Album Cover DIGITAL.jpgThe website of South Australian singer-songwriter Kelly Brouhaha states that she ‘spends most of the year around a campfire, travelling in her 1992 Toyota Hiace Van called ‘Pamela Vanderson’. That last piece of information is a clue: namely, it reveals that Brouhaha has a well-developed sense of humour and language. The mention of a campfire is also a clue, because it relates to Brouhaha’s work, which involves a lot of travelling the country playing music, sometimes in the company of Beccy Cole and Libby O’Donovan, and that experience, and Brouhaha’s way with words, leads to the creation of a cracking good song in the form of her new single, ‘40,000 Star Hotel’. The 40 000 stars of the title are not from the Michelin guide but the southern sky, and this robust, appealing song gives us a sense of Brouhaha’s life on the road. It was co-written with Aleyce Simmonds and produced by Shane Nicholson.

This is the first single from Brouhaha’s forthcoming self-titled album, which will be released in June. You can pre-order the album from the artist at
