Blue Eyes Cry

Blue Eyes Cry - Fronted by a brilliant voice in Iseula Hingano, backed by a cooking band led by her partner, Nathan Brett (Guitar) Blue Eyes Cry are certainly a Blues act on the rise. The other band members are Stuart Prendergast (Bass) and Cameron Smith (Drums).

Originally hailing from the North Coast of NSW, Iseula, Nathan and Cameron have moved to Melbourne to further their musical ambitions. Upon arriving they linked up with bassist Stuart, to form a line up that is performing the Blues in a sophisticated and modern manner.

Iseula has performed at some of Australia's premier music festivals and venues. Spending a few years in London, she absorbed as much as she could about the music business in one of the most competitive environments in the world. Upon returning to her home town of Coffs Harbour, she linked up with Nathan to form Blue Eyes Cry. Entering a local talent competition, they took out first prize, and with their winnings, decamped to Melbourne.

Influences run the gamut of the modern Blues scene - Robert Cray, Eva Cassidy, Robin Trower, through to Soul artists - Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway etc.

Since their relocation to Melbourne, Blues Eyes Cry have captured the attention of local Blues fans, the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society, Hugo Armstrong of the Blues Train and John Durr of Black Market Music.
