“You’re eradicating labels of barriers,” says Nai Palm. “The words are important, but the way they’re shaped makes them malleable for the listener to absorb. How you proceed involves a larger activity and I love that.” 

Her performance with a pink nylon-stringed guitar at a small Melbourne club inspired bass player Paul Bender to seek her out. Hiatus Kaiyote played their first gig at the Bohemian Masquerade Ball among sword swallowers, fire twirlers and gypsy death core bands — a setting that suited their eclectic nature.

You can catch her special intimate performance to include gritty, soulful covers, flashes of new material, and stripped down Hiatus Kaiyote tunes.

Ronnie Scott’s 47 Frith Street, Soho, W1, Monday 5 September, 11pm.
