Love of Adele in Bloom

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Arts - Tanya Macnaughton

PERTH singer Amanda Canzurlo aka Bloom is count­ing down the days un­til Adele’s Aus­tralian tour, when she will see the Bri­tish su­per­star live for the first time in Su­bi­aco.

Not only is Canzurlo a big fan but she will also per­form her own show Bloom Sings The Adele Song­book at As­tor Theatre in Mt Law­ley on June 3.

“I love the power and dy­nam­ics in her voice and I love that she light­ens the mood of her shows with the com­i­cal ban­ter be­tween songs,” she said.

“We have that in com­mon; I love to make my au­di­ence cry, but it is just as im­por­tant to make them laugh.”

Canzurlo, who re­leased her de­but self-ti­tled EP in 2015, said she was not only in love with Adele’s voice but also the beauty of her songs.

“They can be so sad, yet so beau­ti­ful in melody,” she said.

“It is im­por­tant to me to re­ally con­nect with the songs and the lyrics, to some­how link my own emo­tions and ex­pe­ri­ences to the song so that my au­di­ence be­lieve me when I sing, rather than try be her.

“I knew there was an au­then­tic con­nec­tion that I could de­velop a show from.”

Carzurlo will be ac­com­pa­nied by a 16-piece band fea­tur­ing the WA String Orches­tra and is run­ning an on­line com­pe­ti­tion to find her sup­port act.

“They will win a 30-minute paid sup­port slot and one of their orig­i­nal songs scored by a world class com­poser,” she said.

“They then get to per­form that song as a part of their set live with the orches­tra.

“This is just our way of giv­ing back to the lo­cal in­dus­try where it all started for some of us.”

En­tries can be up­loaded to the Bloom Sings The Adele Song­book Face­book event page at www.face­ 0 un­til Fe­bru­ary 28, where peo­ple can vote for their favourite act un­til March 31.

The top three videos with the most votes will be judged by a panel of in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als and the win­ner an­nounced on April 8.
