Rochelle is a Butchulla/Kalkadoon/Wirri/Kokoberra woman who started singing and performing at a young age in the churches and choirs of Far North Queensland.
Her long journey has forged a powerful voice that celebrates the strength, beauty and love within all of us. In her early twenties, Rochelle had breakout success with her original tracks “Too Deadly My Sister” and “Black to Reality” from her seminal EP Black to Reality, an uplifting and inspirational ode to her First Nation people. The conviction of her live performances leaves audiences breathless, and in recent years Rochelle has found mainstream success as she went from nurse and mother, to star on Australia’s X factor.
Rochelle’s newest EP, Soul Mumma was released in December 2017, and audiences at Festival of Voices can expect a live and intimate performance by Rochelle and her guitarist showcasing her breakout songs, and other original material from her solo music releases.
