Katy Soljak is pleased to announce the release of her album Sex 4 Sale, a collection of previously unreleased recordings created in Los Angeles in 1993.

Known predominantly for her blues style, this 10-song recording is an eclectic blend of material ranging from acoustic blues and spoken word to country to full funk band dynamics.

To listen to Katy Soljak’s latest release is to step back in time to the Los Angeles bohemian music world of the late 80’s/Early 90’s, where Soljak immersed herself for 10 years.

After her involvement in the successful NZ show ‘Ladies Sing The Blues’ in 1984-86, Soljak moved to LA and was forced to start her music career from scratch. Over time she forged relationships with accomplished musicians Steve Hodges (Tom Waits drummer), Paul Barrere (Little Feat), and Bill Barrett (harmonica genius), developing her own coffee house sound.

Her spoken word style evolved while performing alongside Jack Brewer and The Carma Bums; beat, free style poets who played around LA. This talented bohemian set encouraged Soljak’s writing and helped her record the acoustic portion of her album, introducing her to a local musician called SPOT with whom Soljak developed a harmonious musical partnership.

The title track of the album, ‘Sex 4 Sale’, is a bluesy acoustic number with a mix of poetic spoken word and throaty heartfelt vocals. Driving to her job at an international children’s school, Soljak first witnessed street workers on Sunset Blvd; faded beauties and Hollywood hopefuls, waiting on the same corners day in day out. These characters inspired many songs of the period.

Sex 4 Sale is a window of discovery for Soljak in a town overrun with highways of big hopes, broken dreams and people honing their creative voice within this extreme landscape of glitterati and guttersnipes. Soljak’s songs are full of fire and compassion but predominantly, heart.

To celebrate the release, Soljak will be performing at The Kings Arms on Sunday October 27th with special guests Bernie Griffen and The Flaming Pearls, Road Warriors, Swampland and Silke Hartung and at Stefano’s, Waiheke Island on the 2nd of November with The Flaming Pearls and Waiheke’s own cabaret act, The Sassy Dancers. Show starts 8.15pm.

Sex 4 Sale is released on October 25th via Amplifier and Gala Records.
