Anactoria (Tamlyn Magee, NSW) is a songwriter not afraid to do things her own way. Taking the harp way beyond it’s traditional sound and into a richly layered territory of alt-folk / art-pop, she sets the scene for a vocal performance that draws on an instinctive flair for performance and an acute perceptiveness into the more subtle aspects of being human.

Following the release of her debut EP Twentythree in May 2018, Anactoria was awarded a Creative Development Fellowship through CreateNSW which sees her temporarily based in Melbourne to develop her professional arts practice. As part of the Fellowship she is working with a variety of songwriting, performance and production mentors, including Melbourne’s Georgia Fields.

With a full-length album due for release in early 2020, Anactoria is blazing with new material on womanhood, motherhood, singledom and being an artist.

...Anactoria is a fierce, yet gentle force... In my ten years of touring the country, I have not seen or heard anything like the unique magic she possesses. She crafts and presents her material as if channeling a beautiful and ethereal force.
