Published February 8th 2012
Late Tuesday afternoon a friend rings to ask if I'm available that evening. He's quite excited because he found out one of his friend's daughters was playing at the Tokio Bar in Darling Harbour.

I was free and went along with no idea of who I was about to see, what kind of music I was about to listen to or even which venue I was invited to. Blindly I followed and I was pleasantly surprised.

We arrived at the venue and to my surprise there was no charge. Tick one! A venue with talented musicians playing for the love of it. Hooray to Tokio Bar.

Alanna Cherote is a very attractive and talented female singer song writer. She was getting ready and started the nights talent line up off.

The first song "Believe Your Own Lies" was great - it reminded me so much of music my mother used to listen to, Johnny Cash. There's a story behind the music and it has feeling. You feel it when she sings.

The songs rolled in and each one gave me a different feeling. There were moments I found myself taking deep breaths as I felt some desperation/deprivation, not sure what it was.

This girl can sing and play guitar - she's deep too!

I did feel slight sense of something yet to come, there's more in this girl that has yet to emerge and I think that is to let go, to be the story on stage and be proud of it.

A song writer who writes from the heart and sings their life story to the world takes more than just talent - it takes guts and I guess it's not easy to be so exposed.

This lovely talent is a budding star and well worth following up on.
