PERTH FESTIVAL TO LET LOVE ROAR ON VALENTINE’S NIGHT WITH ABBE MAY’S CLAM JAM

PERTH FESTIVAL TO LET LOVE ROAR ON VALENTINE’S NIGHT WITH ABBE MAY’S CLAM JAM

Perth Festival says YES to equality for all.

Whether it’s same-sex marriage or the gender imbalance in the music industry, the Festival stands with rock’n’ roll shredder Abbe May to reclaim Valentine’s Day in the name of love and the fair-go.

Get set for an unforgettable night on February 14 when the powerhouse guitarist, singer and songwriter presents Clam Jam – her mini-festival of women in music – as a part of the contemporary music line up for Perth Festival.

Clam Jam will be a double celebration to launch May’s fifth album FRUIT and champion Australia’s finest female talent. A joyous showcase of musical prowess and kickass talent, this is a night for everyone to feel the love.

Tickets for Clam Jam are now on sale for Friends of the Festival. General public sales open tomorrow, Friday 20 October, at 9am AWST.

FRUIT is the strongest effort yet from the genre-hopping music chameleon whose poetic, hard-hitting lyrics declare her sexuality with pride.

Produced by Matt Gio (San Cisco), FRUIT is an album of electro-soul explosions, underpinned with the personal tales of someone who has found her roar.

‘FRUIT is an open declaration of my identity and struggle with my sexuality. It’s an open love letter to anyone who might feel they are alone in this,’ May says.

‘During this very public, generally non-fact based, very mean-spirited debate about whether or not same-sex couples should be given equal right to legally marry their loved ones, it is important that supporters stand up and show up for those who are affected.’.

‘FRUIT says I’m here, I’m REALLY gay and I’m proud of it because there is nothing to be ashamed of if you are LGBTQIA+ or one of our allies. Love is Love. It’s 20 bloody 17 after all!’

As one of the strongest and most respected women in Australian music, May launched the Clam Jam series to support women in music and showcase the talents of the awesome female musicians in the industry.

‘These artists are incredible and I just wanted to give them a chance to play. They deserve these opportunities because they are great.’

FRUIT is released on 2 February, with pre-release through Luxury Cat Records & MGM on 13 December.
