Last episode for 2021! What a year!! And what a deadly way to finish it off. I have the absolute pleasure of yarning with Gina Williams! Gina is a proud Balladong (Noongar, South West) woman, with links through her grandmother’s line to the Gitja people of the East Kimberley. She is an award-winning singer-songwriter and journalist, who has spent the past three decades committed to sharing stories and writing songs for her community, and with collaborator and best friend, Guy Ghouse.


Gina’s accolades include: 2018 Inductee, West Australian Women’s Hall of Fame; Winner, Aboriginal Category, 2017 West Australian of the Year; and Winner, Indigenous Act of the Year, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2018 West Australian Music Industry (WAMi) Awards. Gina is an Ambassador for the Australian Performing Rights Association, a member of the British Council’s ACCELARATE Arts and Cultural Leadership Alumni and is a Patron of Fairbridge Folk Festival.

It was such an honour to yarn with someone who I listened to on Murri Country Radio 98.9fm. A really inspiring woman who’s doing deadly things!
