SAT 12TH NOV 8:30PM $10 Special guest Marty McKenna
What happens when a croc skinner puts down his knife and leaves the Kimberley in his house truck, with his banjo in tow?
A chilling collection of songs that have been described as: ‘Gothic Australiana’.
Harry Jakamarra forged his song writing, banjo and guitar skills in settings as diverse as the desert sands north of Timbuktu, the choked back streets of Varanasi on the Ganges River, and the uninhabited reaches of the Great Sandy Desert in WA.
At 23 years old Harry has already had a lifetime of interesting adventures. His captivating stories manifest in dark, emotionally charged songs. His powerful poetry, original voice and raw, intricate banjo and guitar sounds are exquisitely framed in his latest recording. The sparse nature of the production makes the strength and maturity of Harry’s songs very clear.
Jeff Lang as engineer/producer was a perfect match.
With guest vocals from Liz Stringer, double bass by Ben Franz (The Waifs) and tasteful drumming by Harry’s brother Albert these songs will have a lasting effect.
Harry's second album is set for release in 2017...
