Aloe Blacc

Description:

SATURDAY

* AUSLAN INTERPRETED *

In the years since Aloe Blacc’s last album, Lift Your Spirit, the global superstar spent time working on an even dearer project: his family. All Love Everything (Delux), his latest album, is the singer-songwriter’s first collection of material written as a father, a journey that expanded Blacc’s already heartfelt artistic palette. “Becoming a father made me want to share those experiences in music,” he says, admitting it’s a challenge to translate such a powerful thing into lyrics and melody. But the listeners who have followed Blacc over the course of his career know that his facility with language and sound is deep -- if anyone was up to the task, it’s him.

Raised by Panamanian immigrants in Southern California, Blacc grew up around the sounds of salsa, merengue, and cumbia. He initially developed his own taste by throwing himself into hip-hop before trying out his soulful voice to other ends. Across three albums, his sound evolved and grew, finding a pocket that reflects the long and beautiful history of American soul with timeless, descriptive songwriting that speaks to the broad range of human experience, from platonic love to love for humanity, from politics to aspiration. Versatile and compassionate, his songwriting is classic in a way that makes categorization irrelevant; indeed, Blacc’s lyrics have been paired with dance music and country -- always to stirring effect. Aloe Blacc isn’t defined by genre.

“Rather than a genre, my music follows a theme I call A.I.M.: affirmation, inspiration, and motivation,” he explains. Beloved hits like “I Need a Dollar,” “The Man,” and “Wake Me Up,” with Avicii, may not fall under the same musical umbrella, but they’re united by how they make the listener feel. That’s Blacc’s wheelhouse, the place where he excels. “After so many opportunities to talk about my music and not feel comfortable saying, ‘I’m a pop artist’ or ‘I’m a folk artist,’ I had this realization. My songwriting genre is thematic.”

Aloe Blacc’s most recent releases include a collaboration with singer/songwriter ZZ Ward, “Tin Cups” followed by “Free”, which was also written and produced by Blacc for the CNN political commentator Van Jones’ documentary ‘The First Step’, on his criminal justice reform journey to pass the First Step Act, which led to the release of thousands of citizens who have paid their debt to society.

On the 24th of February, Aloe Blacc unveiled a commemorative single, entitled "We Will Meet Again," in a gesture of solidarity with Ukraine, marking the first anniversary of Russia's aggressive incursion into the nation. The release was accompanied by a music video featuring Ukrainian virtual reality artist, Anna Zhilyaeva. Blacc was compelled to compose this emotionally charged song after bearing witness to heartrending news footage of families seeking refuge amidst the chaos of war.

Aloe Blacc is presently writing his next solo album and is expected to drop his first single in June 2023.

With her bold, clarion indie-rock music, Melbourne singer-songwriter Chitra Ridwan navigates the pressures and anxieties of relationships with the grace and dexterity of a dancer. Raised on the Bellarine Peninsula, Chitra found her calling in music early on, realising it was the world in which she felt safest and most seen.

Her acclaimed self-titled debut EP was a wise-beyond-its-years document of young adulthood that confirmed Chitra's preternatural talent as an observer of relationships and human behaviour.

Drawing from influences such as Big Thief's Adrienne Lenker and Julia Jacklin, and channelling the no-holds-barred honesty of classic 90s indie songwriters, it was a sharply-realised debut that announced Chitra as one of Melbourne's most talented songwriters.

Described as a "bold and affecting" songwriter by Triple J's Declan Byrne, Chitra quickly won praise and adulation from tastemakers including Triple R, Pilerats and Fbi Radio, as well as support slots alongside artists like Lisa Mitchell, Vacations and Jaguar Jonze. Later this year, Chitra will release her anticipated debut album, produced by John Castle (Cub Sport, Hatchie, Angie McMahon).

Emily Barker

Description:

SATURDAY
SUNDAY

Emily Barker is an award-winning singer-songwriter, best known as the writer and performer of the theme to the BBC’s hugely successful crime drama Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh. She has released music as a solo artist as well as with various bands and collaborations including The Red Clay Halo, Frank Turner, Vena Portae, Marry Waterson and Applewood Road (with whom she released a remarkable album of original songs recorded live around a single microphone, dubbed “flawless” by The Sunday Times) and has written for film, including composing the soundtrack for Jake Gavin’s lauded debut feature Hector starring Peter Mullan and Keith Allen.

Emily Barker’s latest album A Dark Murmuration of Words was produced by Greg Freeman and recorded at StudiOwz, a converted chapel in the Welsh countryside. Lyrically probing, by turns both dark and optimistic, Barker searches for meaning through the deafening clamour of fake news and algorithmically filtered conversation, delivering a timely exploration of the grand themes of our age through the lens of what it means to return “home.” Throughout the ten songs that make up the album, Barker draws connections between the familial, the local, and the global: a mother sings to her unborn child, asking for its forgiveness on ‘Strange Weather’; ‘When Stars Cannot Be Found’ explores the humbleness and comfort of the night sky when far away from home. Other highlights include the nostalgic ‘Return Me’, ‘The Woman Who Planted Trees’, the gloriously defiant ‘Machine’ and the effortless album closer ‘Sonogram’.

On its release, A Dark Murmuration of Words hit number 1 on the Official Americana Album chart in the UK and has garnered widespread acclaim.

“irresistibly catchy…an album replete with nooks and crannies, light and shade” The Australian ★★★★★
“an album of spare, striking beauty” Mojo ★★★★
“…a kind of Australian equivalent of PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake” UNCUT 8/10
“bold, direct, uncompromising” CLASH
“One of the most literate and probing folk albums of the year. I really love it.” Ann Powers, NPR Music

G. Love & Special Sauce

Description:

SATURDAY

* AUSLAN INTERPRETED *

G. Love & Special Sauce are creators of their own genre, “The Hip-Hop Blues”. They are known for their unique and laid back, rootsy sound, that encompasses Delta blues, hip hop, rock & roll soul and funk.

"I've been in the game a long time, but I've always considered myself a student," says G. Love. "Finishing this album with Keb Mo' felt like graduation."

Recorded in Nashville with a slew of special guests including Robert Randolph, Marcus King, and Roosevelt Collier, 'The Juice' is indeed diploma-worthy. Co-produced and co-written with GRAMMY-winning icon Keb Mo,' it's an electrifying collection, one that tips its cap to more than a century of blues greats even as it offers its own distinctly modern pop spin on the genre, mixing programmed beats and hip-hop grooves with blistering guitar and sacred steel. G. Love's lyrics are both personal and political here, artfully balancing his appreciation for the simple joys in life with his obligation to speak out for justice and equality, and his performances are suitably riotous and rousing to match, with infectious call-and-response hooks and funky sing-along choruses at every turn. Easy as it is to succumb to cynicism these days, the songs on 'The Juice' refuse, insisting instead on hope and determination in the face of doubt and despair.

"I've always tried to make music that's a force for positivity," G. Love explains. "It was important to me that this album be something that could empower the folks who are out there fighting the good fight every day. I wanted to make a rallying cry for empathy and unity."

Born Garrett Dutton in Philadelphia, PA, G. Love grew up equally enthralled with folk, blues, and rap, devouring everything from Lead Belly and Run D.M.C. to John Hammond and the Beastie Boys. After migrating to Boston, he and his band, Special Sauce, broke out in 1994 with their Gold-selling self-titled debut, which earned widespread critical acclaim for its bold vision and adventurous production. Over the next twenty-five years, G. Love would go on to release seven more similarly lauded studio studios albums with Special Sauce (plus four solo albums on his own), solidifying his place in music history as a genre-bending pioneer with a sound The New York Times described as "a new and urgent hybrid" and NPR called a "musical melting pot." G. Love's magnetic stage presence, meanwhile, made him a fixture on festival lineups from Bonnaroo to Lollapalooza, and his relentless appetite for tour and collaboration landed him on the road and in the studio with artists as diverse as Lucinda Williams, Dave Matthews, The Avett Brothers, Jack Johnson, and DJ Logic.
