About

Babitha (think ‘Tabitha’ with a ‘B’) is the solo project of Imogen Grist - a multidisciplinary artist raised in country NSW to a backing track of Neil Young, ABBA and Fleetwood Mac.

Inspired by the archetypal ‘other woman’, Babitha’s brand of loaded yet languid alt-country ballads see guitar-laden tracks break ground beneath fables of escape and heartbreak. With soaring harmonies and lyrics that cut to the core, Babitha is equal parts vulnerable and evocative, commanding and detached. Her work evokes music’s golden years, but feels critically of our time.

Since the release of her hit single ‘Get Away’ in 2020, Babitha has gone on to sign with Spunk Records (AUS/NZ), amassed 1.5 million Spotify streams, landed ‘Album of the Week’ on FBi Radio, 2SER and Edge Radio, plus rotation on ABC Country, Double j, and college radio across America. In 2021 she was nominated for the ‘Next Big Thing’ category in the FBi SMAC Awards and showcased at the BIGSOUND Music Conference in 2022. 

Bolstered by a band of local stars in their own right (Russell Fitzgibbon from Skeleten, Cecil Coleman from Body Type and Jordan Ireland from The Middle East), Babitha has sold out multiple headline shows, supported notable acts including King Stingray, Julia Jacklin and Andy Shauf, and appeared on festival lineups for Vivid, Yours and Owls, Country and Innerwestern, Riverboats and Groundswell Festival in the UK.

This year, Babitha embarks upon a nation-wide tour to celebrate the release of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Brighter Side of Blue’.
