda Ronstadt.
