Jacinta PriceSong – Don’t Go Falling in Love 

In November 2013 Jacinta Price is launching her debut album – DRY RIVER – a mix of folk, soul and country music that pays tribute to her life growing up in Central Australia.

DRY RIVER is produced by Australian country music legend Bill Chambers and released by CAAMA Music. It’s available for purchase via iTunes or visit www.caamamusic.com.au.

A combination of Blues, Soul, Roots and Folk Jacinta’ sound has been compared to that of artist Tracy Chapman after many a performance. Jacinta was born in Darwin and has grown up in Alice Springs.

Being part of two cultures Warlpiri and Anglo-Celtic has always influenced the way in which her music has been created. As a youngster she played the violin before her focus switched to voice as part of local hip hop outfits ‘Flava 4’ and ‘C-Mobs’.

She also performs as a solo artist writing her own material and in 2001 she was chosen to sing the national anthem for the Yeperenye Federation Festival. Jacinta has also worked as a music workshop facilitator in remote communities and local high schools.

She performs regularly at the annual Alice Springs Desert Festival and held song writing workshops. These days Jacinta co-manages the ‘Desert Divas’ a collective of young Indigenous women who love to perform music and are there to inspire other Indigenous women to follow their dreams as singers and performers.

Also known as Sassy-J, Jacinta was singing soulful vocals and spitting rhymes with Alice Springs’ hip-hop act ‘Catch The Fly’.
