RAMBLIN’ NIGHTS feel all warm n fuzzy to begin hosting it’s monthly capers of alt-country, blues, rock and soul to a new home at The Sly Fox & to kick it all off in June, Not Good With Horses will be joining Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes to showcase their brand new albums.
LACHCHLAN BRYAN and the WILDES have built their reputation on storytelling. Over the past eight years they have released four records, toured Europe and the USA multiple times, shared stages with Americana and country heavyweights and picked up a string of awards, including the Golden Guitar for ‘alt country album of the year’ with their landmark release Black Coffee.
They’ve never told stories like the ones on new record ‘Some Girls (Quite) Like Country Music’. It’s by far the band’s most ‘adult’ work. ‘Some Girls’ is a country record, but draws as heavily upon the influence of Leonard Cohen and Billy Bragg as it does Willie Nelson and Townes Van Zandt.
Sydney is the second stop on their ‘Small World Tour’ which takes it to Victoria and NSW before heading to Swiitzerland, Germany, England and Scotland before winding up at The Gympie Muster in August. www.lachlanbryan.com
Sydney’s NOT GOOD WITH HORSES have become a mainstay on the alt-country scene, playing pubs, bars and bowling clubs whilst refining their cosmopolitan blend of traditional country, acoustic folk, soul & forlorn blues.
They’ve just released their long awaited album ‘FAULTLINES’ in March & have been receiving rave reviews. “A smouldering, snaking groove, richly ornamented with some subtle and evocative guitar interplay and the sultry ache of Brielle Davis’ voice surveying the ruins and aftermath of a relationship.” – Post To Wire www.ngwh.com.au
Opening the night is Maitland’s DAVE WELLS. There are certain writers who command moving melodies and lyrics in equal measure. Dave Wells is one of those supreme talents, and has quickly garnered a word-of-mouth reputation as one of the Hunter’s finest songwriters and performers.
