RHYTHMS MAGAZINE
“Songs inspired by a Hollywood movie about a nymphomaniac that was named after a 1927 Blind Lemon Jefferson blues number. What’s not to get excited about?  She’s a little bit country, she’s a little bit Southern Gothic horror, she’s our favourite singer from FNQ” Rhythms Magazine - 2015
 

FOOTSTOMP MUSIC
"LEANNE TENNANT is one of the most authentic artists that I have worked with in a very long time.  Bearing The Crown taking out the Queensland Music Award is only the tip of the iceberg for Leanne.  She is going to be sending shivers up our backs for many years to come." GRAHAM ASHTON - Footstomp Music - Director - 2015

GREAT OCEAN QUARTERLY MAGAZINE

“As Leanne begins a softly-hummed and improvised vocal, the audience falls silent, a breeze blows off the waters of the inlet and down the path.  And in that moment she has calmed the savagery of the morning and somehow created a true – if temporary – paradise” -  Cameron Fergus, Great Ocean Quarterly Magazine - 2015


TOWNSVILLE BULLETIN
Leanne Tennant's voice has a distinct indie, blues & roots tone with lyrics that make you think, "this girl has got it going on". - Anna Chisholm, Townsville Bulletin


JIMI HOCKING
We called into '12 Bar Blue' during the Cairns Blues Festival.  It was an incredible scene with a rocking band fronted by a sassy rockabilly gal called Leanne Tennant.  She had the crowd eating out of her hand and within minutes, so were we!. - Jimi Hocking, The Screaming Jets


ABC RADIO
One of the best aspects of presenting a radio program is the opportunity it gives me to pu music lovers and musicians together and there's nothing quite so rewarding as the moment the phone rings at the station and someone says, "I loved that song."  I've had that experience many times when I've played the music of FNQ singer-songwriter Leanne Tennant.  She's one of those performers so at home in front of an audience that neither wants the show to end. - Richard Dinnen, ABC Far North Radio.


BILL CHAMBERS
Leanne Tennant is a serious Australian talent.  Her lyrics express exactly what she feels and she sings with a unique voice that immediately grabs your attention.  I'm a true believer. - Bill Chambers, The Hillbillykillers

The Junk Bar, 215 Waterworks Rd, Ashgrove

A very special show presented by the Junk Bar. The Junk Bar is owned by Jamie Trevaskis who is the producer of RED WINE, LATE NIGHTS.

Tickets are strictly limited to this show. Tickets Pre-Sale $10 + b/f, (Doors open 7:30pm)

GETTING THERE Junk is hidden on Ashgrove Ave, at the corner of 215 Waterworks Road, Ashgrove. No neon, no flashing lights- just look for the sliding door with the velvet curtains.

If you find somewhere and you don’t like it- it’s probably not the right place.

There is a constant stream of cabs and buses out the front, which makes getting to and from us easy.

NEW CITY GLIDER MAROON BUS SERVICE-

You can now travel from Coorparoo, Wooloongabba, Stones Corner, The City and Paddington straight to the heart of Ashgrove on the Maroon City Glider.

It will drop you off at stop 44 on Stewart Road which is just a hop, skip and a jump away from us- and travels every 10 min in peak hour and every 15 minutes in off peak.

This service also operates till 12.25 am on Friday and Saturday nights so it’s never been so easy to get to and from Junk on public transport. This service stops in the city at The Cultural Centre, Ann St and Roma St stations. Call 131230 for more information.

If catching public transport, catch the 379, 380 or 381 from the city to St Finbar’s stop no 15/16 Ashgrove. (This is just across the road almost from us).

There are cabs ever ready out the front to take you home.
