Good Luck, Everyheart

6:00 pm until 10:00 pm
The Owens Collective
101 Maitland Road, Newcastle, NSW, 2296

JAMES R. NAPIER has had a lifelong fascination with music and photography. Throughout his twenties he was a regular singer in pubs and cafes around Sydney (often teamed with guitarist Robert Taylor), and has opened for bands such as the Backsliders and Mic Conway’s National Junkband. His soaring vocal style was inspired by an early love of female blues and jazz singers – Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith among others – whose influence he absorbed and made his own. In recent years, James has created a breathtaking portfolio of photographs- often depicting lone figures in natural or industrial settings, lost souls caught in some kind of supernatural slip-stream. These photographs are being exhibited publicly for the first time tonight at The Owen’s Collective, Islington, Newcastle. This free event is a beautiful collision of his music and his art- James will kick the evening off with a live performance and invites everyone to stay around afterwards to look at the pictures, enjoy a drink (or three) and some beautiful culinary creations by Newcastle-based caterers- The Wilderness Chef. And, as the icing on the proverbial cake, he welcomes the incredible local talents of Terence Koo (jazz pianist), Andrew Wallace (bass) and Rob Coxon (drums) as his in-house band. Get ready for a MASSIVE musical and artistic treat.
