Independent artist, Jack Carty will play one of Newcastle’s newest venues, The Commons on Friday 14 November.
The 4 years since his unassuming arrival on the Australian music scene with debut E.P Wine & Consequence (2010) have seen: the release of two full length studio albums – 2011’s One Thousand Origami Birds and 2012’s Break Your Own Heart, a collaborative E.P with Sydney based man of mystery Casual Psychotic titled The Predictable Crisis Of Modern Life showcasing a darker and more experimental side to Carty’s writing away from his indie-folk roots, extensive touring nationally and internationally, festivals, songs on soundtracks, critical acclaim, Top five in the APRA Professional Development Awards, SXSW, Canadian Music Week, a MusicOz award and lots and lots of aeroplanes.
Jack said, “I wanted this record to be more collaborative from the start, whether that was in the writing of the songs, or the way we approached the recording sessions. Josh invited me to his man-cave (that’s a space, not a euphemism) and we wrote The Joneses’ in a day. I think you can really hear both of us in there.”
Known for his stripped back and intimate performances, this show at The Commons in Hamilton is bound to be a very special evening.
The Commons is a not-for-profit People’s Library, Café, and Arts Space. The Commons is a welcoming place— a common space. It is a community hub that can be – and is – what you make it. A whole range of different groups already come together in the space that we have and all ideas for groups, workshops and events are welcome.
Tickets for the show are now on sale via the OZTix website.
