Nancy Ruth (SPAIN) - SANGRIA JAM TOUR

Nancy Ruth's latest release ‘Sangria Jam’ is a musical journey recounting her travels and life in Spain. Combining her influences of jazz, latin and flamenco, she says: “I write what flows freely… I’m not trying to create a fusion, I just play what I feel. I’m a product of my experience and surroundings.”

Having toured Spain and Latin America in 2017, Nancy is looking forward to returning to Australia with shows in Adelaide, Drysdale, Ballarat, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. 

“Nancy Ruth, a powerful and talented singer, combines together jazz, flamenco and Latin rhythms in a natural way, creating a fresh genre that fits into all three idioms.” – Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene 

Alain Valodze (guitar) spans several decades of expressive guitar playing, combining elements of Flamenco, Brazilian and Moorish music with a Jazz sensibility.  

Enrico ‘Mick’ Morena (drums, percussion) has recorded and toured extensively with artists such as Kate Ceberano, Maroon Town, Joe Louis Walker, and Israel’s Aviv Geffen.  

Tony Hicks (saxophones, flutes) melds influences from collaborations with Indigenous Australian, Klezmer, Indian, jazz, ska, funk, electronic, minimalist and avant-garde musicians into an evocative contemporary voice that transcends cultural and stylistic boundaries  

Herbert Jimenez (electric bass) has played will numerous Latin bands such as Carlitos Way, as well as having performed with music legends Omara Portuondo and Angélique Kidjo.

Dave O'Leary sings it like it is, laconic and straight to the point with an honesty that gets under your skin Beej Barker combines driving rhythms and grooves to make the sound that is Exeter Blues; it’s raw and raucous, blurring the lines between early Mississippi delta slide guitar, modern punk funk and Cajun country sounds, these are story songs to move you built from a life spent on the road.

Naomi Keyte + Leah Senior (VIC) + Mary Webb

Naomi Keyte gives a voice to voiceless things: trees, colours, water, the very air we breathe.

Musically there is a delicate meeting of electronic pulses and rhythms, and physical vibration: nylon guitars, violins and pianos. Keyte and her band write and perform minimalist alt-folk pop music that sings to the heart and human experience. Their music resounds with the restraint and warmth of artists like Joni Mitchell, Julia Holter, Sharon Van Etten and Sufjan Stevens.

Keyte’s words are ‘beautifully simplistic and are drawn together to tell fascinating stories which she accompanies with vividly painted images’ (June Murtagh, The AU Review). Thoughtfully produced, the group’s music has a narrative in every string plucked and bowed, and a message conveyed in every beat struck and muted.

Josh Cashman & Band + Special Guests

It's been a whirlwind year for Josh Cashman. 2017 saw the 22-year-old showcase overseas, sign major deals and tour with our country's finest. Now, he can finally reveal what's in store for the rest of the year.

 The "Instinct" EP, out September 22, is the result of being locked in a studio for a fortnight with lauded producer Jan Skubiszewski (John Butler Trio, The Cat Empire, ILLY). Mastered by Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sounds (David Bowie, The Foo Fighters, The Weeknd), the 7 tracks evoke a newfound sense of confidence and maturity.

 Some of which Josh discovered while living in the States for two months earlier this year. He supported Tash Sultana around the country, played six showcases at SXSW in Texas, and headlined his first ever show in NYC at the infamous Rockwood Music Hall. Inspiration also came from multiple co-writing sessions in New York and LA.

 The momentum continued like a freight train when Josh returned home to a sold-out single launch for his single "Listening" at the Northcote Social Club, adding to the list of revered venues that the gifted self-taught musician has filled to capacity.

 And what better way to round out a huge year than to release the "Instinct" EP and embark on a national tour. Having recently signed with The Harbour Agency, Josh will play in major cities, as well as team up with Parlour Gigs to reach his regional fans. At this rate, there's no predicting what 2018 will hold.

“Humble, harmonic and heartfelt to the core, it’s no surprise that Josh Cashman’s honest style is taking the world by storm. His voice reveals strength, determination and a calibre of control that cannot be taught. He has raw talent!” – Katharine Kennedy, Happy Magazine.  

 “The young musician from Melbourne, with his emotion-filled nature, is comparable to that of Ed Sheeran. With his brooding tone and fast articulation mixed with his soothing guitar riffs and soft percussion, he’s really keeping it interesting.” Sara Tamim, Vulture Magazine.

Milton Man Gogh + Django Rowe Quartet

Milton Man Gogh (MMG) is an experimental trio, formed as an outlet for the members to play the original compositions that no-one else wanted to play. Having performed and recorded together in various freelance and original settings over the last few years, the boys felt that the combination of shit yarns, shit music, a tortured, self-mutilating artist and a certain domestic beer made perfect sense; they decided to go ahead and give it a Man Gogh.

 The result is an amalgamation of the core influences from each of the members; jazz, prog, contemporary classical and metal. Equally comfortable plundering sounds from Meshuggah and Donny McCaslin to Aphex Twin and Bela Bartok, MMG seeks to explore personal inquiry through composition, ultimately being brought to life in the studio and live performance.

 Milton Man Gogh’s debut album, Stress To Impress, was released October 10th, 2017 through iconic experimental Sydney label, Art As Catharsis to local and international acclaim.

MMG are absolutely thrilled to be performing at The Wheatsheaf, Thursday March 1st as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival, alongside local renowned Jazz Guitarist, Django Rowe and his Quartet. 

 ‘Milton Man Gogh excel at creating a diverse palate of emotions through frequent but deliberate changes in phrasing and playing dynamics. The sludge-ridden double-bass lines and aggressive, percussive insanity juxtapose almost too-perfectly with the many genuinely beautiful moments which catch the listener entirely off-guard, simultaneously becoming aware of the goosebumps running down their arm and the single tear welling in their eye.’ – William France, Heavy Blog Is Heavy

 Having secured a support from Ben Ford-Davies, Dave will be playing tracks from The Journey including local favorites “Promenade” and “Distant Ships” plus a few other influential favorites. It’s going to be a special night so be sure to bring ya la-la’s!

Z-Star Delta (UK) With Special guest: Stefan Hauk

Z-STAR DELTA (aka ‘the exploration vessel’) is the explosive powerful duo that was born on the road during a Z-STAR Australian tour. The two piece features Zee Gachette on lead vocals and drums, supported by an electric, slide, bass and synth wizard. Fast becoming hot music property in Australia and the UK, being hailed as the highlight of many a festival, thanks to their most legendary and powerful shows at Glastonbury, Mullum Music Festival, Blues at Bridgetown, Garden of Unearthly Delights, Mitchell's Creek Rock & Blues Fest, Penguin Pride, The Camden Assembly, The J Theatre, Oxjam and The Basement to name a few.

Zee’s captivating tone and grit have been likened to greats such as Nina Simone and Janis Joplin. But what’s even more striking is that these powerful vocals are being delivered whilst she drums with a compelling, Bo-Diddly inspired, tribal intensity “reminiscent of the White Stripes” according to The Echo.  Their debut single ‘I Put A Spell On You (Z-Star Delta Version)’ will be released in early 2018 to coincide with the announcement of their third headline Australian tour. But what’s so surprising is the amount of radio support the duo have received already for their raw, unpolished live studio recordings from their limited edition 'Face The Iron Ram' tour mixtape; from Triple J, to PBS, 4ZZZ, ABC, Hit FM, Koori, Noosa FM and more.

 ‘Z-Star Delta offer up a smorgasbord of tunes, effects and rhythms. One minute you’re rocking and then you’re in a Sci-Fi movie! Complex and enthralling!’ – Australian Stage

 ‘Nitrous-injected hyper-blues that spiritually hail from the Mississippi Delta…Charismatic, vibrant, original…shockwave of sonic power.” – 100% Rock Magazine

 “Wonderful voice, psychedelic word flow…hypnotic drumming.‘ – Blues in Britain

‘Electrifying…world-class live music.’ – SwampHouse

'Fast rising blues duo.’ – Beat Magazine

Shaun Kirk (VIC) ' Howlin' at the Moon' Tour + Laura Hill

Following the recent success of his Australian ‘Midnight in Motion’ Tour which saw award winning blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk selling out numerous headline shows across the country; the one man dynamo has announced a stack of new tour dates across Australia & New Zealand to launch his soon to be released new single ‘Howlin at the Moon’.

Kirk’s first release in over 3 years will come off the back of what the 29 year old describes as a “quarter-life crisis” ignited by a US Record Deal that fell through in questionable circumstances back in 2015. Determined to overcome his disappointment and grow from it, Kirk has since spent countless hours soul searching and honing his skills as a writer and musician inside his home studio on the outskirts of Melbourne; prevailing with a fresh new sound and groove to carry him into the next phase of his ever evolving career.

Recorded and co-produced with Nick Huggins (Jen Cloher, Fraser A Gorman, Skipping Girl Vinegar) at A Pocket Full of Stones Studios in the sleepy beachside town of Point Lonsdale, Victoria and co written with ARIA Award Winner Joel Quatermain (Eskimo Joe) – ‘Howlin at the Moon’ is set to drop in early 2018.
