Helen Townsend is a prolific songwriter, influenced heavily by her roots, her life’s journey and her unique observations on life.
Her delicate, understated guitar work interlocks beautifully with a voice that delivers subtle and extended vocals – and what a voice it is. She was born in Sydney, Australia, and grew up in the suburb of Connells Point. The youngest of four, the Townsend girls were surrounded by music from an early age. Inspired by her sisters and her neighbourhood friends, Helen was gripped by music and picked up the guitar at 13. A wide range of music reached out to her over the years - from a Kiss concert at the age of 10, to Frank Sinatra to the Ramones; and local bands in her late teens like Bondi Cigars through to Wilson Picket and Ray Charles. Discovering Rockabilly and Western Swing dancing at 19, she was exposed to the music that allowed her to gravitate to Americana, where she has focussed ever since.
She has toured her releases at festivals, house concerts and residencies in Fremantle and with yet another EP “Love Lies ‘n’ Leaving” in progress and due for the first single “Devils Curse” launch September 18th, 2020 is quickly becoming another exciting year for Helen.
Helen Townsend has filled people’s hearts with joy over the years, has entertained thousands and has brought hope to several causes that she has embraced……and her new EP is just around the corner.
