“ I ain’t never heard a woman finger-pick a guitar like that since Memphis Minnie. She’s the best gal guitar player I heard in more than 35 years.” - Delta pianist & Blues Hall of Fame Legend, ‘Pinetop’ Perkins

“ Far and away the most significant Australian female Blues performer” - Rhythms Magazine

Legendary Blues artists are acclaiming Fiona as one of the great emerging blues women of our day. After 14 years of live performances in Australia, fronting her Southern and New Orleans style blues band, ‘The Mojos’, and five album releases, Fiona embarked on her acoustic career. In 2000 she released her debut solo album, ‘Blues in My Heart’ to critical acclaim. It won her the 2001 Female Blues Artist of the Year, the 2001 APRA Song of the Year, and 2002 Blues Performer of the Year awards, as well as accolades from reviewers and audiences around the world. She was named 2004 Female Blues Vocalist of the Year by the Australian Blues Music Festival Awards (the Chain Awards), following her scooping of the 2003 Victorian Blues Music Awards, with Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Artist of the Year.
