SINGER-SONGWRITER JACINTA LE
Full circle: Canberra singer-songwriter Jacinta Le launches her debut EP in Canberra on July 26.
Dislocation delivers inspiration
Leaving Canberra and starting out
on her own was a period of
remarkable transition for singer-
songwriter Jacinta Le, but one she
never anticipated would become
the basis of her debut album.
Recorded while completing her
undergraduate degree in
contemporary performance at
JMC Academy in Melbourne,
From Little Things delivers five
unbridled originals charting a
whirlwind year where the 22-year-
old found her feet.
"It all started as journal entries
which made their way on to the
piano and then on to the record,"
"It's basically all about the

Accompanied by piano, the pop
tracks use honest and familiar
lyrics to chart heartbreaks, new
loves and new directions starting
fresh in another city.
While living in Canberra the
songstress featured as a guest
performer at a number of annual
ACT public events, including the
Floriade Night-Fest and the
Australian War Memorial

decisions she has made so far was
to put her passion for musical
theatre to one side and focus on
her solo career.
"I came to realise that I really
love theatre as a hobby, especially
the social aspect of it in Canberra.
In Melbourne I had less of that
feeling of community, but
Melbourne is where I really
discovered my writing and myself
as a solo artist."
Finishing her diploma in
teaching this November, Ms Le
hopes to record again before
travelling to Japan to take up a
music teaching program in 2015.
Returning for her album launch
in July will be a chance to share
her debut work with the friends
that supported her in earlier years.
"Teaching music will be my
bread and butter with performing
and collaborating on the side," she
said. "I always felt extremely
supported in Canberra and still
