The scorching Henrietta Ford, blues/rock/raunch artist extraordinaire, nowadays performing cutback and solo as herself, Tyree Robertson, delivers her sensual brand of kiwi blues, rock and comedy.

Renowned for her quick witted repartee, honesty of spirit, social commentary and wild woman vocals, she has been compared to Janis Joplin, Melissa Etheridge and Etta James with a Tracey Chapman sensibility.

A finalist for Top Comedian 1999 at the Classic Comedy Club in Auckland, New Zealand's premiere comedy venue, Tyree's delivery is always humourous with an acute sense of the world she lives in. It's rapier-sharp, quick silver satire without victims. It amplifies her musical mountainscape and calls us to a soft place where our minds and hearts may fall.

As Henrietta Ford, Tyree has pioneered for herself and other musicians, comedians and performance artists a place in Auckland's entertainment history. She's held residencies and ran the Henrietta Ford Stagecoach - a mixed genre performance evening - for three and a half years at Auckland's Java Jive and Temple bars, the city's original live music venues.
