Digging Deeper: O’ Little Sister

February 19, 2015

I would like to introduce you to O’ Little Sister. As much as I love all the sweet, folk songstresses of Brisbane (Amela, Angharad Drake, Clea, and more), I always come back to the intimate and charming tunes of Lucinda Johnson (aka O’ Little Sister). A few times a month, I find myself craving a repeat of the video above of a live Warehouse Wednesday session from Meridian Music. I think at east 100 of the video’s views are probably mine. Deftly harmonized by her real life and music best pal Meredith, Johnson’s quirky lilt weaves gently through melancholic, acoustic guitar in “Kentucky Star.” Like the rest of Johnson’s music, it’s emotive folk at its finest: a simple message wrapped in picturesque metaphor and a careening melody. But, the video is just the tip of the iceberg that is Johnson impressive collection of folk songs. Instead of explaining myself, I’ll let the stunning video portrait from Brisbane filmmaker Danny McShane properly complete the introduction.

Love more of O’ Little Sister on Soundcloud, Bandcamp, and Instagram.
