The music of mid north coast artist, SNEZ, embodies the art of songwriting in its most personal and universal
forms. This enchanting songstress has a forte for describing the experiences of everyday life in a way that
resonates with people. Coming from a Macedonian working-class family, where stories about hardship, romance
and work ethic have been passed down through generations, Snez subtly weaves these influences into her own
stories and songs, featuring traditional Macedonian songs from her parents mother country. Featuring snez on
vocals, acoustic guitar and bouzouki.
In 2009, SNEZ released her debut album ‘Gypsy Soul’, and there began her journey as a travelling storyteller.
Hailing from the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, with guitar in hand, SNEZ spent the next 5 years roaming
remote and regional Australia, finding a willing audience around campfires, at cattle stations, on the side of
highways and along pavements, at nursing homes, refugee camps, cafes, pubs, living rooms and indigenous
schools; squeezing her world into a campervan for months at a time.
SNEZ seems to be able to cut to the heart of the matter not only lyrically, but live on stage. Her warm, passionate
and compelling performance style, is peppered with comedic and haunting tales, layered harmonies and
beautiful folk/pop melodies. When it comes to writing and performing, SNEZ definitely rules with her heart, not
her head. Her personal life has become fodder for her art. Genevieve Jacobs from ABC Radio Canberra
‘We often have singer/songwriters come in and you think …it’s a cookie cutter, it’s same songs about boys and
cars…but [with Snez] it is very personal; SNEZ’s music is very emotional.’
SNEZ has performed at many large concerts and festivals around Australia, sharing the stage with notable artists
including Renee Geyer, Jenny Morris, Robyne Dunn, Sophie B Hawkins (USA), Mahalia Barnes, and GANGajang
