Beatrix Bae Bouwman is a singer songwriter living in the foothills of Kunanyi / Mt Wellington in Hobart, Tasmania.
Her songs are haunting and hungry. She sings of awful sunsets, mountain trysts, lightning glass, volcanoes and sinkholes. Her deep voice and soaring soprano are harbingers for disaster both natural and personal. Her honest and simple lyrics share wisdom hard won and will make you ache to be taken back to a raw place where feeling rules over reason, and nature conquers all, eventually.
Described by Missy Higgins as having “a Billy Holiday voice that makes you want to curl up on a couch and listen to her through the rain,” Beatrix was Unearthed by Triple J in 2007 when she was selected by Missy Higgins to support her on her On a Starry Night Tour.
