Join us in August for our inaugural event.
Brigitta is an actor, improviser and voice-over artist. You may recognise her voice from multiple fast-food chain commercials sadly none of which are for Chocolate companies.
Chocolate is where her true love lies and proudly she can name every current Cadbury flavour in confectionary isles right now!
Always being told to crouch down as an adult when standing a lengthy 5’10 feet tall, Brigitta is more than excited to be standing up to share some ha ha’s and tell some traumatic truths with you all.
A graduate from Theatre Nepean and esteemed Improvisation school, Second City (Toronto), Brigitta is no stranger to improvisation or character acting and as a result, she has developed the ability to take direction collaboratively and constructively.
Some of her clients include Crime Investigation Channel (Foxtel), Nova 96.9, Mastercard, Free FM Ghana, Oxfam, and The Australian Open, just to name a few. The truest testament to her work has come from a review that stated, “Brown has one of those voices you could listen to for hours”, received for her recent role in the 5-star acclaimed stage show ‘The Girl’ which saw her voice ten different characters live.
Kim Sheehy is an Australian singer/songwriter, best known for her appearances in the fifth season of the Australian version of The Voice. A prominent member of Team Delta, Kim was dubbed the season’s “comeback queen” and received multiple rave reviews.
After having not turned a chair in Season 2, she returned to the competition a professional and graceful contender in 2016, placing in the top 12 of the singing competition.
Kim was invited back in 2019 to be part of the world first “Allstars Season” where she progressed through three rounds under the mentorship of Guy Sebastian.
The itch has returned and Kim knows it is time to put her experience into practice get back on the stage and into the studio.
As the narrator of her musical journey, Kim intends to guide her listeners through personal and heartfelt tales of her life, love, and ambition with irresistible authenticity.
Listening to Kim in the recording studio, or in one of her stunning live performances, you will be wrapped up in nostalgia as Kim’s voice commands your attention. Whether performing solo or backed up by her band, Kim’s technical skill as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, along with her ability to evoke emotion, will leave you wanting more. Kim’s music tells a story, and it’s a story you’ll want to hear.
Claire has been a floor dancer for many years. She loves all music from Rock ‘n Roll to Techno, Baroque, Ballet and Opera as well. She is very interested in which tunes are better for Cabaret, which is her other love.
Claire’s first love is dancing!
Claire has visited the Follie’s Bergere in Paris and was inspired by them. Also the Ladyboys aka Katoyes of Thailand eg Simon Cabaret. She wants everyone to be happy and enjoy love.
About Lemons Live
Lemons Live is an extension of the SGLBA’s Lemons with a Twist®. Lemons, as it’s known by many, started in October 1999 and has been a staple of Sydney’s LGBTIQ scene for twenty years.
For several years Sydney based artists have struggled to find live performance opportunities with the closure of many venues on the back of state government changes to trading hours and related issues.
Why Lemons Live?
Founded in 1981, the SGLBA is a community-based not-for-profit LGBTIQ business association. We see these artists as business people, looking for ways to grow their brand and derive an income.
We see an opportunity to connect artists with our members and friends in a relaxed Friday night event at Gingers, The Oxford Hotel.
How can you help?
If you know LGBTIQ artists looking for live performance opportunities, please contact our Events Director with details today. As you attend our events, be sure to follow artists on Social Media, tag them, add photos and post reviews.
