Iconic performers Vika Bull and Debra Byrne along with The Brill Band, featuring some of Australia’s finest musicians, reimagine the songs of the most successful and revered female songwriter in pop music history.
Released in 1971, Tapestry was Number one on the Billboard 200 chart for 15 weeks with over 25 million copies sold worldwide. It is considered was one of the most important pop albums of the 20th century producing the mega hits I Feel the Earth Move, You’ve Got A Friend, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, It’s Too Late and Will You Love Me Tomorrow.
Both Vika and Debra have been inspired by the work of Carole King and the Tapestry album and they have joined forces to pay tribute to this incredible artist.
Both artists are well known to Australian households.
For 25 years, the glorious voice of Vika Bull, has comprised one of the most distinctive, versatile and emotionally charged sounds on the Australian music landscape. Since a multi-platinum conquest of pop radio with the Black Sorrows in the late 1980s, Vika Bull has forged a diverse pathway into soul, gospel, blues, country and the island music of her Tongan ancestry. Her rich solo vocals and instinctive harmonies have spawned eight albums with her sister Linda, as well as studio and concert performances by Paul Kelly, Renee Geyer, John Farnham, Hunters & Collectors, Tim Finn, Kasey Chambers, John Butler and Dan Sultan. Since 2013 Vika has been performing to packed houses in theatres around Australia in the smash hit concert At Last – The Etta James Story.
Like Vika, Debra Byrne is an Australian music icon. At age 14 she was chosen as one of six original team members of Young Talent Time. By the time Debra was 16 she had won a Logie and the Queen of Pop award and had a single at number one for seven weeks. In the ‘80s she found her true home of musical theatre with roles in Cats, Jerry’s Girls, Les Miserables, Hot Shoe Shuffle and Sunset Boulevard. She has recorded three solo albums and starred in many Australian television series, most recently as Judy Moran in Fat Tony and Co.
