PJ Wolf returns to Colbourne Ave hot on the heals of releasing his new EP Arcadia Street.
He'll be performing songs from the EP as well as some all new material with his band (Barney Wakeford/keys, Jon Sewell/Bass and Tom Wright/Drums).
For more information check out www.pjwolf.net
The night will be opened by Central Coast singer/songwriter Mike McCarthy.
McCarthy has joined forces with Sean Cashin (Guitar/Vocals and Percussion) and Coral Latella (Vocals, Violin and Mandolin). The trio will be performing songs from McCarthy's six CD releases as well as songs being workshopped for a coming album in 2011.
getting off the wall with a thriller:
jazz musicians giving props to the king of pop :
featuring anna rizzo, tj eckleberg, pete harding, ella nielson, spike mason, and the incredible Adrien Andre : six Sydney based musicians and vocalists offering their own takes on wonderfully crafted and immortal songs that have shaped us all... Including songs such as Billie Jean, Thriller, Man in the Mirror, Human Nature... Plus a special group performance of "We are the World".
PJ Wolf finds bios either make him sound cooler than he is, or alternatively; in trying to achieve exactly that end, far less cool than he'd like people to imagine him. That being said…
Drawing on an eclectic range of musical influences from Erik Satie to Bob Dylan, PJ Wolf explores the beautiful, the terrible and the profound through his unique alt-pop sound.
In 2008 PJ was a winner of the triple J unearthed Top Song competition. His winning track was described on the Unearthed website as:
“… indie pop… while still being serious. And Seriously Good. The quirky instrumentation and lush harmonies make PJ's winning track "Skin And Bone" a standout winner”
This win came after a number of his demo’s were picked up and played on the station. Just prior to receiving the Triple J honour PJ was awarded a grant from the Foundation for Young Australians to help produce his current EP Arcadia Street, an collection of pop songs about death.
For years we've loved his last album, Storms Dreams and Flying Machines, and the new Arcadia Street is beautiful.
