Approachable Members Of Your Local Community​



Approachable Members Of Your Local Community will make you feel at home by sharing their slice of suburban paradise with you. If you like getting drunk with Grandma at dinner, wearing matching outfits with your best friends, and funky pop grooves, you might be a great addition to the team. From the small Aboriginal community of Woorabinda in Central Queensland comes a 20 year old with a voice ready to be heard. A strong, proud Pitjantjatjara/Torres Strait Islander woman, Miiesha (Pronounced My-ee-sha) seeks to use her R&B/Soul laced voice and music to bring people together, helping educate and inspire. Hallie has never feared vulnerability in front of an audience. In fact, this is where the 20 year old pop-folk artist thrives. The layers of Hallie’s artistic maturity are demonstrated through her innate aptitude to humorously comment on ordinary society and express playfully honest stories. Her idiosyncrasy the foundation of her provocative storytelling.
